The SUV segment currently commands the highest share in the passenger vehicle (PV) market at nearly 43%. The availability of some formidable models has definitely aided the growth.

During the same month, the Hyundai Creta clocked its best-ever monthly volumes, since its launch in India way back in 2015, at 15,037 units.
