From the brand-wise sales report of September 2018, it was pretty evident that Hyundai India has done significantly well even though they still have to go a long way to catch up with Maruti.

The Maruti Celerio started the AMT trend in the Indian automotive market and is still one of the best affordable automatics on sale. The Celerio comes only in a petrol format and is also available in the funkier CelerioX avatar.

Verdict

Maruti Suzuki has once again proved their market presence in our country but Hyundai seems to be the next big thing. It is quite interesting to see that only two brands have managed to come up in the top 10 positions on the list of best-selling cars in India. Reasons for this could be the recent Kerala floods and the rising fuel prices. What do you think?
