Booked a new car on Saturday, 21st December, 2020.

Make : Tata
Model : Tiago
Variant : 1.2 Revotron XZ+ Single Tone
Fuel Type : Petrol
Booking Date : 21st December 2020
Color : Daytona Grey (Single Tone)
Expected Delivery Date : 70 - 90 days from the date of booking, irrespective of colour / variant
Dealer & City : Trivandrum Motors, Trivandrum
Ex-Showroom : Rs 6,13,000
OTR : Rs 7,11,780 (includes extended warranty till the 5th year, and AMC charges for the 1st year).

Freebies : Essential kit.

Discounts : A cash discount of 15K, corporate discount of 3K.

We might consider opting for the 5 year Gold AMC which costs ~33K.

The car replaces our April 2014 Alto 800 VXi that has done only 23.5K KMs since new. However, we are upgrading since we want a safer and more spacious car for use within the city.

The NCB available on the Alto's insurance will also be moved to the Tiago before it gets registered. The Alto is being exchanged at Tata Motors Assured, since we do not want any hassles with regards to ownership change that we might have to encounter if we sell to an individual. Over and above the price they will give for the Alto, there is also an exchange bonus of 15K which I have currently not reduced from the OTR price.

Got the delivery on the 22nd and did a delhi-agra-delhi journey via Yamuna expressway. Happy to answer any queries and looking forward to connect with fellow superb owners.

Thanks. Sure will try to publish as soon as possible. I'm driving with a temporary number right now, so not taking it any further than the city limits. Once I get the permanent one, will go some distance to ascertain overall driving experience.

So far I have driven around the city about 50 odd Kms only. Just making myself acclimatized with the auto transmission. Initial observations- certainly not very sporty with instant push (I am not using S mode), but no slouch either. Picks up speeds with slight hesitation of about half a second, with speed following a bit behind the RPM increase initially. Any lag is well compensated by linear acceleration in traffic conditions and you can easily zip past other "normally" driven cars. Not bothersome in city driving at all.

Purely due to Aesthetics.
Be it in terms of the interiors or exteriors, Seltos excels! Ot had that "Wow" factor which is missing in Creta. The interiors too even though of good quality felt generic in Creta. Another reason being, I got the Seltos IVT for much cheaper.

Yes indeed brother! Even paying the booking amount gave me butterflies!

Since it is more of a very long term dream for me rather than a need or an item of prestige; to explore India on our very own four wheeled vehicle and also to have the one which makes me look at it back again after I've parked it. Also, had to avoid the temptation of buying any other car (used or entry level) just for the sake of owning one for last couple of years.

Must say, it is worth the wait. Also, the lesser number of Ignis' on road makes it even more unique and special and I can't get enough of its looks (yes, even the angry eyed rear!) Enjoying the time with it.

Thank you so much for your wishes!

I know it's the "wrong" time to buy a new car with covid and all that, but sometimes the heart rules over the head. Finally pulled the trigger on the Mini Cooper. I had commented on Quickdraw's post about a year ago that failing any game-changing small hatch that can change my mind about the Mini, I would most likely book one, well the deed is done!


Make : Mini
Model : JCW
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : 15th Dec, 2020
Color : Rebel Green
Expected Delivery Date : 31st Dec 2020
Dealer & City : EVM Autokraft, Kochi
Freebies : 3rd year extended warranty and Basic service pack (which I upgraded to Basic Plus by paying the diff)
