16th Jul 2018 11:54 am

Dealerships and manufacturers this month are offering a number of discounts and benefits on some of their slower selling models and clearing stock for new models and facelifts.

HATCHBACKS

Ford Figo

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
Ford's entry-level model for our market, the Figo hatchback, comes with a decent cabin but unexciting engines. An updated model, with a new petrol engine along with many more features is due soon. In order to use up stock, dealers are offering benefits in the range of Rs 1 lakh on the Figo.

Honda Jazz diesel

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
The Jazz takes on the Hyundai i20 and the popular Maruti Baleno. It is spacious and the top variant's rear seats come with clever folding that offers good occupant and cargo space flexibility. Its exterior styling is a bit bland – one of the reasons for its poor sales. Honda dealers
are offering discounts of up to Rs 1 lakh on the diesel Jazz.

Hyundai Grand i10

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
The Grand i10 is Hyundai’s answer to the Maruti Suzuki Swift. A comfortable and practical hatchback, it comes with an 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol and a 75hp, 1.2-litre diesel engine option. There’s also an option of a petrol-automatic. The Grand i10’s sluggish sales have made Hyundai offer discounts and benefits in the range of Rs 1 lakh on this stylish hatchback.

Maruti Wagon R

Save up to Rs 75,000
The popular WagonR will soon be replaced by an all-new model. However, its frugal and reliable engine, and spacious cabin still make it a practical choice in the segment. The hatchback can be had at discounts and benefits of about Rs 75,000 across most locations.

Toyota Etios Liva

Save up to Rs 65,000
The Toyota Etios has been on sale for a while now. While the styling is dated, the Etios is a practical hatchback with great cabin space and a tried-and-tested diesel engine. There is no automatic gearbox available, however. Dealers are offering benefits of up to Rs 65,000.

Maruti Ignis

Save up to Rs 65,000
Maruti’s quirky hatchback is available with 75hp, 1.3-litre diesel and 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engines and also comes decently equipped, with the top variant getting LED lights. Its cabin has a decent amount of space with good headroom. Benefits in the range of Rs 65,000 are on offer on both petrol and diesel variants of the Ignis at Maruti’s Nexa outlets.

SUVs & MPVs

BMW X5 xDrive30d M Sport

Save up to Rs 10.3 lakh
The X5 is BMW's answer to the Mercedes GLE and the Audi Q7. It will soon be replaced by a new-generation model. The current X5 gets a high-quality interior with a punchy diesel engine along with stylish looks, thanks to the M package, but it doesn't offer CarPlay. Dealers are offering massive discounts
on this SUV.

Mercedes GLC

Save up to Rs 6 lakh
Mercedes’ newest SUV, the GLC is available with the option of a petrol and diesel engine. It rivals the Volvo XC60, the new BMW X3 and the Audi Q5. It gets a high-quality cabin and a long
list of standard features. You can save up to Rs 6 lakh on the model.

Audi Q3

Save up to Rs 3.5 lakh
Audi’s smallest SUV, the Q3 takes on the BMW X1 and the Mercedes GLA. It also sees competition from the well- equipped Volvo XC40. The Q3 comes with a cabin that offers decent space, a competitive feature list and multiple engine options. The model, however, has been on sale for a while now and feels dated. Dealers are offering discounts of up to Rs 3.5 lakh on the SUV.

Honda CR-V

Save up to Rs 2.25 lakh
Honda will replace the current-gen CR-V with an all-new model later this year. The outgoing CR-V is now being offered at a discount of Rs 2.25 lakh. The SUV is well-known for its versatile nature and is a capable all-rounder. It, however, does not come with a diesel engine but gets the options of a 156hp, 2.0-litre and a 190hp, 2.4-litre petrol engine. The CR-V takes on the Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass petrol in our market.

Tata Hexa

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
Tata’s flagship SUV, the Hexa comes with three rows of seats and two gearbox options. The manual variant also gets optional AWD. The Hexa takes on the Mahindra XUV500 as well as lower variants of the Jeep Compass.  Most dealerships are offering discounts and benefits of up to Rs 1 lakh on the Hexa.

