The Venue’s arrival has dealt a serious blow to the Vitara Brezza’s monopoly in the segment

  • Vitara Brezza is the only SUV to record a negative MoM growth in the segment.

  • More than 7000 units of the Venue sold in a month.

  • XUV300 has broken into the 5K club.

  • Nexon keeps a hold of its market share.

  • EcoSport consistent as always in its numbers, records more than 3000 unit sales.

While the automobile industry has seen sales go down as a whole this month, the sub-4 metre SUVs segment is booming. No other SUV other than the Vitara Brezza saw a negative MoM growth in May 2019. Have a look at the table below for more data on the same.

Vitara Brezza’s Top Spot Under Threat: Sales of the Vitara Brezza have plummeted in May 2019 with a more than negative 25 per cent MoM growth recorded. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Hyundai’s Venue is the reason behind this. It remains to be seen if the drop in numbers is a one-month thing or it is a trend that is going to stick as June will become Venue’s first full month of being on sale.

Hyundai Venue Breathing Down Brezza’s Neck: The Venue’s slick looks, premium interiors and latest features seem to have worked wonders for it. Customers who would have originally opted for a Vitara Brezza are flocking to Hyundai showrooms to get their hands on the Venue. What remains to be seen is if the Venue can maintain its steam going ahead.

Mahindra XUV300 Builds On Its Impressive Numbers: Since its launch, the XUV300 has been selling in decent numbers and the Mahindra SUV has now broken into the 5K club. It is competing with two heavyweights (the Vitara Brezza and the Venue) in the segment.
