Nine reasons to buy a new car this Navratri

26 October, 2023

Besides celebrations, lavish meals and family get-togethers, the festive season in India is synonymous with new beginnings. Since festivals like Navratri, Dusshera, Dhanteras and Diwali are considered auspicious, many people choose to start new ventures and make big-ticket purchases during this time of the year. And one of the most popular purchases that you often see around this time of the year is private vehicles - cars, in particular. With the right car, your life can become so much easier. You can travel comfortably, wherever and whenever you want!

So, with festivals like Navratri, Dusshera and Diwali on the horizon, here are nine reasons that this is the perfect time to buy your dream car.

  1. Landmark decision

    Buying a car is a milestone for most people. The chances are that you’ve been planning and saving up to buy your dream car since you landed your first job. Or perhaps you want to upgrade from your modest two-wheeler and buy a car that makes travelling comfortable for your growing family. Besides, a car is aspirational and is often viewed as a status symbol. And the festive season is an ideal time to make this expensive purchase by invoking the blessings of the almighty. Here's a guide to help you pick the right car.

  2. Auspicious timing

    It is believed that when you make valuable purchases during this period, you welcome an abundance of good luck and prosperity. The festive months also see many automobile brands offer attractive offers and deals. From complimentary car accessories and gifts to discounted car insurance premiums, you can take advantage of many lucrative offers when you buy a car during Navratri.

  3. Safe travels

    In the wake of the recent pandemic, having your own car that can accommodate your entire family can ensure the safety of your loved ones whenever you have to travel. It can also offer you peace of mind if you have to travel back and forth from work, especially if you have children or elderly persons at home. You can safely travel for holidays and road-trips with a car of your own.

  4. Technological innovations

    Today's cars are equipped with cutting-edge technology and smart features like touch screen navigation, voice-enabled commands, parking assists, push-start buttons, sensor activation, automatic functions and many other advanced features. And the best part is that these features are available in cars across the board - from hatchbacks to sedans and premium SUVs to off-roaders. Hence, now is a great time to purchase your first car or even replace your old car with one that is more in line with the times. Since cars are meant for long-term use, by getting one that is packed with the latest features, you can use it for several years without worrying about it becoming outdated.

  5. Compliance with the latest standards

    As per the new rules issued by the government of India, all cars sold from April 2020 onwards need to be BS-VI compliant. This means that they need to follow the latest emission norms and fuel standards set by the government. And with many fuel stations across the country now dispensing BS-VI fuel, this makes it more important to have the right vehicle. Hence, buying a car that adheres to the latest pollution standards and limits environmental damage can address concerns of declining air quality and increasing pollution levels.

  6. More road trips

    Road trips are seeing a surge. Inter-city and inter-state road trips are becoming popular. So, if you and your family are missing vacationing together, a spacious car can make those short (must-have) getaways a possibility.

  7. Contribute to the economy

    An important effect of exercising your purchasing power during this time will contribute to bringing the country's economy back on track. The auto industry, like many others, has been grappling with challenges brought on by the pandemic in the past couple of years. And your car purchase can contribute to not just to the auto industry but can drive up overall economic growth. Especially considering that during the festive season you also try to help others, your purchase of a new car could go a long way in supporting businesses!

  8. ​Ayudhya Puja

    The Hindu festival of Ayudhya Puja that falls on the last day of Navratri holds special significance. It is a day to express gratitude to all machinery and instruments that are an integral part of your life. It is believed that the reverence of vehicles on Ayudhya Puja brings success and contributes to their longevity. So, this Ayudhya Puja is the one of the most auspicious times to buy a car.
