Ranked sixth on the top-10 list is the Maruti Vitara Brezza compact-SUV. The Vitara Brezza which lost out on sales to the Hyundai Venue for the last couple of months is back on top.
The Vitara Brezza registered a significant month-on-month growth in the Indian market registering 10,362 units of sales. This has allowed the SUV to move up from 10th position in August to sixth last month.
Below, the Vitara Brezza is the Hyundai Elite i20. The premium hatchback missed out on the top-10 list last month, after a heavy decline in sales.
However, the car is back on the list after registering 10,141 units of sales in the month of September 2019. The Elite i20 has been one of the best-selling models for the Korean brand in the Indian market.
Eighth on the list is the Maruti Eeco MPV. The Maruti Eeco is one of the most popular budget people movers on offer from the brand in the Indian market. The company registered 9.949 units of sale in the previous month, placing it below the Elite i20 on the list.
The bottom two cars on the list are from Hyundai. This includes the recently launched Grand i10 NIOS and the Venue compact-SUV. The Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS registered 9,358 units of sales last month, while the Venue sold 7,942 units.
What is surprising, however, is the absence of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga on the list of top-10 cars. The MPV has been one of the best-selling models in the segment and was consistently featured on the best-selling car list.
