Hi OSS,

Thanks, the ex-showroom price of Fiesta 1.4 D SXi in Pune is Rs. 821541/- with octroi and Rs. 807838/- octroi less (this is applicable if you have address beyond octroi limit).

The on road price within octroi limit of two different dealers is Rs. 912000/- and 914626/-, this is due to difference in calculation of Insurance Premium.

Discounts : Insurance = Rs. 23706/- and 3rd year warranty around Rs. 7000/-

Freebies : worth around Rs. 15000/-

Discount and Freebies : around Rs. 45000/-

Hope I answered your queries

Is the on road price of Jazz just Rs. 6.65 lakhs only. I guess the price is much more than this. Is it a typo?

I understand SXI is fully loaded but here is what my opinion -
Spoiler - I think you might be going for with LED and that costs nearly 2.5K whereas 1.6S spoiler costs 7 - 8K
Sun film - This costs nearly 2K and if you going for 3M then it will be costly.
Sport Pedal - 2.25K this fine as you get ford brand.
Under Body coating - This is good but can you provide how much this cost?
Mud flap/Floor mat/Boot mat - These are basic thing which all dealers provide even if we don't ask for it.
Insurance Free - This is some which Ford offering (I agree partially dealer contribution is their) so we can straight away ask dealer what you giving :deadhorse


3 year warranty is not an offer but it included in price. (Though its discounted but its same with all dealers)

The actual deal is what Ashish got i.e. 4th year warranty!

So here you need to add to find what accessories you got free -
  • Spoiler
  • Underbody coat
  • Sports Pedal
  • Sunfilm

At last how much price the dealer reduced from on road cost ? (Deduct : insurance + corporate discount)

Hey you didn't mentioned anything about corporate discount??

@ Kumar, thanks for enlightening.

Today morning I visited Ford Dealer and spoke specifically about discount and freebies again.

Here we go,

Standard Discount : Free Insurance + 3rd year warranty + mud flap, mats etc (I am not counting as discount, as other dealers offering the same)

Freebies :

Sporty Pedal
Under Body Coating
Waxoyl Coating
Sun Film for Windows - Garware
Sun Film for Windshield - 3 M (especially for me, you know, I know the person from Dealer)
Interior and Engine Coating - He told me it makes protective layer and avoid dust attraction ( I don't know how it helps, but I agreed)

I drop the spoiler (I don't want to spoil :uncontrol sedan - just kidding)

I am happy Ashish got the 4th year extended warranty and congrats to him, but it is not a big cost - Rs. 6700/- only.

Corporate Discount - Nope, I am PhD and running my own business.

I am happy with deal and waiting for 'Go Fida' car :).

@Rajesh: You got good deal specially about Waxoyl and engine coating!
I also don't know much about automobiles but by reading threads people like us can atleast understand that this is something which needs to be done so we can throw these heavy words in front of dealer and they think we know all technical stuff about automobile :D

I read in one of thread and if am not wrong then Vnabhi I believe he mentioned that Waxoyl is good and one of BHPian get it done internally+externally+underbody.

If you come to know more about engine coating stuff then do post about it including how much it costs!

Once again Congrats & happy waiting :thumbs up

Booked I20 Asta CRDI
 
Make :Hyundai
Model : I20
Variant : asta
Fuel : Diesel
Booking Date : 14th August
Color : Silver
Expected Delivery Date : 2nd September
Dealer & City : Advaith Hyundai
Freebies : No Freebies:mad:
On-road Price: 7,99,000

Hi all,
I have booked the I20 crdi asta from Advaith Hyundai, Bangalore. This car will be basically used by my dad(He will be a backseat driver). He was particular that he wanted a diesel and a hatchback. So we basically had to choose from Ritz, swift, Punto, Vista and the i20. The palio and fabia were not considered at all, fabia due to the horrendous service and palio as it was dated.
The Marutis were eliminated due to the cramped seating at the rear. My dad is pretty tall (6' 3) and he was not happy with the space though he was very happy with the pricing.
He was very happy with the Vista. He really didn't care about it being branded a "taxi" by all my relatives. But my mom wasn't too happy with its interior quality and so after a lot of discussion between them they decided to test drive the punto and i20 and then decide.

The punto was very good but again dad didn't like the rear space(Mom & wife loved the exterior design). I think its due to the dashboard design where the center console protrudes out a bit and messes with the knee. So I had to push the driver seat back to find a comfortable postion and and dad felt cramped. Also, he was very vary of fiat's service. We have had a tough time with sundaram motors when we owned the padmini 1.37D and 118 NE 1.38D. Though its tata service now,(dad was ready to buy the vista) the bitter past had left a sour taste.
So it was down to I20. The rear space was good and the ride was ok (punto was definitely better). But the pricing shocked my dad. He was like I can buy a diesel sedan at this price(old school thought). He didn't think much about the features. Finally after debating it for a while we decided to book the I20. I got a shock when the dealer said the waiting period was 40 working days. After much haggling, I paid the corporate sales guy 5K as booking amount and told him that if I didn't get the car in 3 weeks I was going to cancel the booking and buy a Punto. Punto would be delivered in a week max as the manager at Prerana Motors was a friend of my dad.
Got a call on thursday(27th) saying a silver I20 was despatched from the factory and if I wanted he could register that. I applied for lease with the company I work for and I will be taking delivery on the 2nd or the 4th. I will definitely be doing a pre PDI before registering the car. I don't want any surprises before taking delivery.

Also getting the insurance done from outside as I got a quote of 12.5K from Bajaj Allianz (dealer quoted 23K). So that saved me about 10K and the on road price is 799K.
The decision was totally left to dad and mom. Primary needs as I stated was rear space, good ride and good interiors(for mom). If I were to make the decision, I would have bought the Punto. There is something with the car that tugs the heart. Well, next year wifey needs a car and the next car is going to a white/red punto emotion pack.

@ Shivasuma, congrats for booking I20 CRDi, I have test driven the car and was quite happy with performance. My requirement was sedan else I would have gone for I20 CRDi or Punto.

@ Kumar, thanks buddy - credit goes to you, you enlightened me about discount and freebies.

Dealer shared the cost of Waxoyl and Engine coating as follow :

Waxoyl Coating : Rs. 8000/-

Interior and Engine Coating : Rs. 2500/- (what material they use I don't know, but after yesterday visit I have full confidence on them)
