The Hyundai Creta led the way ahead of Toyota Innova Crysta and Mahindra Bolero in diesel car sales in the month of February 2021

Since the arrival of the BSVI emission standards in April 2020, the popularity of the diesel cars had only shrunken than it already was and their usage was limited to only a few segments due to a number of reasons – primary being the oil-burner equipped variants not making a strong business case cost-wise in upgrading to meet the more stringent emission norms.

However, some of the carmakers did keep their faith in diesel cars and they have suitably been rewarded overtime courtesy of the boom in premium segments. Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has the Creta as its best-selling SUV in the country in February 2021 as 12,428 units were sold and of which, 7,558 units were for the diesel-spec trims.

The statistics suggest that only 4,870 Hyundai Creta’s dispatched last month were petrol. The Toyota Innova Crysta was the second most sold diesel passenger vehicle in the domestic market last month as 5,886 units were recorded with only 137 units favouring the 2.7-litre petrol engine in the premium people carrier.
