The brisk selling Hyundai Venue and Creta are not being offered with any cash discounts
With the next generation Hyundai i20 slated to be launched in India soon, its predecessor is being offered with the highest ever cash discount it has witnessed in its lifespan. Rushlane has learnt that, for the month of October 2020, Hyundai has instructed its dealers to offer a flat cash discount of INR 50,000.
Hyundai i20 discounts
In addition the INR 50k cash discount which is available for all, the company will also offer an addition discount of INR 20k in the form of exchange bonus and INR 5k for corporate/POI customers. So, if you are a corporate customer who is looking to exchange your current car for a current gen Hyundai i20, you can drive away with overall discount of INR 75,000. The offer, however, is not application to the Magna+ variant.
i20 is the second best selling car in the segment, behind Maruti Baleno. Offering such high discounts on a car which generated sales of almost 10k units last month – only indicates that the company is trying to clear stock of current gen i20, ahead of the launch of new gen i20. Hyundai would be hoping that the significant cash discounts combined with festive season sentiment will help clear the stock.
