With a week left for 2017 Diwali, buying sentiment is on the rise across industries and buying a new vehicle around Dhanteras, ahead of Diwali is considered to be auspicious. Vehicle makers too try and capitalise on this positive sentiment of buyers by offering them various offers including cash discounts, buybacks and gift hampers. This year, in particular, vehicle sales have been on the rise in the last few months as sales had gone down due to the uncertainty around GST. What makes Diwali discount on cars more special than other schemes is that carmakers and two-wheeler makers go all out in order to entice customers to buy new vehicles during this period. Hence, they offer a combination of multiple benefits to make the deal sweeter. In this story, we've rounded up the best deals that are being offered on various models by certain carmakers. All discounts mentioned herein are at a dealership level so figures may vary from city to city. In certain cases, companies are offering up to Rs 1 lakh off on the ex-showroom prices of cars. Discount figures mentioned herein are suggestive so if you can bargain harder with the dealers, you might be able to land yourself an even better deal. We'll keep updating this space with more deals from other carmakers and their models so stay tuned.
