Compact Hatchbacks have always been the best-selling car segment for a pretty long time which was mostly carried by Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai however, this May 2021 was like no other month we have seen from a pretty long time. This May brought us a total reshuffle in various lists owing to the massive 75% loss of sale in Maruti Suzuki which ruled over the best-selling passenger car list.
