Coming back to Maruti Suzuki, this is not the first time that the company has completely dominated the chart for best-selling cars in the country. It manages to do this month after month. So, this brings us to an important question.
What is the reason behind this?
Well, it is quite simple and most of you must be aware of it already!
Maruti Suzuki has cultivated a very strong brand image in India. It was one of the three earliest automobile companies in India. Every car that Maruti has launched, have stood the test of time by offering superior reliability. On top of that, each Maruti car is backed by the company’s second to none after sales network.
But is the most important factor is the company’s image of producing highly fuel-efficient vehicles. Which it continues to maintain it even today with the use of new technology. These are some of the reasons why buyers choose Maruti Suzuki cars over other brands. This is true even in the cases when comparable products from other brands tend to offer a better ‘package’ on a number of different parameters.
