Car sales during summers are usually slack as new car buyers usually wait for the festive season or might have already purchased one during the financial year end due to lucrative discounts. For the ones who are looking to buy a new car but are waiting for discounts, here below are a few car manufacturers who are offering selective models at discounted prices in the country.
The country’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is offering lucrative discounts across models like – the Alto K10, Celerio, WagonR, Ignis, and the premium sedan, the Ciaz. The Alto K10 and the WagonR attracts discounts of up to Rs 50,000 and Rs 60,000 respectively, while the Celerio attracts discounts of up to Rs 40,000. At the Nexa outlets, the Ignis and the Ciaz are offered with discounts of up to Rs 50,000.
The offers and benefits include consumer bonus and exchange bonus. Individual dealers may offer additional accessories and offers at their discretion.
The company’s entry-level product offering, the Kwid 800cc attracts benefits of up to Rs 35,000. The comparatively newer 1.0-litre option has been a popular seller in its segment, while the sales for the smaller engine option has been dropping in recent times. Competing against the likes of the Eon and the Alto 800, the Kwid is a modest offering which is powered by a 0.8-litre three-cylinder engine that generates 54bhp of power and 72Nm of torque.
Japanese car manufacturer Honda is offering heavy discounts across its product line up in India. The Brio attracts benefits of up to Rs 24,000 while the Amaze attracts discounts of up to Rs 40,000. With the 2017 Amaze model, one can avail an additional discount of Rs 7,500. Honda Jazz attracts a discount of Rs 1 lakh, with an additional Rs 10,000 on the 2017 model. The popular City sedan attracts a total discount of Rs 47,000 which includes a Rs 15,000 discount on the 2017 model. Honda’s slow selling product, the BR-V attracts benefits of up to Rs 75,000, including the Rs 15,000 discount on the 2017 model. The CR-V is offered with a flat cash discount of Rs 1.5 lakhs, probably to make way for the new model. The popular seller, the WR-V attracts discounts of up to Rs 27,000 including the Rs 15,000 discount for the 2017 model.
German car manufacturer Volkswagen has a wide range of cars which are on offer for this month. The diesel variant of the Polo is offered with a discount of up to Rs 35,000, while the Vento attracts discounts of up to Rs 80,000. From the premium lot, the Tiguan and the Passat are both offered with discounts of up to Rs 1.20 lakhs. Owing to the diesel controversy and lack of freshness in terms of product upgrades, the sales for the company has slowed down in India.
Speaking of discounts, Korean car manufacturer Hyundai is offering benefits of up to Rs 61,500 on the Eon. The new Xcent sedan offers benefits of up to Rs 87,000 on the petrol variant while the diesel version attracts benefits of up to Rs 88,500. The Grand i10 Era petrol variant is available for a special price of Rs 4.29 lakhs. Additionally the company is also offering benefits of up to Rs 80,500 in the petrol variant of the Grand i10, while the diesel version attracts discounts of up to Rs 87,500.
It is worth noting that most of the car models which are on offer have been witnessing a drop in sales in recent times. Unsold stock and arrival of new models post the Auto Expo event in the country has prompted car manufacturers to push for sales during summers especially because the demand is low around this period.
