Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Always a delight to be posting in this thread.

Make : Tata
Model : Punch
Variant : Adventure Rhythm Pack
Fuel : Petrol
Transmission : MT
Booking Date : 18th Feb 2023
Colour : Atomic Orange
Expected Delivery Date : 4 to 6 Weeks as per standard answer, but I always got my tatas delivered within 2 weeks
Dealer & City : Kaveri Tata & Trichy
OTR Price : Rs. 8,56,000
Discounts : Rs. 17,000
Effective OTR : Rs. 8,39,000


Usage : 500 to 1000 km a month, chauffeur driven for dad. I might use it only during refills and occasional work trips. So performance took the last seat in list of priorities.

Honestly only 3 priorities :

1. Should be safe & have strong build

2. Should be spacious enough with sufficient underthigh support in back bench

3. Should look good

Replacing my 2021 Celerio. Dad was in a minor accident, where a 2-wheeler rear-ended the celerio and the bumper just tore off. He was so disappointed with the build quality that we decided to let go of the car.

The "I Booked my Car" Thread-20230218_104213.jpg

Choice of colour took us back to 2009, when dad wanted to get the sunset orange of Sumo grande. But then, they told waiting period for that colour was 3 months. We wanted the car sooner and settled for blue. I had the tropical mist (same sky blue colour as in my Sumo Grande) for the Punch. But this orange display car impressed dad.

I have been actively following your Altroz thread, I was actually suprised to know that you own a Celerio. I am glad you decided to replace it with Punch.

Suggestion: Why not get the automatic variant? It's just 60,000 more I guess. The chauffeur might not be available all the time, in case your dad has to go somewhere urgent, there is no hesitation in driving.

Thank you! I always had one or two marutis and one or two tatas since 2000. Celerio was bought in December 2021 as a replacement to our 2016 celerio. The build quality has seemed to go even further down now. This is the first time in 28 years that my garage has no Maruti in it. Kinda feel sad in a way. I have owned 8 marutis so far. Punch will tally the Tata number to 8 now.

The "I Booked my Car" Thread-20230220_142256.jpg

I gave him the same suggestion. But he wanted MT and didn't want to go for AMT. One reason being, the driver will have to drive the Punch as well as the Storme v400. He is worried AT to MT transition on alternate days can be confusing to the driver. And he prefers stick shift over AMT himself.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Hello all,

We actually booked two cars.

Brand: TATA/ HYUNDAI
Model: ALTROZ/ VERNA
Variant: XZ+/ SX(O)
Transmission: MT/ MT
Fuel: 1.5 DIESEL/ 1.5 TGDi
Shade: OPERA BLUE/ FIERY RED
City: Chennai

Reason for booking both Altroz & New Verna:

We were looking for a replacement of our decade-old workhorse Tata Manza. Our running majorly requires the diesel motor. So made a booking at the nearby dealer, with the condition of punching the order only when Tata launch it with the appropriate features which was shown at the auto expo'23. Why replacing a sedan with a hatchback? I got you, will explain everything after owning one. Just out of curiosity, after seeing the design sketches of the New Verna, we booked that one too right away(New car bug hits me high, right?). Why Verna then? If Tata decides to prolong the relevant updates to ALTROZ, then thought of switching to the VERNA.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

I booked Kia Carens Smartstream G1.4T-GDI 6MT Luxury 7 Sparkling Silver on August 20, 2022. Delivery in 18-19 weeks was indicated by Kia. Dealer was Lohia Noida Sec 63.

But now, it is almost 30 weeks yet neither the car has been delivered nor any information from Kia has come about delivery date. I have been sending WA msgs/emails, visiting dealer showroom, sending DM on twitter to Kia but no info on delivery is forthcoming.

I am in a fix. Wanted to know if others have also faced similar issues with Kia and wrt Carens delivery?

In anticipation of Carens delivery in Dec '22, I sold off my XUV 500 Diesel in Dec '22 before expiry of 10 years limit imposed on diesel cars BS III in the NCR region.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

A little late in posting!

So, I booked my Mahindra XUV300 W8(O) Turbosport on Dec 18th 2022, at India Garage, Palace Cross, Bangalore. Although the vehicle was available for delivery in a couple of weeks, I had to wait for the auspicious date till after Sankranthi.

I was looking to replace my age old Ikon 1.6 and my clear requirement was that the car I'd buy should drive like that. In short, the engine in this Turbosport variant blew my mind. I picked the car up on 23-Jan-23.

Make : Mahindra
Model : XUV300 Turbosport
Trim : W8(O)
Colour : Pearl White
Fuel : Petrol
Transmission : 6S manual
Engine : 3 cylinder 1.2lt T-GDI
Torque : 230Nm (Momentary overboost upto 250Nm ) @1800 RPM onwards
Power : 128 BHP @ 5000 RPM
Dealer : India Garage, Bangalore
Accessories: Parcel tray (correct), mud-flaps
On road price : 15.1 lac

I'll write more about the pros and cons in a review section maybe.

Things have started moving much faster than expected. With prices being announced today, the dealer has informed that they have a white XZA+ (O) dispatched to them today. Car expected to arrive at the dealer yard late next week. If PDI goes well, it should be part of the garage in early March.

OTR Price- 30,01,544 (with extended warranty)

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

I have booked my NexonEV Prime XZ+. I got a 2022 model with 60K discount. Total OTR is around 15.55L excluding insurance.

Since the car was already in stock it got delivered within 5 days.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Make : Hyundai
Model : Aura
Variant : SX+ AMT
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date :01 March 2023
Color : Aqua Teal/Starry Night (Whichever is allotted earlier)
Expected Delivery Date : 6 Weeks (SA says generally Starry Night and Aqua Teal colours are fast moving so fingers crossed)
Dealer & City : Trident Hyundai Whitefield, Bangalore
Freebies : Negotiated a 15k discount on top of ongoing 10k cash offer. Insurance from showroom was around 50k and I showed them 2 quotes for 30k with more bells and whistles. I asked them nicely to try and match the market quote as much as possible.

Took a short test drive few days back and a slightly longer 2 hour drive in bumper to bumper traffic today.

We are getting a sub-4 meter car, refined 1.2L engine + AMT, decent showroom experience, un-matched interiors and ride quality for overall budget of 10lakhs OTR.

Not super helpful, but here's how it worked for me. We had booked Kia Carens Diesel Auto on March 30th 2022 and got delivery on December 30th 2022. Mainly because I insisted on the original blue color I booked. They had offered white and black but I held firm. It also helped that I didn't really "need" the car or have an urgency.

So there you go, the record for the longest waited Carens is probably me. A whole 9 months.
