On the other hand, the compact car segment that comprises of cars like Maruti Swift, Maruti Ritz and Maruti Estilo posted a jump of 14.66 per cent in the sales with 24,290 units as compared to 21,185 units in the same time period last year.

However, Maruti SX4 sales skidded by a staggering 85.01 per cent to 405 units against 2,702 units sold in May 2011. Maruti’s sole luxury sedan present in India, Maruti Kizashi sales too fell by 76 per cent at 12 units as compared to 50 units sold in May 2011. This clearly shows that Maruti Suzuki India needs to focus on the mini car segment that lacks diesel engine, also something needs to be done to lift up the fading sales of Maruti SX4, maybe the company should think of giving it a facelift along with cutting its boot a bit. Also Kizashi had been a dud seller from the beginning; this might be an indication for Maruti to assemble it locally in India to cut down its cost. Maruti sure will have something on its mind, hope the company comes up with a viable solution soon to ramp up its sales.

It more rigidity and resistance. The interiors are well mated and have enough space for the passengers. The legroom is good and the headroom of the car is also sufficient and Three rear occupants can sit comfortably, however there is not headrest for the middle occupant, The feature which I liked in this car is Music system whose surround is damn good. The one and only setback of this car is its legroom. Swift Dzire is the best buy in the range
