Only two models (Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza) managed to breach the 10,000-unit sales mark in December

SUVs continue to garner a lot of demand among Indian buyers and have more or less turned out to be their preferred cars in recent years. If you are in the market for an SUV, the most affordable ones that you can buy are placed in the sub-4m space. Here’s a look at how each model in this segment performed in December 2020 sales:

Takeaways

Hyundai Venue

  • Hyundai’s sub-4m SUV, the Venue, turned out to be the crowd favourite in December as the carmaker shipped over 12,300 units of it, resulting in a market share of almost 28 percent.

  • Stepping up a rank from November sales, the Maruti Vitara Brezza's demand recovered and took the second spot on the chart in the last month of 2020. Its month-on-month (MoM) figure went up by a little over 56 percent.

  • The Tata Nexon took the third spot in December 2020 sales as Tata shipped 800-odd units more of the SUV compared to November.

Kia Sonet

  • While the Kia Sonet topped the charts in November, its numbers have dipped considerably in December 2020. In fact, its MoM figure went down by nearly 48 percent, the highest in the segment.

  • The Mahindra XUV300’s sales numbers stood at 3,974 units in December 2020. It was the only sub-4m SUV along with the Tata Nexon whose year-on-year (YoY) market share figure witnessed a positive growth.

  • Toyota’s Maruti Vitara Brezza-based Urban Cruiser stuck to its second-to-last spot on the chart in December 2020 as well. Its market share in the same month stood at 4 percent.

  • Ford’s EcoSport is the only SUV in the segment that registered sales of less than 1,000 units.

  • The segment, overall, witnessed a very small growth of around 1.4 percent compared to November 2020. MoM growth figures of the Vitara Brezza and Venue seemed to even out the MoM decline for its rivals in December 2020.

Nissan Magnite

These numbers are likely to shoot up in the coming months given the popularity of the Nissan Magnite. Renault’s Kiger is also expected to be launched in the next couple of months and that could push the segment’s figures further north.
