Medium size cars are dominant in the market and even after their moderate and medium prize they can give adequate profit to the firm because of their sale. In context of age category the customer have been chosen from the age group of 25-40 because at this age both type of customers exist in the market as mostly tend to have family and need space and confort and this is why they are customers for SUV and those who are from families with high purchasing power can buy luxury cars. Considering this facts age group of 25-40 has been chosen and other than this behavioural factors also differ and on those basis people who prefer luxury travel and posh lifestyle will be targeted for luxury cars and other than this those who like simple and comfortable travel will be targeted for medium cars. This will help company to increase their market share as the targeted customers involved various types of customer group.
