The Amaze and Tigor at least managed to post good YoY growth figures

Sedan sales in January 2021 did not get any better, as Indian consumers are shifting completely over to the more practical and high-riding world of SUVs.

Maruti Suzuki’s Dzire led the compact sedan sales by a very high margin, as it recorded 15,125 unit sales, while the Honda Amaze, which came second, managed 5477 unit sales.

The Aura from Hyundai added 4183 more units to its tally in the month of January, while the Tigor from Tata found just over 2000 takers.

It was the Ford Aspire, with 293 units, that came last in the segment that saw its overall sales tank by 19 percent year-over-year (YoY) as the cars in the list could only manage a total of 27,103 units.

Overall, 8403 units were sold with a 58 percent YoY growth

While the Amaze might have been the best-selling Honda last month, it was the City that continued to lead its segment by a decent margin.

Crossing over 3600 unit sales, the City registered a 111 percent YoY growth figure, similar to second-placed Verna that managed to post a 109 percent YoY growth, with the South Korean firm having retailed 2000 units of the model.

In third place sits the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, which did post sales growth of 61 percent, but could only manage to find 1347 takers.

Cars in the last 3 places of the January 2021 sedan sales (C-segment) did not fare well though, for all of them recorded degrowth. The Skoda Rapid (757 units) for instance lost 7 percent of its sales.

Similarly, the Toyota Yaris’ sales degrew by 43 percent and the Volkswagen Vento’s YoY figure stood at -12 percent, for the German firm could only retail 220 units of the car.

Soon, the D-segment might vanish altogether

The overall D-segment sales figure in January 2021 is only 40 units, 32 of which were brought in by the Hyundai Elantra and while the Skoda Octavia managed 8 unit sales. No Honda Civic units were sold this past month.

Some are finding the Superb a very attractive proposition

Thankfully, the premium sedan segment did better, for the Skoda Superb posted 76 percent YoY growth, having found 239 takers. The Camry trails the Superb again, for Toyota only managed to sell 45 units of the car last month.

Both City and Verna did well last time around
