Maruti Suzuki on Monday reported a year-on-year sales growth of 4.3% in January and sold a total of 160,752 units of which, 142,604 units were sold in the domestic market. The company reported a minor dip in sales of its mini and compact vehicles last month in comparison to January of 2020 but the overall momentum was good enough to keep it in the green.

Much of this momentum came from good performance from products in the UV sub-segment which also includes Ertiga, S-Cross, XL6 and Vitara Brezza. As many as 23,887 units from this sub-segment were sold last month vis-a-vis 16,460 units a year earlier - a growth of 45.1%. It is important to note here, however, that the S-Cross and Vitara Brezza had received updates in the months after January of 2020.
