Positive growth despite the presence of premium hatchbacks and compact SUVs is commendable

When it comes to the October 2020 sedan sales, Maruti Suzuki Dzire leads the compact sedan segment.

It managed to garner 17,675 unit sales which was 10 percent lower than sales during the year ago period.

Next comes the Hyundai Aura and Xcent duo (5577 units) followed by the Amaze, 4709 units of which was retailed by Honda.

Tata Tigor (1501 units) and Ford Aspire with 446 unit sales, complete the segment which saw its overall sales increase by seven percent year-over-year (YoY).

There is no beating the City if the trend continues like this

Honda City rules the C-segment sedan sales with 4124 units with a very strong 119 percent YoY growth.

In second spot sits the Hyundai Verna with 2166 units and next is the Maruti Ciaz which recorded sales of 1422 units.

Skoda sold 1024 units of the Rapid, with appealing pricing (two lower variants) and the addition of an automatic gearbox helping the sedan well.

However, It was a poor outing for the Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Vento and the two firms will have to ramp up their efforts to see sales pick up well.
