Maruti Suzuki launched the new generation Brezza (top) earlier this year. It gets both a completely new exterior and an interior. Brezza also comes with new features. It has ended Tata Nexon’s (below) long line as a bestseller in the SUV segment.

Maruti Suzuki finally launched the new generation of the Brezza this year. The update was important as the Hyundai Venue first ate Brezza’s share and then Tata Nexon took pole position. However, after the launch of the new generation, the crown is back with the Brezza. The Brezza is still ahead of the Nexon in September sales. Despite a facelift, Hyundai Venue is the third best-selling compact SUV in 10th place.

These are the top 10 cars sold in September:

Maruti Suzuki Alto

Maruti Suzuki sold 24,844 Alto units in September 2022. That’s an increase of 105 percent from sales of 12,143 units in September 2021. The Alto is still a very popular hatchback because of its reliability and affordability. Maruti Suzuki is working on a new-generation Alto that is expected to hit the market sometime this year.

Maruti Suzuki WagonR

Maruti Suzuki WagonR is still a practical hatchback that has compact dimensions and is quite easy to drive. The manufacturer sold 20,078 units in the month of September 2022. In the same period last year, sales were 7,632 units. That is an increase of 163 percent.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Baleno’s sales declined slowly, but with the new generation, sales are looking good. It is currently the third best-selling vehicle in the Indian market. Last year in September the sales figures were 8,077 units. This year the numbers have risen to 19,369 units, a 140 percent increase.

Maruti Suzuki Brezza

The Brezza is currently the best-selling compact SUV in the Indian market. Maruti Suzuki sold 15,445 Brezza units in September 2022. Last year they managed to sell just 1,874 Brezza units. So we can say that the new generation is getting a good response from the Indian market.

Tata Nexon

The Nexon remains the best-selling vehicle for Tata Motors. It is available in many variants, two engine options, with a manual transmission and an AMT, a good list of features and a lot of safety equipment. Tata Motors sold 14,518 Nexon units in September 2022.

Hyundai Crete

The Creta is the best-selling mid-sized SUV in the Indian market. It is well priced, has many features, offers multiple variants and different combinations of engine and gearbox. Hyundai sold 12,866 Creta units in September this year. By comparison, sales figures were 8,193 units. So there is an increase of 57 percent.

Maruti Suzuki Eco

The Eeco performed consistently in terms of sales for Maruti Suzuki. They sold 12,697 units, which is quite impressive for a vehicle that is essentially a van.

Tata Punch

The Punch is the latest hit from the homegrown manufacturer. It has affected the market share of compact sedans, hatchbacks and even some premium hatchbacks. Punch is currently the second best-selling vehicle for Tata Motors. Tata sold 12,251 Punch pieces in September 2022.

Maruti Suzuki Swift

Despite being on the market for so many years, the Swift remains one of the most popular hatchbacks in India. Maruti Suzuki sold 11,988 Swifts in September this year.

Hyundai Location

Completing the top 10 list is Hyundai’s compact SUV. Location is a success for the manufacturer. When it first launched, it even manages to dethrone the Maruti Suzuki Brezza. But now things are different. Fortunately, the Venue managed to find its way into the top 10 best-selling cars in India. Hyundai sold 11,033 units of Venue in September 2022.
