The sales trend fluctuated in every category. For instance, in the 1300cc category, the sales of Honda (Civic and City) and Corolla saw a dip, but the sales of Suzuki Swift, on the other hand, went up by 11% to 355 units sold in December 2018.
The sales of Honda Civic and City went down by 32% m-o-m to 1989 units sold in December 2018, and the sales of Corolla went down by 15% to 4179 units m-o-m.

Well, the overall increase in the passenger cars sales was mainly because people knew that the automakers will be increasing the prices at the beginning of the new year; which they have done.
Coming towards the two-wheelers, the sales have declined by 7% month-on-month, and 12% year-on-year. The total bikes sold in December were 111,172.
