Buyers can easily get benefits of roughly Rs 20,000 – 30,000 across most car models on sale today. Select slow-moving models, like the Renault Duster and the Hyundai Aura Turbo, are being offered with benefits of over Rs 50,000.
While carmakers have recently hiked the prices of some of their models, select slow-moving models can be had at lucrative discount offers or benefits. Although the discounts aren’t really as enticing as they usually are towards the end of a calendar year, here’s a list of some discounts and offers you need to know before making your purchase decision.
Despite being the highest selling car in March, the Swift is now being offered at a discount. The Manesar-based brand is offering the LXi trim of the Swift with a cash discount of Rs 30,000, along with an exchange bonus of Rs 20,000. Maruti is also offering the VXi, ZXi, and ZXi+ trims with a cash discount of Rs 10,000 and an exchange bonus of Rs 20,000. Cash discounts on other Maruti models like the Alto 800, S-Presso, Celerio, Eeco, Wagon R, Dzire, and Vitara Brezza range between Rs 8,000 and Rs 20,000. Maruti’s premium range of Nexa cars is also being offered with some decent cash discounts. The Ignis can be had with a cash markdown of Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000, depending on the variant. A similar reduction in price is also being offered on the Baleno and the S-Cross.
On some models, Hyundai is also offering similar discounts and benefits as Maruti Suzuki. The Korean carmaker is offering benefits of up to Rs 50,000 on the Grand i10 Nios Turbo and the Aura Turbo. Selected variants of the Santro are being offered with hefty benefits of up to Rs 35,000 as well. Interestingly, Hyundai has no ongoing offers for the Venue, Verna, Creta, Elantra, Tucson, and the Kona Electric.
Volkswagen has officially marked down the pricing of the Polo. The entry-level Trendline variant with the 1.0 MPI motor can be had at Rs 5.84 lakh (ex-showroom), which is roughly Rs 32,500 less than its market price. Similarly, the Comfortline now carries a sticker price of Rs 6.94 lakh – a reduction of Rs 17,000. The price tag of Highline Plus trims with the 1.0 TSI mill has also been lowered by up to Rs 15,000. Additionally, VW is also offering an exchange bonus of Rs 20,000 and a loyalty bonus of Rs 10,000 on select variants of the Polo.
With less than 500 units of the Duster getting sold every month, it isn’t quite surprising that Renault is offering it at heavy discounts. Whether it is the 1.5-litre trim or the new 1.3-litre turbo, the Duster can be had with a blanket cash discount of Rs 30,000. Additionally, Renault is also offering Rs 30,000 corporate benefits on select variants. The Rxs trim with the 1.3-litre turbo heart can be had with maximum benefits of up to Rs 60,000, in addition to a cash discount of Rs 30,000. While the Kwid and the Triber have been bringing in good numbers for the French brand, Renault has some good ongoing offers on them as well, with benefits of up to Rs 50,000.
