Typically first time car buyers are of the view that the price quoted by new car showrooms can’t be bargained upon. That is not true as almost all new car showrooms offer a cash discount and an exchange bonus to increase sales. However, the deals being offered vary across dealerships. Here’s a compilation of the current deals being offered by different manufacturers.
On August 1, 2016, Maruti announced an increase in price on all models under their stable. Surprisingly, the company is now giving away good discounts on its mainstream cars. Take the Alto 800, the best selling car in India, for instance. Maruti is offering a deal of Rs 15,000 as cash discount and a Rs 20,000 exchange bonus. The more powerful Alto K10 gets the same deal and saves Rs 35,000 on the final price. Moving on to the WagonR which has the best discount deal on offer. A cash discount of Rs 25,000 and an exchange bonus of Rs 35,000 is being offered. That totals up to a whopping Rs 60,000.
With the new Maruti Suzuki Swift being in the works, the current model also has a discount deal of Rs 10,000 as cash discount and Rs 15,000 as exchange bonus.
