When it comes to SUVs, the classic Mahindra Scorpio takes the cake more often than not. Performing at the top for several years, the Scorpio has what it takes to keep buyers hooked. Have you been considering the purchase of a used Mahindra Scorpio? Are you looking for cars specifically in Kolkata? If yes, then worry no more, for we have you covered with a comprehensive list for your requirements. You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be left more perplexed than persuaded by 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 right deals. How do you settle on which car to buy then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their never-ending filters. The onus of sorting the information remains on you, and who wants to be drowning in data? Fortunately, we make things easy and 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 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. Meanwhile, check out our Mahindra Scorpio: Used Car Buyers’ Guide for great, comprehensive advice on buying one right!
The Mahindra Scorpio goes through the gears in trademark fashion in this list, which means:
• Five cars with a feasible balance between price and utility.
• Mileage may be on the higher side, but durability will see all of these cars through.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Mahindra Scorpio VLX 4WD Airbag AT BS IV 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 53,387 / List Price: Rs. 750,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,245,000
Why buy: Currently placed with its first owner, this white SUV runs on diesel and is a powerful car with remarkable endurance. With a healthy price for a car of this caliber and an acceptable mileage, this is a rock-solid beginning to this power packed list.
Recommendation #2: Mahindra Scorpio VLX 4WD BS IV 2014
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 42,000 / List Price: Rs. 759,500 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,245,000
Why buy: Another white SUV that runs on diesel, this first owner vehicle offers a very similar package to the car above it. With a fractionally higher price and a significant dip in mileage from the top car, and almost identical performance attributes, this car will definitely pose a stiff challenge to this list’s topper.
Recommendation #3: Mahindra Scorpio S10 2016
Year: 2016/ Mileage: 52,000 / List Price: Rs. 1,029,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,329,000
Why buy: Running on diesel, this car also belongs to its first owner and comes in a soothing grey colour. At just three years old, it still has plenty of great years of service in store. Robust on the road and comfortable for passengers, the only deterrent to purchasing this car is its steep price.
Recommendation #4: Mahindra Scorpio S10 7-Seater
Year: 2015 / Mileage: 46,016 / List Price: Rs. 925,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,263,000
Why buy: Available in a dazzling regal blue colour, this SUV comes with killer looks and impressive performance figures. At a cheaper price than the car above it, this is an excellent fallback option, and might even pip some of the higher rated cars to a spot in your garage.
Recommendation #5: Mahindra Scorpio Mahindra Scorpio S10 7-Seater
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 43,240 / List Price: Rs. 1,050,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,329,000
Why buy: Making it five out of five for diesel first owner cars in this segment, this SUV comes in a diamond white colour and is perhaps the most elegant option on this list. At just three years of age and with the least mileage of all the cars present here, this is a scintillating choice to round off this collection, albeit the fact that you have to pay a heavy price for it.
In terms of SUVs, the Mahindra Scorpio has enjoyed an incredible run at the market for a number of years. This compilation is further proof of that track record. While the top two cars should grab the lion’s share of attention, the other alternatives cannot be ruled out in what is a fiercely competitive list.
