In July 2023, Maruti Suzuki Dzire was the most sold sedan in India as it finished ahead of Hyundai Aura and Honda Amaze

In the month of July 2023, Maruti Suzuki’s Dzire finished on top of the sedan sales charts as 13,395 units were sold against 13,747 units during the same period last year with a YoY negative sales growth of 3 per cent. The Hyundai Aura finished in the second position with a domestic tally of 4,514 units as against 4,018 units.

This led to a YoY positive sales growth of 12 per cent. The Honda Amaze came in at third with a domestic total of 3,386 units last month as against 2,767 units during the same period last year with a YoY volume increase of 22 per cent. Both Dzire and Amaze will gain big updates next year as the former will be powered by a strong hybrid petrol engine.

The 2024 Maruti Suzuki Dzire’s design will be heavily influenced by the upcoming all-new Swift compact hatchback. The third-generation Honda Amaze, on the other hand, will take plenty of inspiration from the global crop of sedans sold by the Japanese brand including the Accord. Thus, the competition in the segment will only intensify.
