Yes, we are back with the sizzling deals that car manufacturers are bringing in the month of March 2011 for the Indian buyers. Listed below are some of the major players of the game who are offering deals to entice the buyers into show rooms.
The General is offering a cash discount on its slow selling model, the Chevrolet Aveo. It is reported that the company is offering a discount on all its 1.4 and 1.6 models. The cash discount which is worth Rs 30,000 is something wherein which one doesn’t have to forsake the 3 years free maintenance package that GM offers. Now, that what we call a real deal.
Mahindra and Mahindra:
Ahead of the launch of the W201 SUV, Mahindra and Mahindra are giving discounts on its failed joint venture car, the Mahindra Logan. Discounts of as much as Rs 20,000 is been offered on the petrol variants of this car. The diesel variants however don’t enjoy this benefits. A slightly face lifted Logan is on the cards soon and without the Renault badge.
Maruti Suzuki India Limited:
The country’s largest car maker is all set to offer its much loved hatchback, the Maruti Ritz with a discount of Rs 33,0000. There is a cash discount of Rs 21,000 whereas if you plan to exchange your existing car, the discount stretches to another Rs 12,000. This discount applies across the entire range of Ritz cars.
For the Tata Indica Vista, Tata Motors is offering an exchange bonus of Rs 10,000 and also free insurance worth of Rs 17,000. This makes it a total package of Rs 27,000. The Indica Vista is a competent hatchback and would definitely benefit from this magnamity from the company. The Tata Sumo Grande is the other model on which, across the entire range, one gets a discount of Rs 10,000.
Europe’s largest car manufacturer, Volkswagen, in India is offering their Volkswagen Jetta car with a discount. The reason for this generous thought from the company is because the older Jetta is all set to be replaced by a new one shortly. Dealers are offering upto Rs 75,000 off on all the variants. The breakup for the amount is Rs 60,000 off for the insurance for the first year followed by a Rs 15,000 navigation system for free or even a cash discount for the same amount. Roughly this comes to 5 percent of the vehicle’s on road price. We at Indiandrives feel that this is the right time to go in for the Volkswagen Jetta even though a replacement for the same is already on the cards. Due to the discounts that one would be getting now, if you plan to sell the car later on, its relatively lower resale value would be negated somewhat.
