top 5 best selling cars in india in february 2021

Since the start of 2021, many carmakers across the globe have been celebrating better sales than the year prior. In India as well, the coronavirus-induced pandemic robbed many automakers of their valuable customers alongside netting millions in losses. Fortunately for the industry, it seems like the worst has been left behind as sales numbers pick up once again. As expected, it is impossible to talk about car sales in India without mentioning Maruti Suzuki. Being the leading auto brand in the country in terms of its sales volumes, Maruti Suzuki easily finds itself on this list. In fact, four of the five cars on this list are from Maruti’s stables. So, without any further delay, let’s get started with the top 5 best-selling cars in India in February 2021.

1. Maruti Suzuki Swift

In February 2021, Maruti Suzuki sold 20,264 units of the Swift. Not too long ago, the Alto occupied this privileged spot, which is no longer the case now. The Swift has always been a top pick for buyers in the segment as it offers a stylish exterior design, a peppy petrol engine, reasonable practicality, and great fuel efficiency. While the vast majority of the sales must come from the pre-facelift model, the 2021 Swift will have contributed too. Maruti Suzuki launched the facelifted Swift in the last week of February, with prices starting at 5.73 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Swift is available in LXI, VXI, ZXI, and ZXI+ variants, and customers can now choose contrasting dual-tone color options. Features on the Swift include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, Smart Key with push-button start, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a rear parking camera. The Swift gets ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, ISOFIX anchors, and dual front airbags as standard on the safety side of things.

Powering the Maruti Suzuki Swift is a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 89hp and 113Nm of torque. This motor is mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. While the facelift has only added a few new things to the Swift’s kitty, most won’t care much about that. Therefore, the Maruti Suzuki Swift remains firmly in the number one position on this list.

2. Maruti Suzuki Baleno

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno has remained almost unrivaled in the premium hatchback space since its launch in 2015. While rivals like the Hyundai i20 ship a fair number of units every month, the Baleno comes out on top rather easily. In February 2021, the automaker sold 20,070 units of the Baleno. Just like the Swift, the Baleno has made a solid case for itself – offering a suave design along with a spacious cabin and good ride quality. The Maruti Suzuki Baleno is priced between Rs 5.70 Lakh to Rs 9.03 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is sold in four different trim levels.

The Baleno is fairly well-equipped with features, though none are class-leading or really very fancy. However, it does get auto-folding door mirrors, push-button start, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a 7.0-inch touch-infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. Meanwhile, the Baleno’s safety kit includes items like rear parking sensors, ISOFIX anchor points, dual front airbags, and ABS with EBD. When it was crash-tested by Euro NCAP in 2016, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno scored a 3-star safety rating.

The Maruti Suzuki Baleno comes with a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that also gets a mild hybrid system. Together, the net output totals 89hp and 113Nm of peak torque – identical figures to the 2021 Swift. But if you want, there is also a lower-output version of the same engine that makes 82hp. In terms of its gearbox options, the Baleno is available with a CVT and a traditional 5-speed manual transmission. Despite not undergoing many changes, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno is still a pretty good car.

3. Maruti Suzuki WagonR

Available in multiple variants and trim levels, the WagonR is one of Maruti Suzuki’s most popular models. The tallboy design may not be to everyone’s liking, but the roomy interior and affordable price tag make this a solid choice for many. This explains how the automaker was able to move an impressive 18,728 units of the hatchback in February 2021. Meanwhile, prices of the Maruti Suzuki WagonR range between Rs 4.65 Lakh and Rs 6.18 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

In its range-topping avatar, the WagonR gets a few nifty features. There is a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, keyless entry, electrically-adjustable & foldable wing mirrors, power windows, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. The WagonR’s safety suite isn’t all that great, especially if you get one of the lower variants. Higher variants come with dual front airbags, front seatbelts with pre-tensioners & load limiters, and front fog lamps. Unfortunately, the lower trims of the WagonR only get a single airbag, with a front-passenger airbag being an option. Of course, that is not a very good thing.

The Maruti Suzuki WagonR comes with two engine options, including a CNG version as well. In its most uninspiring avatar, the WagonR gets a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that makes 67hp and 90Nm. However, when it is running just on CNG, this engine’s output falls to just 58hp and 78Nm of torque. Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki also offers the WagonR with a larger 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 82hp and 113Nm. Transmission choices on the WagonR include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT, similar to what the Swift offers.

4. Maruti Suzuki Alto

Coming in at number four on this list is the Maruti Suzuki Alto, with 16,919 units sold in February 2021. There are around half-a-dozen variants of the Alto currently on sale, with prices starting at Rs 3.00 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Alto has been one of the brand’s best-selling cars for a long time, and that still holds true. Its sheer inexpensiveness and compact size mean the Maruti Suzuki Alto makes for a decent city runabout for most people.

The features list of the Alto includes keyless entry, front power windows, a 7-inch touch-infotainment system, and central locking. Its safety gadgets (if you can call them that) include ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and dual front airbags. Powering the Maruti Suzuki Alto is an 800cc three-cylinder petrol engine that puts out about 47hp and 69Nm of torque. But when fueled by CNG, this same motor only musters up 40hp and 60Nm. However, no matter which variant of the Alto you buy, all come with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

5. Hyundai Creta

The Hyundai Creta, even though the most expensive car on this list, finds itself here quite easily. In February 2021, the Korean automaker sold 12,428 units of the Creta, making it the best-selling car in its segment. In India, the Creta is available in at least a dozen different variants and trim options – priced between Rs 10.00 Lakh to Rs 17.54 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Creta comes packed with many features such as cruise control, ventilated front seats, a wireless charger, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, and a 10.25-inch touch-infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay. Meanwhile, its safety nannies come in the form of dual front airbags, Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, plus a rearview parking camera with active guidelines. Where its exterior styling has drawn criticisms, the sheer popularity of the Creta cannot be undermined.

The 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated MPi petrol engine in the Creta makes 113hp and 144Nm and comes 6-speed manual or a CVT. For those who want an oil burner, there is a 1.5-liter turbo-diesel motor that produces 113hp and 250Nm. It can be had with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox. Finally, there is the 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine that puts out 138hp and 242Nm and can be paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
