Mid-size SUVs combine power with proficiency and are one of the most desirable categories of cars in the Delhi-NCR market. Have you been considering the purchase of a used mid-size SUV in the Delhi-NCR region? Do you not want to exceed 7 lakhs? If yes, then this is the one stop destination 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 the best deal. How do you arrive at making the right decision then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their vast array of filters. The onus of sorting 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 August 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.
Maruti makes the early inroads before Mahindra takes charge towards the end, which means:
• Both manufacturers have what it takes to last long in this race.
• The Mahindra XUV500 is the most valuable car in this category.

Recommendation #5: 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 SUV that runs on diesel, this car comes in a soothing white colour and definitely leaves a lasting impression with its appearance. Complementing its looks are its extensive features and a healthy price and mileage ratio, ensuring that the bottom car on this list has the potential to upstage those that come before it.
It is difficult for any SUV to put up a strong fight against the Mahindra XUV, but Mahindra’s Scorpio makes a good fist of it. All five cars in this collection have a fantastic balance between price and utility, which means that as a buyer, you are definitely spoiled for choice.
