Published On September 17, 2019 02:41 PM By Sonny Rex at CarDekho.com

The demand for the XUV300 and Nexon dropped much more than the others

  • The Hyundai Venue still the most popular sub-4m SUV right now with over 9,000 units shipped.

  • Maruti Vitara Brezza’s month-on-month demand grew by 34 per cent.

  • Mahindra XUV300 month-on-month figures dropped by over 40 per cent.

  • The Ford EcoSport was the third most popular sub-4m SUV in August.

  • Tata Nexon’s demand dropped by over 30 per cent in terms of month-on-month growth.

The sales figures of sub-4 metre SUVs continued to drop in the month of August despite the resurgence of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. That said, the recently launched Hyundai Venue is still the highest seller, but it too saw a slight dropoff in demand. The biggest month-on-month losers in the segment though, were the Nexon and XUV300. The segment sales shrunk by six and a half per cent overall as compared to July 2019.

Here’s a detailed look at how each SUV in the segment performed in August 2019:
