As per our dealer-level sources, the 1.5-litre NA Petrol variant of the SUV is no longer available as its stocks have dried up. However, the Turbo variant can be had for up to Rs 2.5 lakh. This offer is being provided through various discounts such as cash benefits, loyalty bonus and exchange bonus. In fact, one can even bargain hard at the dealership to get some additional sweeteners.
