The hatchback segment has taken a huge hit last month with the sales dropping about 70% compared to the month before, however, if compared to the sales made at the same time last year, these sales would portray a profitable image. If looking at the sales of the premium hatchback cars, the number here also doesn’t look much appealing as the segment encountered a sales drop of more than 50%, and the biggest let down for this month was the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, be it in Maruti form or the Toyota form.
