Hyundai Creta and Toyota Fortuner are the most popular SUVs in the used car market

Hyundai Creta has emerged as the most popular SUV on the used market. Around 3.5 years old Creta, is one of the most popular options for a 5-seater SUV between Rs. 11 and 12 lakhs.

Then there's the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the most popular compact SUV among those looking for a used car priced between Rs. 8 and 9 lakhs. The Toyota Fortuner, around 4.5 years old, comes to mind if we're talking about the most popular seven-seater SUV.

The used car market is robust in India for a variety of reasons. Many sellers now provide a warranty with the car or refund in case of any defect. It increases the buyer's confidence when purchasing a used car. The coronavirus is also another reason. People prefer to commute in their cars to avoid public transportation. Therefore, buyers prefer to buy a used car over a new one.

Used Hyundai Creta

Since its launch in India, the Hyundai Creta has been a highly popular SUV. However, the price of the SUV has gone up since then. The lower models of mid-size SUVs don't come with much equipment, so customers are choosing a well-maintained used one, with all the features to save money.

Creta comes in a variety of trims and three engine options. A 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine delivers a maximum of 115 PS and a peak torque of 144 Nm. It comes with a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission. 1.5-liter diesel engine delivers a maximum of 115 PS and a peak torque of 250 Nm. It offers a six-speed manual or a torque converter automatic transmission.

For those searching for a Creta with sportiness, a 1.4-liter turbocharged petrol engine is also available. It generates a maximum of 140 PS and a peak torque of 242 Nm coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

Since its debut, Brezza has led the compact SUV market. Maruti Suzuki replaced the Brezza's 1.3-litre diesel engine with a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine last year. The diesel engine was well-known for its minimal maintenance requirements and high fuel efficiency. As a result, consumers are still searching for a Vitara Brezza equipped with a diesel engine. Maruti Suzuki also offers the best service network in India and low-cost replacement parts.

Toyota Fortuner

Toyota Fortuner is the oldest seven-seater SUV available in India. However, it's still the best-selling. The SUV has low-maintenance costs and is reliable. Its muscular looks and strong road presence make it a popular choice among buyers in the used car market.
