INDIA SALES: Top 5 Utility Vehicles in November 2016

The Maruti Vitara Brezza continues to top utility vehicle sales in India. The topper in October 2016 with 10,056 units maintained its sales act with the much-in-demand compact SUV going home to 9,719 buyers in November.

Clearly, there’s no stopping this sales machine. Although hamstrung by capacity constraints, Maruti is rejigging production of other cars to accommodate demand for the Vitara Brezza (and the Baleno).

At No. 2 is Hyundai Motor India’s Creta which sold 6,822 units last month. The Creta, which is available with a choice of one petrol and two diesel engines. As an overall package, the Creta is hard to beat. It is above average in most areas and in some, it’s the class best. The styling, refinement, practicality and overall ease of use will appeal to the average SUV buyer who isn’t interested in off-road ability – the Creta’s biggest weakness. 


Maruti’s Ertiga MPV takes the third spot with 5,413 units. A popular fleet and family vehicle, this urban MPV based on the Swift platform has been a game-changer for the country’s largest carmaker since its launch in 2012. Offered with a host of engine options ranging from petrol, CNG and diesel variants, and more recently an SHVS mild hybrid variant, the Ertiga is a consistent high seller.

Mahindra & Mahindra’s warhorse, the Bolero, takes the fourth place in the Top 5 UV list with 4,939 units. However, expect this UV to come under pressure in the coming months mainly because of the demonetisation-caused cash crunch in rural India.

Toyota Kirloskar Motor’s Innova Crysta completes the Top 5. The Innova has always been a big selling UV and with the new Crysta, Toyota has not only enhanced the Innova's core strengths of space, comfort, practicality and quality but has addressed its key weaknesses too. It's no longer underpowered or under-equipped, and it looks very modern too. For those who want a luxury MPV to carry friends and family around in comfort, there is no better choice. Which is why this Toyota is a regular in the best-selling UV list.