Honda BR-V

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
A direct rival to the Creta, the BR-V comes with a clever three-row seating. It shares its petrol and diesel engines with the Honda City, but there is no diesel- automatic on offer. Its interiors, however, are a bit of a letdown in terms of quality. Discounts in the range of Rs 85,000 to 1 lakh are on offer.

Toyota Fortuner

Save up to Rs 75,000
The stylish Toyota Fortuner has been a segment leader for long now. Currently, it faces competition from the Ford Endeavour, and the Jeep Compass to some extent. Available with petrol and diesel engine options, the Fortuner’s rugged character along with its comfortable nature and luxurious styling makes it a popular choice in the segment. Benefits of up to Rs 75,000 are being offered at dealerships.

Toyota Innova Crysta petrol

Save up to Rs 55,000
The petrol-powered Innova Crysta is a slow seller for an obvious reason, like low fuel economy. It, however, comes with a refined 166hp, 2.7-litre engine that is responsive when required. When it comes to the cabin and features list, it is well-equipped. However, the steering is a bit on the heavier side. The Innova Crysta petrol is now being offered at a discount in the range of Rs 55,000 at most locations, depending on unsold inventory.

Jeep Compass petrol

Save up to Rs 50,000
The Compass petrol comes with Fiat’s 163hp, 1.4-litre turbo engine. There is no 4WD on offer but all the other plus points of the SUV still remain. Its cabin is spacious for five adults and it is decently sized for tight city roads too. Key rivals include the Hyundai Tucson, Volkswagen Tiguan and the Honda CR-V.

SEDANS

BMW 330i M-Sport

Save up to Rs 7 lakh
The BMW 330i M-Sport comes with a punchy, 252hp petrol engine, well-equipped cabin and M-Sport goodies like additional exterior and interior bits. Add to that the popular BMW 3-series handling characteristics. The Mercedes C-class rival is available at a discount of Rs 7 lakh at all locations.

Audi A3

Save up to Rs 5 lakh
The Audi A3 sedan takes on the Mercedes-Benz CLA in our market. With most buyers shifting to SUVs, the sedan segment is a slow-selling one. Audi is offering discounts of Rs 5 lakh to push sales.

BMW 530d M Sport

Save up to Rs 5 lakh
The new BMW 530D M Sport comes with a cracker of a diesel engine and a long list of features, along with BMW's trademark sporty handling. The M Sport package adds 'M' bits to the exterior and interior. Select dealerships are offering discounts of up to Rs 5 lakh on the model.

2018 Mercedes E-class

Save up to Rs 3.5 lakh
The latest-gen E-class is an epitome of a game changer thanks to the added length that facilitates acres of legroom for the rear passengers. Available with two diesels and a petrol engine option, the long-wheelbase E-class, currently, has no direct competition, as its rivals don’t come in this configuration. However, the BMW 5-series, Jaguar XF and the new BMW 6-series GT are good options at that price point.

Hyundai Xcent

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
A direct rival to the Maruti Dzire and the new Honda Amaze, the Hyundai Xcent has a narrow cabin but comes on par with its competitors as far as the equipment list goes. It comes with 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engine options, along with a petrol-automatic option as well. Discounts in the range of Rs 1 lakh are on offer on the smallest Hyundai sedan in India.

Ford Aspire

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
The Figo-based Aspire takes on the Maruti Dzire and the new Honda Amaze. The refreshed version comes with exterior and interior tweaks, more features and an all-new petrol engine. Dealers are offering discounts and benefits of up to Rs 1 lakh at most outlets.

Maruti Ciaz diesel

Save up to Rs 1.3 lakh
The Ciaz gets Maruti’s fuel-saving SHVS tech, spacious interiors and a decent features list. A mid-cycle update is due soon, which could be the reason why Maruti’s Nexa dealers are offering discounts in the range of Rs 1.3 lakh on the Ciaz. Key rivals include the Honda City, the recently launched Toyota Yaris and the Hyundai Verna.

Honda City

Save up to Rs 65,000
Honda’s popular sedan sees stiff competition from the recently launched Toyota Yaris, the Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Ciaz.

Discounts and benefits in the range of Rs 65,000 are on offer on this Honda sedan. 

Tata Tigor

Save up to Rs 47,000
The Tigor is Tata's answer to the new Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, and the Maruti Dzire. It comes with decent petrol and diesel engine options, and a competitive feature list.
