The festive season is an eagerly awaited period that automakers and prospective buyers look forward to each year. As the auspicious period is the most favourable for a new purchase, carmakers cash in on this sentiment to boost sales and increase their footprint in the Indian market. They dole out heavy discounts, exchange offers, corporate benefits and a host of other offers.
As this year’s sales at the start of the year were not so impressive and many carmakers incurred losses, they are keen to improve their sales figures and add to the deficit by offering huge discounts to the customers. Here are some of the best deals available for the compact or mid-size sedan segment listed as per the companies:
