Buying a car? Here are some attractive offers!

One of the world's fastest growing automotive industries has hit an all-time low. The Indian auto industry, which sold a total of 2,13,362 units in February 2012, has dropped down to a figure of 1,58,513 units in the same month this year.

The massive drop of 25.7% that the month of February has brought over the market is being claimed by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) to be the worst since the notorious 40% drop that the industry had to go through back in December 2000.

What makes the situation even worse is the fact that even the future does not seem to be very bright for the Indian car bazaar for 2013, as predicted by SIAM.

So, it is in this dull and gloomy scenario that the automakers have decided to bring forward some very interesting and extremely profitable schemes, discounts and offers for the Indian buyers.

Be it Maruti, Mahindra, Tata or Skoda, everybody is set upon clocking in some respectable sales for March even if it means that they have to think up some pretty wild schemes.

Here are the four most eye-catching offers from some of the most prominent brands...
