The list of top 10 selling cars in March 2018 saw Maruti Suzuki’s usual domination by occupying the top five positions

Maruti Suzuki’s good monthly sales run continued in March 2018 as six out of ten cars in the chart belonged to the Indo-Japanese manufacturer while sealing top five positions. The Alto entry-level hatchback has managed to steady its ship in recent months after losing the top crown to Dzire several times since the sedan’s latest version entered the market.

While a total of 23,303 units registered for Alto, Maruti managed to sell 22,195 Dzire subcompact sedans for second position. The latest Dzire with a heavily updated exterior, trusted engine lineup and improved equipment list has certainly been well received. The Wagon R is another stalwart that sets the cash registers ringing for several years for Maruti and was positioned fifth in the third month of the year with 14,208 units.
