New-generation Maruti Dzire is, currently, the top-selling compact sedan of the country. In fact, the new Dzire outsold Maruti Suzuki’s all-time best-selling Alto hatchback in August 2017. The sub-4 meter sedan registered a total sales of 30934 units and 34305 units in month of August and September 2017, respectively. This is the highest-ever monthly sales registered by any car in India.
Considering the high demand, the waiting period of the new Dzire has gone up to 3 months on some variants. A latest report claims that Maruti Suzuki has an order backlog of around 40,000 units of the new Dzire. These figures will further shoot up as bookings for the vehicle are higher than usual in the big festive month. Read – 10 Best Selling Cars in India in August 2017
