Results of a time-killing activity on a Friday:

Petrol hatch-backs in India:

(Prices are OTR Pune)
  1. Indica Vista 65HP GVX: 5.60 lacs
  2. Beat LT Optional: 5.60 lacs
  3. Punto 1.2 Emotion: 5.70 lacs
  4. Ritz ZXi: 5.80 lacs
  5. Swift ZXi: 6.15 lacs
  6. Micra XV: 6.15 lacs
  7. Fabia Elegance: 6.60 lacs
  8. i20 Asta: 6.70 lacs
  9. Polo Highline: 6.80 lacs
  10. Indica Vista 90HP GZX: 6.80 lacs
  11. Punto 1.4 Emotion Pack: 6.80 lacs
  12. Jazz X: 6.90 lacs
Some observations:
  • Look how immaculately new Swift has been placed.
  • Even though Jazz still looks to be the most expensive hatch, IMHO I would prefer it over i20, Indica Vista 90HP, Punto 1.4 EPK, Micra XV.
  • IMO Tata has lost the game with the 90HP Vista. They were always known to be best VFM in India, but look at the price of Vista 90HP. No offense to any Vista 90HP owner, but I think its way too expensive.
P.S. The actual prices could be +- 5k, but this could give you an idea. Also, other states prices would obviously be different, for instance, Delhi prices are always lower than Pune and Banglore prices are always higher than Pune.

Please note that I may have omitted a few cars here because I thought that they were not suitable in this list.

Couldn't agree more. I think Honda has got the pricing right for Jazz now; of course, 10-20k off further and Jazz will top the charts.

The competition is the ~6.5 bracket is mind-blowing; can't imagine how spoilt the Indian customer is.

One thing though - for how many of these listed cars does the diesel sell more than the petrol? Eg. i20

Except Polo, i20 and Jazz (naturally), all other vehicles' diesel variants sell more. In some cases, the share of petrol cars is just about 10-15%.

I have got the following quote:
Car-Fiat Punto MJD
Variant-Active
City-Ghaziabad
OTR- 5.38 L for White and additional 4k for Tuscan Wine colour
Accessories- Mud flaps, Mats, Idol and perfume (regular stuff)
Central locking quoted at 8.5 k

I request you guys to please reflect on these numbers.
Is there room to haggle more?
Will this price/availability get affected in any way after the announcement by FIAT regarding separate dealership?

Just got a call from Hyundai SA saying that they are offering 12K-15K discounts on Petrol i20 versions.

I am sure Hyundai have started feeling the heat from the Swift and SPHJ.

With Brio and Liva Diesel launches in September, things are going to be very interesting in the hatchback segement.

Could this be the "ANHC" effect? The already slow moving Lineas (saleswise) would hardly find any buyers now, when one gets the very reliable, fun to drive ANHC at slashed prices. If this is not enough, the recent events of TATA-FIAT going separate ways (at least for the dealerships/ showrooms) would have made the dealers a bit jittery & they might now be thinking of getting rid of whatever inventory they have at the earliest, before the auto demand slowdown hits them really hard.

5.38 L for Active variant is probably a OK price. There is obviously a lot of room to haggle more. Firstly, Fiat is not doing good at all. Secondly, Punto's Active variant is least sold of all the variants. You should bargain for another 10-15k cash discount or get some useful accessories such as art-leather seats, reverse parking sensors with camera, or tell them to give you the Tuscan Wine colour without extra charge.

Central locking for 8.5 k? What central locking are you referring to? If you are referring to Remote locking, then it doesn't cost more than 3-4k anywhere in India. If Active variant doesn't have central locking mechanism, then may be thats the cost to get it fitted. But, thats very unlikely.

Awesome man.. I need to go and check it out this weekend.

If I can get it down to less than 9 lakhs OTR Bombay will definitely seal the deal.

When you say FIAT is not doing good at all, do you mean sales wise or performance wise?
Active version does not come with central locking at all, so it needs to be fit. Also, on Team-bhp, people have quoted central locking with remote in the range of 8-8.5k

I meant "sales-wise" only. Fiat cars are great piece of engineering IMO. So I wont say anything bad about their cars.

Thansk for sharing info about the Active version not having central locking. Its news to me. All the best for your purchase!

Default GM India to review auto prices in Sept2011

GM India to review auto prices in Sept2011 - head
2:03pm IST 07/09/2011

Quote:
MUMBAI (Reuters) - General Motors Co's India unit will review its prices in September, a senior executive said on Wednesday, joining the ranks of several automakers mulling a price increase in India to offset rising costs of raw materials.
Speaking on the sidelines of an industry conference, Karl Slym, president of GM India, provided no further detail.
Demand for cars in India is expected to slow more than predicted during this fiscal year, an industry body said on Wednesday, as rising interest rates and vehicle costs prompt a pull-back in spending in the world's second-fastest growing auto market after China.
