Honda HR-V is No.1 in Thailand for July 2022, records highest monthly sales, closes gap with Corolla Cross 01

Vying for the top of Thailand’s compact SUV sales in 2022 are the Honda HR-V and the Toyota Corolla Cross. It has been a hotly contested fight between the two SUVs but every month, only one of them will take the crown and in July, it is the HR-V’s turn to take the title.

According to Thailand sales data, 2,410 units of the HR-V were sold in the Kingdom in the seventh month of the year. That’s the HR-V’s highest monthly sales figure in the year so far which translates to nearly 40% market share.

Sitting at the bottom of the compact SUV sales in Thailand is the Hyundai Creta with a mere 11 units sold for the month. While Hyundai is looking to expand its footing in Southeast Asia by setting up a plant in Indonesia, it seems not every market would be as accepting as the archipelago.
