Best new car discounts this month

2nd May 2018 1:00 pm

Dealerships and manufacturers this month are offering a variety of discounts and benefits on some of their slower selling models and older 2017 stock.

HATCHBACKS

Maruti Ignis petrol
Save up to Rs 50,000
The Ignis comes feature-laden and gets LED projector lamps and other equipment. However, its quirky looks are not easy on the eye for many. The petrol motor under its hood is the proven and refined 1.2-litre K12 unit that’s good for 83hp. Discounts in the range of Rs 50,000 are on offer at most dealerships.

Maruti Suzuki WagonR CNG
Save up to Rs 65,000

Maruti is offering attractive benefits on the WagonR CNG at most locations. The hatchback is popular for its practicality, spacious cabin and hassle-free nature. It is powered by the same 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine found in the standard WagonR, though it produces 59hp and 76Nm of torque in this application. 

Renault Kwid 800cc
Save up to Rs 35,000

The Kwid’s mini-SUV looks are no more a novelty. The less powerful 800cc variant, which gets a 54hp/72Nm three-cylinder motor, is now being offered with benefits of around Rs 35,000 at most locations. The model rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Datsun Redigo and Hyundai Eon.

Volkswagen Polo diesel
Save up to Rs 35,000

The Polo diesel comes with a 1.5-litre engine that’s good for 90hp, though, there is no automatic on offer. The car’s USP is its solid build quality. However, it’s beginning to look a bit dated. The Polo takes on the Swift and the Grand i10 in the Indian market. Discounts in the range of Rs 35,000 are on offer on the 2018 stock.

SUVs & MPVs

2017 Mercedes GLE 350d
Save up to Rs 9.5 lakh
The Mercedes GLE puts passenger comfort above everything else. The cabin is spacious and ride quality is great too. In order to get rid of leftover 2017 stocks, dealers are offering massive discounts of around Rs 9.5 lakh on the GLE 350d, depending on availability. The BMW X3 rival is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel motor that pumps out 258hp and 620Nm of peak torque.

Nissan Terrano
Save up to Rs 1.25 lakh

The Duster-based Terrano SUV is not as popular as it was earlier. It, however, does carry all rugged characteristics and a diesel-AMT option just like the Duster. Nissan is offering discounts and benefits of around Rs 1.25 lakh in order to push sales. A 104hp, 1.5-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel that makes either 85hp or 110hp, are on offer.

Volkswagen Tiguan
Save up to 
Rs 1.25 lakh
The recently launched Tiguan features a 140hp diesel engine and a high-quality cabin. It, however, looks a bit understated and is not a popular contender in the segment, which includes rivals like the Jeep Compass, Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson. Dealers are offering discounts in the range of Rs 1.25 lakh on the SUV at most outlets.

Honda BR-V
Save up to Rs 1 lakh
Honda’s rugged MPV offers three rows of seat but is a bit short on features. It comes with a smooth 1.5-litre petrol while the diesel is a bit noisy. Discounts in the range of Rs 1 lakh are on offer at most dealerships.

SEDANS

Jaguar XF
Save up to Rs 3 lakh

The XF takes on the BMW 5-series head on. It comes with a great steering, a good 240hp petrol and a decent diesel engine as well. The car handles well too, and has a well-equipped cabin and good legroom. Discounts in the range of Rs 3 lakh are on offer in most outlets on the Jaguar XF.

2018 BMW 530d M Sport
Save up to Rs 1.5 lakh

The latest 5-series is the sportiest sedan you can buy. It comes with a punchy 258hp diesel engine and is loaded to the gills, as far as equipment levels go. A discount of around Rs 1.5 lakh makes the deal even more attractive.

Volkswagen Passat
Save up to Rs 1.25 lakh
Volkswagen’s flagship sedan, the Passat, was launched in India recently. It takes on the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. With the whole segment being a slow-seller, the manufacturer is offering discounts in the range of Rs 1.25 lakh on the luxury sedan.

Volkswagen Vento diesel
Save up to Rs 80,000

The Volkswagen Vento takes on the Maruti Ciaz, new Hyundai Verna, Honda City and the Toyota Yaris. The car comes with a decent 1.5-litre diesel engine and also gets the option of an automatic gearbox. Discounts in the range of Rs 80,000 are on offer on the Vento at most locations.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
Save up to Rs 50,000

The Maruti Ciaz offers a spacious cabin, decent equipment and tried and tested petrol and diesel
engine options. It takes on the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna and is priced very competitively.
A facelift is incoming which means dealers are pushing current stocks by offering discounts in the range of Rs 50,000 or more, depending on unsold inventory.
