The Tata Punch, the Citroen C3, and the Maruti Suzuki Ignis are some of the cars that the Exter compete with. Since May, when Hyundai started taking orders for its small SUV, the Punch, more than 22,000 units have been sold. During the same time period, Citroen C3 and Maruti Suzuki Ignis, two other cars that compete with Exter, have sold a lot less units. Nearly 1,500 Citroens were sold, while almost 8,900 Marutis were sold.
With its attractive price and features, the Exter is expect to give the best-selling car in its class, the Punch, a lot of trouble. Garg thinks that the sales of 10,000 to 11,000 small SUVs each month will double.
