The Swift came in at first, since the Japanese carmaker managed to sell 22,643 units of the hatchback in the said month.

The fourth spot was also taken up by a hatchback – the Wagon R, 17,581 units of which were sold in the country last month.
Maruti Suzuki’s sub-4m sedan Dzire secured the fifth position, with a total of 13,988 units sold last month, which means that it was the best-selling sedan for the said month.
