Hi,

Posting on behalf of a friend. Would like to know what is a realistic price for a SX4. Details as mentioned-

Model- SX4
Variant- Zxi ABS with leather interiors
Year- 2009 made & reg.
Reg- MH-01
Colour- Silver
Mileage- 87K kms

The car dealerships for exchange are giving a value of approx. 2 lakhs. While ads on olx consistently are mentioning over 3.5 lakhs. Would be great if I could know what the price would be?

You can expect between 2.5 - 2.75 Lacs. It would have fetched more if it is not Mumbai registered. Kilometers done on the car is also on higher side. In Pune, similar car we get around for 3 - 3.5 Lacs.

Hi Guys,

I am thinking of selling my car in order to buy a new automatic vehicle and was hoping to get estimates for my current car. Following are the details:

Car: Maruti Suzuki SX4
Version: ZXi VVT (Petrol)
Color: Azure Grey
Mileage: 32.5k kms
Year of Purchase: August 2010

Would love to hear from the experienced people here as to how much should be my expectation.

I think 4 -4.5 lakh will be a decent amount for your car. SX4 due to it's low FE does not do very well in the used car market thus you will have to take quite a depreciation hit.

My father showed the car to a Maruti dealer and we were quoted 2.5 lakhs for the car. Hence a bit confused about the fair amount. I know the dealership will quote a lower amount but just wanted to know that if I bargain, what would a fair amount to bargain.

A little over 3L should be a fair deal. Don't take it to dealers, SX4 petrol don't fetch much attraction across dealers and they will be quoting atleast a lakh less than what a potential buyer could pay you.

Maruti dealers offer ridiculous prices for used cars. They quoted Rs. 60,000 for my Spark.

I think you should expect Rs. 3.5 lakhs for your SX4. 4-4.5 is a bit too much honestly.

Hi Saanil,

I have also got an SX4 which is up for sale. Jan 2011. Run 20K. Bom registered. Just yesterday I refused an offer of 4.5L as I was expecting 5.00L. Willing to let it go for 4.8 as insurance is coming due.
Do not waste your time going to Maruti True Value. They will quote at least 75K to 1.0L less than market price.
Dealers are the same. Waste of time. One guy offered me 3.0L yesterday.
This when my friends six year old Dzire petrol with 110K on the clock is going for 2.5L!!

I agree with "Toyotafan" about the expected price but not the low mileage. He is right about the older cars but not the ones with the VVT engine (2009 and after). For a sedan with a 1.6L engine what does one expect? Does anyone complain about the Corolla or Civic's fuel consumption? Yes! They are 1.8L engines but only give about 7.5 to 8.0Kmpl. The SX4 gives 8.5 to 9 in the city and 13 on the highway with AC on all the time. I think that's not bad at all. My WagonR gives just about 11 in the city so I'm not complaining about the SX4 consumption.

PM me and I will give you the numbers of two guys (my prospective buyers) who may be willing to pay 3.9 to 4.0L for your car. I hope you have the full service history and car is in immaculate condition. No accidents etc.

Regards,
SS

I sold my 2009 Dec sx4 run 43k km in Nov 2013 for Rs 4.25lakh. That was my quoted price and found a buyer who was willing to pay that. This is in Bangalore. My actual expectation was between 3.75 and 4. Offers from dealers ranged from 2.5 to 3.3.

Based on all this I think you can potentially expect something in the 3.5 to 4 range.

Can someone tell me which is the best portal in Bangalore where one can expect a good response when an advertisement is posted.

I am trying hard to sell my Manza, but unfortunately the response is low.

From my experience (Chennai & Coimbatore)
1) Olx - Beware, there are numerous dealers and time wasters will keep calling you)
2) T-BHP Classifieds - Genuine buyers
3) Quikr

Try to get it into the classifieds of the large IT companies like Accenture, Infy, TCS, IBM, HP etc... When I was in the process of selling my earlier car, the best responses were from these places

That is a good idea. But I will have to get in through someone working in these companies right? If I am not wrong, only the employees can post adds in their official classifieds portal.

I've heard occasional cribbing about Civic's mileage, but not about Corolla. A close friends Corolla (> 8 yrs old) returns ~10 kmpl, and most part of his commute is on horrible ORR. So, corolla returning ~8 kmpl doesnt sound right.
Secondly, both Civic and Corolla are from a segment above and most people will compare the SX4 with the city, and that is one fuel efficient car. IMHO, someone looking to buy a used car is looking for "value", and therefore, a difference in fuel efficiency is probably more relevant in the used car market than in the new one.
