Yes, This figure also includes the Dzire tour which is the old Dzire which is seen as a airport taxi now a days.

I dont think Amaze or even the newer Dzire can become a taxi. Honda service is not known to be cheap and Honda is yet to run as a taxi in India. Maruti has a good experience selling Eeco and Omni for taxi segment and came up with old Dzire for taxi

Ask any taxi guy, he will find Etios or Verito much more economical than Amaze or Dzire.

Honda has surely tasted success. I feel they deserve it after being silent for so many years without a diesel motor. Hope their service network also delivers to the new breed of Honda customers who seek VFM car as compared to earlier Honda owners who did not mind shelling out few extra grands

With Honda managing 11342 units in May-13, they seem to have edged Tata for the 3rd spot in MOM Sales. There are barely 200 units defining the position this time... close call clap:.

^^^ Correction, Tata & Honda have now locked horns for the 4th position. M&M s in 3rd with almost double sales as that of either.

Honda will secure the 4th position by next month. We should see Toyota/GM/Ford giving a close fight to Tata for 5th position as well. With no new models in sight, its tough times ahead for Tata

Hatchbacks sales tumble (only exception i20).

Quote:

Market leader Maruti Swift, suffered a 6% decline in sales while Volkswagen Polo was just a shade better at 5% down in the four months to April. According to the data of the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers, sales of Toyota Liva crashed by 28%, Ford Figo fared even worse at 38% decline and Nissan Micra witnessed the steepest fall of 62% during this period.

i think govt should re-think on charging different excise duty for below and above 4 meter. If they make it uniform, customers will get a spacious car. in order to make the car with-in 4 meters, manufacturers compromising on boot space and rear leg room. If govt increases the limit to 4.5 meters, vehicles like honda city / verna / duster will be more affordable.

Maybe this (hatchbacks sales tumble, with only exception i20) means that people expect more features in small cars too unlike the past when an AC & power steering were considered luxury in hatches. I believe, auto manufacturers need to experiment with interior shades as compared to all dark interiors (Black/ Grey) as people tend to prefer lighter shades to premium-ness & cleanliness, & the dark interiors are considered too basic & workmanlike, which one buys so that he/ she needs not spend a fortune & effort in maintaining the interiors.

Moreover, not all people prefer to have pocket rockets, i.e. cars that handle well. IMO, a lot of people go for slower cars with soft suspension, as they tend to associate the same with luxurious ride quality.

Higher sales of Dzire over Swift is just an example in favour of the above arguments.
