This is an awesome news. I'm off to maruti dealer this saturday to verify for bangalore. I'm actively hunting for AT sedan, and had shortlisted elantra and Laura.
Kizashi seems a mouth watering proposition. It has better road presence and a rare gem. Mileage isn't an issue since the engine is stonker.
Thanks to all for updating this tread with this info.

Click on that emailer, it asks for contact details. Also there are contact numbers of Maruti employees in this emailer. Do call them and also let us know.

Noticed this in the paper today here in Goa.

Kizashi Offer

Funny part is, in the advertisement, pictures of Gear Shifter, Front Seats, Rear Seats, Dashboard are shown.

What are they advertising these as? Major features of this car?

So basically they are saying "Come and buy this car..!! It has a dedicated gear shifter, places for you to sit so that you don't need to travel in buses and trains, and it even has a dashboard that you can show off..!! At this price, you won't find such features in any other car..!!"

The pictures are too small to serve the purpose of showing the customer how much premium the look and feel is..

^^^I have emailed Chowgule with the following queries :
1) Is this for the MT or AT version ?
2) Are these cars 2012 model or 2011 model ?
3) Can you give me the breakup for on-road price : ie tax + insurance + ex-showroom price ?
4) Which colors do you have ?
5) What is the delivery period ?

@Rammee, could you please post here the breakup of the deal offered to you ? I need the ex-showroom + tax + insurance figures.

I did that, but the resulting link gets blocked as a security threat.

So, now the offer is advertised in Goa too. So possibly will come to TN/Kerala too. BTW is this deal only for 2011 made cars ? If so, when we register the car, will it be registered as 2011 ? Or as 2012 ?

Basically, he offered a flat 5L discount on the road price for a 2011 November MT model. The regular on-road price is 21.xxL and he said I can give 5L discount on that. I did not press further as I was more interested in an AT model.

My deets from Vitesse Andheri Mumbai (got callback from Worli as well, in less than 24 hours!)
1) MT
2) 2011 manufactured
3) Didnt ask breakup but road tax is 20% not 9% :(
4) All 3 - silver/grey, white, black
5) Ready stock but based on finance and 5 days for shipment adds up to about 20 days, upfront payment will be under 2 weeks time.

Coincidentally, accompanyed a Kizashi for a fair amount of time yesterday. While it looks powerful and has presence, don't think it has any major styling cachet like say a Superb, Fluence, Vento or a Cruze.

There was a very bad-tempered looking owner at the wheel - must have heard of the 5 lakh discount :-)

Thanks, Rammee. That does not sound like a good deal for a 2011 car. Esp. when you compare with the Goa offer below on new (2012) cars.

The Goa folks were quick in responding and the gist is given below. Basically they are saying they have new (not 2011 model) MT cars for a Goa onroad of 13lakhs.
Petrol prices be damned - a 0-100 of 7.8secs will more than make up. And couple this with the low petrol prices in Goa, it is a double-dhamaka offer.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Suzuki kizashi is available at a special festive Offer from Chowgule Industries Pvt Ltd, Goa at a BIG BANG offer price of Rs 11.51 only for a Manual Transmission(MT). As enquired by you the on Road price of vehicle with break up details is as follows:

MODEL COST OF CAR ROAD TAX INSURANCE ON ROAD
Kizashi MT 1151106 118487 44193 1313786

All Choice of Colours are currently available for your purchase:1. Snow White Pearl, 2.Super Black Pearl, 3.Premium Metallic Silver. All colours are currently in Stock.

It may be noted that there is a excellant demand for the vehicle in lieu of the Special Offer festive launch hence stock is subject to change. Delivery period is immediate as per stock availability.

It may be noted that all vehicles are new manufactures from our Suzuki Stable.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

@itwasntme, if I had bought a Kizashi for ~20L and then I hear of a 5L discount, I would also be pretty ill-tempered.

The only Maruti-Suzuki worth buying other than the Vitara. Since it is imported we are sure that there hasn't been any compromises made, be it build or safety. And it is one hell of a machine.

I am paying a visit to the showroom this weekend. For easy haggling, I am carrying a printout of the mailer. Hope they have the AT on offer too.

The dealerships appear to be well informed of this offer , no harm in carrying a print out but i dont think you would face any problems even if you dont. The AT is on offer as well , at least in Delhi and works out to about 1 Lac or so more than the MT

Wow! I just hope so much interest across India after the discount offer finally convinces the management to properly launch the Kizashi in India (read saner pricing and a diesel heart).

the Kizashi should now easily cross 100#s in sales per month. And if Maruti get more sensible, then it could sell even more. It's now direct competition to the TSI and that too a much more hassle free brand than the manufacturers of TSI.

Any idea if this offer is available in Hyderabad? This makes the Kizashi a real good option for someone looking to by a car in the D1 segment. The availability of spare parts is a concern though. Is Suzuki abandoning the Kizashi project or are they planning to continue selling it in Asia?
