India among the world’s top compact SUV markets


India overtook Japan in 2017 as the third largest manufacturer of compact SUVs.

Big players such as Renault, Mahindra & Mahindra, Ford Motor, Hyundai Motor, Maruti Suzuki and other SUV manufacturers sold 457,698 compact SUVs in 2017 – over four times the unit sales in 2015, at 107,634.

While 2016 saw shrinking sales for this vehicle category in China and the USA, sales in India grew nearly 50% from 307,365 units in 2016.

Will India overtake China as the world’s largest compact SUV market?
