The automobile industry is going through its worst times and the sales figures have gone down tremendously. Amidst of all this there are still some manufacturers who are doing well in terms of numbers. It is none other than the very Indian Maruti Suzuki. sales figures for the month of August 2019 are out and guess what? Maruti Suzuki Dzire has regained the top position in the sales chart.

In fact, cars in top 5 ranks are all occupied by cars from Maruti Suzuki’s stable. Rank one is taken by Maruti Suzuki Dzire, followed by Maruti Suzuki Swift, WagonR, Baleno and Alto. This shows how popular Maruti Suzuki as a brand is among Indians. coming to the figures Maruti Sold 13,274 units of Dzire in August. This is too low when compared to the earlier figures. Earlier, the top ranked car would be selling above 18,000 units easily every month now the same has been limited to 13,274.

Second Rank holder is the Swift. Maruti Suzuki has sold 12,444 units of Swift hatchback in India. It comes with both petrol and diesel engine options and competes with the likes of Ford Figo, Hyundai Grand i10 in the segment.

Coming in at third position is probably one of India’s most loved family car ‘WagonR’. Maruti Suzuki sold 11,402 units of WagonR across the country in August 2019. It comes two engine options, petrol and CNG variants and get both manual and AMT gearboxes.

Fourth position is occupied by Maruti Suzuki’s premium hatchback Baleno. 11,067 units Baleno’s were sold across the country and fifth position is taken by Alto. Maruti Sold 10,123 units of Alto last month. It had slipped down from 4th to 5th rank.

Alto sales have been down for some time because of the economic slowdown as well as the poor demand from the rural market. As a result of low demand and this economic crisis, Maruti had put a halt on production at their plants to clear out their old inventories.

8 Vehicles out of the top 10 vehicles in the sales chart are from Maruti Suzuki. Other Brand that made it to the chart is Hyundai with Grand i10 at 6th and Hyundai Venue at 7th rank.  Hyundai sold 9,403 units of Grand i10 which includes newly launched Nios figures also and 9,342 units of Venue compact SUV in the month of August.

Another fact that one cannot ignore is that once again Hyundai Venue outsold Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza by 2,233 units. Maruti only sold 7,109 units of Brezza and is currently at the bottom of the sales chart. Things might change in future when Maruti introduces Petrol and CNG variants in Brezza.
