Default Used CRV / alternative ?

A friend of mine is looking at a used CRV - about 3 years old in decent condition - I don't have details but what might indicative pricing be ?
What are other alternatives ? He actually started out looking at a 6/7 seater, FYI, and is not too much into autos so the Safari/Scorpio (which need a little more involvement) are out, I guess.

Ford Endavour is one option and should be available in more numbers in the second hand market for cheap.

Crv should come for 8.5 to 10.5 depending on condition and age, provided you find one for sale

Why not a 7-seater Innova? Good vehicle & should be available in the used market for quite a bargain. Heck considering your friend's budget he can even get a new one for that much!

I havnt seen a CRV carrying 7 people on board. People buy it more for its urban soft roader image, rather than as a people mover (MUV).
You are better off with an Innova for moving 6-7 people.

Well, by reputation the Safari/Scorpio are less car like to drive and maintain, and require you to get to know your service guys a little more
I do think the Endeavour/Terracan may be a little to cumbersome, given that its primarily for city usage. The earlier vehicle was a Siena 1.2, as a benchmark. So far the Innova does sound like the right choice. How expensive to it to maintain/keep up with the city - dents etc ?

Innova or Tucson would be good choices. Both are reliable and easier to live with than a hairy, brutal true-blue SUV, or a Scorpio.

Heck, how did you know his budget? LOL

Yes, you are right, he could get a new innova in that budget, but does that come anywhere near a CRV ???? 2 worlds apart, i would say, based only on looks, the rest speak for themselves.

6-7 people I wouldn't recommend Tuscon/CRV or even the Endy(Rear is too bumpy for my choice).
For that Innova is the most VFM option.
Cheap to maintain, and you get a super low rate of interest + fab discounts.

I think the Tucson would not be able to accommodate anything more than 4 or 5 either.........

I would tend to agree with the general consensus of the Innova - looks apart it serves your friend's purpose

Where would be the best place to look for a used CRV or Tucson in Pune?

I am totally new to the city and would appreciate your help. I rang Deccan Honda, but they weren't hepfull in looking for a used CRV.

Thanks

Update: the guy looking for the CRV found a darn good one - the revised one before the current one was launched - for 12.2L. Its done only 12.5k kms and is in amazing shape.
Thanks for the inputs, all.

Thats a good price for the seller considering it doesnt carry much of a resale value!
