Re: Best used diesel car under Rs 8 lakh, for a driving enthusiast?

I would recommend S cross, Figo and Polo. I had owned Figo Aspire 1.5 diesel earlier and it's fun to drive and easy on pocket too. Try Ford Fiesta, if you could get one in decent condition.

Re: Best used diesel car under Rs 8 lakh, for a driving enthusiast?

The thread I have been looking for!

I do not have the budget that OP has, limiting myself to 2.5-3L at the moment - I am looking for a diesel hatch/sedan with fun-to-drive quotient. Expecting this car to fulfill daily driving duties as well as the weekend short trip runs.

I have forever been in love with Ford machines and the Fiesta has been a dream car for too long (never driven one though) and I hear the pre-2015 Figo is great too in this department. EcoSports are out of my range - the cheapest one I have seen on online classifieds is 6+ Lacs and I do not have the finances to shell out such an amount at this time.

My location is Pune and I plan to keep the car for 2-3years.

My questions to bhpians -

1. is buying a 10 year old Ford today a good idea? All examples come with 70k+ odo readings and I expect they will likely require some repairs soon
2. Also how much would be expected to spend on getting name transfer and other post-purchase formalities done (I am trying to finalise between purchasing from Cars24/Spinny who take care of these and buying from dealers/owners who may not take care of this).
3. Are there any other cars you would suggest? I am interested in manual transmissions only, and expect to be the single occupant-driver of this car for the most part. I have only ever driven petrol cars regularly (currently drive a 2016 Tiago 1.2 Revotron Petrol).

This is my first post, mods please let me know if this is not the correct thread for this post.

5. Volkswagen Vento/Skoda Rapid 1.5 TDI - Get the 1.6 if you can
6. Skoda Laura
7. Maruti S-Cross (Slightly inclined towards the 1.6 diesel)

8. Tata Safari
9. Ford Ecosport
10. Ford Figo / Freestyle (Would really love the Figo S).
I've highlighted my picks. Additionally look at:
- Swift / Baleno DDiS
- Renault Pulse / Nissan Micra DCI

If you can up your budget a bit, just go and buy a new Altroz Diesel.

Re: Best used diesel car under Rs 8 lakh, for a driving enthusiast?

Dear Friends, I would like to re- introduce a request in this forum to my fellow bhpians that I am also looking for a small Used Diesel Automatic car for my monthly (once or twice) commute from Pune-Mumbai-Pune. Total 350 Kms.

Any pointers would be highly appreciated. I have the following in my mind but just not sure about 'Which year and after' make I should consider. My budget is around 5L with +- 10%.
  1. Swift AGS
  2. Verna 1.6D
  3. Duster 110PS

I live in Pune. Hope to find some great inputs here soon.

Best Regards,
