India - best-selling cars by unit sales 2019

In 2019, the best-selling cars in India were Maruti Suzuki's Alto, Dzire, and Swift. Maruti Suzuki sold approximately 208,000 Alto cars in that time span, as well as almost 200,000 Dzire subcompact sedans, and some 192,000 Swift cars. In 2019, Maruti Suzuki reported domestic sales of 1.75 million units in India.

Maruti Suzuki takes the crown

Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai dominate the Indian passenger car market. Maruti Suzuki's kei cars notched up the highest number of sales. The WagonR, including its next-generation version, had a sales tally of almost 156,00 units in 2019, up from some 152,000 in 2019. During the 2018/2019 fiscal year, however, passenger cars only made up a small proportion of motor vehicles sold in India, while two-wheeled vehicles, such as scooters or motorcycles, accounted for the largest number of units sold. Among passenger vehicles, Maruti Suzuki, followed by Hyundai, had the largest share of the market in 2018.
