10 Best Selling Cars in India

Bestsellingcars (2)

Industry analysts are always compiling Top 10 lists to analyze sales volume, profitability, earnings potential etc etc but for consumers, the Top 10 serves as an indication of quality, durability and resale value. For this purpose, we have put together a list of Best Selling Cars in India based on showroom sales.

Maruti Suzuki is the undisputed leader of the passenger vehicle segment in India with 5-6 models always featuring in the Top 10 best sellers year after year. The top 10 features the hatchbacks Alto, at number 1 position, Swift, Wagon R and Celerio. Also in the top 10 are the compact sedan Swift DZire and the Baleno. Given the road conditions and traffic congestion levels of Indian cities, is it any wonder that the easy to drive hatchbacks dominate the sales? Also notable is the growing popularity of the automatic gear option in this segment. See our blog post on how to choose between manual and automatic gears.

Cost efficient, fuel efficient, hassle-free – three qualities that is always appreciated by Indians while choosing their cars. Maruti Alto has all of these and has remained at the number 1 slot in terms of sales for a quite a few years. Recent entrants in the hatchback segment like the Renault Kwid and other Maruti models have made some dents in its sales but Alto retains its leadership position for now.

The Wagon R was always very popular for its easy manoeuvrability but with recent cosmetic design changes its appearance has also improved, making its position in the top 10 secure.

Spacious and compact, the Maruti Swift DZire has been the leader in the category since its launch in 2008. The combined sales of the petrol and diesel, manual and automatic versions outsell all other compact sedans.

Another hatchback from the Maruti family, the Celerio is comparable to the Alto K10  but comes with a slightly higher price tag for its additional safety features and spaciousness. The Celerio has been cannibalising into Alto sales but the price tag might keep it vying for the top spot for a while.

Boldly proclaimed, by some, as an entry level hatchback with the feel of an SUV, the Renault Kwid is the new k(w)id on the block which is giving segment leader Alto a run for its money. It is actually priced slightly lesser than the Alto K10 and has been getting rave reviews from users. Whether this car will dethrone the Alto’s crown will be answered in time.

The Grand i10 takes on the Maruti Swift in the budget diesel hatchback segment and has managed to hold its position in the top 10 owing to its good looks and reliable performance. Ford Figo is the closest rival but it hasn’t made a huge impact on the i10 sales so far.

Hyundai’s answer to Maruti’s Swift, the Elite i20 is a strong contender in the premium hatchback segment. The Elite i20 is preferred for its great looks and styling but it is pricier than the Swift.

The sales figures of compact sedans keep varying month on month but we chose to feature the Honda City as it has been a long standing favourite in the Indian market since the 90s. Now available in petrol and diesel variants, the Honda City pricing starts at Rs 8 lakhs onwards. The Maruti Ciaz is vying to take the City’s spot by being priced lower.
