SX4 Vs Honda City

SX4 the new car launched by MUL in May did well in the first month in the market, beating the market leader in the segment Honda city by close to 200 cars, but June city is back into leadership position. City has clawed back into number one position the segment with a sale of 2,656 cars versus 1,975 of SX4. MUL has cited the regular maintenance shut down of the plant, the same reason given by Honda on the lower sales of ‘City’ in May. The shut-down lead to lower supplies to the dealers hence the lower sales. One wonders in today's world with the advanced supply chain management systems in place and ERP.... and what not to track the supplies, plan for and monitor manufacturing, can the company not plan for regular maintenance shut-down.I think there is more to what the company's are ready to share; none of the companies want to accept that the sales are down because of reasons other than supply glitches. The car war in the segment has just started and the coming months will show who the winner is, though I have a personal bias towards SX4.
