In the hatchback and compact sedan segment, Maruti Suzuki sold 76,692 cars last month, significantly down from 105,151 units registered in the same month a year ago. During the first four months of this fiscal, the automaker sold 327,917 cars in the same segment, down from 359,015 units recorded in the same period a year ago.

In July this year, Alto and S-Presso together sold 9,590 units, which is more than 50 per cent down from 20,333 units recorded in the same month a year ago. Baleno, Celerio, Dzire, Ignis, Swift, and WagonR combined sold 67,102 cars in July 2023, down from 84,818 units registered in the same month a year ago. This clearly shows how the hatchbacks that used to be the propelling machines for the automaker's sales numbers have been facing a decline in retail numbers, while the increased demand and Maruti Suzuki's emphasise on SUVs have paid off.
