Maruti dominates the sales charts but Creta and Seltos hold their ground among the monthly best-sellers

The automotive industry has gradually continued to record growth in sales since the worst of the lockdown in April 2020. As a whole, the sector experienced a year-on-year growth of 20 per cent in August 2020. While not everyone enjoyed a similar annual rise in sales, most recorded an improvement over the previous month. Let’s see the highest selling models in August, irrespective of segment:



August 2020 Sales


Maruti Swift



Maruti Alto



Maruti Wagon R



Maruti Dzire



Hyundai Creta



Maruti Baleno



Kia Seltos



Hyundai Grand i10



Maruti Ertiga



Maruti Eeco


Key Takeaways

  • Maruti cars continue to populate most of the monthly best-seller lists. The most expensive Maruti car, the Ertiga, barely crosses the Rs 10 lakh mark (ex-showroom price) in its highest variant.

  • The Maruti Swift has climbed its way to the top of the table in August 2020 with nearly 14,900 units sold, barely 500 units ahead of second-best performer Maruti Alto.

  • The Alto has been dethroned from the monthly sales charts after two consecutive months but the demand is still high. Maruti sold nearly 14,400 units of its entry-level offering in the month.

  • The WagonR, the not-so-sporty and cheaper alternative to the Swift hatchback, was the third-best selling car in August 2020 with more than 13,700 units sold.

  • Maruti’s sub-4m sedan was the only other model to cross the 13,000 sales mark in August and was the fourth-highest selling car of the month. It wasn’t far off from a podium spot with more than 13,600 units sold.

Maruti Dzire 2020 Launched At Rs 5.89 Lakh

  • The Hyundai Creta continues to be the best-selling compact SUV with nearly 11,800 units sold in August. It’s sales figures are even more impressive in context of its relatively high prices which range between Rs 9.99 lakh and Rs 17.20 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

  • The Maruti Baleno was the next highest-selling model of the month. With 10,742 units sold, it was also the best-selling premium hatchback in August 2020.

  • Kia has managed to stay in the top-10 monthly best-seller’s list thanks to the popularity of the Seltos. This compact SUV recorded over 10,600 sales for the month, not far behind the similarly priced Hyundai Creta.

  • While most cars here are sub-Rs 10 lakh offerings, the Seltos and the Creta are priced way past. This makes their presence in this low price, high volume segment an even bigger feat. 

These Are The 10 Best-selling Cars Of July 2020

  • The Hyundai Grand i10 hatchback rival’s the better-selling Maruit Swift and it is the only other car to enjoy sales of more than 10,000 units in August 2020. 

  • The next two highest-selling cars of the month were both Maruti MPVs. Over 9,300 units of the Ertiga were sold in August 2020 as compared to the Eeco minivan which enjoyed a demand of 9,115 units. These two Maruti cars reiterate the fact that affordable MPVs are still in vogue among buyers.
