Maruti Suzuki Dzire country's best selling car in April-Nov

  • The company said the model currently has around 60% market share in the compact sedan segment
  • However, Dzire's numbers fall short when compared with year-ago period, illustrating the prolonged slump the entire auto industry has been grappling with this year

New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Tuesday said its compact sedan Dzire has become the best selling car in the country in the first eight months of the current fiscal with sales of over 1.2 lakh units.

The company said the model currently has around 60 per cent market share in the compact sedan segment.

"Over years, Dzire has created a niche for itself amongst compact sedans. Gaining widespread acceptance, the model was conceptualised keeping in mind the customer demands," MSI Executive Director (Marketing & Sales) Shashank Srivastava said in a statement.

The third generation version of the model was launched in May 2017.

However, Dzire's numbers fall short when compared with year-ago period, illustrating the prolonged slump the entire auto industry has been grappling with this year.

The Maruti Suzuki Dzire compact sedan was India’s best-selling car since the start of 2018-19 fiscal year, overtaking the carmaker’s small car Alto, data released by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (Siam) showed. During April-November 2018, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd sold 182,139 Dzire cars as compared with 153,303 units in the year-ago period, according to Siam.
