9. Maruti Suzuki Baleno
Maruti has performed really well in the premium hatchback segment and the new Baleno has moved to the top 10 list of the most exported cars from India.
The manufacturer has sold 2,215 units for the global market and the number should go up steadily soon. In the domestic market too, the Baleno has outperformed in rivals and sales are on the upward trend.
The Maruti Baleno has good features and spec with attractive prices, which keeps the sales ticking.
8. Chevrolet Beat
The Beat from Chevrolet has been a consistent performer for the American car manufacturer. It has broken into the top 10 cars exported from India in June 2016.
Chevrolet exported 2,834 units as of June 2016 and is better than Maruti Suzuki who do not any other models on the list except for the Baleno and Alto.

1. Nissan Micra
The same time last year in June 2015, the Nissan Micra was not even on the list, this June 2016 it is the top exported car from India.
Nissan exported 6,807 units in June 2016 beating every other car manufactured in India. The Nissan Micra comes with loads of features, from the simple keyless entry to the rear camera for parking or even the option of four airbags.
