Can you please help.

Thanks

If power is not a priority then get the ML250CDI it has adequate power. The 350 is priced much higher and the price jump does not seem justified.
Besides the engine I think the only big difference between the two besides cosmetic changes like bigger alloys is that the 350 comes with air suspension. This is defiantly a plus however reviews claim the 250's suspension is very good too.
Do try and bargain hard if you find a 2012 350 lying in a dealers yard, those move very slow off the floor. You could land up with a price that makes it worthwhile.

Thanks a lot Nikhil for the info. Here in Delhi they're offering me 3.4L including corporate discount on the 320d Luxury Line. Could you please PM me the dealership name and representative who offered this discount in Mumbai? Thanks again.

I had booked an i20 last month. However, after visiting Dakshin Honda today, had no choice but to cancel the i20 booking and go for the Amaze Petrol.

OTR Price - 7.07L
Booking Amout - 21,000
Waiting period - 3 months
Discounts & Freebies - Nil (Not even floor mats)

They have quoted a waiting period of 3 months. I hope they respect that and delivery doesn't get delayed.

This is the colour I have booked.

Default General Motors to hike car prices by upto 10K

It's a double-whammy for car-makers. The falling sales graph and increasing input costs are squeezing them hard.

GM has announced that it will hike prices across models by 1.5%. Will others follow suit too?
Detailed report here: http://profit.ndtv.com/news/industri...=home-business

Well, its just the beginning I am sure the other manufacturers are going to announce the price hike soon. Government really hates the automobile market in India and wants to make sure that both consumers and manufacturers suffers.

Question Discounts on New cars.. Cause and Effect !

Autocar submits a report with figures of tempting Discounts offerings on new cars (by some or more dealers)

http://www.autocarindia.com/News/343...his-month.aspx

Looks kind of stock clearance sale ? but why ? To pave in the new launches on cards..or to clear existing, before new launches of cars being applauded ?

With the recent trend of indians to go for a new launched cars, how well still the dealers will get response on these offerrings.. ?

Though Indian Car Market is becoming the launchpad for new cars, with many big players stepping in and making the presence felt; but as they are launched sooner than before years, with something new to give everytime; it is not only becoming hard for the makers to predict the sales numbers owing to the changing demands of the customers; there is no doubt common man would be seeking multiple options before settling down to one..

TeamBHP analysis is definitely a must see for buyers, is also what I can feel

Hi Spyder, apart from the discounts on Swift/Dzire/Ertiga and i20 Diesel, I really don't see anything new at the moment. The discounts to these, i would attribute to the Amaze.

Most of the cars mentioned in the article have been available at discounts for quite a long time now. eg, Estilo, Alto, WagonR, etc

Yes, we are having discounts for most of these from dealers, but this in news with figures, after quite time now, I just wanted to discuss its cause and effect from our Indian car market..
BTW your choice Amaze would be a good buy for sure..

Well the brighter side of this, Manufacturers are passing the tax rebates that they get by claiming depreciation for 2012 models. Pretty sure they will be passing only a slight percentage of the benefit to end users.

Skoda Rapid did offer me a whopping 100K discount for their top version in Beige Color and 140K for their top version in RED Color.

Default Re: General Motors to hike car prices by upto 10K

General Motors India has said that it will increase prices of its entire range of cars by up to Rs 10,000 from the first week of June. GM has said that prices are being increased as a result of increased logistic and transportation costs (due to higher Diesel prices).

GM's entry level offering presently, is the 1.0 BS3 Chevrolet Spark variant, priced at Rs 3,31,447 (ex showroom Delhi). The most expensive vehicle offered by GM India is the 2.2 LTZ AWD BS4 Captiva, priced at Rs 24,59,866 (ex showroom Delhi).

Chevrolet has been battling with sliding sales figures, the Beat and Spark hatchbacks have posted a decline in Year-on-Year sales of 56% and 68% respectively (for month of April).

GM is also offering a 'Loyalty Discount' on its Chevrolet vehicles to the tune of Rs 10,000, till the end of May. The offer can be availed by Chevrolet (and Opel) owners.

Price hike is inevitable, however, OEMs should prepare to "add value" to the car before hiking price. They should plan minor changes in-lined with price hike.

Whenever a vehicle is introduced, OEMs keep price as low as possible to attract customers and after 6 months or one year they show their real colors by increasing price atleast 10%.

Maruti Ertiga Vdi comes with 30K discount including exchange bonus until May 30th.

Discount = 15,000
Exchange Bonus = 15,000 (Should have owned that old car for at least 2 months to be eligible)

OTR (VDI): 9,79,446 - 30,000 = 9,49,446

But, surprisingly Vxi has only Exchange bonus of 15,000.
OTR (VXI - ABS): 8,27,528 - 15,000 = 8,12,528

Forgot to ask if there are any other loyalty bonus and/or corporate discount.

Is that DDIS engine worth that ~1,40,000 difference? I don't think so.

Looks like Maruti has hiked the price by about 80/90k within this 1 year!

Among the notable add-ons that Maruti gave is DDIs and default ABS/EBD on the V trim.
Just six months back, With Diesel enjoying huge subsidy. There was no Difference. But now with Diesel catching up, we are expected to hear more such questions .
So I am hoping that atleast those who use their cars once in a blue moon will not need a Diesel anymore.
