Best Premium Hatchbacks in the used car space for under 4 lakhs In Mumbai from CarToq True Price

Premium Hatchbacks are perfect for the stop-go city traffic, deliver good fuel efficiency, and handle and ride well on most but the really bad roads. They currently range between Rs 5,50,000 – Rs 10,00,000 on the new car market. The used Premium Hatchbacks car is an ideal buy for those wanting something more than just a basic set of wheels; good ride, seating for 5 and more features including safety kit–all for price that is less than you’d pay for a entry-level hatchback. The two segment leaders from Maruti, Swift and Baleno offer a good balance between price, performance, efficiency and features, and so, if your budget allows, then these should be high up on your list. If you crave something that would stand out, then there is excellent duo of VW Polo and Honda Jazz.

Premium Hatchbacks used car prices average around Rs 325,000 in Mumbai with lower price tending to be around Rs 276,000 and the upper end price tending to be around Rs 365,000. The higher end of the used car price range will get you I20 which is 8 years old while if you veer towards the minimum, then you will have to contend with MICRA which is 4 years old. So, what should you go for? Which are the best premium hatchbacks car deals available in the market if your budget is limited to Rs. 4 lakh?

Recommendation #3: Maruti Suzuki Swift ZXi

Best Premium Hatchbacks in the used car space for under 4 lakhs In Mumbai from CarToq True Price

Year: 2013 / Kms Driven: 64,742 / List Price: Rs 330,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 595,053

This entry, which comes at a discount of 45% to its original price is 6 years old and has done 64,742 Kms. This petrol-powered, SWIFT is currently with its first owner.  You will still be able to buy a 2nd gen but do remember that the rear seat space is tight and the boot is tiny. But if you are single or a small family, you could get some very good deals if you go five and more years back. While it should run trouble-free for at least 1 lakh km, we still recommend that you have the car inspected by a competent mechanic with a particular focus on suspension. The Maruti Swift has largely been a trouble free car, even in the long run. That said, a few models made in Oct’13 had problems with the steering column and the batch in 2014 had issues in terms of fuel leakage into the cabin. Cars with high odo reading must be checked for proper working of the suspension. If you are opting for a diesel one, make sure the exhaust doesn’t throw out black smoke under acceleration.

Recommendation #5: Maruti Suzuki Swift ZXi

Best Premium Hatchbacks in the used car space for under 4 lakhs In Mumbai from CarToq True Price

Year: 2012 / Kms Driven: 53,757 / List Price: Rs 310,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 580,347

This entry, which comes at a discount of 47% to its original price is 7 years old and has done 53,757 Kms. Currently with its second owner, this coloured SWIFT comes with a petrol powerplant. You will still be able to buy a 2nd gen but do remember that the rear seat space is tight and the boot is tiny. But if you are single or a small family, you could get some very good deals if you go five and more years back. There might be some wear and tear-clutch plates or brake pads-neither would cost much. The tyres too might be reaching end of their life if the car is nearer to 60,000 km, so you need to factor that spend in your purchase.. The Maruti Swift has largely been a trouble free car, even in the long run. That said, a few models made in Oct’13 had problems with the steering column and the batch in 2014 had issues in terms of fuel leakage into the cabin. Cars with high odo reading must be checked for proper working of the suspension. If you are opting for a diesel one, make sure the exhaust doesn’t throw out black smoke under acceleration.
