Hyundai Motor India Limited has derived plenty of benefits from its recently launched compact SUV, the Hyundai Venue which has witnessed a remarkable improvement in sales number for the past months. The dominating position in the Indian compact SUV segment had been defended by the Maruti Vitara Brezza until July 2019 when it was taken over by the Venue with 9,342 units sold. Last month, the first connected SUV in India continued to maintain its first position by selling 9,342 units, exceeding the Vitara Brezza, which was in the second position by selling 2,223 units.
