Maruti reduces discount on Alto, M800

New Delhi: Expecting a bullish demand in the festive season, car market leader Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL) has decreased discounts on its best-selling hatch Alto and flagship Maruti 800 by Rs1,000 and Rs4,000 respectively.

The company was offering a discount of Rs11,000 on Alto, which will now come down to Rs10,000, while discount on Maruti 800 would drop to Rs8,000 from Rs12,000 earlier.

The reduction in discount is in line with the company’s expectation of a good demand of Alto, Omni and Maruti 800, sources said.

MSIL would continue offering discounts on various models except Swift and SX4.

It currently offers Rs18,000 discount on Wagon-R petrol and Zen Estilo, while Rs3,000 is off on Wagon-R LPG. A heavy discount of Rs30,000 is being offered on Esteem, which is expected to be phased out by next year.

The company is offering a discount of Rs10,000 on its multi-utility vehicle Versa. The discount on Omni, however, has been reduced to Rs6,000 from previous month’s Rs7,000.
