Well; in theory; the Punto should be cheaper in Delhi. You know; buying a car in Delhi is extremely cheap- as compared to buying the very same car; say in Bangalore.

But; turns out the 90HP Punto in Pune is cheaper than the Punto 75 in Delhi!

How is it so?

Well- I can only attribute the following :

A] The Punto is made in Poona.

B] The relationship you have with the salesman. I've been pestering him for over six months to get a good deal; you know.

If I do end up buying; it'll be in October-November timeframe. You know; even more discounts.

But why am I not buying the Punto now itself?

It so happens that a dear friend has put up his W211 for sale. E200 Kompressor.

An update: Sad one I feel,

Make : Maruti

Model : New Alto K10

Variant : VXi AMT

Booking Date : 13th April, 2015

Color : Fire Brick Red

Expected Delivery Date : Mid-May, 2015
Still awaiting information regarding the car and its tentative delivery dates.

Same problem is with the colour choice. Brick red, cerulean blue and Orange are the least booked colours for the Alto as the major demand is for Silver, White and Grey. Due to this all the dealers in Hyderabad are ordering only for Silver, white and Grey.

We have contacted two more dealers to help us source the Brick red. The next latest lot of cars to be received in Hyderabad is in last week of May. In that lot if there is a brick red that will be delivered to us else we have to settle between White or Silver.

Do give a complain to any of the regional offices of Maruti or at Anytime Maruti.
While purchasing Swift for Mom, we were having difficulties in getting a ZXi, One mail to Maruti did the trick and our car came within a week to the dealer stockyard.

I have written to them already and have spoken to a guy from their head office too.

They are trying to get me the car by this month end and of my colour choice preference.

They are silent as to why this delay for the K10 in Red/Blue/Orange. May be the demand here is low for these colours hence shipments are low too to avoid dead inventory.

Congratulations sir BTW.

No I guess. Many have booked but not put an official booking entry in this thread.

I have booked it already and still in dilemma between K10 AMT and Nano AMT.

Awaiting your Nano's ownership report!

What is the price difference between them? They are very different cars, only thing common is AMT.
Nano is high on practicality, space, ease of sitting and driving, lower running costs.
K10 is fun to drive, power, refinement, better built quality.
All these qualities are exclusive to them, which means each one of it is absent from the other. Its your choice what you want from your car.

Alto K10 - 4.9L
Nano - 3.8L.

Almost a lac difference but the overall feel and ownership experience COULD be better with the Alto.

I am looking for a city car for my wife who currently drives an Alto LXi (2009 model). Though she doesn't like the Nano even a bit since it's launch, I'm considering it ONLY because of the AMT.
