Wow. Nice to know that Suzi is doing good.

But then the links clearly mention about the small-car segment being a major reason. And there lie the volumes which manufacturers concentrating on medium/bigger cars cannot even dream of. More so in our country.

The new Swift is the main reason for this to happen.

No Actually its some 600cc car that's making the waves.

Even Toyota has recently made some deals with Diahatsu for a diesel engine and a small car.

Thats surprising to hear, but its only because of small budget cars. So its quite obvious that Suzuki will sell more volumes.

Default Re: Suzuki Beats Honda for No.3 spot

Suzuki is now the second best-selling car brand in Japan beating Honda for the second consecutive year.


Best-Selling Vehicle Manufacturers in Japan in 2021 (Q1):

Suzuki Beats Honda for No.3 spot-1.jpg

Toyota remained by far the largest carmaker in Japan and gained market share.

Quote:
Suzuki was again the second best-selling car brand in Japan and extended its lead over Honda that had weaker units sales.
Suzuki was the best-performing top-ten brand while Honda was the worst. Of the top-ten brands, Nissan and Mitsubishi also gained market share while Mazda and Hino had weaker volume sales.
