Do you want to purchase a used mid-size SUV but cannot get a favorable deal? Are you looking solely at cars below 8 lakhs? Are your demands specific to Delhi-NCR? If yes, then this is the one stop destination for all your requirements. 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 precisely sorted, and hence are not in a position to give you the best deal. How do you arrive at getting the ideal car then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their vast array of filters. The unenviable task of sorting the information remains on you, 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 July 27, 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 gets to have the cake and eat it, too, as far as this collection is concerned.
• The Mahindra XUV is in a league of its own, a dream car for this segment.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Mahindra XUV 500 W6 4X2
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 54,439 / List Price: Rs. 650,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,274,000
Why buy: Running on diesel and currently placed with its first owner, this car comes in a scintillating black colour and is definitely an attention grabber. With a competitive price, reasonable age and mileage, and plenty of oomph to complement its efficiency, this is a deserving occupant of pole position.
Recommendation #2: Mahindra XUV 500 W6 4X2
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 58,928 / List Price: Rs. 500,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,209,331
Why buy: Residing with its fourth owner, this diesel SUV has a number of overlapping features with the first car and sports a mellow white colour. Higher mileage and higher age stack up unfavorably for this vehicle against the first option, but a significant drop in price could give this one the edge in the eyes of many buyers.
Recommendation #3: Mahindra XUV 500 W8 FWD
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 54,246 / List Price: Rs. 614,880 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,335,000
Why buy: Currently with its second owner, this is another SUV that is powered by diesel. Available in a dazzling shade of silver, it is consistent on most of the parameters, and is certainly one of the most bankable cars in this compilation.
Recommendation #4: Mahindra XUV 500 W8 FWD
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 62,484 / List Price: Rs. 750,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,448,000
Why buy: Another diesel SUV, this time placed with its first owner, this car does have some amount of wear and tear owing to the distance covered. Barring that, it is the dicey combination of price and mileage that can put off some buyers otherwise interested in this fine vehicle.
Recommendation #5: Mahindra Scorpio VLX 4WD Airbag AT BS IV 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 62,500 / List Price: Rs. 625,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,245,000
Why buy: Equipped with an automatic transmission and an excellent brake and suspension performance, this second owner diesel car is a feasible option for buyers, even though it takes the bottom spot. Age, mileage, and price are not the most lucrative for this car, but a sophisticated white look and an efficient on road performance still makes it a sensible option for potential purchasers.
Studded with one impressive car after another, this list spoils its buyers with a problem of plenty. The final decision of selecting which car makes it to your garage will come down to fine margins, such as passenger comfort or shade of colour, or marginally better mileage.
