Thanks a lot for the heads-up, will take a trip to Gurgaon once the Court holidays begin. Meanwhile, a Dealer has called and informed of one being available in West Delhi.

How was your TD? What are your views for the two?

P.S. Saw 3 Elantras in the past week. Has to be the Blue, the rest I can mistake for the Verna, easily.

The TD went pretty good and satisfactory, ended up booking and buying one. Petrol vs Diesel being a tuff call. Happily saved a fortune; got a diesel sx(O) AT at a brilliant discount; over an available/not available(non existent) Octavia, that I'd booked earlier.
Awaiting delivery soon. Ownership review to follow.

Pretty much know what colours\models which dealer holds and the current available offers/discounts(Year End/Stock Clearance). PM me incase you're up for a purchase anytime soon.

Though am not a big fan of Hyundai, I took 2 TD of the Diesel AT. Liked it a lot although the current car I have is Honda City 3rd Gen Petrol .
My daily run in has increased a lot ( ~ 50kM every day ) and hence thinking of Diesel at the same would be good to have a upgrade on my existing car.
Am a sedate driver, don't drive quick on highways either. I just shiver to think of Skoda AT, might be a good car but the headache to deal on the ASS is too much of a risk.

The best deal so far I have got is 1Lakh ( incl of current car exchange bonus + 4th year warranty free ). Anybody reckon there is chance of a better deal than this please ?

If I buy, it will be Phantom Black, yes I know, maintaining would be a pain, but if maintained well it would look smashing .

From the front, the new verna and elantra look the same !!

On the other hand I wonder, in 5-8 yrs time, electric cars might be gaining mainstream and this car would have zero resale value

1 lac is on the lesser side IMHO. I remember seeing posts where people have mentioned an exchange bonus of 70k or so plus discount to the tune of 80-90k. Considering that you are also getting 4th year warranty, 1.60 to 1.80 lacs of discount would be a good deal.

Was exactly in the same Fix, Diesel vs Petrol, but having a running of about 12-15k Kms Annually, bought the Diesel AT.

Got an exchange bonus of 70k plus 80k discount plus 4th Year warranty.
Booked and dealt with Skoda before going towards the Elantra. Happy eventually, Skoda did a goof up\wasn't happy delivering a car to me, that I moved back to the Elantra. Have a pocket full saved ;on hand and long term; I guess.
Skoda has brilliant cars but reckless dealers(atleast here in NCR), really don't understand why.

Congrats mate !, I took the TD of Petrol AT yesterday, but came out of the car unhappy to be honest. All revs and not much movement of the car in sport mode, there is a little big of lag before it starts accelerating and it tends to hold the gear for eternity before moving a gear up or down. But once it gets going, its good to drive. Lack of paddle shifters means comes out very evident.

Diesel AT is far better than Petrol AT IMHO for this car, good choice, enjoy the miles

What kind of mileage can one expect from the Petrol AT? Would be helpful if the owners can pitch in with their experience.

My ex-manager has petrol AT top end and he kept complaining that he is bleeding in petrol bills. His mileage was ~7kmpl in notorious Bengaluru traffic.

7 months and ~7k kms under the belt; 80% delhi traffic, 20% highways; overall FE by MID 10. Bumper to bumper driving falls to ~8. Sedate city drives ~9.
P.S: Driving style is a bit sedate

Considering buying pre-owned Elantra. Is the car maintenance frugal i.e. not very demanding in maintenance outlays subject to timely adherence to recommended service schedule ?

I got my new Elantra. Enjoying the ride. So far city average is 9 to 10 km per liter, which I think is okay for such big car. However, i must say that to my surprise, when I took it to ORR, and had a full circle, close to 150 km, it said over 15 km per liter - I am like literally shocked

I think, it also depends upon how sedate we drive the machine...

Are you in Bangalore? There are no deals on the Elantra at the moment. I know the Advaith guys well. PM me your number. I will try and get something out of them for you.
