Also, it was successfully able to reach the landmark of 2 million sales in the September last year. This tomboyish look designed car runs on a 1000cc mill which has the capacity of producing 67bhp along with the 90Nm of torque.

Its predecessor, Swift Dzire was highest selling sedan in the country and the Dzire is also keeping that momentum going. The company was able to sell over 2.25 thousand units last year.

The company has rolled out several special editions and over 1.67 lakh units were sold last year. The company has introduced the latest version of the car this year, which is going strong to the market. With booking itself, the car made history with over 1 lakhs booking received within two weeks. The petrol version is available in both automatic and manual transmission. Its 1.2 litre petrol engine generates 83 horses whereas the 1.3 litre diesel motor creates 74bhp of power.
Next, to Maruti, the second car brand which is able to get the good numbers is Hyundai. The company has gained immense popularity with the models like Santro and i10. Taking their legacy further, the company introduced Grand i10 with diesel and petrol version. Ever since its introduction, it got hugely popular in the segment and has been giving a good number of sales to the company every year. In the year 2014, it won Indian car of the year. On an average, the Korean company sells over 12000 units every month. The reliability of the car is its key features, which no other manufacturer offers in the segment. The car runs on 1.2 litre petrol and diesel engines. The petrol motor churns out 81bhp while the diesel mill produces 74bhp.
Launched in October 2015, Maruti Suzuki Baleno was much-awaited premium hatchback from Maruti. With its impressive flowing shape, the car successfully carved a different niche for itself. It was introduced to compete against the likes of Hyundai i20, the first premium hatchback of the country. The company also introduced its 110bhp version of the RS last year. The car recorded a sales growth of 81 percent last year with over 1.74 lakh units. The company is able to sell over 14000 units every month, keeping it in the list of highest selling cars in India.

The Elite i20 is the second-best seller for the Korean automobile manufacturer. With average sales of over 11000 every month, the company was able to sell over 1.30 lakh units in the last year. The vehicle witnessed the update in 2017 with dual tone paint scheme and several other features. It was the Indian Car of the Year in 2015. It is one of those vehicles that began altogether a new segment in the country with its launch. The 1.4 litre diesel motor produces 89bhp and the 1.2 litre petrol motor churns 82bhp.
There is a reason why it became Indian car of the year in 2016. Hyundai was able to reach this landmark thrice continuously with the Grand i10 in 2014, the Elite i20 in 2015 and the Creta in 2016. Despite the price tag of over 10 lakhs, the vehicle is still managed to keep itself in the list of top 10 selling cars in 2018. It was brought into the market to fight against the likes of Renault Duster. It is also amongst the top-selling diesel cars in India.

Its 1.4l diesel motor produces 89bhp whereas the 1.6l variant can reach the mark of 126bhp.
While other manufacturers create the segment, the Maruti Suzuki, on the other hand, brings something that outshines its competitors. The Vitara is one such product from its fleet. We are always in love with SUV’s having an affordable price with low running cost and the dependable engine is no less than a dream come true. It is a five-seater vehicle. This is what Brezza brought for us. Even though it does not have a petrol engine, it allows its customers to customize it. The 1.3 litre motor creates 89bhp at the peak torque of 200Nm.
This is one of those vehicles, which get benefitted because of the brand name attached to it. With its average looks and performance, the vehicle is amongst the highest selling cars in India. It gives tough competition of Renault Kwid and Tata Tiago to reach the list. The company sells around 8000 units of Celerio every month. The 998cc engine can create 67bhp with 90Nm of peak torque.
These are top 10 highest selling cars of 2018. As of now, a little more than a half of the year has gone, we don’t know if there will be any change in the list. As these vehicles have been performing well from past few years. Moreover, there are various vehicles available on the market which does not get a similar number of sales regardless of having a wonderful performance. The vehicles such as Ford Figo, Ford Eco Sport (which started the Compact- SUV market), Renault Kwid and Tata Tiago, despite good performance they aren’t able to get good sales.
