For Indian car aficionados, the Tata Punch has emerged as the go-to choice, overshadowing other options despite Tata Motors facing recent challenges. Wondering what’s behind this shift? Well, with the release of April 2024 sales figures by all vehicle manufacturers, some intriguing twists have surfaced in the top 10 best-selling cars in India.

Notably, the Tata Nexon, previously at the 11th spot, has made a significant leap, securing the tenth position this time around. Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki, amidst halting some car productions, has reaffirmed its dominance as India’s top seller. Alongside consistent performers, there’s a fresh presence in the top 10 lineup.

In April 2024, the Tata Nexon claimed the tenth spot, marking the highest sales for the month. With 12,060 units sold, it showcased a substantial increase from the 10,504 units sold in April 2023. Maruti, discontinuing the Swift’s diesel variant, managed to clinch the eighth position with the Maruti Fronx, selling 14,286 units in April 2024, a noteworthy rise from 8,784 units last year.

However, the Maruti Baleno slipped to eighth place, selling 14,049 units compared to 16,180 units last April. On the other hand, the Hyundai Creta experienced a slight uptick, securing fifth place with 15,447 units sold in April 2024. Meanwhile, the Mahindra Scorpio ascended to sixth place, selling 14,807 units.

A standout surge in sales was witnessed by the Maruti Ertiga, landing it in ninth place, with 13,544 units sold, a significant leap from 5,532 units last year. The Maruti Eeco also saw growth, securing tenth place with 12,060 units sold in April 2024.

Maruti’s sedan model, the Dzire, claimed fourth place, selling 15,825 units compared to 10,132 units last April. The Maruti Brezza, Maruti’s sub-4-meter SUV, secured third place with 17,113 units sold, marking a significant increase from 11,836 units last year.

Maruti’s long-standing top-selling status in India has faced challenges. The Maruti Wagonr, holding the top spot for an extended period, slid to second place in April 2024, selling 17,850 units compared to 20,879 units last year, indicating a 15% decline. The emergence of Tata Punch as April 2024’s best-seller suggests a potential shift in India’s car market hierarchy post-March 2024.
