ultimately this could actually happen unless they assemble the car here in their Nasik/ Chakan plant.
but frankly i think it will provide greater value than the current crop of OUtlanders, X Trails, Tucsons and Honda CRV's even if the OTR price of Yeti is at 17-19 lacs (Bangalore)

Yes, it may be compact in terms of exterior dimensions but it has excellent cabin space and the more cargo space then most people will ever need.

Congratulations SC,
post this link here if you have already written your STOR and pictures too.
As I said, I will wait for another quarter or two. However, I'm not hoping to see something exciting in my budget. Most of the new SUVs are going to be above 14L I believe.

thingummy sahab with your budget why are you looking at a vehicle(tucson /terracan) which the manufacturer itself was not able to sell .these things will depreciatefaster than you can read this,the only persotn who will be happy at nthe end of the day will be the seller .a
despite its abilities the tucson doesnt have the butch looks that most suv enthusiasts crave for.that itself will add to your depriciation go for a used pajero at least you will have buyers outside your door when you want to sell

Cars that depreciate quickly are the ones that make fantastic used buys. He is looking at a used Tucson, thus the SUV's trait of dropping its market value works to his advantage.

exactly, which is why a one year old Outlander is available for 13.5 Lakhs!

The Tuscon is a great vehicle.My uncle has one and he simply loves it.
Its got loads of grunt ,the steering is really light. Its good good mileage ,a terrific engine.
The only negative point would be its re sale value.

O.T: Is a one year old outlander really available for 13.5 lakhs.That would be a terrific buy. I simply love the outlander.
Cheers

That would be good buy. why would the seller want to sell? If he was aiming at having something different, he has already got it.

in another years time a 2 year old one for 9L would make even more sense.

can you pls elaborate?

Tyres, battery, rear glass needed replacing. Other than that regular servicing and polishing / shampooing.

Guys
I just saw a 2005 black Tucson done 60K kms, maintained clean, comes with a premium single digit registration number(not that it matters much to me). it has a genuine accesory sunroof, good complete history. Quoting 8.5 lakhs for it. I am thoroughly in need of good advise......
  • What should I look for in terms of weaknesses
  • What is the ideal price
  • is the car worth going for in terms of "feel"

8.5? Negotiate a bit, bring it to about 7.75. Sunroof might leak if it's not factory fitted. Tuscon is on the verge of being discontinued so there might be scarcity of rare spare parts. It has a great engine + pickup though. I had almost purchased a '05 Tuscon for 7.5l but then there were some problems. If you need a diesel, this has to be it. If a petrol works for you, check out a CR-V but Tuscon is a great car

That's a great looking Tucson, Rohit! A fair price, considering that she's 5 years old & has 60,000 clicks, would be 7.50 - 7.75 lakhs. Frankly, its a steal at the price. The Tucson is a well-balanced soft roader and has a cracker of a diesel engine too! Don't forget to get the SUV a pre-purchase inspection at a Hyundai center.

In Chandigarh/ Delhi the price for the 2005 tucson should be about 7L, and in Mumbai about 7.5L and in Bang about 8L. You and the Car seem to be from up north.

@rohitgaur: Before finalising the Buy get the car checked at Hyundai workshop(Go for a Hyundai authorised workshop, even if they charge you). Apart from the regular check up look for the following details at the workshop:

1.All the Hyundai workshops have a centralised record system where you can verify the mileage and history of the car.

2.Get the compression test done. Though this engine is same as Elantra is very reliable unit and known to do very mileage before needing a overhaul.

3.Check whether Clutch is changed already, if not be ready for a expense upwards of 15k. Availability and price of spares in not a problem though.

4.Get the AWD system checked.
