Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) has to be the gain of other car makers who are looking to cash in the rising demand for entry level sedans and the top seller Dzire from MSI going out of supply. According to a report in The Economic Times, about half a dozen entry-level sedans will hit the Indian roads this festive season. Meanwhile, Dzire, the country's top-selling sedan, has gone out of production due to a lockout at Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant following labour unrest.

Tata Indigo Manza CS, GM Chevrolet Sail, Mahinda Verito compact, New Ambassador, Renault Scala and Ford Fiesta are all likely to be rolled out in the coming weeks as carmakers vie to take the place of Dzire. Existing entry-level models such as Toyota Etios, Hyundai Accent, Tata Indigo CS and Chevrolet Avio too will be aggressively marketed as their toughest rival is already out of stock.

The report stated that Maruti had more than doubled the sales of Dzire to 58,371 units in the first four months of the current fiscal, almost four times more than its nearest competitor Toyota Etios' 15,556 sales. But labour unrests, which led the death of a manager, forced a lockout at Maruti Suzuki's Manesar plant that manufactures Dzire and Swift. With Dzire not expected to missing from showrooms for at least 2-3 months, its rivals have a huge opportunity to gain ground in a market segment that forms almost 10 per cent of the Indian car market with annual sales of 2.5-3 lakh units.
