Despite SUV domination, sedan sales are rising, especially at the lower end of the price spectrum. Vehicles that operate in this price segment are sub 4m sedans falling into B-segment like Dzire, Aura, Tigor and Amaze. These are the top 4 sedans in India currently.

Topping the sales chart, we have Dzire from Maruti Suzuki, selling just a hair under 12K units. A decent growth was registered YoY at 12.83% as opposed to 10,633 units sold in 2021.

Despite this MoM loss, Dzire commanded 35.63% market share, down from 39.39% a month before.
