Are you on the lookout for a used hatchback that guarantees both economy and efficiency? Is your car budget under 3 lakhs? Are your needs specific to Hyderabad? If your answer is yes, then worry no more, for we shall cater to all your requirements. Your specific demands will be met with innumerable options and an ocean of confusion on leading car websites. Moreover, they will have listings of cars that have not been precisely sorted, and hence are not in a position to give you the best deal. How do you decide the best deal then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their multiple filters. The task of making sense of the data is still yours, and who wants to be burdened with piles of unsorted 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 10, 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.
There is simply no catching Hyundai in this segment, which means:
• Economy and efficiency are both in abundant supply from Hyundai.
• Hyundai Eon is the big winner in this part of the market, delivering five strong variants, none of which is unworthy of being featured.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Hyundai Eon D-Lite Plus
Year: 2018 / Mileage: 72,000 / List Price: Rs. 265,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 368,000
Why buy: Equipped with insurance, this car is currently placed with its first owner and runs on petrol. Sporting a no-nonsense look in white, this car is just a year old, though it has covered substantial distance in that time. Its affordable price and excellent condition are its biggest drawing points, and should be enough to seal the deal for most buyers on the market.
Recommendation #2: Hyundai Eon Era +
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 72,000 / List Price: Rs. 259,700 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 364,000
Why buy: This white hatchback may have seen a fair bit of road time, but it is still in impeccable condition, and with its first owner. Armed with an insurance copy and a copy of RC this car is known for an impeccable brake and suspension performance, and should give the car in top spot a run for its money.
Recommendation #3: Hyundai Eon D-Lite +
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 13,423 / List Price: Rs. 284,200 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 349,000
Why buy: In many ways, this blue hatchback, which is placed with its first owner and runs on petrol, combines the best features of the top two cars. This means that not only does it become a contender for your attention on this list, but with a virtually semi-new condition, manages to convince most buyers that its relatively higher price is worth the investment.
Recommendation #4: Hyundai Eon Magna Plus
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 33,755 / List Price: Rs. 290,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 376,000
Why buy: Available in a cherry red colour that certainly commands attention, this is a decent middle of the range option. Situated with its second owner, running on petrol and armed with insurance, this will make for a sensible purchase even if it puts you on the brink of your budget.
Recommendation #5: Hyundai Eon Sportz
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 68,898 / List Price: Rs. 300,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 404,000
Why buy: Sporting a dazzling shade of blue, this is one of the most powerful vehicles in this segment. Its compactness and durability mean that it is a worthy option, but its inflated price and considerable mileage might be sufficient deterrents, relegating it to the bottom of this pack.
