The used car market has been growing by leaps and folds over the last few years in India. With the availability of more and more international auto manufacturers in the country, a lot of people are now going for high-end cars through the used car route which they would have otherwise not been able to afford. If you also want to own a better vehicle at much lower prices than its original value, hitting the used car market is the best option. The best thing about used cars is that they can be sold off after a relatively short term use and their value does not depreciate as much a new car’s value depreciates.
So if you have a budget of around Rs. 5 lakhs and want to buy a large sedan or an SUV, here are 5 such cars for you. All of them are powered by diesel engines and come equipped with an automatic gearbox, which is an ideal combination for a lot of people. These cars are being sold by Molecule Cars Inc. in Mumbai and you can contact them directly via the Facebook link above. You can also visit their website for more information by clicking here.
