Maruti's Brezza ranked third in the list and was also the best-selling SUV. Baleno slipped to the fourth spot - probably Maruti is prioritizing Fronx production?
Hyundai's Creta retained the crown as the highest-selling Mid SUV and ranked sixth in the list. However, it was closely followed by Maruti's Grand Vitara which took the 10th spot.
