Default Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

After a long contemplation, multiple test drives, hour-long discussion with family, between 3 very different cars (Tiago JTP, Freestyle 1.2, Ecosport 1.5P), went ahead and made the booking

Make: Ford
Model: EcoSport 1.5
Variant: Trend
Fuel: Petrol
Colour: Race Red
On-road price: 10.30L (including 3YR TP+1YR OD and Zero Dep)
Discount: 12k Insurance + 4k Accessories + 5k corporate
Booking date: 12th August 2019
Expected Delivery Date: 4-6 weeks
Dealer: Cauvery Ford (Bangalore)

This is going to be the first car I personally own (registered to my name).

I shopped around with multiple dealers, but the rough offer was same everywhere. They had some deals on old stock, but since I plan to keep the car for a long time, I didn't want to compromise on my preferences.

Booked a new car on Saturday, 10th August 2019.

Make : Škoda
Model : Octavia
Variant : 1.8 TSI AT Laurin & Klement
Fuel Type : Petrol
Booking Date : 10th August 2019
Color : Candy White
Expected Delivery Date : 28th August 2019
Dealer & City : Malayalam Skoda, Trivandrum
Ex-Showroom : Rs 23,59,599
OTR : Rs 29,34,048, original quoted OTR was Rs 30.55L without any discounts.

Freebies : Essential kit.

Discounts : A loyalty bonus of 50K, a cash discount of 50K, and a minor reduction in the insurance cost.

We have also opted for extended warranty for 5th and 6th year which costs about Rs 55k and this is also included in the OTR amount.

The car replaces our 2012 Vento TDi that has done 70K KMs. We also have 50% NCB on the Vento, which will be moved to the Octavia. The Vento is already sold, but still with me as a good friend is buying the car from me. I will be handing over the car to him by the end of this week :(

I believe the total reduction in price would be to the tune of about Rs 1.5L

Finally, my first post (for India) in this thread. The purchase is for my parents. The choice was between Tigor JTP/Skoda Rapid (Rider special)/Elite I20 Asta(O)/Baleno (Glanza) Alpha. Due to bad sales experience at Tata and Skoda, only Hyundai and Nexa were in contention but was blown away by the sales experience with Honda. Hence, the Jazz got selected out of nowhere and I realized that I had not even considered this wonderful no-nonsense practical car.

Make : Honda
Model : Jazz
Variant : VX MT
Fuel Type : Petrol
Booking Date : 10th August 2019
Color : Golden Brown Metallic
Expected Delivery Date : 15th September 2019
Dealer & City : Capital Honda, Chennai
Ex-Showroom : Rs 7,89,000
OTR : Rs 8,70,00 original quoted OTR was Rs 9.16L without any discounts.

Freebies : Essential kit, Insurance, Mud flaps, Floor mats

Discounts : Cash discount of 30K, Corporate Bonus 10K

Update:

Switched my booking out for Titanium variant, as it is readily available in Race Red/Petrol combo.

The car is of May 2019 manufacture, so the feature set should be identical to the current produce.

Definitely got a chuckle out of me. Even though no freebies, the discounts seem to be decent. Congrats on your new car!!

Hey, firstly I would like to congratulate you on booking of your new car. Secondly, I would like to ask you if the Ford Mahindra JV has affected your decision of buying an ecosport in any way? Have you considered the affects, pros and cons of this JV on you as a consumer? Actually my uncle is on the same boat as yours and booked an ecosport a week back and expecting the car to be delivered within a week or so but this news coming up made him think again that whether he should continue with the deal or look out for something different. Your inputs would be very helpful.

Thanks and Regards
Aakarsh

Months of cross-shopping between the segments and we finally chose "The Worthy" replacement to our Bruno (a 2010 Ford Figo 1.4L TDCI). Here are some more details of the car we've booked :

Make : Volkswagen
Model : Polo
Variant : GT TSI Facelift
Colour : Candy White
Actual OTR : Rs.11.8 Lacs
OTR after discounts : Rs.11.35 Lacs
Freebies : Floor mats, mudflaps, car cover, Teflon coating (decided not to go for it), Zero depriciation add-on on insurance worth 8000 bucks
Expected Delivery Date : October 9th 2019 or earlier

Going to see the car today in flesh (for the PDI). Super excited about the first German in our family and I hope the TSI makes me smile everytime I take the wheel over (still having a tough time to get to reality after a very long Test Drive day before yesterday).
