Are you car hunting and need a used but reliable full-size SUV? Do you want cars that have not exceeded 50,000 kilometers on the odometer? Are your demands specific to Mumbai? If your answer is yes, then worry no more, for we have you covered with an exhaustive list that caters to all your requirements.
You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be overwhelmed with countless 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 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 onus of sorting the information remains on you, 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 27, 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.
One-way traffic for Honda here, before an intervention from Toyota, which means:
- These are the companies producing the best cars in this segment.
- The Honda CR-V is the undisputed champion in this compilation, significantly better on most counts than what its Toyota counterpart has to offer.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Honda CR V 2.0 AT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 32,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,580,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 2,300,000
Why buy: Available with automatic transmission, this is a first owner SUV that runs on petrol and is a game-changer in this category. Bold looks, impressive performance, affordable price (considering the segment), and a not-so hefty mileage, look no further than our topper on this list to have your needs met.
Recommendation #2: Honda CR-V 2.0L 2WD AT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 34,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,575,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 2,300,000
Why buy: Another vehicle equipped with automatic transmission, this SUV also comes with insurance cover. Sporting a dazzling red colour, this vehicle runs on petrol and is currently placed with its first owner. With similar numbers to the car placed above, it provides a stiff competition for pole position and is certainly a viable alternative.
Recommendation #3: Honda CR V 2.0L 2WD AT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 30,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,600,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 2,300,000
Why buy: Automatic transmission, comprehensive insurance, a shiny silver look, this car has a lot going for it. Currently with its first owner and fueled by petrol, this too has a lot of kilometers to offer, and notwithstanding a hike in price, should be able to compete with the top two cars on this list.
Recommendation #4: Toyota Fortuner 3.0 4X2 AT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 32,000 / List Price: Rs. 2,053,100 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 2,619,000
Why buy: Also possessing automatic transmission, this silver colored SUV belongs to its first owner and is powered by diesel. With similar mileage figures as the other options on this list and a comparable array of features, it is its substantially higher price that pushes it down to number four on this list.
Recommendation #5: Toyota Fortuner 3.0 4×2 MT
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 44,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,862,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 2,400,000
Why buy: This grey SUV, placed with its first owner, runs on diesel and is the only car featured here not to have automatic transmission. Even then, it is worth consideration, given its immaculate condition, sleek looks, and efficient track record. For those who deem the Fortuner above it to be too pricey, but still wish to side with Toyota, this is the one to pick up.
Mumbai has always been known for its glamour and this is a compilation that is oozing with a set of glamourous vehicles. Full-size SUVs are as much status symbols as they are utility machines, and Honda achieves this balance perfectly through the three cars featured on this list. Toyota, however, offers a different kind of deal, with its Fortuner having an altogether different focus in terms of looks and performance. Brand loyalty may seal the deal for you in this one, with all five options making for sensible purchases.
