Maruti Suzuki has added three models namely WagonR, Ignis and S-Cross to its Subscribe offering that is currently operational in major cities like Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai and Ahmedabad. All thanks to the WagonR that happens to be one of the most affordable cars in India, Maruti Suzuki Subscribe has now become even more affordable. In order to be precise, the customers will need to pay just an all-inclusive monthly subscription charge starting at just Rs 12,722 for the Wagon R Lxi. On the other hand, in order to opt for the Ignis Sigma in Delhi, you will have to pay Rs 13,772 (including taxes) for a tenure of 48 months. Under the Maruti Suzuki Subscribe, these cars are being offered in white number plate (registered in the name of customer) in as many as 8 cities.
Now, in order to explain the cost difference in Ex-showroom vs Subscription scenario! The Maruti Suzuki WagonR Lxi is currently priced at Rs 4,45,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). When you convert it into the on-road Delhi price, the figure comes out to be around Rs 4.90 lakh. On the other hand, let’s take the case of 48-month tenure under Maruti Suzuki Subscribe for the same car. In this, for a monthly Rs 12,722, you end up paying a total amount of Rs 6,10,656 after 48 months. Comparing this with the on-road price of the vehicle, you pay around Rs 1.20 lakh more theoretically.
However, the advantages of the Maruti Suzuki Subscribe include the fact that it comes with the in-built cost of the insurance, roadside assistance and maintenance which means that in terms of the total ownership cost, you will end up saving a significant amount without any liabilities. In addition, after the completion of the subscription tenure, the customer can also opt to extend, upgrade the vehicle, or even buy the car at market price. Moreover, you can choose the plan tenure options from 24, 36, and 48 months as per your convenience.
Other Maruti Suzuki cars that are currently being offered under Maruti Suzuki Subscribe are Swift, Dzire, Vitara Brezza, Ertiga from Maruti Suzuki Arena. The Nexa offerings under the Maruti Suzuki Subrcibe include Baleno, Ciaz, and the XL6. That said, the company is currently offering Maruti Suzuki Subscribe for 10 models in a total of 8 cities. All thanks to the Maruti Suzuki Subscribe, a customer can actually use a brand-new car without actually owning it.
