We are now switching from cars to utility vehicles. To simplify the tabulations, we will combine all MPVs, CUVs, and SUVs together as utility vehicles since most share the same purpose.
Like in past years, the Suzuki Wagon R takes the crown as the best selling city/kei utility vehicle by selling 283,765 units in 2015. The Wagon R is a MPV sold primarily in Japan, Indonesia, and India. If you remember, Suzuki also sold the best selling city/kei car, the Suzuki Swift. This should be of no surprise considering Suzuki’s long standing leadership in small cars globally.
One of the interesting aspects of the Wagon R is that though it is sold as a 5-seater in India and Japan, Suzuki of Indonesia specifically sells a long-wheel-base version with seven seats. There is also a “hotter” version called the Wagon R Stingray sold in India and Japan.
The second best selling city/kei sized utility vehicle was the Honda N-WGN, which is kei MPV sold in Japan, and sold 96,038 units in 2015.
