Top 10 selling car makers in June 2017 saw Toyota falling down to last position while Honda and Tata made good progress
As ever, Maruti Suzuki heads the best-selling chart for the month of June 2017 ahead of the usual second-place finisher Hyundai with 93,057 units. There is a huge gap between them as 55,495 units separated the top two positions. Hyundai’s regular top-sellers are Grand i10, Elite i20 and Creta while Maruti Suzuki has bettered its closest rival in all segments especially with Vitara Brezza and Baleno getting superlative responses.
Many manufacturers and dealers used last month to avail discounts citing GST and it worked well to a certain extent. Coming in at third was the largest SUV manufacturer in the country Mahindra with 15,388 units sold. Just behind with 12,804 total sales, Honda has indeed made progress in recent months following the launch of the WR-V compact SUV.
|Top 10 Selling Car Makers in June 2017|
|Car Manufacturers||Number of Sold Units|
|1. Maruti Suzuki||93,057|

The WR-V along with the facelifted City are holding the flags up high for the Japanese automaker. Tata Motors is another revitalised brand since the introduction of the Tiago hatchback. The homegrown company wasted no time and backed up the strong sales response with the AMT version of the hatchback and of course the Tigor.
A few weeks ago, Renault made available different colour options for its bestselling Kwid hatchback and it was preceded by the special edition Climber derivative. It finished the sales chart in sixth position with 6,840 units and there is a new product coming our way called the Captur SUV that could help in improving the falling sales figures of the Frenchies.
Ford managed 6,149 units in June 2017 to come home seventh ahead of Nissan which recently launched the updated Micra. The latter will be hoping for bigger things in terms of sales when the Kicks SUV enters the market sometime next year. Volkswagen’s Ameo subcompact sedan is aiding its cause as it completed ninth ahead of Toyota that endured 85 percent decline in YoY sales. Despite the Chevrolet brand quitting India at the end of this year, 672 units were delivered to the customers.
