Entry-level cars don’t find as many buyers as they used to

If we take a look at the August 2021 hatchback car sales charts for entry, mid-range, and high-end vehicles, it’s clear that buyers these days prefer higher-priced cars.

However, India remains a developing country and buying a car remains a far-fetched dream for many families. When saving the money to buy a new car (most opt ​​for used cars these days) their first choice is the Maruti Alto.

The Maruti S-Presso sold 6,011 units fewer than its stable mate, while third-placed Renault Kwid found 2,969 new homes last month.

In total, the cars in the segment recorded sales of 23,462 units, which is a decrease of 2% from their sales for the same month a year ago.

Unlike the months that have passed, in August, the Swift took first place in the sedan sales list.

Its 12,483 unit sales could not be matched by the Wagon R which recorded sales of 9,628 units. Third place on the list went to Hyundai’s Grand i10 NIOS which found just over 8,000 new buyers.

The Tiago de Tata came in fourth with 5,658 units sold, followed by the Maruti Ignis which was brought home by 2,053 people and the Santro which recorded 1,731 units sold.

The others did not do well, and overall car sales in the segment amounted to 39,641 units, representing a 29% year-over-year decline in sales.

Maruti’s Baleno topped premium sedan sales for August 2021, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, as it was the best-selling car in the country last month.

Hyundai’s i20 (7,340 units) outperformed the Tata Altroz ​​(6,175 units) this time around, while the Toyota Glanza (1,832 units) managed to beat the Volkswagen Polo (1,306 units).

Overall, the segment’s cars recorded sales of 33,012, which equates to 21% year-over-year sales growth.
