Cruising to Victory: Full Size SUV Sales Jan 2024 Strong for Fortuner, Gloster, Tiguan, and Kodiaq

In January 2024, Toyota recorded 3,213 units sold, compared to 3,698 units in the same month the previous year, representing a 13% YoY sales decline.


Full Size SUV Sales Jan 2024: With 3,213 sales in January 2024 compared to 3,698 sales in the same month the previous year, and a YoY negative volume growth of 13%, Toyota’s Fortuner maintained its dominant position atop the full-size SUV sales charts. It is anticipated that the Ford Endeavour, one of the Fortuner’s most formidable competitors, will reappear via the CBU route in 2019.

Toyota has been gradually introducing the Hilux mild hybrid in a number of international markets, and it is currently considering launching a Fortuner with a similar specification. India may be among the first nations to adopt this technology due to the Fortuner’s enormous popularity there. The GD series diesel engine’s acceleration, fuel efficiency, and overall performance are all enhanced by this mild hybrid system.

Furthermore, less CO2 emissions will be produced. After selling 139 units compared to 244 units in the same period in 2023, the MG Gloster finished in second place, experiencing a 43% YoY volume decline. We anticipate a mid-cycle update for the seven-seater in the upcoming months, since the test mule has already been spotted conducting testing.
