Are you on the lookout for used mid-size SUVs that can be of value? Is your budget limited to 10 lakhs? Are your demands specific to Pune? If yes, then you are at 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 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 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 burdened with 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 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.
All the cars on the list come from two manufacturers, which means:
- Mahindra and Hyundai dominate proceedings, with the former having three of its products here.
- The Mahindra XUV is the stand out vehicle in this segment, with all of its three variants performing impressively.
Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
Recommendation #1: Mahindra XUV 500 W8
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 22,091 / List Price: Rs. 895,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,563,000
Why buy: Available in a soothing silver, this is powered by diesel and currently belongs to its first owner. Impressive looks, excellent on road performance, a balanced price for this segment, and a light toll on the odometer, all make this the clear favorite in this category.
Recommendation #2: Mahindra XUV500 W4
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 36,000 / List Price: Rs. 710,500 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,265,000
Why buy: Black always adds a touch of class to an SUV, and this one is no different, sporting a colour that is bound to grab attention. Currently placed with its first owner and running on diesel, it has overlapping features with the car at the top of this list, and with a significantly lesser price, can be the perfect alternative, too.
Recommendation #3: Mahindra XUV500 W6 2WD
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 35,999 / List Price: Rs. 825,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,399,000
Why buy: Available in a mellow silver look, this first owner vehicle is also fueled by diesel and comes with a comprehensive insurance. A good balance between price and mileage makes it an appealing option in the middle of this list, a purchase that assures you of sustained power and performance.
Recommendation #4: Hyundai Creta 1.6 SX+ Petrol
Year: 2016 / Mileage: 48,000 / List Price: Rs. 833,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,195,000
Why buy: In spite of covering almost 50,000 kilometers, this remains a relatively fresh car given its age, which makes its price understandable. A first owner car, this comes in a milky white colour and definitely adds to the style quotient. A sensible purchase that can be a feasible option for the foreseeable future.
Recommendation #5: Mahindra Scorpio LX 4WD BS IV
Year: 2014 / Mileage: 74,000 / List Price: Rs. 625,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs. 1,002,401
Why buy: Scorpios have long been a consumer favorite and it is only fitting that we round off this list with one. For different reasons, two things stand out about this petrol first owner vehicle. First, its mileage is considerable, which might deter potential buyers, but a redeeming feature is its second noticeable aspect, a modest price that is significantly lower than any other option on this list. If you are looking for an SUV to last you for a couple of years without thinking too much about the long haul, this may be what you are looking for.
Mahindra pips Hyundai in this tightly fought contest. This list caters to different consumer demands from price to efficiency to performance. The Mahindra XUV range has, undoubtedly, the best deals to offer, but the other two candidates also stake a claim with their wide array of features.
