Another month filled with lots of new car launches and unveils has passed by. In July, we saw new launches like the Citroen C3 and the Volvo XC40 Recharge. We also saw new car unveils like the Hyundai Tucson, Toyota Urban Cruiser HyRyder and the Maruti Grand Vitara. SUV sales continue to fly high in the market. Like every month, today we will be discussing the top-selling SUVs of July 2022. Let’s begin.
Unsurprisingly, the Tata Nexon has once again topped the SUV sales chart in July. It has made to the top spot on its own in the last six to seven months. So, how has Nexon managed to fly so high in sales? It has to be for its overall value-for-money quotient. Tata sold 14,214 units of the Nexon in July. In comparison, Tata sold 14,295 units in June. Riding on the success of the Nexon and its other cars, Tata has recorded its highest ever sales number. It recorded monthly sales of 47,505 units registering a Y-o-Y growth of 57%.
Top SUVs in July – Hyundai Creta
Close on Nexon’s heels is the Hyundai Creta with 12,625 units sold in July. In the last two to three months, the Creta has definitely given a close fight to the Nexon. Can Creta dethrone Nexon’s monopoly at the top? For that, we will have to wait. As a product, the Creta is known for its features and a wide variety of engine & transmission options. The upcoming facelift is expected to assist the nameplate in acquiring the top spot once again.
Following the Hyundai Creta is its younger sibling, the Venue. In June, Hyundai launched the new Venue with a plethora of cosmetic changes. Hyundai has also added several new features to the Venue. The recent update has helped this compact SUV achieve 12,000 sales in July. This is a decent increase from the 10,321 units the brand sold in June.
The second Tata car on the list is the Punch. This SUV could be called a gamble which really brought in fortunes for the brand. The Punch is raking in good sales along with the Nexon. Tata sold 11,007 units of the Punch in July (a decent increase from the 10,414 units it sold in June).
Maruti Suzuki Brezza
The Brezza is back where it belongs. In the last few months, this SUV has been in & out of the list. The main reason was this new avatar that everyone was waiting for. The updated Brezza comes with a new design and tons of new features. Maruti sold 9,709 units of the Brezza in July, and we expect the numbers to only go up from here.
Top SUVs in July – Kia Seltos
Kia’s front runner in sales continues to be the Seltos. The Seltos established the brand in India, and it continues to strengthen the brand. Why is the Seltos so popular? It is known for its features and bold design. Kia sold 8,541 units of the Seltos in July. In comparison, Kia sold 8,388 units in June.
Following the Seltos is its younger sibling, the Sonet. Sonet generated a lot of hype with its design and features. The Sonet comes with one of the most premium interiors in its segment. So what are its sales figures? The Sonet has stabilised its sales in the 5000 to 7000 range. Kia sold 7,215 units of the Sonet in July. In comparison, it sold 7,455 units in June.
Toyota Urban Cruiser
Surprisingly, the Urban Cruiser has also made its way into the top-selling list. Toyota doesn’t seem to be bringing an updated Urban Cruiser. For now, people seem to be happy with the currently-available Urban Cruiser. Toyota sold 6,724 units of the Urban Cruiser in July. A substantial increase from the 5,301 units it sold in June.
Top SUVs in July – Mahindra XUV700
The XUV700 is steadily climbing up the sales chart. As a product, Mahindra has a big backlog of bookings on the XUV700, but Mahindra is still navigating through the chip shortage. Mahindra sold 6,277 units of the XUV700 in July. In comparison, it sold 6,022 units in June. The sales are expected to see a major boost once the chip shortage issue is solved.
