Hyundai Creta vs rivals

The Hyundai Creta is back, now in its second-gen avatar that comes with mechanical and feature upgrades and is looking to reclaim the top-spot of the segment. Its sibling, the Kia Seltos, is still topping the sales chart in March 2020. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that’s spread all across the globe has hugely affected the sales of all vehicles. India has also been in lockdown since March 24. Here’s how each of them fared in March:

Takeaways

Kia Seltos

  • Like we saw in the last few months, Kia’s SUV continues to be the best-selling compact SUV in March as well. However, its MoM (month-on-month) figure has gone down by over 45 per cent. Kia managed to ship less than 10,000 units of the Seltos in March. One of the reasons for the decrease in sales is certainly the arrival of the second-gen Hyundai Creta.

Hyundai Creta

  • Hyundai’s compact SUV, the Creta, is back in the market in its second-gen avatar. It currently holds the second largest market share of 45 per cent in the segment. Hyundai shipped 6,700-odd units of the SUV in March.

Nissan Kicks

  • The Nissan Kicks is the only SUV other than the new Hyundai Creta to register a positive month-on-month growth. It will soon be upgraded to meet the latest BS6 norms and is also expected to get a new powerful 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

Renault Duster

  • Renault’s Duster now holds a market share of 1 per cent as its MoM figure went down by almost 77 per cent. Renault launched the BS6 Duster recently, while the Duster Turbo variant is expected to be launched soon.

Mahindra Scorpio

  • While the Scorpio held the second spot in February, Mahindra only managed to ship 40 units of the SUV in March. Its month-on-month figures shrunk by over 97 per cent and the Scorpio now holds a market share of 0.26 per cent. The BS6 Scorpio still hasn’t been launched while the next-gen of the SUV will come in 2021.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross PetrolRenault Captur

  • The Maruti S-Cross and Renault Captur are yet to be upgraded to BS6 standards. Both the carmakers have stopped the production of their models. While Maruti is expected to launch the S-Cross petrol in May, the BS6 Captur is expected to be launched soon.
