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.

Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) had the Ertiga as the top-selling MPV in the country in the month of April 2021 as 8,644 units were sold. It was followed by the Mahindra Bolero MUV as the workhorse registered 6,152 unit sales.

The XL6 recorded a cumulative domestic tally of 3,373 units. The Renault Triber finished in the fifth position with 2,426 units ahead of Kia’s Carnival with 301 unit sales and its aggressive price range below the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is helping in gathering customers.

Its market positioning meant that more rivals could hop on the bandwagon in the not-so-distant future. Kia will introduce an all-new vehicle in early 2022 and it will more likely be a seven-seater MPV. Codenamed KY abroad, it is said to be based on the same platform as the Seltos mid-size SUV and expect it to use a similar powertrain lineup.

It could comprise a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine with manual and automatic transmission choices. The Kia KY could be slotted between the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and Toyota Innova Crysta and thus it could directly rival Mahindra Marazzo. Hyundai could bring in a premium MPV along the same lines as well.

The Datsun Go+ posted a total of 31 units in the month of April 2021 and 25 units of the Toyota Vellfire were despatched during the same period. Toyota’s Hiace 14-seater MPV has also reached showrooms and only 50 units are allotted in the first batch.
