There have been several reports lately that all indicated to the same conclusion – people would prefer personal mobility during the ongoing pandemic by all possible ways since it provides a personal space devoid of contact with others. It could be a personal car or a two-wheeler. The case in point today is the used car market which had been preparing for a boom as the lockdown restrictions would lift and no doubt there has been one. Used car marketplace players reported an increase in sales. We rummage through websites like Spinny, Truebil, and Quickr to look for good used cars to buy for under Rs 3 lakh.
You could get a humble Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 or a small Datsun or a Volkswagen Polo or even a sedan like Honda City or Volkswagen Vento. If the objective is to go for a small hatchback, options include Hyundai i10, Datsun Redi-GO, or a trusty or Alto. For example, Spinny has listed a 2012 Hyundai i10 Magna CNG with 57,470 km on the odo at Rs 2.65 lakh.
