Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire offsets Alto to become the best-selling car in May

Snapshot: The Alto has been pushed down to the third spot for the first time in over two decades.

Maruti Suzuki Alto that had ruled the number one spot in the list of best selling cars for a really long time now, accrued from the monthly sales numbers has been off-sided by the Swift Dzire in the month of May 2014. The Swift hatchback secured the second place, while the previous leader Alto has been pushed down to the third spot - for the first time in over two decades of its existence in India.

A total of 18,953 units of the DZire compact sedan were sold in May, while the Swift hatchback and the Alto registered sales of 17,936 units and 17,311 units respectively. 

The Swift DZire, which comes at double the price of the Alto also indicates a growing preference for more expensive cars in the Indian auto market. The Maruti Suzuki Alto, which is the cheapest car from the Indian automaker seems to have lost its hold among Indian consumers who have switched to more premium and well-equipped small cars like the Swift and the Swift DZire. 

The Alto is currently prices at Rs 2.76 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi, while the DZire is priced between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 7.3 lakh, depending on the model.
