Hyundai Creta

Launched in mid-March 2020, Hyundai Creta is one of the most popular SUVs in town, and was unveiled at the Auto Expo. It saw a big boom in its sales during the lockdown imposed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Reports said that the carmaker apparently received a stunning 24,000 bookings but it sold only 3,212 units in May 2020. That’s a 65% decline in sales when compared to the same month last year. So, the number may not look eye-catching, but it’s much higher than the sales figures of all of Creta’s competitors combined. To elaborate, Kia Seltos sold 1,611 units, while Mahindra Scorpio clocked in 713 units, MG Hector stands at 672 units and the Tata Harrier sold 161 units.
