Hyundai Grand i10 was launched in September 2013. This is the first time it has posted monthly sales higher than Maruti Swift.

Maruti Suzuki India Limited once again dominated the list of Top 10 selling cars in November 2015 with 6 of its models in the list.

As always, Alto, DZire and WagonR commanded top spots. Surprisingly, the fourth Maruti model which was missing from the top half of the list was Maruti Swift. Salws of Swift dipped to 11,859 units as compared to sales of 17,900 units in November 2014 causing it to lose its position among best sellers. This is due to the canabalizing by Baleno.
