Top 10 Deals on Sedans in July 2014

 

 

 

You are not going to find many strong selling cars being offered with hefty deals at showrooms. It’s the cars facing stiff competition from the best cars in their segments that are trying to woo you. Among sedans sold in India, The most tempting ones are the Vento and Rapid twins, the SX4 and the Verna, all facing massive heat from the City’s scorching sales. A segment lower, we can see entry level mid-sizers battling it out to get some sales that the Dzire Xcent and Amaze don’t capture. There’s fantastic bang for your buck waiting to be had if you shop wisely and ignore the best selling monikers.

 

 

Volkswagen Vento

 

 

 

1. Volkswagen Vento

Volkswagen will give the Vento an update in September and until then, the German carmaker is hoping the sales don’t slip too much. The fact is that the Vento sales have dwindled due to strong products from its competition and so the rather well built car that boasts of good interior space and a fantastic diesel engine is finding few takers. But the Vento is outstanding value now. It not only costs lesser than the City and the Verna spec-for-spec, it’s also got a massive Rs 95,000 discount running on the top-spec diesel.

Maruti SX4

 

 

 

2. Maruti SX4

The wait for the new SX4 which is known as the Ciaz or the Alivio is prolonging with no confirmed news yet from Maruti. Meanwhile, India’s largest carmaker hasn’t pulled the plug yet on the SX4. The SX4 is superb value though as a no nonsense sedan. It’s also being offered with hefty cash discounts and more. Frugal diesel engine, a spacious cabin and Maruti’s service backup make it for a good buy for someone looking for something a notch above a compact sedan.

Skoda Rapid

 

 

 

3. Skoda Rapid

If you are getting a good deal on a Vento, be rest assured that Skoda is running similar offers on the Rapid as well. Both cars sail in the same boat but unlike the Vento, that’s going to receive an update soon, the Rapid gets a nip-n-tuck job only towards the end of 2014. Till then, the Czech carmaker will depend on discounting to push the sedan off the block. Not all variants are being offered with discounts now though. Take a look at the ones that are.

Chevrolet Sail

 

 

 

4. Chevrolet Sail

Like its hatchback sibling, the Sail is proving to be a rather sluggish product for a company that has lost its sheen in India. There are a few counts though on which the Sail is impressive – value for money, ride quality, efficient diesel engine (since it is the Fiat sourced Multijet unit) and interior space.  If you don’t care too much about driving dynamics and a low rent badge, the Sail will suit you fine at the discounts GM is running. Moreover, GM has more than doubled these discounts from last month so it’s a good time to buy the Sail.

Hyundai Verna

 

 

 

5. Hyundai Verna

Hyundai is consistent with discounts on the Verna since the beginning of this year. You get a Rs 45,000-50,000 bundle on the Verna in July. And since the Verna is almost as good as the Honda City and demand for the City is so high that waiting periods are extending by the day, buying a Verna now makes better sense than before. The diesel variants get a higher cash discount and are the ones to buy as the 1.6-litre unit packs in a decent punch.

Tata Indigo eCS

 

 

 

6. Tata Indigo eCS

There’s little case to make for the eCS as it will soon be cannibalized by the Tata Zest. Both compact sedans, the first that started it all and the second that’s two generations younger. The Indigo eCS though is a very cheap car to purchase and has ample space on the inside. If you car on a tight budget looking for a three box car, the Indigo eCS gets a big shoutout. Discounts aren’t too high though.

Maruti Dzire

 

 

 

7. Maruti Dzire

The Dzire’s sales continue to baffle us. It sells more than the Swift while it costs more and the only thing extra it offers is a piddly little extra boot space. Even better products like the Amaze and the Xcent can’t dent the Dzire’s run and that’s mainly got to do with two things – Maruti’s network, frugal engines, low running costs and crowd mentality. If everyone is buying the Dzire, it must be better than the rest is the thought process. Making it slightly better value for money is the Rs 30,000 discount Maruti is offering.

Ford Classic

 

 

 

8. Ford Classic

Every time you seem to put in money on the Fiesta Classic, it gets cheaper in a few more months. That’s been the story of the Classic in the recent past. The Classic may not be contemporary but it still sells better than the new Fiesta. This is because it’s hard to beat the Classic for the outstanding value it delivers. Discounts worth Rs 25,000 aren’t much but for a car that’s already good bang for your buck, anything extra is worth grabbing.

Skoda Superb

 

 

 

9. Skoda Superb

The Superb offers more than cars even a segment higher don’t. The Skoda badge is not as premium as the German three and that works in the Superb’s favour as the understated car for the non-flashy car buyer. Discounts will not sway you into buying a Superb though.

Toyota Etios

 

 

 

10. Toyota Etios

Toyota doesn’t resort to a lot a lot of discounting, even if that means that it makes the job of the sales team tougher. In fact discounts on the Etios have reduced to just Rs 12,000 making it the least tempting sedan to buy if you are looking to save a buck. Space, reliability and fuel efficiency are the Etios’ trump cards and only this should make your decision sway, not the discounts.
