Coming in at second ahead of Swift was the Baleno with 19,398 unit sales in May 2018 and is registering consistent high numbers every passing month. The ever-increasing popularity of Baleno goes on to showcase the buyers’ attraction towards premium vehicles as well. Glancing over the entire chart, it is easy to get carried away by the ever-existing presence of Maruti and Hyundai hatchbacks but the potential for growth can be observed courtesy of the Tiago and Kwid.

If correctly positioned with good features and efficient powertrains, the recipe for success can always be visualized. For example, Tata and Renault have their top-selling vehicles in the entire market at the affordable hatchback space. The Tiago graced India with a whole new design philosophy alongside good equipment level.

The Tata Tiago outsold Kwid and Eon for eight position with a total of 7,060 deliveries. The Maruti Suzuki Celerio, which brought the affordable AMT to the masses, ended up seventh with 10,160 retailed units. Despite Kwid finishing ninth with 5,196 unit sales, its popularity has certainly been dwindling compared to the recent past.
