Tired of driving the regular fare of cars like sedans and hatchbacks? Looking for a vehicle to get excited about? Anxious that your budget will be exceeded? How about used mid-size SUVs under 7 lakh that give you the perfect blend of style and substance? This is where you can explore some fantastic options of used mid-size SUVs, curated specifically for Delhi-NCR. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be left more confused than convinced 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 the best deal. 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 sorting the information remains on you, and who wants to be digging a data mine? Fortunately, we save you from the hassles of drowning in data 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.
All the cars on the list belong to the same manufacturer, which means:
• Mahindra has a bonanza in this segment with five powerful cars.
• The Mahindra Scorpio is this category’s most valuable vehicle even if it may not be the top ranked one.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Mahindra XUV 500 W6 4X2
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 46,156 / List Price: Rs. 690,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,209,331
Why buy: Available in a soothing shade of silver, this first owner SUV runs on diesel and is a clear winner in this category thanks to its power, pace, and precision. Five years of age and a mileage close to 50,000 kilometers may seem like potential concerns, but given this vehicle’s prowess and endurability, they should be nothing more than minor hiccups to contend with.
Recommendation #2: Mahindra Scorpio SLE BS IV
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 40,758 / List Price: Rs. 550,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 983,268
Why buy: Another first owner vehicle fueled by diesel, this car comes in a milky white colour and has the classic Scorpio swagger. An economic price, healthy mileage, and efficient performance add further feathers to its cap as it challenges the first car on this list for your undivided attention.
Recommendation #3: Mahindra Scorpio SLE BS IV
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 32,000 / List Price: Rs. 585,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 983,268
Why buy: Residing with its second owner, this black diesel SUV is a feasible option for a family car, given its excellent condition and dependable performance. Mileage and price are both favorable, with insurance security further boosting this car’s suitability.
Recommendation #4: Mahindra Scorpio SLE BS IV
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 21,070 / List Price: Rs. 600,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 93,268
Why buy: Just like the second car on this list, this vehicle, too, is placed with its first owner, runs on diesel and sports a milky white appearance. But compared to its namesakes in places two and three, this has the distinct advantage of having had far less on road time. Its freshness, however, may be nullified in the eyes of some customers given its relatively steep price.
Recommendation #5: Mahindra Scorpio SLE BS III
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 45,000 / List Price: Rs. 630,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 983,268
Why buy: Another spick and span vehicle in this category, this white SUV is also a first owner car, and is powered by diesel. What puts it at the bottom of the pack despite its decent condition and similar array of features is its relatively high price and mileage, especially compared to the vehicles featured here that are in better condition.
Mid-size SUVs in Delhi-NCR are in high demand all year around. Getting any of these five deals would represent a piece of shrewd business. While the top three options are matched closely in this compilation, the overall consistency of Mahindra in the SUV segment is the most enduring takeaway from this list.
