Hi. Greetings !!
Understand requirement and pls find below inputs
Used Diesel Cars
:- do not hold very high resale value in Delhi, NCR Zone
Although its Harrier XZA Plus top end with fully loaded features but average camera, laggy infotainment and fact that Tata Harrier XZA Plus Automatic when bought by owner would have costed in 23 Lakh On road in Haryana, and last sold at around 25 to 25.5 Lakh prices in BS6 ph1 after discounts in 2023
Basis fact of 50% Tyre Life, upcoming battery change in next 2 yrs, insurance due in 4 months and fact that car looks like out of company warranty (without any extended warranty as spinny offering same) - in no way anything beyond 70% of 25.5 Lakh as present value - means 18 Lakh as maximum price be offered for it.
Adding further upkeep cost in terms of Insurance renewal, Tyre Life - means another cut in resale.
Do note that when cars are sold from 2nd Owner to 3rd Owner and that too a Diesel one as will look for in Delhi, NCR - car resale value will erode further.
Although fair value is 17.5 Lakh but 18 Lakh is like maximum stretched price for this BS6 Phase 1 Compliant Harrier XZA Plus provided in rest of the parameters car is excellent and well maintained.
At 19 Lakh - strict no and overpriced
Škoda Slavia 1.5L TSI DSG
: Is 16.65 Lakh as On road price ?
I mean it just cant get better than this. Its not 2.5 Lakh discount but almost 4 Lakh Discount as On road price in Gurgaon
is little above 20.5 Lakh
and you do not need to be worried about past stories as
> Localisation is very high in VW India Car range since 2020 (almost 90%+)
> Most of the spare parts cost significant lesser as against scenario of 2015
> 4 yr Skoda Service care pack available including all service cost and offered complimentary too
> Car offered with 4 yr warranty but recommended to opt for extended warranty of additional 2 yrs to make it 6 yr / 1.5 Lakh Kms - as will not only offer peace of mind but even will cover in resale factor as and when plan to sell with DSG transmission will be available in company offered warranty too
For a user whos going to own for 4 to 5 yrs - from
a) Best in class Performance
b) Ownership Cost
c) Fully Loaded Features
d) Road Presence, Styling Factor
e) Immaculate Handling
you really do not need to worry at all, i also suggest to check out VW Virtus GT Line too as somehow Virtus GT line feels even more sportier with red accents in interiors and those black alloys enhance the look feel factor of this car
What you wont like would be the mileage part where your running cost would be relative higher
Secondly - i also suggest to ask for VIN number pre hand and Decode Car Manufacturing Month
to actually see that its indeed a December or November make car and not too far away unsold stock in inventory
Concern for you at a point would be of fuel efficiency - in city use 11 to 12 at max should be a decent expectation, on highway yes car can shine to 17 to even 18 kmpl+ due to active cylinder technology.
: Indeed limited storage space would be a downside, and secondly this engine in 3 cylinder form feels more noisier too.
Pickup performance cant expect anywhere close to what you enjoying right now in Creta Diesel Auto or can expect in Slavia 1.5 or Harrier
Yes positives remains of
> Fuel efficiency
But for need where compromise would be on boot, performance and such a steep price - things go low.in favor of this car.
: Indeed year long waiting period
Final Suggestion for you
16.65 Lakh is too good a price for Slavia, you really need to
a) Check if its indeed a November or December model
b) Recheck on price by asking full breakup of On road components
c) If Point a holds true and b is satisfactory then Opt for 4+2 yr warranty to have DSG Transmission covered for longer year and expect same to factor in resale value too
At this price, nothing can come better than Skoda Slavia 1.5 DSG AUtomatic and recommended purchase
