Is this a good deal?

This is a good deal for buyers who book a Ford vehicle on May 13. The interest rate of 10.99% is being offered through HDFC bank, which normally has rates ranging has high was 14%. This 10.99% interest rate is on a three year or 36 month loan and is lower than the lowest car loan on offer – which is from SBI at 11.25%.

 

The Figo is already a value for money proposition for its prices are substantially lower than other hatchbacks in the segment. A deal of Rs. 24,500 in the form of exchange bonus and insurance is definitely worth it, as this will make the Figo’s on-road price almost as low as that of a Wagon-R.

Ford is also trying to push the sales of its Classic petrol by offering up to Rs. 54,500 in the form of exchange bonus, accessories and insurance. This would make the Classic petrol just as expensive as a Maruti Dzire VXi. There’s also an offer on the Fiesta diesel, but that’s only for insurance worth Rs. 10,000, which isn’t much. Of course, not many are brave enough to offer discounts on diesel cars because of the prevalent demand.

Overall, if you’ve been contemplating buying a Ford, the “Midnight Sale Offer” is a good time to book one, as you can also get some other consumer goods like a mobile phone or TV thrown in, which depends on a lucky draw that is done when you book the car.
