Maruti Suzuki Dzire, in its new generation, has been the top-selling model in this category. Launched in its new avatar back in 2017, which later received a minor facelift two years ago, remains a hot favourite in the sub-compact sedan segment. Maruti sold 14,976 units of Dzire, almost 4,000 units more than it sold in December last year. The Dzire sub-compact sedan had a sales figure of 15,125 units back in January last year, which shows that the model has been quite consistent in its sales on year-on-year basis.
