Top 5 SUVs to Sell in March 2024

Of the top five SUVs sold in March, two were from Tata and one each from Hyundai, Mahindra and Maruti Suzuki.

In recent years, SUVs have taken about 50% of the market share. This testifies to consumer sentiment favoring SUVs and high-riding crossovers over traditional hatchbacks and sedans. As a result, most of the OEMs in India as well as globally have focused on developing more SUVs and crossovers, which has led to many such launches.

Let’s take a look at the top five best-selling SUVs in the month of March 2024.

Top 5 SUVs to be sold in March 2024

tata punch

Tata Punch was not only the best selling SUV but also the best selling car in the month of March 2024 with a volume of 17,547 units. During the same period last year, Punch recorded volume of 61% resulting in a year-on-year growth of 61% last month. A major reason for this is the inclusion of the all-electric Punch EV in the lineup a few months ago.

Hyundai Creta

Hyundai Creta was the second best SUV and passenger car sold in March this year with 16,458 units, registering a growth of 17% year-on-year. The compact C-segment SUV got a major facelift in January this year which could be a major reason for the increase in sales figures.
