The busy and chaotic roads of Kolkata demand a car that is powerful, fuel efficient and capable of a lot of exertion. Considering these factors, diesel cars are often the best bet. Have you been looking for used diesel cars in Kolkata? Do you not want to overshoot 3 lakh with your purchase? If yes, then here is presenting five of the best deals for diesel cars in Kolkata, tailor made for your requirements. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be bombarded with a whole host of options on 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 meaningful insights. How do you arrive at choosing the perfect car then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their multiple filters. The task of sorting the information is still yours, and who wants to be digging a data mine? 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 7, 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.
It is a three way contest for your attention on this list, which means:
