Hyundai launched two flagship models this year. First it launched the Alcazar, its first three-row SUV for the Indian market. Later, it brought in its first N Line model i20 as well.

Alcazar was launched back in June this year, at a starting price of 16.30 lakh, and it was placed to take on some of the other three-row SUVs like the Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus. With the launch of the Mahindra XUV700 on Thursday, the Alcazar now has quite a competition at hand. Alcazar received more than 11,000 bookings in less than a month of its launch. But it did not consolidate much as the carmaker reported that bookings crossed only 14,000 by end of July.

Hyundai Creta, which has been one of the biggest success stories for the Korean carmaker in India in recent times, also failed to lift the sales numbers this time. Hyundai Creta has been consistently leading the compact SUV segment in terms of sales for the past several months. Both Creta and Alcazar have ensured that Hyundai remains the leader in the SUV market in India.

Hyundai also drove in the i20 N Line model to India early last month. Launched at 9.84 lakh, it is targeted towards the urban enthusiasts. Hyundai hopes the success of the i20 model to also rub in on its first N Line model for India.
