Prices for the Tata Punch CNG, which began at Rs. 7.10 lakh (ex-showroom), were first revealed in January of this year and then launched in August of the same year. Punch iCNG is well-known due to its twin-cylinder technology, which holds 60 liters (equivalent to water). This version is even more desirable due to its ARAI-claimed mileage of 26.9 kg/km.
Right now, Tata Motors is only providing a corporate discount of Rs. 5,000 on the Punch. As of right now,
the Exter CNG is the only direct competitor of the Punch CNG. While Hyundai’s smallest SUV is priced
between Rs. 8.33 lakh and Rs. 9.06 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom), the former is priced between Rs. 7.09
lakh and Rs. 9.68 lakh.
The Maruti Fronx builds upon the popular formula of its flagship hatchback, the Baleno, by incorporating
the taste of a coupe-SUV, thereby enhancing its allure. The model’s petrol heart notwithstanding, it boasts an ARAI-certified mileage of 21.79 km/l, which is impressive and puts even a few diesel SUVs to shame! In November 2023, there is no discount offered by The Fronx. Although the model currently has no direct competitors, it does compete in the sub-four-meter SUV market.
Features like automatic climate control, OTA updates, 60:40 split rear seats, projector headlamps, LED
taillights, wireless phone connectivity, and a seven-inch touchscreen system with four speakers give the
Coupe-SUV the advantage over the Kia Sonet HTE 1.2 Petrol MT variant, which is priced at Rs. 9.13 lakh.
Sales for Kia are booming, and the Sonet is still able to command a waiting period. That being said, with
the facelifted model’s anticipated arrival in December of this year, discounts will probably start to
When the Renault Triber was first introduced, its three-row seating, remarkably compact interior, and—most importantly—its reasonable price made headlines. In February of this year, the MPV received a model year update and is now available in dual-tone colors.
A variety of savings are being offered by Renault India in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. Customers can receive benefits worth up to Rs. 65,000 in the form of various discounts, valid through the end of the current month. Renault also unveiled its Urban Night Edition lineup, which includes the Triber, to commemorate the holiday season.
The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga is the Renault Triber’s main rival in the entry-level MPV market. Maruti’s MPV’s
entry-level LXi(O) variant costs Rs. 10.06 lakh, which is just a little bit more than our budget.
One such vehicle that makes everyone content inside is the Nissan Magnite, whether it’s the driver, someone savoring the extra space in the backseat, or even someone who is just enjoying the affordability of an automatic transmission. The model under consideration is the XV AMT variant, which is priced a whopping Rs. 2.40 lakh less than the Turbo CVT variant in comparison. You can save nearly Rs. 97,000 on the Magnite until the end of the month, depending on what part of India you live in. The Magnite competes with vehicles such as the Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, and its own sibling, the Renault Kiger, in the very competitive sub-four-meter SUV class.
MG Comet EV
Following the ZS, the British company’s second electric vehicle is the quirky little MG Comet. It is designed for people who would use it as a second or third car because of its small size and reasonably cheap operating costs.
The 10.25-inch touchscreen display, wireless mobile connectivity, OTA updates for Telematics, keyless central locking, ESP, and all-LED lighting are some of the key features that keep the Comet ahead of the competition. Having said that, the Comet;s lower battery warranty—three years and one lakh kilometers—as opposed to the Tiago EV’s or most other EVs sold in India’s eight years or one lakh kilometers—does not help the vehicle.
