Brezza beats Venue again in October 2019 to become the best selling Compact SUV!

The Compact SUV grew a modest 12% in Oct’19 v/s Oct’18. The segment had 2 big launches this year – first Mahindra’s XUV300 and later Hyundai’s Venue. Venue had toppled the segment topper Brezza initially; however Brezza has regained the throne since past 2 months. The way forward though is going to be tough for Brezza as the clarity on diesel engine offering isn’t there and Kia too is looking forward to enter this highly competitive segment. In Oct’19 too; Brezza volumes dropped -35% when compared to Oct’18.

5,240 units of Renault Triber shipped in Oct’19!

MUV segment grew an impressive 32% YoY in Oct’19 and was led by the sales of new entrants in the segment (Triber, XL6 & Refreshed Ertiga). Triber is proving to be a lifesaver for Renault and is slowing gathering acceptance due to the tremendous value it is offering at the price point. Ertiga + XL6 too are creating wonders for Maruti Suzuki – The duo sold an impressive 11,525 units in Oct’19 and took the MUV game to altogether a differing level! Marazzo is slowly losing the sheen and the Ertiga+XL6 success is wiping out Marazzo’s volumes. Surprisingly, Innova’s numbers are also dipping – Will be interesting to see how Kia’s next launch (Carnival) will fare at this segment and Innova price point?


Kia Seltos remains the No.1 Selling Mid-SUV in Oct’19!

The Mid-SUV segment grew a stellar 40% YoY last month and was supported by the sales of newcomers (Seltos, Hector & Harrier). The ex-Market Leader Creta has saw a very stiff competition from sibling Seltos and the model now feels dated in comparison. Creta is experiencing high discounting on field and we anticipate the discounts to go even higher with the approaching year-end.
