Thanks, my friend.

Even I feel so. It has a more compact footprint than the XUV, hence should be a better in-city mover. Plus it has a petrol option, and FE was never a deal-breaker for me.

I'm waiting for this and S-Cross/A-Cross to be launched before I make my upgrade.

My two previous bookings (Mobilio-Not worth the price & Zest-My preference for a SUV) turned into cancellations. So I'll hold onto this one till it is launched. And hopefully might get good discounts on Duster.

You got the parking space sorted out considering this is replacing Eon in your family?
Thanks, mrbaddy.

The Duster top variant is available off-the-shelf with 1 lac cash discount already. I was offered the same when I was shopping around a few weeks back. But in that OTR price range, the XUV W4 makes a strong, tempting case for itself.

No problems regarding parking space. We have enough for 4 cars in our garage/courtyard.

RavenAvi sir, Congratulations for the booking!!! I am slightly skeptical about the pricing of 11 L OTR for top end model. I mean, is your friend very confident about the pricing?? Even 50k extra looks pretty good for this vehicle, provided it comes well loaded like the overseas model.

Thanks, Vigkey.

He did mention that the SX should be in the 11-11.25L OTR ballpark, with an SX(O) (highly likely to be introduced as well) priced at around 12L OTR. He was skeptical about some features on the international model making it to the Indian one - such as sunroof, VSM, Hill hold, etc. Hence the lower pricing.

My booking number is #4. All bookings before me are for the White shade and diesel option, according to him. Mine is the first Silver, and first petrol. Dealer dispatches will start by mid-July, with an end-July launching + immediate deliveries.

I feel the pricing is really wonderful (if true) for a mini-SUV which is greater than 4m length. The price is in the range of Verna and City. I expected it to be priced more than the sedans by 1-1.5 L.

I will definitely wait to see this car before I buy anything else. Have to see if iX25 will be as spacious as A-Cross and if A-Cross will have as much quality as iX25. I will also have to compare the VFM proposition with the new Jazz and then make a decision. Looks like I have a lot of math to do

Going by what you say, you will be the first to own a petrol iX25 in your state, provided you choose to go ahead with the booking after seeing the car. That is seriously awesome RavenAvi! Congrats!!!

Thank you.

Good if there is an option if fully loaded Diesel car at a cheaper price point for the masses.

I guess prices would be touch 7L for ZDi (O) variant.

Can't imagine paying 7 lakhs to buy a Celerio Diesel, considering the last Ford crossover we bought 2years ago was for lless than a couple of lakhs more. (7 lakhs OTR Celerio - Ridiculous!)

How the time flies.
