Hi Narendra,

Yes you can import a car from Japan. Exim policy stipulates that for a new vehicles being imported to the country, the vehicle should not be manufactured or assembled in India, not been sold, leased or loaned prior to being imported to India, or should have been registered for use in any country prior to being imported to India. Vehicle should be imported only from the country of manufacturer and should company with CMVR, 1989. Imports of new cars would be allowed only through Mumbai port, Chennai and Kolkata. The vehicle should necessarily have right hand steering controls. The government takes just double and or much excise duty on the new vehicles.

Thank you.

    Hi Rajesh, glad to know that you are planning for a new car and thanks for making us a part of it. Its great that you are getting good offers on Renault Pulse and if the on-road price of the car is coming near to the on-road price of KWID, then its a better pick here.

    Moreover, as you said that you have almost finalized Renault KWID 1.0 AMT, then we would really like to know that why you are going with a manual one. AMT will provide you a better driving experience while manoeuvring the car in city traffic and also, the KWID has more features (Comfort and convenience) on offer.

    Rest, there is no news from Renault about discontinuing the Pulse. We recommend that you take a test drive of both the vehicles and then make the final decision. Please click here to check the detailed comparison.

    Hey, we are glad to know that you are planning for a new car and the options that you have shortlisted are pretty good. Thank you for making us a part of your car buying journey.

    Now, talking about the cars that you have shortlisted, Maruti Vitara Brezza is the only SUV available in Maruti family. The car is compact and comes with lots of styling. Apart from this, the features that are on offer are pretty decent.

    Talking about WR-V, this newly launched car compete with the likes of TUV 300, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford Ecosport etc. There are only two models on offer in Diesel. The car has edgy looks and sharp exteriors.

    Now, coming to a conclusion, we recommend that you go ahead for Maruti Vitara Brezza here as per your requirements. The car delivers a better mileage and has a good resale value. There is no doubt on the maintenance cost as it belongs to Maruti Family and they do hold the best position in India when it comes to maintenance cost.

    Rest, please click here to check the detailed comparison and go ahead with a test drive in order to have a better clarity.

    Hey, we are glad to know that you are planning to buy a new car and thank you for making us a part of your car buying journey.

    Now, talking about the shortlisted options, both the cars are doing good in the market. Talking about the sale figures, both the cars are having a neck to neck competition.

    Both of them are available in Petrol as well as Diesel but the difference you will find is of engine capacity, power output, performance and the features that are on offer. Yes, the Tiago is a better package here as it comes with a better engine and provides lots of features while comparing it with the Celerio but as the Celerio comes from Maruti family, it possess a very affordable maintenance and service cost. Also, the resale value will also be good.

    Now, we recommend that you take a test drive of both the vehicles which will help you in making the final decision. Still, please click here to check the detailed comparison of both the cars.
