The used car market has seen a boom in recent years in India. There are quite a handful of new vehicles that remain out of budget for many but due to depreciation, the price comes down drastically after a few years. Here are five such big butch SUVs by My Country My Ride that you can buy from the used car market and their price is lower than the top-end version of the Honda City, which carries a price tag of Rs 14.07 lakh, ex-showroom which translates into around Rs 16 lakhs, on-road.
Toyota Fortuner 4X2 Automatic
Asking price Rs 14 lakhs
The Toyota Fortuner is the best-selling vehicle in the segment for a long time now. Even the first-generation of the SUV in India was a big success and many prefer the first-generation look of the vehicle over the current one. Here is a 2013 Toyota Fortuner top-end version, which comes with an automatic transmission. It is only 4X2 version and not the 4X4 but that’s what most consumers staying in the cities prefer. Being a diesel vehicle, a Rs 14 lakh price tag, it sure is a great deal.
Land Rover Freelander2
Asking price Rs 12.5 lakhs
The Land Rover has always been a trusted name when it comes to SUVs and many prefer the brand over many other German manufacturers due to its rugged look. Here is a 2011 model of Land Rover Freelander2, which gets all the bells and whistles in place and newly installed tyres. There are a few minor scratches on the bumpers but except for that, the overall condition is quite good too. It also gets an all-black interior, which is easy to maintain. The car comes with a 2.2-litre diesel engine that generates a maximum of 188 Bhp. It also gets an automatic transmission.
Tata Hexa XTA
Asking price Rs 14.9 lakh
The Tata Hexa is one of the most underrated vehicles in the segment. It has a massive road presence and also offers a comfortable ride. The Hexa seen here is the 2017 model and is almost a new car. The car gets captain seats in the rear and has a scratchless body. The Tata Hexa XTA is only available with the 4X2 drivetrain but it gets an automatic transmission. It should be noted that the Hexa has one of the best automatic transmissions in the segment.
Toyota Fortuner 4X4 manual
Asking price Rs 9.75 lakh
Here is another Toyota Fortuner, which is a 2011 model. The car gets an aftermarket Land Cruiser inspired grille but the rest of the vehicle is in stock condition. The diesel engines from Toyota are world-renowned for their reliability and can run for lakhs of kilometres without much problem. Also, the maintenance cost of the Fortuner even after years of usage remains very reasonable.
Toyota Fortuner 4X4 manual
Asking price Rs 9 lakh
Here is the 2010 Toyota Fortuner, which also gets the 4X4 manual set-up. It is priced at Rs 9 lakh, which is cheaper than a brand-new Hyundai Creta. What do you get? A massive road presence, 5+2 seats, and of course, the capability of reaching anywhere with its 4X4 set-up.
