Top-Selling SUV In Dec 2021: When it comes to people’s favorite cars in the mid-segment, the names of Brezza and Creta remain high. However, in 2021, one such car in this segment has left behind both in terms of choice and sales. That car is Tata Nexon. Tata Nexon was the top selling SUV in the last year i.e. December 2021.
Tata Motors launched the Tata Nexon in 2017. In 2020, the company brought its updated variant. After this, Nexon became the first car, which gave commercial vehicle maker Tata a distinct identity in the passenger car segment. The sales figures of Tata Tiago and Nexon are showing steady improvement. The facelifted Nexon debuted almost two years ago with the Tiago, Tigor, the new Altroz and the Nexon EV and they have strengthened the car portfolio.
