Went for test drive of Ertiga and Duster again. Here are the Details Ertiga
I Could park it inside. A bit of squeeze but able to do that myself
The test drive vehicle is a petrol one. Never driven the K-Series before. surprised to see how good it is (driven only in city traffic though)
20K Cash Discount + 3K accessories free. Seems I can get another 2-3K worth of accessories if I negotiate further.
7-10 Days delivery time (max) Duster
Duster SA came with an experienced driver who was able to park it in few ways. It was a bit difficult but with few days of practice, I can park it as well I guess.
Driven it in a pot holed road and it handles very well. It is a 110 PS and the pickup was good.
When I called in the morning, the SA told me the 60K offer was no more available. But he called me again in the evening and told me he can get the 60K offer (the RC book process). Finally he agreed for 60+10 K cash discount + I guess I can save 5-6 K if I take the insurance outside. Mudflap + Number Plate + Floor mats are free.
Because of the budget, I am opting only for 85 PS RXL. The ABS
model costs another 2 L which I dont want to shell. Question as usual
With the 70K offer, is it make sense to go for the duster?
Is power in 85 PS adequate?
SA says the deal will be there only for 2 days. I thought i will take a final call after Diwali. So bit confused now. Main things which I liked in the Duster are
- SUV look (of course Mini)
- Mileage, more or less equal to Ertiga
- Closed boot space (minor one though)
- 10 K service interval
- Looks as a complete product like the Ertiga
Not considering XUV 500 W4 because it is a much bigger vehicle (again from my parking considerations
+ may be out of my budget).
