Maruti Suzuki Swift led the way ahead of Dzire, WagonR and Baleno in the top ten sales chart for the month of February 2022
In the second month of 2022, Maruti Suzuki had the Swift finish at the top of the sales standings as 19,202 units were sold against 20,264 units during the same period last year with a YoY de-growth of 5.24 per cent. Its compact sedan sibling, the Dzire, was the second most sold passenger car in the country last month with 17,438 units.
In comparison to the corresponding period in 2021 with 11,901 units, a massive YoY volume increase of 46.52 per cent was recorded.

The Baleno slotted in at fourth with 12,570 units against 20,070 units.
The premium hatchback endured a huge drop of 37.36 per cent as the production would have been low last month due to the arrival of the facelifted version which went on sale a few days ago. The heavily updated Baleno is expected to make a huge impact in the top ten sales table in the coming months as it gets a redesigned exterior and an all-new interior with a packed features list.
