Maruti Suzuki, the South Asian nation’s top automaker, reported a jump in sales of its minicars and sport utility vehicles last month that helped offset a decline in demand for its most popular models.

Total deliveries, including exports, dropped 1.1% in July to 108,064 units, the company said on Saturday. Sales fell 54% in June. Deliveries of its minicars including Alto climbed 49% to 17,258 units, while sales of SUVs rose 26% to 19,177.
