Tata Nexon is India's safest sub-four meter SUV as it scored 5-star rating at the Global NCAP crash test. Moreover, the XUV300 is the recent offering by Mahindra which looks smart and comes loaded with segment first features. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza stills remain king of the segment but, the new cars coming in the competition can harm the sales of the car in upcoming months. Maruti Suzuki has managed to sell 11,785 units of Vitara Brezza in April 2019. Ford EcoSport acquires the 4th position in the competition by selling almost 3,200 units. Moreover, Hyundai is all set to launch its first sub-four meter SUV named as Venue which will hit the Indian shores by 21st of May. Hyundai estimates to sell about 8,000-10,000 units of that SUV each month.
