Despite enduring big volume decline in September 2019 as in the previous months, Maruti Suzuki stayed put the dominance courtesy of its entry-level models. The Swift hatchback came in at third with 12,934 units and the Wagon R launched only at the beginning of this year endured a cumulative volume of 11,757 units in fourth.
The Baleno slotted in at fifth with 11,420 units ahead of Vitara Brezza with 10,362 units.

Recently, Maruti Suzuki introduced the XL6, the more premium version of the Ertiga sold at Nexa, as well as S-Presso in the domestic market to capitalise on the festive season and to revive sales fortunes. The impact of the S-Presso in the monthly sales table will be an interesting prospect as it competes against Renault Kwid and the likes.
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) had three models in the top ten as Elite i20 ended up seventh with 10,141. Others models in the top ten finished below the 10,000 mark as Maruti Suzuki Eeco that stands in for the now-defunct Omni came home in the eighth position with 9,949 units in September 2019.
The arrival of the third generation Hyundai Grand i10 Nios has helped in the hatchback’s sales revival as it finished ninth with 9,358 units while the Venue ended up in the tenth position with 7,942 units. The battle between the Vitara Brezza and Venue is far from over as both could exchange top spots in their segments in the coming months.
