The used car market is a double-edged sword. You can get the best of the cars at the best rates but at the same time, things can go way south than you ever wondered. The idea of owning a good car at a fraction of its original price is tempting and if treated with caution, the path is not bad at all. Among the most sought after car brands in the used luxury market are the Holy Trinity from Germany, i.e., Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW. However, even in the used car market, they can be quite expensive most of the times. For the same, here are three luxury saloons from each brand mentioned above that can be had yours for even lesser than the base model of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire. Check out the video below by My Country My Ride, to watch the cars in full glory.
To let you know, the base LXi variant of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire retails at 5.69 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). All three cars here cost much less than that and are proper luxury saloons. The original price for these German beauties was in the range of Rs. 40-50 lakhs but are now available at a fraction of that price. However, the maintenance and running cost of these cars will be much higher than the Dzire. Therefore, if you plan to keep your running costs low, buying a used Mercedes or any such car is not recommended. With this, let’s move on and know the details of these cars.
Asking price – Rs. 5.25 lakh
The BMW 5-Series here is the E60 generation model, which is among the most controversial 5-series ever due to its love it or hate it design. The one here was registered in 2007 and is the 525d variant. It is a diesel powered model and has completed 96,064 km according to the video. Talking about the diesel engine, it is a 2,993cc straight-six unit that churns out around 195 Bhp of power along with 400 Nm of torque. Being a 5-Series, it comes with all kinds of creature comforts on the inside you could ask for. Draped in all black, it looks pretty well maintained too. Despite being a 2007 made car, this 5-Series does not feel much outdated and in fact, for the asking price, it is a steal deal.
Asking price – Rs. 4.90 lakh
Next is the Audi A6, which is available at for Rs. 4.90 lakh. The A6 here is a 2006 model which makes it around 12 to 13 years old. Compared to the BMW 5-series above, this A6 feels a bit old fashioned. The exterior design is pretty plain and has an understated luxury feel around it. the interiors of the car are all built from high-quality materials. However, it is again a bit short on features and may look a bit dated when compared to the Beemer above. It has been priced appropriately though and has an odo reading of about 59,000 km according to the video. It is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine that produced around 290 Bhp of power and near about 440 Nm of torque. At that asking price, it is even cheaper than the base model Maruti Suzuki Swift, which makes it an alluring deal.
Asking price – Rs. 3.40 lakh
Last on the list and also the most affordable one, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class here is probably the most popular car among the three here. That is because of its signature twin pod front headlights, which made it a sort of an icon back in the day. The one here is a 2005 made model and E200 K model. According to the video, the odometer reading of this E-Class is about 93,000 km, which is not much considering it is a 2005 made model. The E-Series E200 is powered by a 1.8-litre petrol engine that churns out 156 Bhp along with 221 Nm of torque. It has an asking price of Rs. 3.40 lakh, which is the best you can get even if its quite an old model. The condition of the car seems alright in the video too.
