Aria is the other car from TATA, In Bangalore i have come only across 3 or 4 vehicles till now.
They are also lagging in propduction due to the infotainment system they are sourcing from China.

The new Jazz has a waiting period of @ 4-5 months in Blore. Its combined effect of increase in demand due to price cut and delay in shippment of parts from Japan.

The cars which come to my mind for now are.

Swift , Fortuner , Aria , Dzire , Fluidic Verna and i20 CRDI (some cases).

These are the cars with waiting period in Chennai. Innova doesn't have much waiting period here.

Actually Fluidic Verna Diesel 1.6 SX only has so much waiting period. All other models are available within a month or two.

Re: 'Wait and Buy' Car Models

Alert Alert Bookings for swift is stopped due to delay in the productions[shock]

Reason:The strike in the Manesar plant has made the production capacity to decrease the productivity.

guess what the bookings crossed 90000.So in order to clear the back log of the current bookings the dealerships have stopped taking bookings now.

The waiting period of swift models in Bangalore now is:
ZDI:8 months
VDI & LDI:6 Months

All petrol models:2-3 months

Re: 'Wait and Buy' Car Models

Surprised to hear Fortuner has only 2 months waiting period in Kerala alone , rest of the places the waiting period seems to be the same 8-9 months.


Also i forgot to mention Vento TDI here. It has a waiting period of 6 months for diesel alone. Petrol models can be got very easily.
