Honda's most loved vehicle, the City has been a favourite of many sedan buyers. This has caused a decline in sales of its Amaze vehicle but the Japanese manufacturer is not bothered by it. In the month of May, 2014 Honda sold over 13,362 vehicles compared to 11,342 vehicles that it sold in May, 2013. They have achieved a growth of 18% and are believed to grow further with its soon-to-launch Mobilio MPV.

Mahindra, the largest Utility Vehicle manufacturer in India, is witnessing a dip in sales of its passenger vehicles. The Indian manufacturer has reported a decline in growth, though we have included them as they are the third highest sellers for the month. In May, 2014 Mahindra sold 18,085 vehicles, while in May, 2013 they sold 22,244 vehicles - a decline of 19%. Mahindra is planning to introduce a sub-four-metre SUV in India, however it will be a long while before the vehicle is launched.

The launch of Hyundai's new compact sedan, the Xcent has turned around the fortunes of the South Korean manufacturer. In the month of May, 2014 Hyundai accomplished sales of 36,205 vehicles. In the previous year in the month of May, the manufacturer sold 32,102 vehicles. Thus, this year saw an increase of 12.8% in total sales. Their sales might only grow further with the launch of its facelifted i20, which is slated for the festive season this year.

Number 1: Maruti Suzuki

There seems to be no other manufacturer that can steal the spotlight away from Maruti Suzuki. Sales have been boosted significantly owing to the popularity of the Celerio. The Japanese manufacturer is also expected to launch the Alivio sedan as well as the S-Cross within this year. Majority of the sales have come from the Celerio, Ritz and Swift hatchback. Maruti Suzuki sold 90,560 vehicles in May, 2014, while in May, 2013 they managed to sell 77,821 vehicles, seeing an increase of 16.4%. We expect the Japanese manufacturer to only grow further in the coming months.
