Hi All,

Had gone to book the nexon today but came back without booking.
Reason: discounts.
I was offered nexon xz+ diesel for 11,30,000 without insurance. Total discount offered was 22k cash, waving off logistics charge, mud flaps and floor mat that’s it. I felt this was low.
Any suggestions on what discount I can bargain for.
I have asked for extended warranty to be included but they have not budged yet.
I am planning to buy the car with upfront payment. Does it make sense to take auto loan

Also any suggestion on good Tata motor dealers in Bangalore. I am currently in negotiations with Concorde motors dairy circle. Had taken test drive from kht but wife did not like the Domlur outlet

You could try Prerana Motors, Lalbhagh road. Buying experience was really good and their service centre in peenya is pretty decent as well.

Congrats! What's the value of the discounts that you were able to negotiate?

25K cash discount, waiver of logistics charge, Corner bumper protector and essential kit, That's all. I was hoping they will include the extended warranty but no dealer budged.

Moreover, I am sure you will have a comfortable riding and driving experience too. Nexon's looks are superior to Ecosports. I am an owner of Nexon XZA+ (AMT petrol) and am quite enjoying this 5 star safety rated car. I had purchased the same after a through survey carried out in Delhi. XZ+ variant has Isofix child sheet mount at the rear which would be safe for your child. The rear sheet has good cushioning couple with comfortable inclination to enjoy your long journey. This are my personal views. Thanks

That's not a bad deal. The 25k is where the real deal is. The logistic charges are illegal, the bumber protector and essential kit (floormats and mudflaps, right?) could anyways have been purchased from outside. The Nexon being a good seller, it would have been very surprising if you would have managed to get an extended warranty added. Thanks again! We'll be likely buying a Nexon soon and this helps.

Autocar does a comparison review of the top selling sub-compact SUVs (diesel manual variants only).

Guys, need quick help. I got a message from Concorde motors that they have a color and variant of choice at their other dealership. As per the VIN the car is Jan 2019 model.

1.Is it safe to go.
2. Apart from the usual, KM on ODO anything specific I should look out for to ensure they don't provide me a test drive vehicle

I asked them why this hasn't been sold since January 2019 they have not provided any answers
Regards,
Aditya Niyogi

I hope you are aware of the latest news articles on auto mag forums which state that Nexon is carrying discounts of RS 50,000. Please check with your dealer who I understand has not offered any big discounts.

The article is misleading. The discounts are on 2018 model. 18K standard discount and free B2B insurance.

2019 model they are not giving any discount. Had to fight hard with 3 dealers to get discount which finally I had to let go for color and variant of choice for immediate delivery.

TL;DR - I voted for Nexon but bought Ford Ecosport

Already having a Bolero, Scorpio and XUV5OO in the garage, we needed another vehicle for my sister which she can easily drive.
With a budget of 10 lakh in mind, I was looking for a sophisticated vehicle with abilities to run off road too. The choices were TATA Nexon, Ford Ecosport, Hyundai Venue, Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet. The running will be around 1800 KMs per month.

The cars which were considered are as follows:-

TATA Nexon XMA Petrol (9.35 on road)

Ford Ecosport Ė Ambiente Diesel (10 lakh on road)

Hyundai Venue - Rejected as E variant is simply too barebones.

Vitara Brezza - Rejected as another Brezza in the town so no.

Kia Sonet - God know when this will be available with dealers. Dealer himself was clueless.

So the first choice was TATA Nexon XMA, liked the vehicle and everything. Sadly, BS6 model test drive vehicle wasnít available with local dealer in Katni. Thus drove to another to test drive BS6 version.
The petrol engine was average but super lethargic in City and Eco mode.
We changed our mind and switched to Diesel Automatic but BS6 Diesel Automatic is almost 2 lacs expensive than petrol counterpart.
The dealer response was cold too. No discounts, no asking for Tea & Coffee. Buy it or leave it attitude. Reminded me of old days when I was at TATA to buy Safari and Hexa. Nothing much has changed.

Ford Ecosport
Next destination was Ford. Right from the attitude of staff to the Fordís product and service promise, everything was matching with our expectations plus it was Diesel. Cherry on the top was that it was immediately available for the delivery.

After few considerations, we decided to go with TATA Nexon XMA (Petrol) but wanted to have conversation with dealer. Sadly managerís phone was switched off (It was Sunday). Dropped him a WA message. Checked in the evening again, again he didnít pick up the phone. Checked WA and saw that message had the blue tick. Wrote a strong message to sales manager about his I donít give a damn attitude. Got call back immediately but he was not ready to reduce a single rupee, the delivery time was 25 days. Despite all this we called him again to know the booking process and he cut the call. This was the last nail in the coffin. We decided to move ahead with Ford Ambient Diesel.

I will share the pics once vehicle is delivered.

I don't know about discounts - who gives discounts on a new and well selling model of car?

Even Maruti dealers will offer you soft drinks let alone coffee, deep discounts, whatever to sell any of their existing range of cars - but if there's a hot selling new car they introduce with high booking times .. well, I doubt you'll get any discount even if you get a cup of coffee.

I should not have mentioned it.

The word tea / coffee was used as metaphor for relationship building with customer. Being an informed buyer, my decision is not deinetely based on tea or the amount of milk in the tea.

What exactly I am trying to say is if a dealer is not hungry and enthusiastic in sales, the service experience is not going to be better too.

I've personally experienced this during ownership of Safari but that's 8 years ago. I thought things must have changed, sadly no.

Voted for the Ecosport. Recently purchased a pre owned S Diesel, and couldn't be happier with my choice.

+
Still looks great and has the most road presence
Solid build quality
Segment best handling and high speed manners
The best touchscreen unit in the segment
Loaded to the gills with equipment
Many safety features as well
Ford's ASS, the second service costed a measly 5.9K (Tire rotation, wheel balancing and alignment included).

-
Space (shoulder room) is a constraint for 5 full size adults. Superb though for 4 adults.
