Takeaways:

Maruti Brezza’s Dominance continues: Despite a MoM decline of around 12 per cent, the Brezza remains the most popular car in the segment. While there is no specific reason behind the drop in Brezza’s sales, it could be due to the introduction of the XUV300, which has done fairly well in its first month. Notably, despite the introduction of a new model, the overall sales of the segment were down in Feb compared to Jan 2019.

Tata Nexon Gains: While the sales of other sub-4m SUV’s have declined in the month of February compared to January, the Nexon’s sales have gone up by 3.29 per cent. It continues to be the second most popular car in the segment with sales of more than 5000 units.

Mahindra TUV300 and Ford Freestyle try to avoid the last spot: While their siblings fight for the third spot, the TUV300 and the Freestyle remain at the bottom of the table with sales of just over 1000 units, both down by around 30 per cent.
