Maruti Suzuki surpassed its parent company in overall production in 2009. "Maruti Suzuki manufactured 9,66,399 units during the calender year 2009 and its sales for the whole year was 9,67,581 units. Both these figures are higher than Suzuki's production figure of 9,08,302 units," the source informed.

Maruti’s small car and current lead model Alto topped the charts with highest sales in its product portfolio with 2.4 lakh units while WagonR trailed with overall sales figure of 1.4 lakh units.

Maruti Suzuki currently dominates the Indian auto market with more than 50 percent share in the country. It now faces tough competition for its small car models from world leaders like Volkswagen, Nissan, Toyota, Honda and Hyundai and Tata Motors. Maruti’s current product portfolio includes M-800, Omni, Alto, WagonR, Estilo, A-star, Ritz, Swift, Dzire, the sedan SX4, Gypsy, the SUV Grand Vitara and the recently launched family car Eeco.
