In a bid to counter the sales drop Maruti Suzuki has experienced in the month of July, the carmaker’s Nexa dealers have been authorised to offer significant discounts and boost sales figures. In fact, Maruti’s July 2019 sales fell below the 1 lakh-unit mark for the first time in quite a while. During the month of August, every car that retail out of Maruti’s Nexa showrooms comes with significant benefits and discounts, irrespective of the variant.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
Save up to Rs 70,000
Maruti’s midsize sedan is available with three engine options – a 105hp, 1.5-litre petrol with Smart Hybrid tech, a 90hp, 1.3-litre diesel with the same mild-hybrid technology and a 95hp, 1.5-litre diesel without any battery electric tech. The lower-spec petrol models (Sigma, Delta and Zeta), which come with a 5-speed manual as standard, can now be bought with benefits and discounts worth Rs 55,000, while benefits of up to Rs 35,000 are now being offered top-spec Alpha manual and the automatic variants (4-speed torque convertor). Besides the top-spec variant, all the other trims that are available with the 1.3-litre diesel can be had at a discount of Rs 70,000, while the 1.5-litre diesel engine versions of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz carry a Rs 55,000 discount.
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross
Save up to Rs 60,000
For now, Maruti offers just one engine-gearbox option with the S-Cross – a 90hp, 1.3-litre diesel mated to a 5-speed manual. On offer with four variants, potential buyers can now get benefits worth Rs 60,000 on the lower-spec S-Cross Sigma and Delta and up to Rs 55,000 on the Zeta and Alpha variants. The Maruti Suzuki S-Cross will soon get a new petrol engine option – it’s the same BS6-compliant 1.5-litre (K15B) engine that has just made its debut on the Ertiga. However, the current motor on this Hyundai Creta rival will be discontinued in the run up to the April 1, 2020, deadline for BS6 emission norms.
Maruti Suzuki Ignis
Save up to Rs 55,000
Both, the manual and automatic variants of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis are now available with benefits worth Rs 55,000 at select Maruti Suzuki Nexa dealerships. The funky-looking premium hatchback is powered by an 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol motor that comes paired to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The Ignis rivals the Mahindra KUV100 NXT in our market.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno
Save up to Rs 45,000
The bestselling model that Maruti retails from its Nexa outlets, the Baleno, now comes with a BS6-compliant version of the 1.2-litre petrol engine and a new mild-hybrid 90hp, 1.2-litre DualJet motor, along with the previously available BS4-compliant 75hp, 1.3-litre diesel. As Nexa dealers still have stocks of BS4 petrol models, they are being offered with benefits of up to Rs 45,000. The Baleno RS, which is powered by a BS4-compliant 102hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor, can now be had with an identical Rs 45,000 discount. The BS6 petrol and the BS4 diesel versions of the Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz and Hyundai i20 rival can now be had with benefits worth Rs 40,000 and Rs 35,000, respectively.
