Renault is now offering significant year-end discounts on its entire India line-up in order to clear stocks of older models. Potential buyers can avail various benefits and discounts, which will make their buy even more value for money. Before setting out to buy that new Renault car, SUV or MPV that you’ve had your eye on, check out our comprehensive list:
Save up to Rs 40,000
Renault’s rival to the Maruti Suzuki Alto (800 and K10), Datsun’s Redigo and recently updated Go, and Hyundai’s all-new Santro has got the essentials correct – its SUV-inspired looks are eye-catching and it’s spacious, comfortable and practical. There are two petrol engines on offer – a 54hp, 0.8-litre mill and a 68hp, 1.0-litre engine. Both are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, though the larger motor gets the option of a 5-speed AMT. Select Renault dealers have been authorised to offer a variety of benefits, including a Rs 15,000 cash discount, a Rs 15,000 exchange bonus, free insurance for the first year, a Rs 2,000 corporate discount for government employees and PSU clients, a four-year warranty package and some attractive EMI schemes.
Save up to Rs 1.05 lakh
The rugged Duster now has even more value for money with dealers offering cash benefits of up to Rs 60,000, free insurance for the first year and an additional Rs 5,000 discount for corporate buyers. However, these benefits can only be availed on the more powerful 110hp diesel version of the Duster that comes with a either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AMT. The rival to the Maruti Suzuki S-cross and Nissan Terrano is also available with a 106hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine (with 5-speed manual and CVT options) and an 85hp, 1.5-litre diesel motor.
Save up to Rs 2 lakh
Renault’s Captur has not been all that successful in attracting buyers, which is one of the reasons why potential customers of the higher-spec TxT and Platine trims can avail one-year insurance at Re 1. There are still a number of 2017 models that have a significant Rs 2 lakh discount on offer, bringing down the price of the base petrol variant from Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 7.99 lakh, and the top-spec diesel Platine’s price-tag down to Rs 11.25 lakh. The Captur shares the Duster's 106hp, 1.5-litre petrol and 110hp, 1.5-litre diesel, with 5-speed manual and 6-speed manual gearboxes, respectively.
Save up to Rs 1.55 lakh
The Lodgy is facing increasing competition from the likes of Mahindra’s Marazzo and the second-gen Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. In order to make its MPV more competitive, dealers are offering a whopping Rs 1.5 lakh cash discount on the 85hp, lower-spec Standard and RxE variants bringing the price down to Rs 7.13 lakh and Rs 8.14 lakh, respectively. Seeing as the new Ertiga range starts at Rs 7.44 lakh for the petrol and Rs 8.44 lakh for the diesel, the Lodgy’s value-for-money proposition has been enhanced. If opting for the higher-spec Stepway models (which get rugged bits all around), buyers can avail a Rs 1 lakh cash discount and free insurance for the first year. This brings the price of the Lodgy Stepway variants down to Rs 9.54-11.12 lakh, which makes it more competitive against the Mahindra Marazzo (Rs 9.99-13.90 lakh*) and new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Rs 7.44-10.90 lakh)
