None of the other compact SUVs were even close to the 10,000-unit mark

Hyundai’s second-gen Creta was launched in March 2020 and it has since been one of the best-selling compact SUVs every month. In October as well, it outperformed its cousin, the Kia Seltos, in the sales charts. While the monthly demand for the Kia continues its marginal decline, all other compact SUVs recorded a positive month-on-month growth in sales. Let’s take a look at how each SUV performed:

Takeaways:

Hyundai Creta

  • With over 14,000 units shipped, Hyundai’s compact SUV holds the largest market share of almost 47 percent. It even enjoyed a month-on-month increase of nearly 14 percent after recording a sale of more than 12,300 units in September.

Kia Seltos

  • The Kia Seltos’ figures have slipped down again when compared to September 2020. In fact, it is the only compact SUV to witness a negative month-on-month (MoM) growth in October. It still has the second highest market share of nearly 30 percent.

Mahindra Scorpio

  • Mahindra’s ladder-on-frame compact SUV, the Scorpio, took the third spot with 3,961 units shipped. Its market share has shrunk by over 23 percent compared to this time last year, likely due to the addition of the Seltos and the resurgence of the Creta.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross

  • The petrol-only Maruti S-Cross stuck to fourth place with a tally of 2,526 units. Maruti shipped 428 more units compared to September and it was the only other compact SUV to reach four-digit figures.

Renault Duster

  • Renault’s compact SUV, the Duster, saw the highest month-on-month growth of 172 percent but still shipped only 362 units. One of the reasons for this surge in demand could be the recently introduced Turbo variants of the SUV.

Nissan Kicks

  • Like September 2020, the Nissan Kicks took the last spot in the October sales chart as well. With only 122 units sold in the month, it has a market share of a mere 0.4 percent.

  • The segment will soon witness more competition from the Skoda VISION IN and VW Taigun SUVs that are expected to be launched in early-2021.

  • Overall, the segment witnessed a MoM growth of 9.82 percent with the total sales number standing at 29,894 units.
