Brezza Cedes Top Spot To Venue In July Sales

  • Aug 14, 2019

Compact sports utility vehicles (SUVs) are probably the fastest growing in India and every manufacturer wants to have a share of the market pie. While overall automobile sales have been rather disappointing for the fast several months, companies are going all-out to introduce new compact SUVs. The recently launched Hyundai Venue, surprisingly, managed to buck the trend and beat Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza to emerge as the segment topper in July sales.

Here’s how the cars performed in the month under review.

Hyundai Venue: The Venue sold 9,585 cars in July compared to 8,763 units in June. It was the only car in its class to register a month-on-month (MoM) growth. The Venue now commands a market share of 35 percent.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza: The Brezza was the segment topper for several months but have now been dethroned by the Venue. The Indo-Japanese carmaker sold 5,302 Brezzas in July, compared to 8,871 units in June. The Venue’s rollout seems to have hit the Brezza hard.

Mahindra XUV300: The XUV300’s sales have been rather steady despite the slowdown in the Indian car market. Mahindra sold 4,464 XUV300s in July, as against 4,769 units in June. Despite a more than six percent drop in MoM sales, the SUV 300 still managed to beat its six-month average of 3,885 units.

Tata Nexon: The Nexon’s MoM sales dropped almost 20 percent in July. It sold 3,344 units in the month under review, compared to 4,170 in June. The Venue and XUV300 have affected its sales. The Nexon’s year-on-year (YoY) market share has dropped by 3.49 percent.

Ford EcoSport: The compact crossover SUV has enjoyed a steady demand over time. Ford sold 3,137 EcoSports in July, a drop of just 3.59 percent which is the lowest in the segment. The EcoSport enjoys 16.72 percent market share.

Mahindra TUV300: The only seven-passenger car in the compact SUV segment sold 1,122 cars in July. It witnessed a 7.27 percent drop in sales, while its six-month average stood at 1,267 units
