Maruti Wagon R vs Hyundai Santro, which car has the better discount offers during May 2020? Read ahead to find out!
Maruti Wagon R is perhaps the quintessential family car, compact, light, spacious, and extremely affordable. Same goes for the Hyundai Santro, which is the South Korean carmaker’s cheapest, entry-level offering for India. Although both the cars were quite popular among buyers, sales have been disappointing in recent times owing to the market slowdown. The lockdown enforced throughout the country has made matters even more difficult. To improve sales and attract customers, both Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai are offering deals and discounts on these hatchbacks. Here, we shall briefly compare the offers available on both cars.
Maruti Suzuki Wagon R is being offered with a cash discount of Rs. 10,000. On the other hand, Hyundai is offering a cash discount worth Rs. 20,000. On the Wagon R, you get an exchange bonus of Rs. 20,000, while on the Santro, the same is worth Rs. 15,000. It should be noted that the exchange bonus gets added to the value of the car brought in for exchange. Maruti Suzuki currently retails the Wagon R from a base price of Rs. 4.45 lakh up to Rs. 5.94 lakh, while a Hyundai Santro begins at Rs. 4.57 lakh ad goes up to Rs. 6.25 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, New Delhi).
Maruti Suzuki offers two engine options with the Wagon R. The first one is a 1.0-litre, naturally aspirated, inline-3 petrol engine, which can generate a maximum power and a peak torque of 68 PS and 90 Nm, respectively. The second option is a 1.2-litre, naturally aspirated, inline-4 petrol motor, with 83 Ps and 113 Nm. A 5-speed manual is offered as standard, and a 5-speed AMT is available as an option on higher trims. The 1.0-litre engine can also be had with a factory-fitted CNG kit, which turns it into a bi-fuel vehicle.
