Compact SUVs are quite the rage in the used car market, and understandably so, given the wealth of features this category of cars provides. Are you looking for used compact SUVs but do not wish to overshoot 7 lakhs? Are your demands specific to Bangalore? If your answer is yes, then worry no more, for we have you covered with a comprehensive list for your requirements. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be left more perplexed than persuaded by leading car websites. Moreover, they will have listings of cars that have not been neatly sorted, and hence are not in a position to give you the best deal. How do you arrive at choosing the perfect car then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their broad array of filters. The onus of making sense of the information remains on you, and who wants to perform such an onerous task? Fortunately, we have got just the right solution for you through the Cartoq TRUE PRICE.
By deploying the Cartoq TRUE PRICE, we help you identify the best deals. The Cartoq Data Science team has built a Machine Learning model that estimates the TRUE PRICE of a used car, after accounting for all sorts of variables – brand, model, age, mileage, and car type. With all factors accounted for, the model predicts the TRUE PRICE, which then becomes the basis of comparison across cars. The best deals are those where listed price is lower than the TRUE PRICE. So, we scan through the car listings across major used car sites, compute their TRUE PRICE, and present the best deals for you.
The shortlist for this article was based on the analysis we ran on August 9, 2019; so, by the time you read this article, there is a good chance that the specific car may no longer be available. However, this list still provides plenty of useful pointers even if certain specific cars have already been sold out.
All the cars on the list belong to the same manufacturer, which means:
• Ford once again asserts its dominance in the SUV category.
• Different variants of the Ford EcoSport are linked by one uniform thread- all offer a great value for money.
