10 Best Selling SUVs In January 2022

As the month passes by, certain changes are happening in the industry. Tata has been gradually making progress to beset Hyundai and take over second place in the race. It is the third-largest car manufacturer, just lagging by a small gap. We all know the SUV segment has been the most selling & trending for a while. Hyundai hoped to cope with January, but it appears to be beaten by Nexon & Punch. While Kia has also witnessed a slight overall decline, let’s look at the top 10 best selling SUVs last month:

  1. Tata Nexon

    Kia is also focusing on their new MPV, Carens. One might call it a bigger Seltos, but they are focused on loading it with the latest features & entering the MPV segment and trying to compete with the Ertiga.

    The venue is among the company’s top performers and has still managed to reach a decent number with a slight loss. Hyundai sold 10,360 units of their compact SUV, which is a little less when comparing YoY, which was 11,779.

    Punch and Nexon have deserved the credit for the growth Tata has enjoyed. With this speed and growing graphs, Tata might beat Hyundai in the long run.

  5. Hyundai Creta

    Creta is the most popular segment regardless of its position on the list. The sales number has always been well, but the supply crisis has caused an inevitable decline this time. Hyundai sold only 9,869 units of the mid-size SUV last month.

    Overall the Creta has been in more than 2 lakh homes since the facelift in 2020. But the current numbers mark a 20% decline compared YoY sales.

    But this is a temporary low as Maruti is working on a generation update for the Brezza. It is expected to launch this year and make their SUV more premium & feature loaded. The update will surely compensate for this decline.

  7. Kia Sonet

    Similar to its sibling Venue, Sonet has also witnessed a decline. Kia observed a 22% decline in Sonet’s sales. Unlike its elder sibling Seltos, it could not perform and keep up with the previous numbers.

    They only sold 6,904 units last month, which might worry the carmaker. This performance of Venue & Sonet might worry the company more with the rising competition and new launches.

    Mahindra must scale up the production to cater to the enormous number of bookings received for the Thar & XUV700. These sales numbers will go significantly higher when the product meets the demands.
