The Maruti Suzuki Swift is among the top-selling hatchbacks in India. Prices for the Swift start from Rs. 5.67 lakhs for the base LXi variant and go all the way up to Rs. 10.12 lakhs for the top-end variant (both on-road, Delhi). For that price, Maruti offers a stylish hatchback with seating capacity for 5 and fuel-efficient engines. However, for the same price or even less, you can also get a luxury car like the BMW 3-Series in your garage. The black BMW 3-Series featured here is one such example which can be had yours for just Rs. 7.99 lakhs.
This BMW 3-Series is a 2012 made model and is up for sale in Mumbai. It is available in Mumbai and going by the images, the sedan seems to be in a decent condition. It is the 320D corporate variant that is powered by a 2-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine. This engine churns out around 156 Bhp of power and comes mated to an automatic transmission on this car.
As for the odometer reading, this BMW 3-Series has covered around 66,000 km till now according to its seller. The car is with its third owner and full-service history of the vehicle is available on request. When buying a used car, always insist on seeing the service history of the car as that reveals if the car has suffered any major damage including accidents or flood water damage.
The interiors of this 3-Series also seem to be quite neat and tidy. The beige and black cabin theme looks pretty good and gives a luxurious ambience to the interiors. Being a BMW car, it comes loaded with features and despite being nearly a 7-8 years old car, it is much better equipped than the Maruti Suzuki Swift. The seating space and boot space is another plus as the 3-Series can easily accommodate 5 passengers and can gobble up a big load of luggage in its trunk.
However, do know that the maintenance and spare part costs of this car will be substantially higher than that of a Maruti Suzuki Swift. Therefore, only go for the deal if you are ready to spend a decent sum on the maintenance and running of this car. Further, spare parts for this car will also cost a lot so that is another aspect to keep in mind. Being a Mumbai based car, also make sure to get it checked for any water damage. All in all, this used BMW 3-Series is a decent deal for those who have a budget of around Rs. 8-9 lakhs and don’t have any issues with buying a premium used car.
