If you are still contemplating to buy your first or next set of four wheels, this might just be the best time to go ahead and get it finally. We say that because prices across all segments are expected to increase by a minimum of two to six per cent by January, and car companies, anticipating a hit because of the price rise, have increased the amount of discounts now even more than what they were offering in the festive season! You see, the financial year is more important for them than the calendar year…

But, while year-end discounts are not uncommon, the last two months of this year will see heftier discounts also because of less-than-expected sales in this festive season. So manufacturers are really offering sweet deals to clear the 2014 inventory as soon as possible. For example, the Maurti Suzuki Stingray won’t sting your wallet now; you may get discounts of upto 80 thousand rupees on this bling edition of the Wagon R!

Hyundai Eon

Hyundai has also introduced a ‘special price’ for the Eon, and it can now be had for a mouth-watering INR 2.45 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) making it cheaper by a massive 43 thousand rupees! A flat discount of INR 38,500 is being offered on the old warrior, the Santro and Hyundai’s flagship saloon in India, the Sonata, can be yours for around 80 thousand less than its sticker price; haggle more and you might even get a full lakh off! Even the latest entrants like Xcent and Grand i10 Diesels are offered at offers of upto Rs 15,000.

Fiat Grande Punto Limited Edition White front

The most beautiful hatchback in the country today, the previous-gen Fiat Punto is also available at a discount of about 80 thousand rupees. That’s very tempting indeed, and I am sure that, like the Sonata, you can even bargain for more on this one! Linea has benefits of upto Rs 1.08 Lacs. In fact, pre-facelift models from all companies are being offered at great discounts. The outgoing Scorpio will save you 50 thousand while the now-old Swift is available for 25 thousand less.

Audi-Q-Drive-Off-Road-Q3-Q5-Q7 (23)

One look at the discounts being offered in the luxury segment will have you rethink the definition of the word ‘discount.’ Purchasing an Audi SUV can save you anywhere between 60 thousand to 4.6 lakh, while buying a four-ringed sedan can save you even more – from 1.5 lakh to 5.5 lakh! We hear that the other Germans are offering fantastic discounts as well…

Okay, the segment and model notwithstanding, it seems like there are discounts on every car that is on sale right now. Now I am just going to inform my cousin about this as he really looks forward to buy the outgoing Alto K10…
