We take a look at the top 10 selling cars of this year. Maruti is killing it with many of its products featuring in this list.
The Maruti Alto is preferred by anyone who’s buying his first ever car in India. There are many other buyers too who keep an Alto as a second car. The car is known to be reliable and hassle-free and that makes it the highest selling car in the country. The Alto manages sales of 2.49 lakh units in 2015.
Want to play it safe by getting a Maruti but don’t want an Alto? Then the Swift DZire is for you. The leader of the compact sedan segment offers good performance, mileage and features and is of course backed by Maruti’s splendid after-sales service. The DZire touched sales of 2.19 lakh units in 2015.
Closely following the DZire, is its hatchback version, the Swift. Essentially the same car, the Swift is preferred by those who want a fun to drive car but don’t want a big boot, thus giving a miss to the DZire. The Swift sold 1.92 lakh units in 2015.
So here we have another Maruti which is also leading the regular hatchback segment in India. The Wagon R offers good space, hassle-free ownership and excellent mileage (the CNG version sells very well), making it a good buy for the regular Indian buyer. The Wagon R managed sales of 1.55 lakh units in 2015.
Now we have Hyundai which has a brilliant performer on their hands with the Elite i20. The vehicle is leading the premium hatchback segment in India and it continues to remain an excellent buy for someone who wants a large and comfortable hatchback which is loaded with a lot of features. The Elite i20 clocked in sales of 1.19 lakh units in 2015.
Following the i20 is its younger sibling, the Grand i10 which is a very good alternative to the Maruti Swift. The Grand i10 is known for its compact dimensions and easy to drive nature. It also offers peppy performance with excellent fuel economy. Hyundai sold 1.11 lakh units of the Grand i10 in 2015.
Mahindra launched the Bolero more than a decade ago and it is still selling in fantastic numbers which explains the credibility of the car. The SUV is used very extensively in rural areas and most of its sales come from tier-2 and tier-3 cities only. The automaker sold 80,914 units of the Bolero in 2015.
The Honda City is the leader of the C-segment in India and the sedan is known for its looks, engine, reliability and resale value. Honda had a winner on their hands right from the first generation City. The Japanese automaker clocked 76,546 units of the City in 2015.
The Maruti Celerio is known to be a fuel efficient car and it has been brining in good numbers right from launch. The fact that it comes with an AMT makes it a good buy in the regular hatchback segment. The Celerio bagged sales of 74,942 units in 2015.
Here we have another Maruti with us. The Omni has been present in the market for almost two decades now and even now it continues to fetch good numbers. While it isn’t preferred by private buyers now, the car still finds usage as an ambulance, school bus, cargo vehicle and so on. The Omni fetched 72,778 units in 2015.
