Maruti Dzire was the highest-selling sedan in India last month by far, with Tata Tigor and Hyundai Aura taking the second and third spots, respectively
In the Indian car market, sedans have been losing popularity to SUVs in recent times. However, there are plenty of people who still find them to have novelty value, and many sedans posted a strong sales growth last month. Here, we have listed the ten highest-selling sedans in India in March 2022.
Maruti Dzire was the best-selling sedan in the Indian market last month, with a sales figure of 18,623 units. This translates to a YoY sales growth of 63 per cent in March 2022 for Maruti‘s subcompact sedan. Tata Tigor took a distant second spot, with 4,007 units sold last month, which is a 91 per cent growth on a YoY basis.
At the third spot, we have Hyundai Aura, which saw a 6 per cent drop in sales on a YoY basis in March 2022, with 3,775 units sold. Next in line is Honda City, of which a total of 3,225 units were sold last month, which is a massive 296 per cent YoY sales growth.

Skoda Slavia stands on the sixth spot on the sales chart, with 2,665 units sold in March 2022. As it was launched only a little while ago, there is no YoY sales comparison to make here.
