Cape Town - In the compact crossover/SUV market, the Ford EcoSport established itself as a segment leader. The SUV also regularly appears as a top-10 contender among best-selling vehicles in South Africa.

In October 2017, the EcoSport again underlined its tag as another fan favourite when 1047 units were sold. The Hyundai Creta, which slots into second position, barely reached the 400-mark with only 395 units finding new owners.
