Attractive discounts on new cars, SUVs this month

Dealerships from many mass-market carmakers are now offering significant discounts and benefits on a number of models during the month of February. Some, like Maruti Suzuki, are looking to clear stocks of older models (the previous-gen Wagon R and pre-facelift Baleno) while others hope to boost sales of their slower-selling models.

HATCHBACKS

Maruti Suzuki Wagon R (previous-gen)

Save up to Rs 1 lakh
Maruti Suzuki’s popular tall-boy hatchback has been replaced by an all-new Wagon R. As a result, unsold stocks of the older generation of the hatchback are being offered at massive discounts in order to clear inventory. Some outlets are offering benefits of around Rs 1 lakh on the model, which is powered by a 68hp, 1.0-litre petrol with manual and AMT options.

Renault Kwid

Save up to Rs 85,000
Renault dealers are offering benefits on the Kwid hatchback, which include cash discounts and other freebies. The model will get an update soon so as to maintain the new standard of equipment, especially in terms of safety kit. Total available benefits on the model are in the tune of Rs 85,000. More discounts are expected on unsold 2018 stocks. The Kiwd comes with a 0.8-litre petrol and a 1.0-litre petrol engine – the former is mated to 5-speed manual only while the latter gets manual and AMT options.

2018 Ford Figo

Save up to Rs 65,000
The Figo is one of the slowest-selling models for the brand and an update is due soon.  The Figo takes on models like the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Hyundai Grand i10. Discounts and benefits in the range of Rs 65,000 are on offer. Haggle hard and you might end up saving a bit more on this practical hatchback. For now, the Ford gets an 88hp, 1.2-litre petrol and a 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel, though when the facelift arrives, the former will be replaced by the new 96hp, 1.2-litre petrol motor that currently powers the Freestyle and Aspire.
