These Best Selling Maruti Cars Conquered Top 5 Sales List For 4th Year, Crushed Competition
Maruti has announced that 5 cars from its stable have dominated the Indian market once again in 2020-21, as per compiled industry sales figures.
For the 4th consecutive year Swift, Baleno, WagonR, Alto and Dzire have occupied the positions of top 5 selling cars in India.
The Top 5
- Swift- 172,671 units
An updated version was launched earlier this year.
Alto was its sole competitor in the past.
- Baleno- 163,445 units
Despite emerging competition in recent times, the Nexa brand model has maintained a strong grip in terms of sales and popularity.
- WagonR- 160,330 units
Despite concerns of datedness, with its sales figures it is clear to see that the public is not ready to let it go yet.
- Alto- 158,992 units
A car that was once the legendary Maruti 800 that inspired Indians to buy their first car, neither does it need an introduction nor do its sales figures an explanation.
- Dzire- 128,251 units
Having secured the 5th selling position is no mean feat considering it has not seen any facelift or update in recent years.
