At the number 1 position, we have the Maruti Suzuki Swift with a YoY de-growth of 8% and selling a total of 1,72,671 units for this financial year compared to last financial year sale of 1,87,916 units. Following the footsteps is its sibling Maruti Baleno which finished off this year with a YoY de-growth of 9% and selling an exact total of 1,63,445 units this year compared to 1,80,413 units last year. One this to be kept in mind here is that most of these sales are highly affected by the pandemic situation, which is the reason for most of these cars finishing off with negative YoY growth.
At the 3rd position, we have Maruti Suzuki Wagon R selling a total of 1,60,330 units and achieving a YoY growth of 2%. At the 4th position, we have Maruti Suzuki Alto which scored the second most negative sales growth percentage on this list (-17%) and sold a total of 1,58,992 units till March 2021. For the 5th position, we have the only Sedan on this list, although the age of sedans is long gone but Dzire never seems to disappoint, however, the car scored a YoY de-growth of 28%, which is the lowest on this list, but being on this in the age of hatchbacks and SUVs is a great deal.
