The reason behind the price hike, both carmakers say, is due to increase in input costs and frequent disruptions in the foreign exchange rate. However, both Nissan and Datsun are offering generous discounts and incentives till the year-end. These include reduced interest rates, free insurance, government employee discount and cash discounts. Although these deals might seem tempting, do keep in mind that it is better to buy a car in the new year as they generally tend to fetch a higher resale value when compared to cars that are a year older in the used car market. Click here for more tips on: Should You Buy A New Car At The End Of The Year?
