With the newly launched Alcazar kicking in volumes and the dream run of Creta continuing, Hyundai is well-positioned to dominate the SUV turf. Though, recently on the total UV volume front, it has been facing a lot of competition from MSIL. But, the UV segments in which Hyundai has its cars, have lesser competition for them. However, the hatchback segment remains an area where customers would love to have more offerings from Hyundai.
