Jun 20, 2024 09:36 AM IST

Incentives offered by carmakers are the highest in five years and are aimed at tempting customers to buy more and more cars as sales slow.

For anyone wishing to buy a car right now, there are some happy tidings as carmakers and dealers are offering incentives- discounts, exchange bonuses, assured gifts- almost 5-11%. These are the highest in five years and are aimed at tempting customers to buy more and more cars as sales slow following a record FY24. The offers from carmakers are not just on old models but also on those that went for sale just a year ago. These incentives depend on fuel type, variants and brands and cut across all body types - hatchbacks and sedans to SUVs.
