Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!
Dethrones the Hyundai Elite i20 in its segment.
The Maruti Baleno has cracked the list of top 10 best sellers in the month of November. The newly-launched premium hatchback has taken up the sixth position with a total of 9,074 units sold.
It has also successfully managed to dislodge the Hyundai Elite i20 from the top spot of the premium hatchback segment for the first time; the Elite i20 could only manage a total of 8,264 units in the same month. It seems that Maruti’s aggressive pricing and feature-rich strategy has struck a chord with customers.
It’s smaller brother, the Maruti Swift has slipped to fifth position from third place that it occupied in the previous month. In November, the Swift recorded 11,859 units which is a significant decline of 5,810 units from what it managed a month earlier.
The list was topped again by India’s best-selling car, the Maruti Alto which made a comeback this month with 21,995 units after slipping to second place in October. The Dzire settled into second place with 18,826 cars taken out of showrooms after occupying the top slot in October. 13,986 units were enough to give the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R third place.
Note that all the cars in the list have experienced a decrease in sales volume this month, save for the Hyundai Eon and Maruti Suzuki Celerio that have posted a gain of 675 units and 292 units, respectively.
