However, below provided are the list of top 5 used SUV’s which you can buy without having a second thought or doubt in mind. These are the list of SUV’s you should consider while looking for a used car under 5 lakh rupees.
1. Ford EcoSport:
Make Year: 2015 onwards
New Cars price: Rs. 8.8 lakh onwards
There is no doubt in the fact that the Ford Ecosport still remains the first choice for many who look for a compact SUV. Ford has never ignored this car in India and thus has provided plenty of facelifts and updates to the SUV. It is not an old car which has been in the Indian market for a long time and thus it won’t be too hard to find a good condition used SUV under 5 Lakh rupees.
Both the petrol and diesel engines of the Ecosport are tried and tested units. Both the 1.5 Liter petrol and diesel units are powerful units and also promise to offer impressive fuel efficiency figures as well at the same time. The Ecosport is no doubt a very capable compact SUV which offers solid build quality and plenty of features inside the cabin as well. All these features make this SUV a worthy choice if you are looking for a second-hand SUV under 5 Lakh rupees.
2. Renault Duster
Make Year: 2014 onwards
New Car Price: Rs. 9.05 lakh onward
Just like the Ecosport the Renault Duster is also another SUV which you cannot ignore. This SUV definitely attracted a lot of attention when it was initially launched in the Indian market. This SUV ruled the segment for a long time until and unless its competition started catching up.
Later because of its worthy rivals the popularity of the SUV slowly started to fade away and which also lowered its resale value by some amount. The diesel variant of the Duster is available in two states of tune one with 85 Ps while the more powerful one is available in 105 ps state of tune.
The Renault Duster provides ample space inside and also has high build and finish quality which is definitely a plus point for this SUV. The good thing is that the SUV is also available with a 4X4 option as well; unfortunately, you have to spend more money in getting your hands on one though. The cabin might not offer plenty of creature comforts and looks pretty basic but like we already mentioned above it surely offers robust build quality.
3. Tata Safari Storme
Model Year: 2013 onward
New Car Price: Rs 13.2 lakh onwards
There is no doubt in the fact that the Safari Storme is definitely one of the most robust SUVs of its segment that is also the reason why it is being chosen by Indian Defense personnel to serve them. The Storme version, in particular, has received plenty of changes in and outside compared to the standard Safari SUV.
There is no doubt in the fact that the Safari Storme offers best in class cabin comfort, space and also ride quality and the credit goes to its suspension setup. This is also one SUV which offers jump seats for the third-row passengers which might not be the most comfortable one though.
The SUV is also huge and thus takes quite a lot of effort while driving it within the City. Tata Motors has also not given its much of an upgrade in the recent times which might make the SUV look a bit dated when compared to some its modern rivals. However, if you are looking for a large SUV to satisfy your ego but also is on a tight budget then look no further the Tata Safari Storme is the ideal SUV for you.
4. Mahindra Scorpio
Model Year: 2013 onwards
New Car price: Rs. 11.75 lakh onward
The Scorpio is here in the Indian market for a long time and is also popular amongst the crowd for its reliable engine. The SUV received some major updates back in the year 2014 and if you are looking to get your hands on one try to look for a model which has been manufactured after the year 2013.
The main highlight of the SUV is its 2.2 Litre diesel engine option. The diesel engine is capable of churning out about 120 Bhp of peak power and is available in both 2X2 and 4X2 wheel drive option. Besides being powerful the SUV also promises to return an impressive overall fuel efficiency figures as well.
The Scorpio is no doubt a good handler; its perfectly tuned suspension along with a light steering setup makes it an ideal SUV for both City and highway use. However what it lacks though is the comfort and space in the second and third-row seats. The rear seats offer limited leg space while the middle row seats are too upright which make long journeys a little uncomfortable.
Besides all these negative factors if you are looking to get your hands on a big SUV which also promises to offer an impressive overall fuel efficiency figures then you can always rely on the Mahindra Scorpio for sure.
5. Mahindra Thar CRDe 4×4
Model Year: 2013 onward.
New car price: Rs. 11 lakh onward
There is no doubt in the fact that the Mahindra Thar is one of the toughest, reliable and also one of the most radical-looking SUV’s in the Indian market today. This might not be your regular SUV which you can use for daily use but surely can be your favourite partner if you are thinking of having some serious amount of fun in the weekends.
There is also a slightly less pricey Di engine version available as well but most of us would recommend you to go for the 4 or 5-year-old CRDes variants. Although this SUV does not offer any creature comforts which you would normally expect from a standard SUV like air cons and power steering but it does offer 4×4 and low ratio gearbox, which can get you out of any situation when the tarmac roads have given up.
The Thar does not offer any safety features like airbags or ABS so if you are looking for a safer SUV then you should definitely look somewhere else. However, if you consider getting your hands on a Thar then we must warn you that this SUV surely is an attention magnet and will suit all your adventurous needs.
