Italian car maker Fiat has lined up a big discount on the Linea Classsic sedan. The car is now available for a chunky discount of up to 75,000 rupees and this scheme is valid on the 2013 versions of the car. Should you choose to buy a 2014 model of the Linea Classic, Fiat is offering an equally large discount of 65,000 rupees.
The split up of this discount is as follows:
- 2013 Fiat Linea Classic – 50,000 rupees exchange bonus and 25,000 rupees worth free insurance
- 2014 Fiat Linea Classic – 40,000 rupees exchange bonus and 25,000 rupees worth free insurance
- 2014 Fiat Linea Classic – 40,000 rupees gift cheque (if you don’t exchange a car) and 25,000 rupees worth free insurance
Notably, the Ford Classic is now available for an even lower price tag on the back of the excise duty cuts effected in the recently announced union budget of 2014. The Ford Classic 1.6 Petrol LXi is now available at 4.88 lakh rupees and the 1.4 Diesel LXi is priced at 6.18 lakh rupees, ex-showroom Delhi. Like Fiat, Ford India dealers too are offering discounts of 30,000-40,000 rupees upon the buyer negotiating.
Both the Fiat Linea Classic and the Ford Classic are larger C-Segment cars than compact sedans such as the Maruti Swift Dzire and the Honda Brio Amaze. With the Ford Classic and Fiat Linea Classic now available at compelling price tags, car buyers desirous of larger sedans now have two more value-for-money offerings to pick and choose from.
