Difference between onroad price and ex-showroom price

If you ask me what is the difference between the "on-road price" and "ex-showroom" price, i would say, " Dude! there is f*cking huge difference between on-road price and ex-showroom price if you are considering small budget car."

If you ask someone, "I would like to buy a small car and my budget is 5 lakh."

Many people would suggest go for Hyundai i20, Maruti suzuki swift and etc etc. But let me tell you one thing that with this budget you will get only basic variants of i20 or swift and that is with petrol engine!

Volkswagen Polo vs Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Hyundai i20

When you see Car advertisement like, "starting price 5 lakh only!!" That would be the "EX-SHOWROOM" price of base variant and probably with petrol engine. Diesel cars cost 1 to 1.5 lakh more then their petrol variants. And also the petrol cars are easily available in India while the diesel cars generally have waiting period.

Ex-showroom price is the price which do not include Insurance, "Handling and Logistic charges", RTO registration charges, Extended warranty if any and sometimes the Municipality Road tax! After adding all these you will get ON-ROAD PRICE!

For example,
Hyundai i20 Era Petrol has ex-showroom price of 4.69 lakh.

 469000 [Ex-showroom - Hyundai i20 Era Petrol]
+    5000 [Handling and Logistic charges]
+   14000 [Insurance]
+   27700 [RTO charge]
+    3800 [3 years extended warranty]
+    9400 [Municipality Road tax]
= 528900Onroad price
** Figures are just estimations, may vary with cities and states.

Hyundai i20 Era CRDi Diesel which is base model for i20 diesel would cost you around 6.5 lakh onroad.
