(Techz.vn) Mazda CX-5 is showing absolute dominance in the crossover segment by completely destroying hard rivals like the Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson.
According to a report of the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers Association (VAMA), in January 2021, sales of the Mazda CX-5 reached 1,016 units. Although compared with 1,854 units sold in December 2020, the number of CX-5 cars delivered to customers has decreased significantly but is still enough for Mazda to lead the C-class crossover segment.
Meanwhile, January 2021 saw a shock drop in sales of the Honda CR-V when this model sold only 359 units. Previously, there were 3,226 CR-V units sold in December 2020.
With a sharp decrease of 2,867 vehicles, Honda CR-V pityly gave up the top position in sales to rival Mazda CX-5. Even the “darling” of Honda has to rank behind the Hyundai Tucson when the Hyundai crossover, despite the decline in sales, still sold 624 cars. Notably, even the Honda CR-V and Tucson total sales were only 983 vehicles and not equal to the sales of the Mazda CX-5 in January alone.
Right below the Honda CR-V is the Mitsubishi Outlander with sales of 261 cars, down 352 units compared to December last year. Meanwhile, because TCIEV temporarily suspended production, Nissan X-Trail has not released data. Besides, Subaru Forester and “rookie” MG HS also have no sales figures.
