Do you want to purchase a used car but have a tight budget? Are you looking solely at petrol cars to fit your bill? Are your demands specific to Ahmedabad? If your answer is yes, then worry no more, for we shall take care of all your requirements. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be left more perplexed than persuaded by 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 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 onus of sorting the information remains on you, and who wants to land up in heaps of data? Fortunately, we make choosing the ideal car easy and simple 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 23, 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.
The five cars on the list belong to three different manufacturers, which means:
• There is ample variety and competition in this category.
• With three compact cars to its credit, Hyundai emerges as the winner in the three-way showdown.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Honda City V
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 40,890 / List Price: Rs. 485,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 936,999
Why buy: Currently with its first owner, this maroon sedan is an efficient car without being spectacular. Compact features, good long-term durability, spacious interiors and plenty of power make it a worthy contender atop this list.
Recommendation #2: Hyundai Eon Era Plus
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 69,184 / List Price: Rs. 180,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 345,000
Why buy: This grey hatchback comes at a bargain price, and is placed with its first owner. In spite of a high mileage, it is just four years old, which means it will be a reliable bet on the roads of Ahmedabad for a long time to come.
Recommendation #3: Hyundai i10 Era 1.1 IRDE
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 43,945 / List Price: Rs. 225,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 388,000
Why buy: Residing with its first owner, this grey vehicle is a feasible option for a family car, given its good condition and insurance cover. This can also be an ideal solution for buyers caught in a dilemma between cars one and two on this list.
Recommendation #4: Maruti Suzuki Celerio ZXi Opt Amt
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 48,574 / List Price: Rs. 375,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 511,000
Why buy: Equipped with automatic transmission, this petrol first owner car comes in a soothing white colour. With its mileage yet to tick over to the wrong side of 50,000 kilometers and a reasonable price, this remains a dark horse in an intensely competitive compilation.
Recommendation #5: Hyundai Eon Era Plus
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 68,490 / List Price: Rs. 200,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 345,000
Why buy: Continuing the streak of first owner cars, this is another sensible option with a very good balance between price and performance. Not as dynamic as the other four cars, this may not be a favorite, but should still interest a fair amount of buyers.
The interesting thing about this list is that not a single car can be ruled out of contention entirely. A solid top three paves the way for two balanced options to close the list. While Hyundai clearly dominates, Honda’s power and Maruti’s economy also impress. For more such car listings in Ahmedabad, watch this space.
