The ex-showroom price of Maruti Celerio VXI in Kanpur is INR 4,47,714 as it is also mentioned on Maruti's official website. The on-road price will be somewhere around INR 5,01,000 inclusive of RTO and Insurance charges. If you find any difference in the ex-showroom price, you may ask the dealer to provide you the bifurcation of price that will clear most of the confusion.
There is a difference in ex-showroom price itself which is mainly due to various state level tax on vehicles and transportation cost. And as the ex-showroom cost is different, the Road Tax would definitely be different, due to percentage value and different rates in various states.
Now talking about on-road price, it may also vary. The reasons are mentioned below:
- Different state level sales taxes
- Different Octroi charges
- Different Logistics/Handling charges
- Different registration charge

I am planning to Maruti Baleno. But I am confused in choosing Baleno 1.2 Delta or 1.2 Sigma. The major difference I find between them is there no music system. Can I buy 1.2 Sigma and externally fit a music system of my kind. If I can, please tell me the cost of it.
Teja, the Sigma variant is pretty bare bones. It hasn't got most of the features that a premium car should have. It is always better to spend some extra and get the extra features.
For that money, you get additional features such as Power Windows-Rear, Automatic Climate Control, Multifunction Steering, Parking Sensors, Electric Folding Rear View Mirror, Rear Window Wiper, Rear Window Washer, Rear Window Defogger, Wheel Covers, CD Player, Radio, Speakers Front, Speakers Rear, Integrated 2DIN Audio, Bluetooth Connectivity, USB & Auxiliary Input.
I personally think it's worth spending the extra cash for the Delta variant, you almost get your money worth with the extra features on offer and the premium feel, every time you sit inside the car. Fortunately, with the Baleno, you get airbags and ABS on all variants, so safety is taken care of. If you buy the Sigma and spend on accessories, you won't be satisfied. You will worry about long term reliability and service issues again. It is definitely worth spending the extra cash for the Delta variant, because you get more features with it.

Two days back I bought one i10 sports 2012 from Src motors ..I went to this dealer seeing ad in Cardekho ..they advertised the car as 21000 driven , I trusted on Mr. Somya (the owners) word and when I asked again again for service history , they didn't bother to show me but still I took a chance . The odometer showing the 21000 the cars is driven .. Today I checked the service history of the car in Hyundai site and it's showing last serviced on August 2016 and 47000 driven by that time . Please be aware of this dealer , they are not trustable at all . I end up with paying around Rs 3 lacs (2 lac 71 thousands car price , 5000 Rs for 1 year Cardekho warranty , though this dealer gave me a warranty for 6 months , I checked today and 13000 Rs for name transfer ) I am in complete loss . I am going to file a case in consumer forum against Cardekho and this dealer .
It's sad to hear about your experience. We really not wanted you to experience this. Moreover, as per our policy, CarDekho do not provides any guarantee on the odometer reading of any car.

Rest, the car has been inspected through a 120 point check up and be assured about the condition of the car.
You may check the inspection report for the car condition and you will find the images of odometer at the time inspection. We show the details which are available at the time of inspection.
Looking to change to an AMT/Auto option. Currently i have the alto k10 2010 model. I want to change to an amt by next year because of the daily bumper to bumber traffic where i have to constantly keep changing gears. So changing to AMT in alto or renault.. is it a good option.
It is undoubtedly a good decision to switch to a car which has AMT transmission for hassle free driving.
Automated Manual Transmission commonly called AMT is basically a manual transmission car in which the operation of the clutch and the gear changing is done automatically with the help of a computerised electro-hydraulic mechanism. An AMT car will not have a clutch and the gear lever will only have the options of Neutral, Reverse and Forward. There is also the control to upshift or downshift the gear manually with the +/- option.
The upshift or downshift +/- option on the gear lever helps to select the gear, for example when you want to overtake you can shift to a lower gear (from 4th to 3rd gear for example) just by tapping the AMT gear shift stick. You press the accelerator and rev up the engine at the lower gear and you will get the necessary acceleration required to overtake.
Another very important advantage of an AMT automatic car is that the AMT car will not roll backwards when you stop and go on an uphill slope. In a manual car you have to be an expert using the clutch and brakes together to avoid rolling backwards when you stop and start on an upwards slope.
Added to all these advantages of the AMT car, is the fact that an AMT auto gear car actually gives better mileage than a manual car. This is because the electronic brain of the AMT auto gear car is a much better driver than any of us and knows exactly when to change gears and save on petrol or diesel.
Coming to Alto K10 - The Alto K10 has always been a fun to drive little hatchback. Maruti is also offering an AMT gearbox on the Alto K10. The Alto K10 AMT, or AGS as Maruti is calling it in the K10, is the most affordable automatic car in the country. In terms of technical specifications, it is incorporated with a K10 petrol engine that has three cylinders. This mated with a 5-speed automated manual transmission gear box, which makes it an affordable automatic car in the market. On the safety front, it has some vital aspects like child safety locks, high mount stop lamp and a few others that offers maximum protection. This motor has the ability of producing a maximum power of 67.04bhp at 6000rpm and generates a peak torque output of 90Nm at 3500rpm, which is quite good considering the Indian road and traffic conditions.At the same time, it returns a fuel economy of around 20 Kmpl when driven under standard city traffic conditions.
Talking about Kwid AMT - Renault India confirmed that the Kwid 1.0-litre AMT, or “Easy-R” as they call it, is indeed in the works and will be launched within "this financial year".
Like other AMT cars available in the country, the Kwid Easy-R will offer fuel economy and performance of a manual transmission along with the convenience of clutch-free driving using the automated gear shifts. The gear lever has three modes - Drive, Neutral and Reverse. While in Drive the control unit automatically selects the ideal gear according to the driving conditions. Moreover, the crawl function helps the car move forward and backward slowly without throttle input.
We expect the AMT to be limited to the top-spec trims i.e. RXT and RXT (O) only. Considering the AMT will be available in top trims, it will get the whole laundry list of features, including the 7-inch infotainment system, front two power windows, air conditioning and a digital infotainment cluster.
Rest, we suggest you to take a test drive before you make a final call after Kwid AMT gets launched.
