There could be good discounts in December.
IS this for the new 177 bhp version or the old engine stock?

It is already a great big havoc for the aam junta. The state of our roads is pathetic but still we end up paying soo much on taxes.

They collect toll on the highways and if you have recently traveled on the Chennai-Bangalore highway you are wondering why the hell am I paying toll for a highway riddled with such bad surface. Bad toilets, no proper amenities. The few hotels or restaurants charge a bomb cos they know the customer doesnt have a choice.

P.C or any other politician does not have to bother about such things as they travel on our money and it doesnt affect their wallet in anyway.

Rightly said. We pay such heavy road tax in Karnataka but the road conditions are pathetic here. Keeping that aside, I pretty much doubt that there will be a hike in 2014 or at least till February or March. This is pretty much a marketing gimmick.

True, With the elections pretty much round the corner I would not be surprised if there is a negligible decrease in registration charges and road taxes left alone.

Just a fear-mongering drive to help sales in December which is lowest every year (its coming from marketing Department).

If someone gets delivery in Dec, there might be few issues with resale price down the road.

Totally agree.

Also the battle is for market share, and in a shrinking scenario everyone wants a sale, the boys/also ran get sifted from men.

prices go up and discounts go up.

Market and needs are dynamic companies have to adapt.

Hats off to Honda India, for its agility in giving Amaze.

Used diesel and new petrol were in fashion untill now, but with diesel/ CNG/ LPG prices getting aligned with market, a new opportunity will arise.

Now that's a masterstroke, I must admit. If you cannot decongest the roads, tax them so high that less people buy it. Its the same thing in Singapore, where unbelievable taxes apply. What Mr. PC forgot is that Singapore has one of the best public transports in the world, and our roads demand higher ground clearence due to govt. apathy. Its double monopoly by the govt. CCI or SC should do something about it - either improve roads, or reduce taxes on cars with high GC.

PC has got it all wrong. When we need to reduce taxes on home produce, we are increasing them and shooting on our own foot. Yes, CKD tax is also increased, but the point remains that with more tax comes less investment, and hence less exports. It's simple maths, eh!

Honda is planning for an upward revision of the prices from January-2014.

"We are looking to hike prices from the beginning of January. The price hike will be across our entire model range comprising Amaze, Brio, CR-V and Accord," Honda Cars India senior vice president Jnaneshwar Sen told PTI on Wednesday.

As usual, the blame goes to exchange rate and inflation. By the way I have doubt, aren't the condition of Rupee and inflation getting better now?

Yes. It is the 177 bhp premium plus. We tried for a same deal from the dealer for metallic grey colour. He is refusing to give similar discount now. But better to try last week of December. Apparently they have month end sales pressure so they give out discounts out of desperation once in a while. This may not be a standard offer through the year / month. My friend told me that in true Audi style they offered this deal assuming he is a non serious buyer. He was bargaining with them for about a month for this deal.

Can you ask your friend to please share the price breakup?
Hi, I don't know how this exactly works but he got a bill for 37 Lakhs otr price including insurance, registration and taxes. He was given a 5 Lakh refund as some form of a credit note as they did not want to issue a official bill of 32 Lakhs. I shall check for the exact price break up and let you know.

Moderators I tried using the multi quote feature but could not make it work on my tablet. Sorry about the second post.

I am in the market for a small car and had asked a few dealers to send me quotes. Fiat is offering a 100k discount on the 90 HP according to the email I received today. If anyone was on the lookout for the 90HP model, this is probably a good time.

Fiat has been offering such massive discounts to the tune of a Lac for quite sometime now. I feel this will further increase in the month of January in order to clear the old year's inventory.

Please try and find out more details about the car. Its really hard to believe that they offered 5 L discount on an otherwise clean car. The Audi dealer in Delhi was not even marginally close to that figure even when he knew I was a serious buyer and had booked the 3 series and he wanted me to still switch my booking to Audi.

I agree that they are trying to clear their inventory. From what I had normally seen in print advertisements, the figure they quoted on the Punto was to the tune of 60-65k.
The 100k on the 90 HP could be because this model hardly sells. Thought this was a good deal.Hence shared.
