Tata Motors has been in the market for some time and earlier this year, it got a minor facelift and feature update as part of BS6 transition. It is one of the safest sub-4 meter SUVs in the segment with 5 star rating at Global NCAP crash test. Here we have a video from a vlogger who explains how he had saved around Rs 50,000 while buying his Tata Nexon.
The vidoe has been uploaded by My Motor Gaadi on their youtube channel. The vlogger recently bought Tata Nexon XMA (S) variant. This is S variant was introduced in the market recently and as soon as it was in the market, vlogger had booked it. He had gone for the AMT variant. The main difference in XMA (S) from regular XMA trim is that it gets an electric sunroof. Nexon XMA (S) trim is one of the most affordable SUV in the market to offer a sunroof.
The ex-showroom price for this SUV when vlogger bought was Rs 8.96 lakh. According to the vlogger, dealership was supposed to deliver him the Nexon in 15 days but, due to high demand of this particular variant, the vehicle was delivered after 2 months. Meanwhile, dealership had installed a floor mat and gave whole car Teflon coating in order to compensate for late delivery. Apart from that he was given an option to go for genuine Tata accessories worth Rs 30,000 which he did not buy. He saved money here and he simply said no because he did not wanted all the accessories.
Accessory package included scuff plate chrome garnish and other elements which he was not at all interested. Next place where he had save money on his Nexon was the insurance. Tata was providing him an insurance worth Rs 53,000 but, it was not giving him engine protector and was also not covering the consumables. He looked out for alternate options and luckily found out one which was providing him all this at a very low price. The insurance that he had chosen was giving him 95 per cent IDV and cost him around Rs 31,000. He had saved around 22,000 here on the insurance. Apart from that he says that he had saved a bit by directly financing his vehicle from the dealership. The vlogger had saved around Rs 50,000 by not buying the accessories and the insurance that dealership had recommended.
