With the growth in the new car market, the used car market of India is also maturing very quickly. Catering to almost all the segments of customers, the used car market has plenty of options that are enough to satisfy all customers. The sheer value for money deals that the used car market provides us is the reason why a lot of people are increasingly moving toward buying a used car. However, there are some cars that seem like more of a deal than the other cars, and the sellers are eager to get rid of these cars at prices that seem low when compared to other cars. Therefore, there are quite a few good SUV deals present on the used car market that are almost too good to be true. One can get a full-size SUV for a price less than a small hatchback. Let’s take a look at such deals where large SUVs are present on the used market for a price under 5 lakhs.
Maruti Suzuki Gypsy
There are iconic vehicles and then there is Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. Although it has been discontinued in the market, it still remains one of the most affordable 4x4 petrol SUVs out there. The sheer capability of the Gypsy to take on any challenging terrain makes it one of the most prominent choices of off-roaders. Not to mention that the SUV is very reliable and comes with minimal maintenance costs which makes it a pretty good deal overall.

Mitsubishi Pajero SFX
Mitsubishi Pajero was once a symbol of status in Indian families. Good at off-roading and built strongly, a well-kept model of the same car can be had for a relatively affordable price in India. The lack of after sales service and the banning of old diesel cars are the 2 major reasons why Pajero is available for such low prices in India. However, Mitsubishi vehicles are built to last and finding a well kept example shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Old Hyundai Tucson
The current generation Hyundai Tucson is a soft-roader and is loaded with features, but it also commands a very high price. However, the old generation Tucson is also a very capable vehicle that is relatively quite affordable. Not to mention that the wide network of Hyundai means service and spares will not be a major problem.

Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara
Maruti Suzuki had great hopes from the Grand Vitara when it was launched in India. However, the timing was a problem and the public response to the SUV was very tepid and the brand soon discontinued the car in India. The large 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre petrol engines and the optional 4WD make the Grand Vitara a very capable vehicle.

The older Honda CR-V drove like a car and offered the amenities of a full-size SUV. This made the older Honda SUV very popular. Although, the CR-V won’t do a lot of hardcore off-roading, it still is a good option because of the bullet-proof reliability and the low maintenance Honda badge brings with it.

Chevrolet Captiva and Honda CR-V had a pretty solid rivalry back in the day and the capable 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine made the Captiva the apple of the diesel lover’s eye. However, the exit of GM from India meant that the prices of Captiva saw a sharp decline and now a used unit can be had for a fairly good price.

Mahindra Scorpio holds a place in the heart of the Indian SUV lovers like no other vehicle does. The homegrown SUV introduced a whole generation of Indians to the love of SUVs and its more than 17 years in the market means that there are quite a few models of the SUV that one can buy at very affordable prices in the used car market.

Owning a Tata Safari at one point of time meant having arrived in life. The first choice of politicians and VIPs alike, Safari still has a cult following in India. The spacious and well appointed interiors with massive street presence and capable off-road potential means that the Safari is an all-rounder if there ever was one. The amount of time the Safari has spent in the market also means that one can get their hands on a used unit at pretty affordable prices.

Nissan X-Trail locked horns with Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour in the full-size SUV segment and came with loaded interiors as well as a very capable engine. Now wonder then that the SUV still remains a good choice in the used car market.

Hyundai Terracan had it all, good interiors, powerful engine and capability to do decent off-roading. However, the Hyundai flagship never managed to achieve decent sales figures in India. That’s why one can pick up a used Terracan at a very affordable price from the used car market.
