As compared to a robust October sales, November witnessed a drop in sales, although the passenger vehicle segment still recorded an annual growth of 9 percent. Maruti Suzuki witnessed a sale decline of 2 percent year-on-year and 17 percent month-on-month, though cars continued to dominate the list of best-selling cars in India.
Here is the best selling cars of November 2020:
Maruti Swift has retained its position as the best-selling car in India, with sales of 18,498 units in the month of November 2020 despite a significant decline from the previous month. Currently in its third generation, the Maruti Swift is available with four trim levels – LXi, VXi, ZXi and ZXi + and the company has tried and tested with the 1.2-liter K12 petrol engine.
With 17,872 people in the month of November 2020, Maruti Baleno continued to occupy the second position in the list of best sellers, closing the gap on the Swift. A competitor to the new Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, Tata Altroz and Toyota Glanza – it is supplied by Maruti to Toyota – the Baleno is a spacious cabin, a set of peppy and frugal engines and the only car in Maruti’s line-up with CVT gearbox.
Maruti Wagon R
The Maruti Wagon R also held on to its position on the sale of 16,256 units number three recordings, edging the Alto by just 3535 units. Maruti’s latest generation long-boy hatchback is earning a reputation in the market as a sensible, spacious, efficient and reasonably priced city car. Petrol engine – Available with 1.0-liter K10 petrol and 1.2-liter K12 petrol options, and a factory formerly fitted CNG option, the third-gen Wagon R goes against the Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago.
For a second month, Maruti Alto found itself at the fourth position in the sales chart. The Maruti entry-level hatchback has long been one of the carmaker’s best-selling products and recently completed two decades in the Indian market.
The strength of the long-serving hatchback lies in the peace of mind ownership experience and affordable price tag, although there is more to offer than new rivals.
The only sedan to feature in the list, the Maruti Dzire has long become the go-to model in the compact sedan segment, competing with the likes of Honda Amaze and Hyundai Aura. Dzire received a mid-cycle update earlier this year before the COVID-19 related lockdown. The update brought it with minor changes in style, an updated equipment list and a more powerful 90hp 1.2-liter dual jet petrol engine – although there is no mild-hybrid technology here.
