Maruti Suzuki cars have always claimed top position in overall sales, with its top names like Alto, Dzire and WagonR and Swift frequently finding a mention. Though Maruti Suzuki still continues to be among the top three, this time around Maruti’s premium hatchback, the Baleno has replaced the Dzire sedan at the second position. As compared to 6,236 units which were sold in March 2016, the automaker sold 16,426 units of Baleno in March 2017, thereby registering a massive growth of 163.40 per cent.  

Reports indicate that the spike in sales can be attributed to reducing waiting period on the premium hatchback. The recent inauguration of the Gujarat facility has helped the Indian automaker overcome production constraints and expedite production of over 80,000 pending orders with a waiting period that spanned over 21-22 weeks. Moreover, the recently introduced performance focused Baleno RS version has also attracted potential buyers who have been eagerly waiting for the vehicle for a while.

In comparison to March 2016, the WagonR has now dropped to the sixth position from the third position in terms of overall sales. The automaker witnessed a 20.42 per cent drop with 12,105 units of the WagonR sold in March 2017 as against 14,577 units sold in the same month last year. This time around we also have the Hyundai Grand i10 which has progressed one step ahead to claim the fifth position with 12,545 units sold in March against a figure of 9,544 in the same month last year.
