  • The second and third spot occupied by the newly-launched Alto and the Dzire have been facing a decline in sales over the months. In May as well, sales of the new Alto declined by 25 percent while the Dzire witnessed a decline of a higher 34 percent.
  • The new Maruti Wagon R occupying the fifth place below the Baleno, has also recorded a decline of 9 percent while registering 14,561 units of sales.
  • The discontinuation of the Maruti Omni from the Indian market, has helped the Eeco to improve sales. The Eeco is the only van offering from the brand and has managed to record sales of 11,739 units, shooting it up to sixth place in the list.
  • The Hyundai Creta continues its dominance in the SUV market. Taking over the seventh position in the list. It is followed by the Elite i20 premium hatchback, both recording sales of 9,054 and 8,958 units, respectively.
  • The bottom two slots have been occupied by the Ertiga MPV in 9th position while the popular Vitara Brezza comes in at 10th. The Maruti Vitara Brezza has been in the Indian market for a while now, the design of the SUV seems to be ageing. The Ertiga MPV has overtaken the Vitara Brezza due to its new design language and the addition of all the latest features.
