Maruti Brezza lost the No 1 position to Mahindra XUV300 in the month of May 2020
In the month of June 2020, Maruti Brezza has regained the top position for compact SUV segment. With diesel Brezza now discontinued, many expected Brezza to lose its edge in sales. But that seems not to be the case in June 2020. Sales of Brezza in June 2020 stood at 4,542 units. This is still a lot less than 8,871 units registered in same month last year.
But the good part is, sales have bounced by a huge margin when compared with May 2020 report. Brezza sales have increased almost 700% in June 2020, when compared to sales registered by this small SUV in May 2020. Same is the case for all other cars in the segment, except for Mahindra TUV300, which has failed to register any sales in the last 3 months.
On the 2nd spot in the list is Hyundai Venue, also one of the biggest rival to Brezza. Sales of Venue stood at 4,129 units in June 2020, as against 8,763 units in June 2019. This is a decline of 4,634 units or 52.88%. Unlike Brezza, which is offered only in petrol engine option, Venue is offered in two petrol and 1 diesel engine option.
