Amid the increasing craze of SUVs in India, demand for sedan cars has come down somewhat. During the last few years, the choice of buyers has changed. When the same features are available at the same price, then buying an SUV becomes a more sensible decision. The reason for the change in the mindset of the people is compact SUVs which have become more comfortable, they get more space and more features are started in their kit. At almost the same prices, the customer will definitely opt for an SUV with a strong presence on the road. However, it cannot be said that this is a challenging time for all sedan cars.
For example, like the compact and sub-compact SUV segment, the C-segment sedan segment has seen a lot of sales due to a number of attractive offerings. However, it cannot be compared to the SUV segment in terms of sales. Nevertheless, when considering other segments of the sedan category, their performance cannot be said to be very poor. With many attractive offerings, the C-segment sedan space is still a bargain.
