Maruti Suzuki on Monday reported an 8.3% increase in month-on-month sales in February for passenger vehicles. While the likes of Alto and S-Presso underperformed last month in comparison to February of 2020, the performance of utility vehicles was heartening for the company.

Maruti sold a total of 144,761 passenger vehicles in the domestic market last month, up from 133,702 in February of 2020. Powering the company was the performance of utility vehicles like Ertiga, XL6, S-Cross and Vitara Brezza. It is important to note here that the updated S-Cross and Brezza were launched post February of last year.

The mini sub-segment which features Alto and S-Presso, however, continue to be a point of concern. Maruti sold 23,959 units of these cars last month, down from 27,499 in February of 2020.
