The compact SUV segment is becoming increasingly popular in the Indian market. Recently, Renault and Nissan have launched their most affordable SUV models, the Kigger and the Magnet. In a very short time, both of these SUVs have gained a lot of popularity among the customers, but Renault Kigar has surpassed the Nissan Magnet in terms of sales.
According to the report, Renault sold a total of 3,839 units of its famous SUV Kieser last March, while only 2,987 units of the Nissan Magnet could be sold during this period.
