There are few types of cars that whet the appetite of car aficionados more than a compact SUV. Are you one of those who has been hunting down a compact SUV for a while? Are you looking for a used vehicle to fit your bill? 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 bombarded with innumerable options on leading car websites. Moreover, their imprecise listings of cars will leave you more confused than convinced. How do you arrive at choosing the perfect car then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their multiple filters. The onus of making sense of all the information remains on you, and who wants to be drowning in data? 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 July 11, 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 rules the roost with five strong and stylish cars.
• Even with just the single manufacturer, you will not get bored of Ford as each variant has something new to offer.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Ford EcoSport 1.5 Titanium Ti VCT AT
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 51,079 / List Price: Rs. 500,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 928,999
Why buy: Equipped with automatic transmission, running on petrol, and currently with its first owner, this is a top draw vehicle that comes in a scintillating white. In spite of being five years old and having covered sufficient distance, it remains a force to be reckoned with due to its impressive durability, making it the A-list car on this compilation.
Recommendation #2: Ford EcoSport 1.5 Titanium Ti VCT
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 42,029 / List Price: Rs. 575,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 827,000
Why buy: Currently placed with its first owner and available with comprehensive insurance, this petrol fueled SUV makes for a striking appearance in a shimmering shade of silver. A balanced price, healthy mileage, and efficient features make this the complete package, a deserving candidate for the second slot.
Recommendation #3: Ford EcoSport 1.5 Trend TDCi
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 72,149 / List Price: Rs. 520,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 817,000
Why buy: Residing with its first owner, this white SUV is a powerful car that comes with comprehensive insurance and runs on diesel. An economic price is an asset, but its substantial mileage combined with its age may rule it out of immediate contention, sliding it down to the middle of this pack.
Recommendation #4: Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5 TDCi
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 21,000 / List Price: Rs. 681,100 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 917,000
Why buy: Sporting an eye catching red colour, this first owner diesel SUV packs quite the punch with an impressive array of features. But whether its relatively hefty price is worth an investment given its strikingly low mileage is the tradeoff that will decide how many buyers are interested in picking this car up.
Recommendation #5: Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5 TDCi
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 71,912 / List Price: Rs. 637,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 917,000
Why buy: In terms of looks, this white SUV is one of the leading cars on this list, complete with leatherette interior furnishing. What pushes it down to the last spot is its record on the odometer as well as its high price, both of which could lead buyers to leave this otherwise fine vehicle out of contention.
In terms of spectacular looks, this has to be one of the most glamorous exhibitions of cars for Bangalore. However, most of these cars have witnessed sufficient road time, which will require consideration as a potential purchaser. While the top two SUVs seem well ahead of the rest of the pack, any of the other three would also make for a sensible bit of business.
