At ninth position, 10,254 units of Maruti Eeco were sold last month pushing Hyundai’s Grand i10 to tenth, according to the data by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM). The model also registered 23 per cent growth in last fiscal.

Alto, the people’s car, once again retained its title of highest selling car with 22,766 units sold last month, as per SIAM. Alto had also been top selling model for FY19 with the sales of 259,401 units.
