Finding it challenging to purchase a car? It could be due to a move to a new city, the hassle of managing insurance and servicing or simply the hassle of the pandemic restrictions. What if we told you there is a simpler way of owning your car, minus all the complications?
We're talking about Maruti Suzuki's car subscription model, which allows you to bring home a car for a fee, without needing to make any down payment. An all-inclusive monthly fee covers maintenance, insurance and 24x7 roadside assistance. And did we mention, you get to pick from a wide range of brand new cars?
As the Maruti Suzuki tagline goes, "Choose a car, drive it, enjoy it. It's surprisingly easy." Here are easy steps for subscription:
Choose the car and tenure
Complete the application and make payment
Take delivery and enjoy driving your car
Return or upgrade your car
The subscription scheme offers a choice of two number plates: white and black. While the first is registered in the customer's name, the other in the leasing company's name. For the white plate, tenure options available are 12, 18, 24, 36 or 48 months and for black plates, it's 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 or 48 months. Customers can extend their tenures, along with the option of vehicle upgrades or explore buying the car at market price. Or simply return the car after use, with no resale risk. It also works out to be more affordable than buying a car, thanks to the zero maintenance, insurance and down payment cost. Delivery usually takes 15 days from the time of booking for a white plate subscription and around 20-25 days for a black plate.
The subscription charge also covers an annual mileage option as mentioned in the customer agreement, ranging from 10,000 to 25,000 km. Any extra kms driven will be chargeable at certain rates, depending on white and black plate vehicles, besides the model and tenure
The company has partnered with India's leading subscription companies to provide customers an easy and hassle-free experience. Customers can choose their preferred colour from the vast portfolio which includes WagonR, Swift, Dzire, Vitara Brezza, Ertiga, Ignis, Baleno, Ciaz, S-cross and XL6. Maruti Suzuki Subscribe is currently available in Mumbai, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Noida, Pune and Kochi.
So, if you like the idea of enjoying the benefits of driving your own car minus the hassle, then this subscription service is exactly what you need.
