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 26, 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 Toyota Corolla Altis once again lives up to its top billing, which means:
• Five cars that offer great value for money in the long run.
• Substance is not sacrificed at the altar of style, with an impressive balance between both reflected in all the options.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Toyota Corolla Altis G MT 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 53,000 / List Price: Rs. 857,500 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,374,000
Currently with its first owner, this petrol sedan comes in white and is a top-notch car to get the ball rolling on this list. Five years of age and substantial mileage might lead some buyers to be skeptical, but this vehicle is not only smooth but has impressive endurance, making it a worthwhile investment at the top of the pack.
Recommendation #2: Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 VL AT 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 15,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,028,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,638,000
Why buy: Equipped with automatic transmission, designed with comprehensive insurance and embellished with leatherette interior furnishing, this first owner petrol sedan is a stand out car from every possible aspect. With an excellent brake and suspension performance as well as a paltry mileage, this vehicle is bound to shoot right to the top of your shopping list, if you are willing to meet its inflated price.
Recommendation #3: Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 G 2016
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 30,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,078,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,458,000
Why buy: Residing with its first owner, this silver sedan is a feasible option for a family car, given its good condition, reliable performance and reasonable mileage. This can also be an ideal solution for buyers caught in a dilemma between cars one and two on this list unless they are thrown off by its price.
Recommendation #4: Toyota Corolla Altis JS 2015
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 35,664 / List Price: Rs. 875,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,306,000
Why buy: Armed with insurance and available with leatherette interior furnishing, this petrol first owner sedan comes in a mellow white colour. With middle of the range features and a relatively modest price, this is a solid if not spectacular option at the fag end of this compilation.
Recommendation #5: Toyota Corolla Altis 1.8 J 2015
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 45,000 / List Price: Rs. 931,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,393,000
Why buy: Currently placed with its first owner and fueled by petrol, this first owner sedan comes in a neat silver look and is provided with leather interior furnishing. A suspect brake and suspension record and a high price and mileage ratio slide it down to the bottom spot on this list notwithstanding its other impressive features.
The Corolla Altis has long been one of the most remarkable performers in the used sedan segment, and this list is a reaffirmation of that. The top two cars seem to be in a league of their own, but for buyers with deep pockets, more options become realistic, giving this list intrigue and depth from a consumer’s point of view.
