It's an excellent month if you are a sedan shopper as a lot of competent cars are available with mouth-watering deals

 

 

Top 10 deals on sedans in April 2014

 

 

 

One car, the new Honda City, has shaken up the mid-size sedan segment. We reported recently that the City sold close to 10,000 cars in March. This has hit its competitors hard as the Verna, Vento, Rapid, Scala and SX4 are all available with big discount packages now. So if you are considering a new midsize sedan, don’t discount the others, pun intended. The same doesn’t reflect on other sedan segments though as there aren’t many tempting deals running this month. Cars like the Chevrolet Sail and Tata Indigo eCS though are trying to get noticed with some good deals. Here are the top 10 deals on sedans offered this April.

 

 

Skoda Rapid Ultima

 

 

 

1. Skoda Rapid

 

Who says Skodas are expensive? Well, everyone. But with the discounts the Rapid is offered with these days, there couldn’t be a better time to buy a solidly built sedan. The Rapid is being offered with deals worth Rs 65,000 to Rs 73,000 depending on the variant. A majority of that component is free first year’s insurance.

Maruti SX4

 

 

 

2. Maruti SX4

 

Maruti’s SX4 continues to get the same offer as last month. Rs 65,000 off makes the sedan good value for money but as we know, an SX4 replacement is coming this year. If you can’t wait and want a Maruti sedan that offers a lot of space and efficiency, the SX4 is a very good buy at these discounted prices.

Renault Scala

 

 

 

3. Renault Scala

 

Discounts on the Scala have reduced since last month but they are still going between Rs 54,000-63,000. Since Renault priced the Scala about Rs 70,000 costlier than it’s badge-engineered cousin, the Sunny, this discount almost nullifies that price difference.

Volkswagen Vento

 

 

 

4. Volkswagen Vento

 

The Volkswagen Vento is doing marginally better than the Skoda Rapid, and as a result, discounts are relatively lesser. These are on the comfortline and Highline variants only though. There are also quite a few 2013 diesel Ventos sold as the Vento Preferred Edition with a few cosmetic updates. These are the best ones to bargain for. Volkswagen also gives 100 percent finance on these models.

Chevrolet Sail

 

 

 

5. Chevrolet Sail

 

After grabbing buyer attention by increasing discounts in March, Chevrolet has dropped offers to Rs 45,000 from Rs 53,000. It’s still a sizeable discount but is it tempting enough to consider the Sail? Well, with so many quality well established compact sedans, it’s still a tough choice to make.

Hyundai Verna

 

 

 

6. Hyundai Verna

 

Hyundai has upped discounts on the Verna by Rs 5,000. This is a direct reduction as it comes in way of a cash discount. Now you get Rs 40,000 off on the petrol and Rs 45,000 off on the diesel variants. The Verna is still a strong selling car but Hyundai will have a tough road ahead as the Honda City is showing signs of sustaining its high sales numbers.

Tata Indigo eCS April Discounts

 

 

 

7. Tata Indigo eCS

 

Time is running out for the eCS. Agreed the first compact sedan for India has had a decent run on the sales charts but its smarter evolved sibling, the Zest is around the corner. With competition right at the showroom, we don’t see the Indigo eCS faring too well and so expect discounts to go up or a official price revision once the Zest is launched. In April, the eCS is going with an Rs 40,000 discount, same as last month, but we see this going up in the near future.

Hyundai Elantra April Discounts

 

 

 

8. Hyundai Elantra

 

Hyundai isn’t offering a corporate discount on the Elantra anymore so discounts have dropped by Rs 20,000 from last month to Rs 35,000 in April. The Elantra is firmly holding the best sales in its segment and the new Toyota Corolla Altis is still over a month away. Once the Altis is launched though, you should check this space.

Toyota Etios April Discounts

 

 

 

9. Toyota Etios

 

Toyota has knocked off the free insurance scheme it was running last month and so their entry level sedan, the Etios, gets a very basic Rs 25,000 off the sticker price. And this too includes a Rs 10,000 exchange bonus so all you get is Rs 15,000 off if you don’t have a car to sell.

10. Maruti Dzire

 

Maruti’s Dzire makes it to the tenth spot on the discounts list. It isn’t a sizeable discount at Rs 20,000 and a majority of it is an exchange bonus. But a discount nonetheless on a hot-selling car is quite rare.
