huge Discounts on Alto Std!

Recommended Posts

yup ,the main reason was the STD variant not selling very much as you all said , but still when comapred to Maruti 800 it will be a good deal , just a few bucks more than the 800 Non AC! this discount might not be due to the launch of A star! A star will be priced higher than the present also and somewhere between Estilo and Alto or somewhere around Estilos price!

but sadly the same discount is not available in LX and LXI variants!

Cheers!

nano phobhia!!

spark created some havoc in MSIL factory

Lolsmiley36.gif , spark created havoc i agree , but MSIL isnt ready to accept the defeat and moreover the Spark sales werent that good as the Altos , see Alto Topped sales chart! i am sure the Non AC versions are sold very less and few in numbers and maybe they are having a lott of stock of the Non AC varaint , hence giving soem mouth watering discount! if Spark had really given a  very stiff competition and had come No 1 is Sales figures for the month , then Maruti would have given atleast 20k rs off on the LX and LXIsmiley17.gif

Is getting an ac retrofitted too much of a problem?

Of course not but after market fitment isnt that advisable! anyways it will cost you around 25 - 30 k rs for getting a Maruti genuine AC fitted under the Altos Hood! but resale you wont get as much as one will get for LX , btu still no problem but make sure you buy it from maruti dealer itsellf!

Cheers!

Everyone here seems to be talking about the Nano phobea. But the launch of Nano should affect the sales of 800 as they both are basic cars with similar performance, space etc. Alto, is considered to be a better and a step above alternate to 800 and with the LAKHTAKIA image of Nano, image concious people would still prefer an Alto. So the price cuts in alto can not be attributed to the 'NANO PHOBEA'.

It is a price war. NOw that Alto and 800 prices are similar,a price cut (or a discount) on 800 is justified to take the nano head on. And probably at 2 lakh the features of the alto might entice 10% of nano users. 800 surely wont have that kind of an impact
