Are you looking for used premium hatchbacks but have budgetary constraints? Is 5 lakh the most you are willing to spend? Are your demands specific to Pune? If your answer is yes, then worry no more, for we have you covered with a comprehensive list for your requirements.
You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs leading car websites will leave you with too much on your plate. 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 task of making sense of the information is still yours, 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 the 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 June 25, 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.
Two manufacturers feature on this list, with Hyundai dominating, which means:
- Competition is little to non-existent, it is effectively a Hyundai exhibition.
- The Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz is the car to keep a keen eye on in this segment.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Hyundai Grand i10 Asta 1.2 Kappa VTVT (O)
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 45,000 / List Price: Rs. 369,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 640,000
Why buy: Currently with its third owner, this petrol premium hatchback sports an immaculate white and is in terrific condition. Yet to tick over to the wrong side of 50,000 kilometers on the odometer, this vehicle will give you guaranteed efficiency, reliable on road performance, and smart looks, culminating in a complete package worthy to top our list.
Recommendation #2: Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz 1.2 Kappa VTVT
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 17,500 / List Price: Rs. 375,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 613,000
Why buy: Another car which comes in a dazzling white, this is a first owner car, fueled by petrol. Its paltry distance covered is enough proof that it has plenty of years left in the tank, while its middle of the range price should not be a deterrent for potential buyers. A compact fit for second spot on this list.
Recommendation #3: Ford Figo 1.2P TREND MT
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 15,112 / List Price: Rs. 410,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 592,000
Why buy: Available in a stunning shade of silver, this is also with its first owner and runs on petrol. Given its age and mileage, it is virtually semi-new, which means that buyers should not shy away from paying the relatively higher price. Arguably the strongest car on this compilation, this would make for a bold yet sensible purchase.
Recommendation #4: Hyundai Grand i10 Sportz
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 35,852 / List Price: Rs. 400,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 611,000
Why buy: Armed with comprehensive insurance, this vehicle belongs to its first owner currently, is powered by petrol, and comes in a sophisticated shade of grey. Not the most spectacular option on the list, this still has enough attractive features and a good balance between price and utility to land up in your garage.
Recommendation #5: Hyundai i20 2015-2017 1.2 Asta
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 19,000 / List Price: Rs. 475,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 720,000
Why buy: Also, with full insurance and in a debonair grey, this first owner petrol vehicle rounds off our list. Notwithstanding its freshness on the road, its price sends it spiraling down our compilation. But should you be looking to spend a little more for a car that is assured to last another four to five years, this one might just be what you are looking for.
Ford has a very solid car on this list, which will definitely make for a smart buy, but only if you are not tempted by the bevy of options from Hyundai. Structurally and performance wise, the Hyundai Grand i10 is a car that should suit Pune, a fact reflected in this list. With a number of attractive looking cars backed up by consistent performance, the ball is in your court as you make up your mind on which one to take home.
