After keeping us waiting for a long time, the Japanese carmaker finally entered the compact sedan market in India with the Yaris. Toyota not only resorted to only-petrol approach with the Yaris, it also equipped it with seven airbags and automatic transmission option right from the base variant. The Yaris is equipped with various segment-first features such as seven airbags as standard, front parking sensors, an 8-way electrically adjustable driver seat, all four disc brakes, vehicle stability program and tyre pressure monitoring system, but it’s still not the top selling car in its segment. However, it still makes an entry in this list as it is amongst the top selling 10 new cars that were launched in 2018.

9. Ford Aspire facelift

  • Price range: Rs 5.55 lakh to Rs 8.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)
  • Fuel options: Petrol and Diesel
  • Transmission options: 5-speed MT and 6-speed AT (petrol only)
  • Average sales since launch: 2051 units/month

The Aspire got the new Dragon series petrol engines from the Freestyle and EcoSport this year. With this, its automatic version with the 1.5-litre unit made it one of the most powerful cars in its segment. Other than that, it carried on with its long list of safety features in the top-spec trim to remain one of the safest cars in its segment. Compare its sales to its rivals and the Aspire might not be as popular, but it’s a competitive package nonetheless.

8. Ford Freestyle

  • Price range: Rs 5.23 lakh to Rs 7.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi)
  • Fuel options: Petrol and Diesel

The Freestyle is a benchmark on the safety front as well.

It not only helped Maruti on the sales front, but the sedan also debuted the carmaker’s new 1.5-litre petrol engine with SHVS. It replaced the 1.4-litre unit that was found on the pre-facelift Ciaz and Ertiga.

The sedan was received well in the Indian market as it managed average monthly sales of 10,000 units in the initial months, making it the best-selling Honda in the country. Even now, the Amaze is the second most popular car in its segment after the Maruti Suzuki Dzire.

Hyundai reintroduced the Santro in India in October 2018, around 20 years after the original hatchback entered the market in 1998. It continues to build on the strong points of its predecessor such as a tall boy design and long list of features. In just one month of its sales (Nov 2018), Hyundai has managed to sell 9,009 units of the reincarnated hatchback, making  it the third most selling car in its class after the Maruti Suzuki WagonR and Celerio. In the list of popular new cars launched this year, the Santro is at number four, but since it’s a new launch, it remains to be seen whether its popularity goes up or comes down with time.

The new Creta builds on the strengths of its predecessor and it is visible in the numbers as the SUV continues to maintain monthly average sales of around 10,000 units. It’s soon going to get some competition though, from the Nissan Kicks, Tata Harrier and Kia’s upcoming SUV.

2. Hyundai Elite i20 facelift

The Elite i20 continues to remain one of the most popular premium hatchbacks in India. It got a mid-life update this year and with that, it got a significant update to its rear-end. The engines remain the same but it received a CVT automatic transmission with the petrol engine after a few months from its launch. The Elite i20 seems to be expensive as the prices top out at Rs x.xx lakh, but it makes up for it with its premium appearance and features. It will be interesting to see if Kia would bring its own version of the i20 to India or not.

1. Maruti Suzuki Swift

  • Price range: Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 8.76 lakh
  • Fuel options: Petrol and Diesel
  • Transmission options: 5-speed MT and AMT
