Wondering which car has better discounts – Maruti Swift or Hyundai i10 Nios? Here, we shall compare the discounts available during May for both these cars.
Maruti Swift is one of the most popular passenger cars in India, owing to its frugal engines, affordable price, and also Maruti’s strong aftersales and service support infrastructure in India. These turbulent times have caused the Indo-Japanese carmaker to offer considerable discounts on even the latest, BSVI-compliant stock. Same is the case for Swift’s biggest competitor, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. The South Korean carmaker has also been offering sweet deals for the i10 Nios, in order to attract more customers.
Here, we have a brief comparison of the discounts available on the Maruti Swift and the Hyundai i10 Nios, along with their ex-showroom prices. Maruti Suzuki has been offering a cash discount worth Rs. 20,000 on the Swift. Hyundai, on the other hand, is offering a cash discount of Rs. 10,000. On the Swift, you get an exchange bonus of Rs. 25,000, while the same on the i10 Nios is worth Rs. 10,000. Please note that exchange bonus is independent of the value of the car brought in for exchange, and gets added over it. The price of a new Maruti Swift ranges from Rs. 5.19 to 8.02 lakh, while a Hyundai Grand i10 Nios retails for Rs. 5.04 lakh to Rs. 8.04 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, New Delhi).
