Kia Carens sweeps the mid-size UV segment in February 2022 with sales of 5,109 units

Sub 4 meter or the sub-compact SUV space (Nexon, Brezza, Venue, Sonet, XUV300) has the highest demand. This is followed by Compact SUV space (Creta, Seltos, Kushaq, Taigun). Then comes the mid-size SUV space, which has pretty much come into existence rather recently.

While at one time, all eyes were set on the Jeep Compass, where sales is concerned, numbers have mostly been towards the bottom of the sales chart. Though for the brand, it is this car that has fostered the manufacturer’s presence in India. The segment has consistently seen new entrants. This has helped overall segment sales to grow considerably in a few short years.

Mid Size SUV Sales Feb 2022 – Carens Takes Lead

Not surprisingly, in February 2022, Kia Carens topped the chart at 5,109 units sold. The numbers aren’t unexpected considering the sales boost most new launches garner. Following launch, Kia reported improved sales in February 2022 for the considerable volume contribution by Carens. MoM sales growth is considerable, up from 575 units. Volume gain stood at 4,534 units.

Mahindra XUV700, which was usually the no 1 in the segment for the past few months, has slipped to No 2 for Feb 2022. XUV700 sales for January and February are at a plateau at similar numbers of 4,138 units, and 4,119 units. For the manufacturer, XUV700 initial demand has helped bolster sales.
