Compact SUVs are one of the most highly sought-after categories of cars. They are admired because of their dazzling appearance as well as their on-road durability. Have you been looking for used compact SUVs but cannot get the right deal? Is your budget cap placed at 6 lakhs? Are you car hunting specifically in Delhi-NCR? If yes, then this is where you will find the answers to all your questions. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be bombarded with innumerable options on leading car websites. 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 insights. How do you narrow down your options from a plethora of cars? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their series of filters. The onus of sorting the information remains on you, and who wants to be drowning in data? Fortunately, we make choosing your ideal car simple 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 7, 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:
• Ford is miles ahead of the rest of the pack in this category.
• The Ford EcoSport Titanium is this compilation’s most valuable car with four of its variants making it to this list.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Ford EcoSport 1.5 TDCi Titanium
Year: 2017 / Mileage: 22,500 / List Price: Rs. 500,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,002,999
Why buy: Coming in a dashing grey colour and equipped with comprehensive insurance, this first owner SUV runs on diesel and is a gamechanger on a number of counts. Just two years old and having covered very little distance, it has a lot left in the tank. At an economic price and with plenty of power, it has the potential to deliver impeccable performance for a number of years.
Recommendation #2: Ford EcoSport 1.5 Titanium TDCi
Year: 2013 / Mileage: 43,746 / List Price: Rs. 410,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 862,000
Why buy: Just like this list’s topper, this car too comes with comprehensive insurance, belongs to its first owner and runs on diesel. Sporting a sleek silver colour, it has both price and mileage on its side, though its age means a certain amount of wear and tear is possible.
Recommendation #3: Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5L Ti-VCT AT 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 50,352 / List Price: Rs. 500,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 928,999
Why buy: Residing with its first owner, this grey SUV is fueled by petrol and comes with automatic transmission. The most appealing aspect of this car is efficient performance, which combined with a healthy showing on all the major parameters should boost its desirability.
Recommendation #4: Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5L TDCi 2015
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 48,636 / List Price: Rs. 575,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,044,000
Why buy: Powered by diesel, this is another first owner car that is available in grey. With a series of overlapping features with the cars above, what makes this slide down to number four is its hefty mileage and substantially higher price.
Recommendation #5: Ford EcoSport Trend 1.5 L TDCi 2015
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 33,000 / List Price: Rs. 514,500 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 869,999
Why buy: Another spick and span vehicle in this category, this grey SUV is currently placed with its first owner and also runs on diesel. A compact car from all angles, this is more than a reasonable fall back at number five, especially considering its age and mileage.
Although this list effectively becomes a showcase of Ford, that in itself is a validation of how well the manufacturer has been performing in this sector. If you are looking for reasonable and efficient compact SUVs in Delhi-NCR, look no further than the Ford EcoSport. This list should help you nitpick the subtleties and settle which version of Ford EcoSport suits you best.
