Take the Team-BHP PDI check list with you and if the PDI turns out fine and the ODO has lesser kms on it, even the August car is worth it, even though it is the older Ritz.

There are not many significant changes between the pre-facelift Ritz and the new 2012 Ritz. They have advertised more than 50 changes between both variants but all of them are cosmetic - the engine, chassis, suspension, etc. are the same. I checked out both of them during our recent TDs (we are picking up our 2012 facelifted Ritz VDI tomorrow as well), and I can assure you, there aren't too many changes to the sides, rear and interiors.

The older blue/black interior color scheme has been replaced by black/red (firebrick red, to be exact), which looks outlandish (thankfully there is a choice between black/red interiors and black/grey interiors). Plus the front now houses a slightly larger air dam, bigger smiley grille, and leaf-styled elongated fog lamp casings.

But remember, the older model is after all the older model, and might depreciate a bit more quickly than the newer one. All said and done, I would any day prefer the top variant over the middle one, specially if it's offered at a mouth-watering price. Plus, the facelift was launched not too long ago so you don't lose much. It is, after all, a 2012 car in the end.

All the best! Do let us know how it goes.

I'll suggest you to go ahead with Zxi, even if its old shape, As F/L Ritz have very minor changes. And, Don't forget Zxi will have Airbags and ABS, Which can prove to be a life safer later.

Just do a detailed PDI and check the odo readings. if everything goes well, Zxi is the way to go.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Sameer

In Hyderabad, SX4 Diesel has 50,000 cash discount with additional 25, 000 exchange bonus. OTR for ZDI comes around 10.25 L with exchange.

Thanks,

I have booked the new Ritz Diesel VDI [Silver Color with Red Interiors] last week and am getting the following Deal in Pune at Chowgule Industries Dealer:

OTR [Pune] - 6,67,978
Cash Discount - 22,000
Corporate Discount - 3,000
Exchange bonus - 15000

No other Freebies offered. Not even Mud Flaps, Floor Mats. Tried negotiating a lot but no luck.
There is a AD in today's Paper of only Upto 30,000 Discount on the New Ritz Diesel in Pune. [15,000 Consumer Offer and 15,000 Exchange Bonus].
I am going in for 0% Dep. from New India Assurance from the dealer and they have quoted it 21,000. I think it is a bit on the higher side. I will be using by 45% NCB of my old Car and paying a much lesser price.

Is this a Good Deal or is any better deal available in Pune on the Ritz Diesel ?

Chennai TOI carried this advertisement today, Ertiga Diesel offer - Save up to Rs 20,000/- - http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Defau...&ViewMode=HTML

Am surprised that Maruti is giving discounts on Diesel - Never heard before except of Ritz model.

Hi friends ,
made final payment to the dealer today and final discount given is 75000 as dealer insisted on silver color instead of earlier promised pearl white. So final price is 5.25lacs - 75000 = 4.5 lacs . Paid them ins amount of 14500 and 50000 as total down payment and 4 lacs loan from sbi at zero processing fee , that too arranged by dealer.
I think the dealer at our place is more nice and fair.

Just heard that fiat is back with "book a petrol car and stand to win a diesel car at the same price"! If the winner still wants to go ahead with the petrol, will get the difference as cash back. Not aware of the exact offer will need to check.

I wanted to check if it is worth buying a 2011 manufactured Kizashi (new, from Maruti)?

The 5L discount is all that is being offered, and the dealer is not providing the VIN (has provided instead this number: 100548). I am not sure how to figure out when the vehicle was manufactured. I will go back and ask the dealer for the VIN, however wanted to check first if it is worth it. I read somewhere else that additional discounts are possible, so if the car were to be available at a greater discount, would it then be worth it?

Many thanks

PS. Petrol is a non issue as this car is not for me. The person buying it has done about 50-60k in their previous car in the last nearly 10 years, and expects running to increase only marginally over the next few years.

Just don't go for 3M coating. In Pune, 3M company has terminated all tie-ups with Honda due to various issues and complaints they received from customers. When 3M checked the case, they found out that the products were not deployed as per 3M standards by the Honda guys. If you really want the coating, go to a 3M car care centre.

Ask for some other useful accessory in place of the coating.

Rest of the deal is ok, however I guess you can bargain more. Also check what other dealers are offering.

Not sweet enough. Ask the SA to sweeten it further. Look at this quote from BANGALORE. Remember road tax in BANGALORE is 18%

Another thing is that the insurance they give is not the nil-depreciation? Should I ask them for that? Must-have? Not sure about that either.

You might want to bargain for free extended warranty. Avoid the teflon coating is nothing but hogwash. Instead ask for body cover.

Instead of paying 40k for caska get it done from outside. More choices and if you get hold of a good installer, he will not cut existing wiring thus retaining your electrical warranty.

By the way mats and mud flaps aren't more than 2.5k. Ask for more cash discount instead.

Good luck

Hi,

Maruti VIN or chassis number is pretty simple. Look for the last two digits on the chassis number after an asterisk. If it is a 2012 car, the last character of the chassis number would be "C", "B" for 2011, "A" for 2010, "9" for 2009 and so on.

The second last character can be anything from A to M. A stands for Jan, B for Feb, and so on. "I" is skipped.

Be sure to verify the chassis number yourself.

See details here:
