SUV Sales July 2020
Creta remains the undisputed king of the midsize SUV segment

July 2020 SUV sales proves that once again, people are moving towards the high-riding vehicles by the bucket loads. Why would they not? Several manufacturers are in contention in the SUV segment and people are duly spoilt for choice.

Midsize SUVs are led by the Hyundai Creta at 11,549 units sold, a growth of 75 percent. Its sister car, the Kia Seltos came second as Kia sold 8270 units in July.

Third came the Scorpio with slight sales increase at 3135 units, followed by the Hector and Harrier which saw a solid 34 percent and 33 percent rise, respectively. The remainder of the list saw sales plummet badly. Models like the XUV500, Compass, Duster and the Kicks saw numbers decline badly.

Overall sales of July 2020 midsize SUV sales grew by 89 percent. One more heartening thing about the segment is that the two EVs, the MG ZS EV and the Kona Electric have fetched decent sales.

Ford Endeavour came second, again posting more sales than last month, but lesser than the year before. German cars Tiguan and Kodiaq saw 65 percent and 34 percent increase in sales.

While Hyundai managed to sell 63 units of the Tucson, a 34 percent rise in sales, the rest, comprising Honda CR-V and Mahindra Alturas G4, did not fare well.
