Make : Nissan
Model : Micra
Variant : XE (but might upgrade to XL or XV depending on price)
Fuel : Petrol
Booking Date : Sometime in May
Color : Brick Red
Expected Delivery Date : I am still clueless on this one. The commercial launch is scheduled for 15th and the dealer said car will be delivered by July end.
Dealer & City : Oxford Nissan, Pune
Freebies : Let Nissan get the car out first, freebies seem like a distant dream
Other details :
The sales guy said that all details (exact on road price, colors display, test drive appointments, commencement of deliveries) would be available on 15th July. Test drive will be given first to those who have booked the car, aam junta will have to wait for a while. Again its not like those who have booked the car will get a test drive whenever they want, the sales guy told me that they will give an appointment!
However in the rare case that I don't like the car, I have kept the option of a Ritz VXI or a Punto 1.2 Active open.
So waiting until 15th July for the commercial launch of the MICRA. The wait has become unbearable now, just counting the days till 15th July, someone save me please. please:
And the Ritz and Punto are no. 2 and no. 3 on my list. If i don't like the Micra then I will cancel my Micra booking and consider these two.

Expected Delivery Date :July end/August 1st week
Dealer & City : Lakshmi Nissan, Pune

Other details :
I am exactly in the same situation as W.A.G.7. The official launch on 14th July, the prices will be known by then. Test drive on 15th July, can't wait any longer!
I have the option of canceling the booking and have been promised the full refund by the dealer if I don't like the test drive or the prices are higher than expected. But I really hope that's not the case as both me and my wife liked the car very much.
If I do not like the car after test drive or find the prices too high, I really do not know what to do because we have rejected all other cars in the segment due to some reason or the other. In that case, I might stretch my budget by 1.5 lakhs and go for the Honda Jazz (somewhat affordable after 55K discount)/used Honda City (1 or 2 years old).
question to W.A.G.7 -
What is your expectation on the procing front? I expect the pricing to be 3.75L for XE, 4.5 for XL and 5.2 for XV ( all ex-showroom prices).
Sorry, there is a mistake in the above post. As I am unable to EDIT the previous one, I am posting this.
The dealer is Lakshmi Nissan, Hyderabad (not Pune - copy-paste error).stupid:
Sorry guys! This is the final deal. I am not taking the 5th Alloy Wheel as I have heard that it causes rattling in the Spare Wheel Well, plus, the dealer wasn't to keen on getting it for me as he said they are available in sets of 4 only. I wonder how Autoenthusiast got his.
Other places, the on road price for S variant comes in excess of Rs.8L whereas you are getting it at 7.35L (even less than the price of SXI variant).
Even I am hoping that this will be the pricing. Now every one at the showroom in Pune from the sales guy, to the manager emphatically stated that their main competition is the VW Polo. So going by their initial logic it seems that the base variant XE will be ~4.75L, mid variant XL ~5.20L and top end XV ~5.80L.
Let me tell you another incident related to this. For what I don't know but one day around 15th June, all of sudden the salesman called me up and told me that the tentative pricing would be 4.37L for the XE, 4.80L for XE+, 5.37L for XL and 6.10L for the XV.
Now if we go by the salesman's figures, something seems amiss. If you don't consider XE+ variant, then base variant = 4.37L and mid variant = 5.37L. The price difference of 1 lac is just too much to justify especially considering that the bottom two variants are almost similar give or take a few things.
Two points here why I booked the XE:
Confusion, confusion and more confusion. In fact since the day I booked the car, the amount of maths calculations and number crunching that I have done, would put a school kid to shame!! stupid: And the end result? Wait until 15th July :D
