In India the majority of buyers prefer a car that has comfort features, adequate amount of power, great mileage and a price tag that fits the pocket.
Below is a list of brands that have contributed maximum to the Indian auto market recently.
The home-grown automaker Maruti entered the auto business in 1983 with the production of their first affordable car, Maruti 800, a 796 cc hatch back which was a rebadged version of the first generation Suzuki Alto. Maruti’s stables have been producing cars, non-stop, ever since. The 800 has successfully lived its several generations and the company reincarnated its model in Maruti Alto 800 India’s largest selling car.
Maruti has also strengthened its authority in the Indian car market with a few other models figuring in the top best-selling car brands in India, like their best selling compact sedan Dzire and its premium hatchback Swift. Even WagonR with its not so appealing design has been vastly revised by the company accumulating new buyers every month.
Mahindra Bolero has also been a best-selling brand. Ironically, the Bolero does not get many customers in the urban areas, but has been the first choice for buyers in the rural areas.
Hyundai has been the county’s second largest car maker with a total of 9 models on offering in the market. The company introduced its most affordable hatchback, the Eon, in 2011 and positioned the model against the Maruti Alto. Though, the marginal difference between the Alto and the Eon is huge, the model still managed to place itself in a very good position among the top selling cars in India.
Hyundai Motor’s Grand i10, which was launched in 2013 September, has also been one of the best selling brands. The entry mid-size hatchback Hyundai i10 has been one of the successful cars due to its appealing interior design, inspiring drivability and loads of features. The Korean automaker captured around 80,000 buyers for the i10 in its first year and now the positive response that company is getting for the Grand i10, makes the possibility of model to rank high this year too.
The feature loaded Hyundai i20 also managed to be among the top selling car brand for the last years. The spacious yet premium looking i20 has been the most selling 90 bhp diesel car in India. Hyundai has managed to maintain an average sale of 3000 units of i20 per month.
The most sought after MUV in India is the Toyota Innova. The Innova has managed to sell around 5000 units every month.These cars are loved by the Indian buyer for their appearance, comfort, fuel economy, pricing, and maintenance cost.
