The Indian automobile scene is getting groovier by the day, and the car sales numbers are also climbing every year. However, so far only mass market cars have come to dominate the Indian scene, and luxury cars still remain a rarity on the roads. Not to be mistaken, but the luxury car segment has also grown by quite a bit, but the thing has been that the mass market cars have grown at a more rapid pace and the luxury models are somewhere lost in the giant sea of affordable cars, and are only visible few and far between.
The main reason behind this is the fact that only affordable cars are manufactured here in the country, and the luxury models are still made by the respective companies overseas. Under the laws of India, any car imported in India, attracts heavy taxes and duties. Therefore, the expensive luxury cars get even more expensive or sometimes doubly expensive by the time they hit Indian shores. However, used car customers can rejoice as these luxury and exotic cars depreciate at the speed of lightning. Therefore buying them in the used car market is quite affordable. Presenting 3 such cars that you can have at a pretty affordable price from our used car market.
