Maruti Suzuki Ertiga posted 13,434 units in July 2021 against 8,504 units during the same period last year with 58 per cent growth
Maruti Suzuki India Limited introduced the Eritga many years ago and it received its second-generation back in late 2018. The latest version of the MPV managed to keep the popularity of the old model intact and it has carved a path of its own considering its consistency. In the month of July 2021, the Ertiga posted 13,434 units to lead the way ahead of a number of people movers.
In comparison to the same month in 2020 with 8,504 units, the MPV recorded 58 per cent YoY volume increase. The Mahindra Bolero MPV garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 6,491 units against 4,360 units during the corresponding month in 2020 with 49 per cent sales surge. Only recently, Mahindra introduced the Bolero Neo, which is essentially the facelifted TUV 300.
The Toyota Innova Crysta finished in the third position with 6,093 units in July 2021 against 2,927 units during the same period last year with 108 per cent increase in volumes. The Maruti Suzuki XL6, a more premium six-seater version of the Ertiga with frontal changes, posted 4,190 units to finish in the fourth position against 1,874 units in July 2020.
