The prolonged auto slowdown in the country saw car sales plummet to new lows through the course of 2019. The New Year has also started on an inauspicious note with automakers reporting a 13 percent decline in sales in January year-on-year.

The prolonged auto slowdown in the country saw car sales plummet to new lows through the course of 2019. The New Year has also started on an inauspicious note with automakers reporting a 13 percent decline in sales in January year-on-year.

However, Maruti Suzuki had a better start to the year than a majority of its rivals. India's largest passenger car maker reported 1.6 percent rise in total sales in January 2020, selling 154,123 units against 151,721 units in the corresponding month last year.
Some of Maruti’s best-sellers recorded strong sales growth for the company. Eeco's sales climbed 61 percent in January month-on-month, rising from 7,634 units sold in December to 12,324 units last month. Dzire recorded a 47 percent growth, Wagon R 41 percent and Swift 35 percent.
