Which sub-4-metre sedan has the better discount offers during May 2020 – Maruti Dzire or Hyundai Aura?
Maruti Suzuki, the largest carmaker in India, is offering plenty of discounts on its entire vehicles line-up. With such lucrative deals, the company hopes to attract customers and beat the sales slowdown that has engulfed the entire auto market right now. Hyundai India has also been offering some brilliant offers on its vehicles with similar expectations, to lure buyers. The sub-compact sedan offerings from these two companies, Dzire and Aura, are two of the hottest contestants in the Indian car market. Let’s compare the discounts available on these two cars to see which one is a better deal at the moment.
Maruti Suzuki is offering the Dzire with a cash discount worth Rs. 20,000. Apart from that, there is a 25,000 exchange bonus available on the car. This brings the total costs of benefits up to Rs. 45,000. Although the Dzire was only recently launched in its current facelift avatar, it is interesting to see that Maruti is already offering such substantial benefits with its car. Hyundai Aura, on the other hand, has no ongoing deals and offers provided by the manufacturer. There are, however, a few discounts offered by various dealerships, along with a few other benefits like free accessories. As the Aura is a brand new vehicle nameplate, Hyundai may have wished to refrain from any huge discounts at the moment.
Maruti Dzire is powered by a 1.2-litre, naturally aspirated, inline-4, ‘K-series’ petrol engine. This motor can generate a maximum of 90 PS and 113 Nm of peak power and torque, respectively. There are two transmission options available here- a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT. Currently, there is neither a mild-hybrid nor a CNG version available, both of which may be added later down the line.
