Last month in June, we saw a massive drop in the car sales, owing to the uncertainty over the GST. Now that the GST is here, manufacturers and customers, both have got a clear idea of the new unified tax regime. The markets have bounced back to the normal now and Maruti alone managed to sell over 1.5 lakh vehicles in the month of July 2017. The India’s biggest carmaker also dominated the top 10 car list with seven of its models in the chart, while the rest of the three spots were occupied by Hyundai models.

In the hindsight, cars like Hyundai Grand i10, which entered the top 3 selling cars in June, again slipped below, while the Maruti Suzuki Alto continues to rule the rooster, with a bounce back in the sales numbers. Cars like Vitara Brezza experienced a 20% sales hike in the last month. Overall, the top 10 cars managed a good 1.5 lakh unit sales. So here’s a complete list of the Top 10 cars sold in the month of July 2017!
