It seems Creta mania is fast taking over the nation as the new Hyundai Creta has again been the best selling SUV of last month. Yes, in the month of June Hyundai sold 7207 units of the Creta and that makes it the largest selling SUV in India. The Creta was also the best selling SUV in May when the lockdown restrictions being lifted meant that car-makers re-started functioning again with their factories back in action.
The new Hyundai Creta was launched on March 16 but the nation-wide lockdown meant sales came at a halt for some time. Now the massive demand for the Creta can be seen. Hyundai has a lot of bookings at hand with 14,825 to be exact. Interestingly the diesel version has accounted for half the sales with diesel clearing being popular with SUVs. However the 1.5l petrol plus the 1.4 turbo petrol has also done good numbers with more demand for the automatic trims.
The Creta starts from just under the Rs 10 lakh mark with a price of Rs 9.99 lakh for the base trim. Also Hyundai is now the biggest SUV maker as with both the Creta and the Venue it has sold over 11,336 units. Its Venue has done 4129 units while the Creta has done 7207 units. It is unique that the bigger and more expensive Creta is outselling the Venue, which is at nearly double the price but that shows the appeal of the Creta brand. The Creta is in its second generation and even in its first generation the Creta was a strong seller and was the best selling car of Hyundai. But it is surprising and good to note that demand for SUVs like the Creta are on the rise which indicates the auto industry could come back to good health faster than we think.
