Are you looking for a used compact sedan but have budgetary constraints? Is your budget cap 5 lakh? Do you also have to factor in your mileage wishes? Are your demands specific to Ahmedabad? If yes, then worry no more, for we have you covered with a curated compilation for all your requirements.
You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be bombarded with innumerable options on leading car websites. Moreover, they will have listings of cars that have not been neatly sorted, and hence cannot provide you with meaningful insights. What should be your approach in that case? The several filters on used car websites rarely provide useful information. The onus of making sense of the data remains on you, and who wants to be swamped with so much work? Fortunately, we let you sit back and relax while choosing your perfect car 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 July 8, 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.
This list goes back and forth between Ford and Honda, which means:
• Both manufacturers have a lot of offer here, which is bound to make car lovers excited.
• While Ford prioritizes swashbuckling looks and power-driven performance, the more sedate Honda cars are high on efficient service.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Ford Aspire Trend 1.5 TDCi
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 43,000 / List Price: Rs. 439,200 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 716,000
Why buy: Available in a dazzling white, this vehicle is currently placed with its first owner and runs on diesel. Combining power with precision, and an economic price with proven durability, this is a spectacular option that should convince most buyers en route to their garage.
Recommendation #2: Honda Amaze S i-DTEC
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 20,000 / List Price: Rs. 470,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 706,000
Why buy: Currently located with its second owner, what stands out about this car, apart from its sleek white look, is its paltry mileage. This may be five years old, but it could easily have another five left in the tank. Running on diesel, this may be considerably costlier than the first car on this list, but could turn out to be just as sensible a buy given its excellent efficiency.
Recommendation #3: Ford Aspire Ambiente 1.2 Ti-VCT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 39,000 / List Price: Rs. 400,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 571,000
Why buy: Residing with its first owner, this red sedan is one of the most powerful options in this category. Relatively fresh with a modest price range, this stacks up favorably to both its predecessors on this compilation. Fueled by petrol, this should be a smart deal for most customers.
Recommendation #4: Honda Amaze 1.5 SX i-DTEC
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 47,000 / List Price: Rs. 480,200 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 748,000
Why buy: Another first owner car that runs on diesel and comes in white, this vehicle fits in neatly with an established pattern on this list. The downsides to this car are two- its inflated price and substantial mileage, both of which combine to slide this into the penultimate spot.
Recommendation #5: Honda Amaze 1.2 S i-VTEC
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 41,000 / List Price: Rs. 445,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 595,000
Why buy: Running on petrol, this first owner sedan presents a curious case. Sporting a simple yet sophisticated white, it hovers on the periphery of affordability, both in terms of price and mileage, making it an outside contender for your needs should you be displeased with the top three.
The Ford Aspire and the Honda Amaze are the ones to watch out for in this segment. While brand loyalty can determine which car you eventually settle for, in terms of objective parameters, it is Ford that has a slight edge over its competitor in Honda in this part of the market.
