Top 10 selling cars in August 2019 — Maruti Suzuki Dzire beats Swift

The Indian automobile industry is reeling through the slump in sales from the past few months. The August 2019 sales were no different and almost all manufacturers posted negative growth. Coming to the top-selling cars in August 2019, there have been some major reshuffling in the list.

The Maruti Suzuki Alto has slipped to the fifth position and the Hyundai Grand i10 has made it back into the list. The Hyundai Elite i20 and Creta are no longer in the list. Below is the detailed list of top 10 selling cars in August 2019.

Top 10 selling cars in August 2019

10. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

Surprisingly, the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is languishing in the bottom of the list. The reason behind this is its latest rival, the Hyundai Venue. Maruti Suzuki sold 7,109 units of Vitara Brezza in August 2019 as compared to 13,271 units in August 2018. The compact SUV posted a negative growth of -46 percent. Maruti Suzuki is working on the petrol version of the Vitara Brezza which is expected to be launched by the end of 2019.

9. Maruti Suzuki Ertiga

When all the other models recording negative growth, the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga posted a massive growth of 139 percent. Maruti Suzuki sold 8,391 units of the MPV in August 2019 as opposed to 3,515 units in August 2018. The significant increase in sales is mainly because of the introduction of the new Ertiga.

8. Maruti Suzuki Eeco

The Maruti Omni replacement recorded sales figures of 8,658 units in August 2019 as compared to 6,546 units in the same month of 2018. The Eeco posted a growth of 32 percent, which is commendable for a van, which replaces the popular Omni.
