MPVs are among the privileged breed of cars that function as a status symbol besides providing comfort and stability on the road. As one of the highest performing cars in the MPV segment, the Toyota Innova is naturally a sought after vehicle. Do you wish to add a used Innova to your collection of cars but cannot find the right deal? Are your requirements specific to Mumbai? If yes, then you have come to the right place, 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 subject to a plethora of recommendations 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 decide which car suits you then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their whole host of filters. The task of making sense of the information is still yours, and who wants to handle so much 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 21, 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 Innova sails smoothly along in the MPV segment, which means:
• As always, there is a good balance between price and utility.
• Despite all five cars recording a fair amount of distance on the odometer, they remain wise options for the long run owing to their durability.

Why buy: Protected with comprehensive insurance, this second owner diesel car is available in a sophisticated shade of silver.

Year: 2014 / Mileage: 45,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,100,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,467,000
Why buy: With an excellent brake and suspension performance, this grey MPV belongs to its first owner and is a solid candidate in at number four.

Year: 2016 / Mileage: 52,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,1750,00 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,391,000
