Maruti Suzuki has been selling the Dzire compact sedan in India for over 10 years now and till now has reached around 19 lakh customers. The Dzire, now, is a subcompact sedan but Maruti Suzuki has had a compact sedan iteration before and the number of customers it has reached to is a combination of sales of both these cars. In 2018-19, Maruti Suzuki sold over 2.5 lakh units of the Dzire subcompact sedan averaging a monthly sales of 21,000 units. There's no doubt it leads the pack in the segment and boasts of a market share of 55 per cent, while the Amaze is a distant second.
