Maruti’s market share unaffected by Figo, Polo, Beat


Naveen Nallappan,

Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That’s my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!

With new entrants in the small car segment like the Ford Figo, Chevrolet Beat and the Volkswagen Polo, the market share of Maruti Suzuki was at stake. But Maruti proved that it is the King of the small car segment by having its market share intact even after a number of competitive new players.

Yesterday, we had discussed about Ford Figo’s impressive sales in a 14 week period. Though the Ford Figo is a huge success it hasn’t affected Maruti’s market share.

Mayank Pareek, Executive Officer (Marketing & Sales), Maruti Suzuki India –

We have always been able to provide the lowest cost of ownership in cars and now, even in the styling aspect we have matched competitors

Reports say that the new entrants in the segment are eating into the sales of Hyundai and Tata Motors.

Even though Maruti is offering low-cost cars and is mostly preferred brand for first time buyers, I feel that Maruti should offer ‘affordable quality motoring’ than just ‘affordable motoring’ to the typical Indian car buyer.
