Hello Gagan Sir,

I have got quote of 14.17L for Nexon XZ+(S) diesel. This model is slightly above my budget but the car is available right now, where as petrol cars have approx. 2 months waiting. I was considering XZ+(S) Petrol variant. I have 3 questions.

1. Is 14.17 L on-road a good price (This does not include any accessories of extended warranty etc.
2. What is the mileage i can expect with 50-50% City highway drive ? I drove Nexon petrol for 15 kilometers and trip MID shows me 18.1 Kmpl on mostly highway road with decent amount of traffic and 50% in City driving mode and 50% in sports driving mode. Assuming the same driving style how much mileage i can expect from Diesel Nexon.
3. How is diesel resale car market right now, i mean which cars lose more value, petrol or diesel? Assuming similar condition of car.

Hi Akshay ji,

When Nexon XZ Plus EV with exshowroom of Rs 15.56 Lakh + 50K for Insurance factoring in
> Road Tax waiver
> Incentive Benefits of upto Rs 1.5 Lakh (which will be credited to Buyer account)
> Income Tax Deduction benefits u/s 80EEB (Rs 1.5 Lakh deduction can be claimed in next 3 yrs on taking car loan, means for someone in highest tax brakcet can save in Rs 50,000 on Income tax)

will cost in even lesser than Nexon AMT Variant in Diesel - then who will buy Diesel AMT
Thats the reason why this top of line AMT Diesel almost readily available

If you consider spending in that much amount, EV can rather be great pick.
> Wont have to worry anymore for car running cost as less than rs 2 per Km
> Scintillating Performance, will forget in Petrol / Diesel
> EV in Single Speed Automatic much smooth than conventional AMT

With 8 yr warranty of battery and fact that 200 to 220 Kms range is what achieved by buyers - spending that much amount makes sense to go with EV instead of Diesel AMT

Even if your running on highway - EV infra charging setup is on an increase and there are good number of apps to check out

Giving a thought - as its utmost important to make right choice, and then consider on car price and negotiation
If you think of taking budget to that extent - Nexon EV can be a great pick to consider.

Hello ,

Thanks for Reply, the Nexon Diesen XS+ (S) I am considering is Manual one. Even that price is over budget for me, I am stretching it by 1L almost. Going for EV is way out of budget for me also doesn't make sense to me at this point for below reasons:
1. I don't have charging infra at my apartment complex where I live.
2. Charging infra on highways is also playing catch up and will need quite a bit of time, especially in hilly regions.
3. For long road trips (i plan to do a few of them) based on current EV distance ranges, will have to waste hours in between each full charge.

I plan to either go for XZ+(S) Petrol which actually fits my budget or XZ+(S) diesel. The added performance and fuel efficiency benefit over Petrol combined could make up for price gap eventually if the efficiency is at least 25-30% better than petrol in every condition compared to petrol.

Can you please address the queries in initial post?

Sure,

For On road price
Looks steep
Nexon XZ Plus Sunroof: Rs 11.89 Lakh
RTO Road Tax (for MH): Rs 1.72 Lakh including bank HP Charges
Insurance: Rs 36K for Zero dep, Engine Protection, Consumables, Emergency Assistance from HDFC Ergo
Basic Kit : Generally negotiated free as mats, mud flaps, perfume, body cover type

Final on road price: Rs 13.97 Lakh
If its a dual tone - yes Price woild be higher to extent of Rs 18K or so on road making final on road price as Rs 14.15 Lakh
So essentially dealer selling you car without any discounts

If hes showing discounts then possibly he might have shown higher Insurance premium (premium quote with less OD Discounts and later on passing that with OD Discounts)

Nexon Diesel
Pls dont go by MID, and dont judge Nexon fuel efficiency by that
Fuel efficiency can vary significantly basis driving mode, conditions. Anything around 12 Kmpl in petrol and 15 Kmpl in Diesel should be a reasonable expectation on basis city drive. While on highway anything around 16 to 17 Kmpl in Petorl and 20 Kmpl in Diesel be a reasonable expectation

3. How is diesel resale car market right now, i mean which cars lose more value, petrol or diesel? Assuming similar condition of car.
Diesel Market to only grow. Maruti all set to launch in DDIS 225 Diesel engine in Brezza

Sharing you indicative numbers (if not from Delhi NCR)
Creta has 40% sales in Diesel
Harrier, Innova, Fortuner all are diesel models only
Compass has 80% sales in Diesel
Ford Ecosport sales also has 50% to it

If SUV is there they have considerable sales in Diesel - for lower running cost, improved power performance

Hope should help !!

Thanks for response Gagan sir.

As for insurance which optional insurance riders are good to get while purchasing car.

The comprehensive insurance quote is for OD+ Third party (3 year). I am planning to add Zero dep. Add on.

Apart from that There are various riders like
1. Return to invoice.
2. Engine protection.
3. Electrical/non electrical accessories protection.
4. Tyre protection.
5. Consumable rider
6. Emergency assistance (RSA from insurer).

I checked FY 2020 claim settlement ratio and Iffco tokio and HDFC ergo are quit high up on list so planning to buy from either of them.

I am going for finalizing Nexon Diesel tomorrow and this would help me choose right insurance. Also planning to insurance outside of dealership if they refuse to match the coverage and price. Please guide.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Akshay ji,

Insurance riders depends on individual risk preference
But of the lot

1. Return to invoice.
2. Engine & Gear Box protection.
5. Consumable rider
6. Emergency assistance (RSA from insurer).

as covers the car comprehensively

are what popular and been recommended to take in.

Tyre secure wont recommend as is priced higher and comes with many T&C

For choosing Insurance company been insurance company service level can vastly vary basis location - best way is to call up workshop, and ask for body shop manager number - have a word with him as Insurance claims are what been settled by them and they aware of which insurance company offers quickest and most transparent service.

Also, can take his feedback on HDFC Ergo / Iffco one for recommendation.
Hope should help !!
