Maruti Suzuki has lined up a slew of discounts in September 2018, which is a month that’s in the middle of the festive season. Even the hot-selling cars such as the Maruti Swift and Baleno are now available at decent discounts. The maximum discount on the Maruti Suzuki cars for September 2018 is Rs. 70,000.

Although the Swift is a best-seller, it’s still available at sizeable discounts. The special edition models of the petrol Swift are now getting a Rs 27,000 cash discount, which reduces to Rs. 20,000 in case of regular petrol models. The diesel variants of the car get a cash discount of Rs. 10,000. Exchange bonuses on the petrol and diesel Swifts stand at Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 25,000, respectively.
