    Hyundai and affiliate Kia have an iron grip on India's SUV market.

    The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers said on Wednesday that 34.5 percent of SUVs sold in India last month were made by the two automakers.

    Hyundai led the market by selling 18,538 cars and Kia followed it with 15,931 cars. Hyundai's Venue was the best-selling model in the country last month with 10,554 cars sold, and Kia's Seltos was in second place with 10,488 cars.

    India's domestic automaker Tata sold 10,096 Nexons in the same period.

    The two Korean automakers account for 38.5 percent of the SUV market with cumulative sales of 369,000 cars in the first 10 months of this year. Last year, they claimed a combined 44.6-percent share.

    Korean cars are proving popular in India because of their competitive prices and convenient features.
