Timing is Important: The Tata Nexon’s great performance came just at the right time. It was launched with some updates not long ago, and the electric version of the Nexon (called Nexon EV) also came out. These new models got a lot of attention and helped the Nexon sell well.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza: While the Tata Nexon did really well, the Maruti Suzuki Brezza was also a strong player. It got the second spot with 15,001 units sold. But it had a small drop of 3% compared to last year, which shows that the competition is tough among SUVs.

Kia Sonet’s Decline: The Kia Sonet was popular before, but in September 2023, it didn’t sell as well. It sold 4,984 units, which is 46% less than last year. But there’s good news because a new and improved Kia Sonet will come out in early 2024.
