This is the first time in a long time that the top ten sales chart has produced a different result. Tata is not at the top of the charts and Maruti Suzuki continues to hold the top spot, with a whopping 7 vehicles in the top ten.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR regularly topped the sales chart, with Baleno trailing behind. But the Baleno is now India’s best-selling car, with 18,418 sold in August 2022.
Maruti WagonR sales are down, which can be attributed to the recently launched Alto K10. WagonR sold 18,398 units in August 2022, representing a 91.90% year-over-year increase.
New Maruti Suzuki Brezza occupies the third and most interesting position. It is currently the best-selling SUV, easily surpassing Creta and Nexon, which is surprising considering that Brezza was in 12th place last month.

Tata Nexon has been consistently ranked fourth for a long time and is one of India’s best-selling SUVs. It had its highest monthly sales ever last month, but it wasn’t enough to keep the title of best SUV.
Maruti Suzuki Alto was in 14th place last month and has moved up to 5th in just a month. This is most likely the magic of Alto K10 as it is a crowd pleaser, selling 14,388 units, up 8.70% year over year and 58.72% month over month.
While SUVs like the Brezza have sold the Nexon, the Creta has yet to do so. The Tata Punch, which has a 5-star crash safety rating, registered sales of 12,006 units in August 2022.
Maruti Eeco is currently India’s only ladder frame van with sliding doors. It sells well in the absence of competitors. While it was the sixth last month, but it was the eighth in August 2022.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire is now in ninth place, down from fifth place last month with just 11,868 units sold in August 2022. Swift’s story is even more tragic as it was third last month and dropped to tenth in August with 11,275 units on the sales chart.
