Maruti Suzuki Dzire was the most sold sedan in India in February 2022 ahead of Tata Tigor, Honda Amaze and Hyundai Aura
In the sedan segment, the dominance of Maruti Suzuki’s Dzire is second to none as the compact model has long been the flag bearer. It often beats its competition by multiple folds in sales numbers and last month was no different, as 17,438 units were recorded against 11,901 units during the same period in 2021 with a massive YoY volume increase of 47 per cent.
The sub-four-metre sedan has its CNG version introduced as well and is offered in the mid-spec VXi and top-end ZXi trims with a starting price of Rs. 8.14 lakh (ex-showroom). The Dzire CNG competes against Hyundai Aura CNG and the recently launched Tata Tigor CNG in its segment and it is the most fuel-efficient with a claimed mileage of more than 31 km/kg.
The Tata Tigor broke the stereotype in the month of February 2022 as it rose to the second position by beating Honda Amaze. It is the only compact sedan in the country sold with petrol, CNG and electric variants. It recorded a cumulative domestic total of 4,091 units as against 1,939 units during the same period last year with a massive growth of 111 per cent on a YoY basis.
