Dhaval, forgetting about the creature comforts for a while the only vehicle that fits your budget is a Gypsy.
You can get a used Gypsy Look for one that is in near stock condition.

Hmm... looks like I'll have to save up for a Bolero. I'd love a Gypsy but my right knee tends to rest and frequently hit the right door during long drives on bad roads.

Thanks for your opinions, all. I did know in the back of my mind that 2L was stretching it while asking for a/c and power steering in a large-ish car, but one must always find out before discarding something.

Sorry for bumping up an old thread, but what did you finally buy? Did you consider the armada grand?

Have you considered a Tata Sierra of 96/97 make.A good one comes under a lakh and it has A/C and Power steering too.Those Mercedes based engines are simply the best.

If reliability is a concern, I think the best bet in your budget is a used Bolero. It's crude, but will meet your needs. You don't get coil springs at back, but you can swap out the leaf springs for carbon fibre ones that supposedly improves the ride based on reviews of people who have done so on this forum.

Please stay away from the temptation of buying a vehicle at this point when you are definitely not ready financially. Buying a vehicle at this point with this budget means you gonna make a daily visit to the mechanic shop and spend couple of lakhs to keep it running. think twice...

Default Re: Used SUV under 2 lakhs possible?

Reviving an old thread. Hope the following is still relevant even today.

My dad sold the Safari Dicor 3.0 for 1.8 lakhs. That's the best he could get for the immaculately maintained SUV. Did not know until it was sold. My colleagues in office were ready to shell out more than 2.5 for the car.
