The list of top 10 selling cars in May 2018 saw Maruti Suzuki dominating again by featuring seven out of ten models
Maruti Suzuki has continued its auspicious sales run in May 2018 as well by securing YoY sales growth of 24 percent with 54.3 percent market share. Seven out of ten cars in the chart wore Suzuki badge and of them six models covered first six positions. The Alto entry-level hatchback did not manage to steady its ship and lost the top crown to Dzire as the latter registered 24,365 units.
While a total of 21,890 units recorded for Alto last month, it was at a deficit of 2,475 units to the subcompact sedan. The latest Dzire with a heavily updated exterior, trusted engine lineup and improved equipment list has certainly been a huge hit. The Wagon R is another mainstay that sets the cash registers ringing for Maruti Suzuki and was positioned fifth in the fifth month of the year with 15,974 units.

The positive sales trend of SUVs was approved by Hyundai Creta as well as the sixth place finisher Maruti Vitara Brezza that leads the segment as a whole.
