With car sales not showing many signs of recovering from the downward spiral, Maruti Suzuki is offering some attractive discounts and benefits on its cars being sold via the Arena dealership chain. Here's a look at the deals you can avail at your nearest Maruti Arena dealership.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza
Benefits up to Rs 1.05 lakh
The Vitara Brezza has long ruled the compact-SUV roost, despite lacking a petrol engine option, as offered by most of its rivals. Now though it is facing stiffer competition, with Hyundai having recently launching its maiden compact SUV, the Venue. Offered solely with Maruti’s tried-and-tested 1.3-litre diesel engine in its more powerful 90hp/200Nm state of tune, dealers are offering benefits of up to Rs 1 lakh on the compact SUV, including a complimentary five-year extended warranty. Buyers not opting for the extended warranty can ask for equivalent cash benefits.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire
Benefits up to Rs 90,000
The Dzire has long been a strong seller for the brand over its three generations. For the month of September 2019, Maruti is offering benefits worth up to Rs 90,000 on the compact sedan. These benefits are being offered on the diesel model and buyers are being offered a mix of cash benefits, exchange bonus and a complementary five-year extended warranty package (diesel only) or its cash equivalent in additional discounts. The petrol model, on the other hand, is being offered with benefits of up to Rs 60,000 across all its variants. The Dzire is offered with Maruti’s tried and tested 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engines with both available with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox option. The petrol unit has been upgraded to meet BS6 emission norms, with the diesel set to meet its end closer to the April 2020 deadline.
Maruti Suzuki Swift
Benefits up to Rs 80,000
The hatchback sibling of the Dzire, the Swift has remained one of Maruti’s best seller for many years. As with the Dzire, the Swift is offered with the choice of either Maruti’s BS6-compliant 1.2-litre K-Series petrol or 1.3-litre diesel engine with both units offered with either a manual or AMT gearbox option. The diesel variants are being offered with cash benefits of up to Rs 30,000 along with a complementary extended warranty package (or equivalent cash discount if not selected) along with exchange benefits of up to Rs 20,000 (same for petrol) among others. The petrol variants, on the other hand, are being offered with total benefits worth up to Rs 50,000 including an exchange bonus. As with the Dzire, the complementary extended warranty package is only available on the diesel model.
Maruti Suzuki Alto, Alto K10
Benefits up to Rs 70,000
Maruti’s long-standing best-seller is being offered with benefits of up to Rs 70,000 for both the 800cc Alto and the 1.0-litre Alto K10. The Alto earlier in the year underwent a facelift which saw the engine be upgraded to meet BS6 emission standard along with the car getting a cosmetic makeover and meeting the upcoming crash- and pedestrian-safety regulations. The new facelift also saw the deletion of the ‘800’ from the car’s name. Maruti is offering cash benefits of up to Rs 40,000, along with exchange benefits of up to Rs 20,000 on both the Alto siblings.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio
Benefits up to Rs 70,000
Maruti’s rival to the likes of the Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago, the Celerio is a petrol-only model and is offered with the carmaker’s 1.0-litre K10 unit paired with a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox. Maruti is offering the budget hatchback with benefits similar to the Alto siblings with cash benefits of up to Rs 40,000 and an additional exchange bonus of Rs 20,000.
Maruti Suzuki Eeco
Benefits up to Rs 55,000
Maruti’s long-running people mover, the Eeco, saw an update earlier this year which saw the car meet the safety norms that came into effect earlier this year. The update saw the addition of mandatory safety kit such as seat-belt reminders for the driver and co-driver, front airbags, ABS and a speed alert system. The model of choice among many taxi operators, the Eeco is being offered with benefits of up to Rs 55,000 for the 7-seater and Rs 45,000 for the 5-seater variants.
Maruti Suzuki Omni
Benefits up to Rs 35,000
The Omni is no longer being manufactured by Maruti for a few months now. The long serving van in its lifetime remained a popular choice particularly with cargo transports in its commercial guise and also found use as taxis and ambulances. Dealers are offering discounts of up to Rs 35,000 on the budget people-mover if they have units lying in stock.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R
Benefits up to Rs 25,000
The new Wagon R seemingly bucked the downward sales trend in July this year with strong sales of over 15,000 and becoming the bestselling model for the month – a five-place jump over the previous month's standings. Dealers are offering benefits of up to Rs 25,000 across all variants of the tall-boy hatchback. Unlike its predecessor, the new Wagon R is offered with a choice of petrol engine options – the familiar 1.0-litre K10 unit and the new for the model BS6-compliant 1.2-litre K12 petrol unit used by the Swift and Dzire. Buyers can additionally opt for a factory-fit CNG model based on the 1.0-litre model.
