Alto has a high resale value. If you are willing to wait till you find a genuine buyer, you can get up to Carwale's estimate, else the OBV/IBB value holds good if you are planning to sell it to a dealer.

You would most likely get a better quote from Truevalue as it is easier for them to fix (if any) issues at their service center, sell it through the Truevalue outlet. Do not know if there is any limit on the number of evaluations in Truevalue, but the last quote might get stored somewhere in their database. Alternatively, you could use the quote from Truevalue as a reference & then sell it on OLX, Carwale or other portals.

Did you try to exchange this car when booking the new one? What did they offer? Sometimes, a decent offer when exchanging coupled with the exchange bonus and loyalty bonus (if the new one happens to be a Maruti as well) can result in a very decent value for your outgoing car.

I have booked the new Dzire, and there is no bonus available for that

Dzire will be registered in company's name (car lease scheme), so i dont have an option to exchange, it will be a direct sale to MS true value (if i opt for it).

Toyota Corolla Altis came to my mind. over 130bhp, i am sure you will get it at your budget for a 5 year old car, sure it will have ABS and Airbags and it is a TOYOTA

I have shortlisted the 2.0 TDI motor in Jetta/Passat or the 1.8 TSI in Laura/Octavia/Superb. Most cars available in the market are 2010 to 2012 and priced between 6L and 11L (before any negotiation).

Any cars i missed?
Is there any issue in buying a 5 to 7 year old car considering that i am planning to keep it for 3 to 5 years?

Say, i buy a 2011 superb for 9L, how much depreciation can i expect in the next 3 years.

I second Swamy69's suggestions. Please try to avoid 3+ years old Skoda and VW. I cannot think of a better proposition that a Corolla Altis

Edit:- Why don't you look for elantra as well? I have seen a few good examples for 8L on OLX

Oh. If you are not going for exchange, I would recommend selling directly to buyer instead of going via dealer, because in direct sale ownership transfer happens right away, whereas in dealer sale your car will still be registered in your name until the dealer finds a buyer and then new buyer transfers the registration.

By the way, congrats on your new car booking. The new DZire definitely looks 'desirable'.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did not consider Elantra, because I am not a fan of Hyundai's handling. I did briefly consider Corolla, but somehow it did not make an impression like the 1.8 TSi.
I have finalized a 2011 Laura 1.8 TSi MT that has run 41,200 KMs. Atleast DSG issues are ruled out. Turned out to be heart over mind

How much are you paying for the 6 year old Laura. One of my friend was looking for a similar car. He also checked the new 1.8 Tsi Octavia but those are coming up to 12-15 L depending on odo and year.

I am in the market for a used car. My usage will be very sparse. Only weekend highway runs and ocassional city usage. For my office commute I stick to my two wheeler. My budget is around 3-3.7L. Hatch or a sedan is fine as long as it is reliable.

I do not want to buy wagon R, even though it is niggle free and has the M badge, I do not like the tall boy design. Would I be able to get a SX4 diesel for that price? How about SX4 petrol ? I know that it has a horrible FE, but I am quite tempted with the 100BHP power and the comfort.

Look for well maintained Honda Civic with low mileage (less than 100k on odo). Should be less than 4 L and if properly kept can go to 200k to 300k kms. Sheer driving pleasure and 130bhp power.

In case you have decided on Sx4, you would find Zxi(Petrol) 2011-12 versions within the aforementioned budget. Diesel variants if well maintained would be a little higher priced.

Laura 1.8 TSI is a great car and great VFM car for enthusiasts in the used car space. In my opinion there is nothing even remotely close to it in terms for performance, build and comfort at the price points it is available.

Also more expensive to repair and keep up than a hatch especially after 1 lakh km. It will continue to perform but has to get scheduled service and service isn't cheap.

Keep that in mind when you buy an old civic or corolla. Excellent cars, but will cost you over a period of time.

I noticed that on a lot of portals. I find it expensive to maintain a civic. Plus the low ground clearance is of no use. I dont like cars that scrape the road.

You are 100% right. My ex boss sold his well maintained civic for 4L. Seems the Honda a$$ quoted 1.5L for repairing the gear box and engine mounts. with some suspension overhaul.

I was quite keen on toyota corolla. I was quite skeptical about the maintainance costs. I would stick to a economy car and steer clear from premium cars. Maruthi has relatively lower maintaince cost compared to these to Japnese .

I see a few swift LXI and VXI variants, but none of these have ABS or airbags. Very hard to find ZXI variants

I would also suggest to keep an eye open on 'Z' versions of Ritz & Dzire, both are very practical cars for city & highway despite their odd looks. However, Sx4 Zxi is the best bang for buck. Poor resale is a boon to used car buyers.
