The resource “Autostat Info” summed up the results of sales in the segment of SUVs and crossovers in Russia in April of this year. Naturally, in the current environment, we did not have to count on any happy statistics – there aren’t any. Compared to April of the last year, sales in one of the most popular categories among Russians simply collapsed – it fell by more than 5.5 times compared to April 2021. If for the fourth month of the last year 85,999 cars were sold in the segment, for the fourth month of the current year – only 15,254 cars.
If last year the leader of the segment was Hyundai Creta, now it is Lada Niva Travel. In April 919 Niva Travels were sold. Creta is on the second place with the result of 895 sold cars (against 7345 a year ago), in the third place – Renault Duster: 765 Dusters were sold in April 2022 against 4189 in April last year. Fourth place in the rating is occupied by Lada 4×4 (549 sold cars), fifth place – Chery Tiggo 7 Pro with the result of 469 cars sold.
