Sales of models in the compact SUV class remained high in February 2022 and guess what, it was Tata’s Nexon that dominated the segment yet again.

The Indian automaker retailed 12,259 units of the Nexon last month, while during the same period, Korean firm Hyundai sold 10,212 units of its Venue.

Third place in the list was occupied by the Maruti Vitara Brezza as it found 9256 new homes last month and in a distant fourth place came the Kia Sonet which registered sales of 6154 units.

Up next is the Mahindra Thar, 5072 units of which were delivered to customers in February, and its stablemate, the XUV300, followed suit with 4511 unit sales.
