As ever, Maruti Suzuki has had another successful month as seven out of ten cars in the chart at the end of November belong to the Indo-Japanese manufacturer with the highlight being a clean sweep of the top six spots. As has been the case for several years, the Alto entry-level hatchback managed to stay consistent and retained the leading position from the new Dzire as a total of 24,166 units were registered for the hatchback.
The Dzire with a brand new exterior, reliable powertrains and improved features list is expected to remain in its second place for the coming months as well as Maruti delivered 22,492 units in November 2017. The Wagon R is another mainstay model that set the cash registers ringing for several years. With a new-gen model expected only in the near future, monthly sales figures like 14,038 units would keep the momentum swinging as it was positioned fifth behind the Baleno and Vitara Brezza.
