Maruti Suzuki continues to dominate despite slight decline in sales in India in April. As many as seven Maruti cars feature in the list of top 10 vehicles sold in the country last month. Most notable among them is the revival of sales of the Maruti's three-row MPV Ertiga, which was launched in April. Among other, Tata Nexon registered highest growth among all 10 cars compared to the same month last year.

Here is a look at the top 10 cars sold in India in April

Maruti WagonR

At the top of the list, Maruti's boxy hatchback WagonR continued to hold fort. With 17,766 units sold last month, the sales of WagonR has gone down by five percent compared to April last year when it sold 18,656 units. However, the drop in sales is more worrying compared to what Maruti sold in March this year. WagonR found as many as 24,634 homes in the previous month which was more than 25 percent of April sales.
