In the top 10 hatchbacks in Jan 2024 sales table, Maruti Suzuki Baleno led the way ahead of its siblings, WagonR, Swift and Alto

In the first month of the new calendar year, Maruti Suzuki’s Baleno finished on top of the hatchback sales charts with 19,630 unit sales as against 16,357 units during the same period last year with a YoY positive volume increase of 20 per cent. The WagonR was the second most sold hatchback last month with 17,756 units.

Compared to the same period in 2023 with 20,466 units, a YoY negative sales growth of 13.2 per cent was noted. The Maruti Suzuki Swift came in at third with 15,370 units as against 16,440 units in January 2023 with a YoY sales decline of 6.5 per cent. The drop in sales is due to the arrival of the next-gen Swift in the coming months.

It will get evolutionary exterior and interior changes while the features list will be upgraded substantially. A new 1.2L Z series three-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine will likely join the lineup and it will be paired with a manual or an automatic transmission option. The Alto entry-level hatchback finished in the fourth position with 12,395 units.
