Maruti Brezza sales record new

After losing to newly launched Hyundai Venue for a few months, Maruti Brezza is back on top for the 2nd consecutive month as the India’s best selling compact SUV. In Oct 2019, a total of 10,227 units of Maruti Brezza were sold.

Though this is a decline of 35% when compared to sales registered by Brezza in Oct 2018, it is still enough to list the Brezza as No 1 sub 4m SUV in India. On the second spot is Hyundai Venue, which has registered sales of 8,576 units. Hyundai Venue sales for Oct 2019 have increased by 8%, as against Sep 2019 sales.

Unlike Brezza, which is only offered with diesel engine, Venue is offered with petrol as well as diesel engine option. But despite this, Venue is having hard time defeating Brezza in sales. What has helped Brezza is huge discount offers. Below is the detailed sales table of sub 4 meter SUVs sold in Oct 2019.
