To push sales north in these sagging times, car manufacturers are offering huge discounts on almost all their cars. Here are the details from the Chevrolet camp.
The car came in as an Alto rival but was priced somewhat at a higher price than the Maruti’s largest seller. It got itself a facelift a month back and got, let’s say, a bit masculine but still it retained its cute character. However, that is not what sells cars in India.
It sells less than a thousand units despite being in the segment where cars sell 10,000+ units a month. In order to boost its sales, you can get the following benefits if you plan to own one now:
- Cash Discount of Rs.15,000
- Free Insurance
These discounts put it in Alto’s price bracket and we know, it is a better overall package than the Alto!
The car with cockpit interiors is quite a tepid seller for Chevrolet and is promoted as the Most efficient car in India with an ARAI claimed fuel efficiency of 25.44 kmpl. The 1.0L diesel motor is quite frugal and the car is a pretty good driver the city. Petrol Beat, though powerful on paper, isn’t the most peppy to drive on the roads.
It is on sale with following offers:
- Cash Discount of Rs.10,000
- Corporate Discount of Rs. 3,000
- Free Insurance
This adds upto a chunky amount and makes the deal sweeter. Chevy is also preparing a facelift of Beat but we know it is not coming anytime in the very near future.
This UV competed with the Toyota Qualis for a long time and then the Toyota rival got phased out. It held a monopoly position for quite some time but soon gave in to the competition from Xylo and Innova.
Nevertheless it still continues to be pretty reliable people mover and if you plan on buying this one, here are the benefits you can avail:
- Cash Discount of Rs.20,000
- Corporate Discount of Rs.5,000
Rs 25,000 off from the on-road price is all you can get plus if you have good bargaining skills, you can add up a few more lollipops to your kitty.
Choose to Cruze is what the tagline says and you don’t actually cruise in it. You instead catch your breath when the car races on the city roads. In its latest upgrade, it has got a stonker of a 166 BHP 2.0 litre engine which can put some luxury cars to shame. One of the best cars enthusiasts can buy around Rs.15 lakhs, Cruze is!
It is being offered with the following benefits:
- Cash Discount of Rs.25,000
- Corporate Discount of Rs.8,000
These add upto a total of something around Rs 33,000 and makes a good bargain against its chief nemesis- Hyundai Elantra.
Chevrolet Captiva and Sail U-VA
These are the two cars which are being offered without any discounts and rightly so. Captive has its own loyal base of customers with the Sail U-VA being a relatively new product which is slowly but steadily catching up with the competition. But you could always carry brochures of other car companies with rivalling products to get some offers on these too.
Chevrolet’s Upcoming Cars
The American carmaker has seemed a bit confused when it came to placing the products. At some places, it has got them right but a few have just backfired! Nevertheless, GM offers some very reliable cars with fairly fuel efficient engines. So if you are in the market for a new car, how about giving Chevrolet a go?
