Hyundai Creta led the way in the midsize SUV sales charts for the month of March 2021 ahead of Kia Seltos and MG Hector

Hyundai Motor India Limited had the Creta as its top-selling SUV in the country last month as it sat at the top of the midsize sales charts with 12,640 units as against 6,706 units during the same period in 2020 with a Year-on-Year volume increase of 88.5 per cent. The Seltos came in at second with 10,557 units as against 7,466 units in March 2020.

This led to a Year-on-Year sales surge of 41.4 per cent. Both have plenty in common including the platform and powertrains but the arrival of the second-generation Hyundai Creta in early 2020 did put the Seltos in the second position and as the months went by, the former continued to extend the volume gap every month to its Korean cousin.

With the midsize SUV segment getting plenty of attention from customers, naturally, more manufacturers are stepping in wanting to grab a big pie. The popularity is one of the reasons why Kia and MG debuted in the domestic market with Seltos and Hector respectively and they are reaping benefits out of them in nearly the last two years.
