Dealer: Karma Hyundai Noida.
Expected Delivery:10th March 2024

Car considered, in order.
1. Tata Punch Creative AMT DT - rejected due to TATA QC and ASS.
2. Hyundai Exter SX (O) AMT - Looks, low seating and bad experience with Fortune Hyundai dealership.
3. Nissan Magnite XV Premium CVT - Vibrations, vibrations and vibrations. Also, fit and finish was not that good, interior looked a bit cheap but CVT was good, and was getting a handsome discount.
4. Honda Amaze - Was looking dated and also, because of the low seating but the CVT was good.
5. Kia Sonet - All good with KIA, but Venue felt better to drive and easy to handle in traffic.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Today booked our next car for my wife (And me ).

In the past week we have taken two TDs, one of which was almost 2.5 hrs.

VW Tiguan, in Nightshade Blue. Informed dealer that I will take a car only till Dec 2023 manufactured not any older.

Booking amount INR 25,000/- (refundable). Final amount will be paid after PDI during mid-April, as we shall be out on our vacation.
Our negotiated price will be locked till our April delivery. (One can squeeze more discounts if it is a instant purchase)

The car will be delivered at Gurugram with temporary no plate, and will be registered at Kolkata (our home town).
Dealer at Gurugram will be assisting in registration process at Kolkata with their known agent.

Dealer: VW Gurugram-Sec 62. Golf Course Road extn.
Ex-Showroom Price: 35,16,900/-
Discount: 5,00,000/-
Ex showroom after discount: 30,16,900/-
TCS 1%: 30,169/-
Insurance (Go Digit with all add-ons): 89,000/-
Temp. Registration: 2000/-
Free Service for 4 years: Free (given by VW India)
Added extended warranty (4+2): 79,059/-
Fastag: 500/-
Shall be adding accessories at later date.

Total: 32,17,628/- with temporary registration at Haryana.

Approx INR 3,51,000/- is charge for permanent registration at Kolkata.

P.S.: Will be shifting back to Kolkata after a year. VW Kolkata is not able to offer sufficient discounts on this out going model, hence taking this pain of purchase in Gurugram & registering in Kolkata.

Re: The "I Booked my Car" Thread

Finally, after a lot of deliberations and going through almost all the available crossovers in the market, went ahead and booked the most underrated of them all - MG Astor 1.3 Turbo.
What turned the decision in MG's favor was the outright quality and premium feel that I got. The quality of materials used felt premium and I was blown away with the red interiors. Test drove the CVT as Turbo was not available and found it adequate. I hope the Turbo would be engaging to drive though. The car feels tight and safe at the same time. With class leading features and comfortable front seats, I could not resist myself from booking one. I hope I made a right choice

Make: MG
Model: Astor
Variant: Savvy 1.3 Turbo
Gearbox: Automatic
Color: Candy white/Black
Dealer: MG flagship, Gurgaon
Booking amount: 21k
Discount: 75000 incl. exchange bonus.
Booking Date: March 23, 2024
Accessories: 3D mats and scuff plates (paid)
Delivery: 3 weeks

MY 2024 comes with - wireless charging, wireless AA and Apple carplay, ventilated seats and auto IRVM, the prices have been reduced by ~80k. I was offered a 2023 MY without these features for a meagre ~1L discount.
