The list of top-selling MPVs in India for August 2019 has been released. The list of the top-10 best-selling MPVs in India showcases the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga top the list with the highest sales for the month of August 2019.

The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga registered a massive growth of 139% in the Indian market. The company recorded 8,391 units of sales in August 2019 compared to just 3,515 units in August 2018.

The increase in sales for the Ertiga MPV is mainly due to the launch of the second-generation model.

The new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga was launched in the Indian market, late last year and is offered with a host of changes over the previous model. The new Ertiga also comes with a more premium and upmarket feel as well, making it a more attractive offering.

The second on the list is the popular Toyota Innova Crysta, which recorded 4,796 units of sales in August 2019. The company registered a decline of 29% compared to the same month in 2018.

The Toyota Innova Crysta is one of the best-selling products from the Japanese brands in the Indian market; on sale for over 10 years in the country.

The Mahindra Bolero is the third best-selling MUV in the list. The Bolero is a rugged work-horse model from the Indian car manufacturer.

The Mahindra Bolero has been on sale in the Indian market for a long time and helps bring in consistent sales to the company. August 2019 saw the Mahindra Bolero register 3,993 units of sales; a 34% drop from the previous year.

The Renault Triber and the Maruti Suzuki XL6 complete the top-five positions in the list. Both the Renault Triber and the Maruti Suzuki XL6 are brand new models in the Indian car market.

The Renault Triber recorded 2,490 units of sales last month to secure the fourth position in the list. The Maruti Suzuki XL6 followed closely with 2,356 units of sales coming in fifth on the list.

Thoughts On The Top-Selling MPVs In India For August 2019

The list of top-selling MPVs in India for August 2019 showcases the Maruti Suzuki leading the way in sales by a good margin. The Toyota Innova Crysta continues to remain second, although it still has a lot of catching up to do. However, the more important change is the presence of the Renault Triber and the Maruti XL6 (a premium 6-seater MPV based on the Ertiga) in the top-five.
