OTR quoted - ₹ 11,61,979
Corporate discount - ₹ 3000
Exchange bonus - ₹ 7000
Discount on insurance - ₹ 7000
Less Ex. Warranty- ₹ 16999 (Will opt for it at a later date directly till the 6th year/150000kms)

Final OTR - ₹ 11,27,980

Have asked for Scuff plates (non-illuminated), Seat Covers and Ambient floor light to be give free although this is yet to be confirmed.
Congratulations!!.
Good choice on getting the non-illuminated scuff plates. Coming to the ambient floor lights, they only turn on when the doors are opened and stay on for a few seconds post unlocking/locking the car, they are not always on. We had negotiated hard for free accesories and they ended up giving us the ambient floor lights complimentary since my dad mentioned that he's buying it as a gift for someone. They are worth it only if you are getting them for free, not worth paying money for it.

Thank you !

Sorry for going OT.

Honestly this particular variant does not need any sort of extra accessories on top of what we get. But we have the ambient lighting in our Innova and I am sort of used to seeing the floor light up in the evenings when we enter the car. I will get it installed only if given free and also only if it requires a plug and play installation(strictly no wire cutting).

Scuff plates is more for functionality, my Innova does not have them and the door sills have terrible scratches after 11 years of usage.

Other than that I have no intention of getting any form of paint protection (PPF/ Ceramic Coating/Teflon). I am extremely old school that way and I guess an annual detailing session should keep that black paint looking neat.

I had contemplated about buying a new car exchanging my Punto evo 90hp that has run close a Lakh km in ODO. Choices were ES and SCross and paid booking amount towards both. There was a thread in this regard as well to help me in taking a decision. Thanks for all members who gave their input.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/what-...ml#post5001983 (Punto 90HP replacement | Ford EcoSport vs Maruti S-Cross)

After detailed discussion with family decided on:
Our 2015 Punto to remain home as we cannot expect such a well built car at such a price in India anymore. Ignis that is the beater of family will be replaced by another petrol car primarily used by my wife. The replacement will be SCross.

Booking details:
SCross 1.5P Caffeine Brown Zeta
Booking amount 25000.
Delivery: Unknown
Discount: to be finalized based on month of delivery either in March or April of 2021.
Selling procedures of our Ignis delta is going on.

Hello,

Sure, my reasons were:

1. The driving dynamics, steering response, gearbox and handling in Ecosport felt a bit better.
2. Family preferred the Ecosport Sports variant looks and additional safety features(6 airbags). This made me bump up my titanium booking to Ecosport titanium Sports. Got a great deal as one of my colleague also booked though my reference.
3. Waiting period of Nexon was quoted as 17 weeks while Ecosport dealer promised within 4-6 weeks.

Coming to current status, me and my colleague both are planning to cancel our Ecosport Titanium S bookings due to dealer problems. Thankfully BHPian Shanksta mentioned about booklet which made me go back to dealer and insist on same. Hesitantly, sales manager pulled out docket when I mentioned that I will cancel my booking if proper docket number(booking reference) was not provided. Secondly, they had promised delivery within March at time of booking which they are now refusing. Also there were many other factors which led me to believe that dealer was not maintaining transparency.

When I contacted the second dealer here, he seemed transparent enough and also agreed to match the price offered by first with some more accessories thrown in. But, he was not ready to give the agreed OTR price in writing.

I am now looking at other options from other segments in case I finally cancel this booking.

Hope, this was helpful if you are planning to book your car in Kolkata

Just out of curiosity, any reason of selling the Ecosport so soon?

Thank you 07CR.

The new Tucson will be on office lease. It was impractical for us to own both the cars (Parking spot being the primary reason). The EcoSport was in top shape and it was hard to bid goodbye to the vehicle and the depreciation disaster only added to it!

After losing my Fiesta 1.6 sxi petrol in the deluge in Hyderabad last October, I shied away from booking a replacement as i had a Figo tdci 1.4 in the household, apart from a Verna (1.6 diesel owned by my son). And all 4 of us were working from home from last March.

But i could not control the urge, so started TD'ng vehicles with a max OTR of under 15 lakhs. Finally homed in on the diesel Ecosport Sports edition (top end). Booked with an advance of 10k on Feb 28th and was promised delivery by April 10th by Vibrant Ford, Somajiguda, Hyderabad.


Ex showroom - 1149000
Registration- 165460
Insurance with zero dep- 64396(to be negotiated--can be brought down to <40k)
4&5 EW - 16999
Basic Accessories - 4230
9.5% TCS --8618 (can be claimed in tax return)
Total OTR - 14,08703

Negotiated with dealer for free accessories of 10k and will know the insurance quote tomorrow, after they take into account my 50% NCB on the WagonR i'd sold 2 years ago.

To my good luck, another person who had booked the same variant and colour (Canyon Ridge) a month ago was allotted the car a week ago, but his bank loan was getting delayed. I was offered that car instead. I rushed to the stockyard for PDI with my son and found that it ticked all boxes. Per VIN, it was manufactured in Feb 2021.

Confirmed to take delivery tomorrow, after he gives me the final quote for insurance. I've asked for corporate discount too--heard it was a meager 3 k at the time of booking.

Will update tomorrow. Very excited!

Upgrading to SUV, Sold our 10 years old 2011 Wagon R K10, There was no question of selling 6 year old Punto Evo 90 hp Sportz(all black interior version) and when ever I had doubts about keeping it due to service and spare part concerns my wife quickly quashed them all, so Punto stays with us. After much deliberation to choose between Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson, we decided to go with Tucson.

Make : Hyundai
Model : Tucson
Variant : 4WD AT GLS
Fuel : Diesel
Colour : Polar White (PWT)
Booking Date : 7th March, 2021
Expected Delivery Date : 27th March, 2021

Make : Skoda
Model : Superb VIN20 MY21
Variant : L&K
Colour : Candy White
Booking Date : 15th Feb, 2021
Expected Delivery Date : 15th March, 2021
Dealer & City : PPS, Bengaluru

PPS being new, I considered TAFE initially. Manager turned out to be very pushy, not my type. Knew a couple of people at PPS, so gave them a try. PPS, as you know, replaced Vinayak Skoda.

I was in no hurry whatsoever, so paid up INR 50k towards booking and hung back. Was sure they would not like to carry over VIN20 inventory to the next FY, especially since it was blocked for me. I had them chase me & it worked

Insurance - They had quoted INR 1.4L, got it done elsewhere at INR 73k(no change in offerings). Put your foot down and threaten to cancel.

Finance (Which car loan company to go for?) - Punjab & Sind Bank @ 7.1%. They are a hidden gem and are WAY better than the biggies. Their T&C has an interesting clause - Improve your CIBIL by 50 points and we'll reduce your ROI by 0.1%. End to end - 3 business days. Thinking of moving my home loan to them
