Pre-Owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs that you can’t say, ‘No’ to!

Cars

Used luxury cars in your budget are doable. Believe it or not, we know today if you go to the market to buy a standard car with good safety features, you will easily spend around 30-40 lakhs- that too when you keep your budget tight. A standard SUV can cost you anywhere around 35 lakhs, and unless your only priority is to commute- you would want your car to provide a few elite features too. And getting all that can cross 40 lakhs easily. This is because standard manufacturers today are trying to incorporate better features to attract consumers towards them. And safety concerns of people have grown tremendously lately; people prefer cars with advanced safety features. 

So our question to you is- why buy a standard car for 40 lakhs when you can buy used luxury cars under 50 lakhs with better features, performance, functionality and everything luxury! 

Most people get influenced by the market stereotypes and myths about pre-owned luxury cars- these keep the audience from seeing the truth. And obviously, no one ever wishes to bet money on uncertain things- the scepticism doesn’t let them benefit from used variants. We have talked about these myths and stereotypes here, have a look if you wish to change your perspective towards it

But for now, let us break this to you- used luxury cars under 50 lakhs is possible, and no, you don’t compromise anywhere, whether it’s about quality or options. The market is flooded with such great options because people are not ready to realise how good these variants are- affordable, quality assured and everything a new out-of-the-lot car is!

Now, before presenting you with the irresistible options that you can consider- let us first break to you why these cars are so good and yet affordable because that’s what makes it look iffy- that it isn’t. 

Pre-owned luxury cars are available in the market at 30-40% of their overall market value. That is the first thing that makes it look scammy- but the thing is these cars depreciate faster than any standard car does- implying that they lose 40-50% of their overall market prices by the time they close their 5th year. But something that does not deteriorate at that rate is their quality- sustenance is the core benefit of luxury cars. A luxury car is meant to give you a luxurious and comfortable driving experience for a minimum of 10 years- that does not change even when it depreciates. 

That is our argument. That is why we advocate for used luxury cars. Because we know how much value they have to offer to anyone who buys it. Now about that list of pre-owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs- we have six options for you that we doubt you can say, ‘no’ to! 

Volvo- 

First in our list of options is this dynamic and highly-agile car. The Volvo XC90 Inscription is a model that will sway you into owning one. This is a perfect crossover SUV for anyone who likes to spend more time on unknown and undiscovered roads. Specifically, the 2016 variant is known for its restructured design and robust powertrain. 

Powertrain- 

This variant features a 1969 cc twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that churns out the max horsepower of 400bhp and max torque of 640 Nm @1750 rpm. Plus, it has an 8-gear automatic transmission system that ensures the car glides smoothly. 

Exterior- 

Volvo changed its entire game when it launched its modernised designs in 2016- the manufacturers managed to give it a stylish yet classy look as they moved past their traditional structure to evolve into a more acceptable one. This used Volvo XC90 Inscription has updated huge grilles designed to keep the insides- the engine and the radiator cool by providing enough ventilation to them- the design is versatile as it serves the purpose and adds to the look as well. Moreover, the slim LED headlights are indeed a plus point as they are a perfect addition to the exteriors. 

Interior- 

Leather upholstery, 9-inch large vertically oriented infotainment system, astutely placed headrests and armrests with electrically adjustable front & rear seats are a few features of this car that sets an aesthetic appeal inside the whole cabin. With a seating capacity of four, this car comes with ample boot space of 300 litres. If comfort is paramount for you too- this one is the perfect match for you. 

This is a performance-inspired car designed to deliver comfort, luxury and smooth rides. If we talk about a few miscellaneous features- the car has a wheelbase of 2984mm that provides it improved traction on uneven terrain. Equipped with all advanced safety features like Passenger and Driver Air-Bags, ABS, Brake-Assist, Central Locking; perfect for people who have a big family or a group of friends. 

Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition- 

Yes, you read it right- it’s a Range Rover featured in a list of pre-owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs. And it can become yours with no effort, just give us a call, and we’ll handle the rest. But before you make your call- let us introduce you to this beast that’s standing at Kings Auto’s lot.

Range Rovers are known for their unmatched off-the-road capabilities- to glide smoothly on all terrains is what Range Rover’s do the best. And that’s what all the off-roaders want, isn’t it? It is an ergonomically designed variant that offers superior performance and a distinctive drive experience. A dynamic SUV, for a dynamic personality.

Powertrain- 

This variant features a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine that churns out max power and max torque of 177 bhp @4000 rpm and 430 nm @1750 rpm, respectively- can go from 0-100kmph in 9.1 as claimed. Furthermore, this used Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition comes with a 9-gear automatic transmission system that supports a sport mode. The variant is an AWD drivetrain considered best for terrains that have less traction- prevents slippage. 

Exterior- 

If there’s another word for robust, then it must be Range Rover. This car is the very definition of luxury, style and dynamism. A glance at this model will give you sporty feels. To begin with, the car has a revamped grille and a bodacious Carpathian roof that’s standing out here as it complements the moraine blue colour quite well. This is a special edition Range Rover which is why it’s a steal under this budget. In all, we’ll rate the looks of this variant 9/10. We just think the front bumper could have been better. 

Interior- 

A car with great performance but no comfort is good for nothing. Comfort is paramount, at least we think it is. Because a car for the wanderlusts is more like a home on wheels- and is home even home if it’s not cosy? We think not. That’s why talking about interiors is important. The cabin looks extremely elite because of the colour compatibility of black and grey. This used variant is ideal for 5 people, the seats can be lowered to experience sporty spirits, and the entire ambience is very serene. Moving onto the space- this used variant comes with a boot space of 574 litres, ample headroom and legroom too. The insides of this variant are designed intricately, so it is practical and comfortable. 

All in all, this variant is a must in your list of used luxury cars under 50 lakhs. 

Mercedes E220D- 

Mercedes is known for its performance-inspired and luxurious designs. Mercedes has been a preeminent luxury cars manufacturer for years now. This used Mercedes E220D is a sedan built to provide an off-the-beat driving experience. If you’ve got an eye for class and style, you’ll fall for this car in seconds; to be honest, the colour of this variant does help! A royal blue Mercedes for the noble. 

Powertrain- 

This Mercedes E220 D features a 1950cc 4 cylinder inline engine that churns out max power and max torque of 192 bhp @3800 rpm and 400 nm @ 1600 rpm, respectively. This is a rear-wheel-drive variant that comes with a 9-gear automatic transmission system- everything a car needs to provide better fuel economy, performance and traction on terrains- as the name suggests, this variant is indeed the master of all terrains!

Exterior- 

Why is it that every time we see a luxury sedan, we perceive it’s a well-suited person who’s driving it? It’s how the brand has positioned itself in the market- it depicts class, style, sophistication and opulence. The E-class manages to uphold that image of Mercedes in the market. Looking at the car the first thing you’ll notice is how ostentatious the front of the car looks- the gigantic grille, and the high performance LED headlights are the two elements that stand out and complement the extended bonnet of this luxury car. 

Interior- 

The cabin of this car is extremely spacious and comfortable. To begin with, the seats of this variant are well-cushioned, the headrests and armrests are positioned astutely, and there is ample headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers.

To conclude, this is an extremely comfortable luxury sedan for those who like to take their buddies with them everywhere. 

Mercedes C220D- 

Another performance-inspired luxury car- it is dynamic, easy-to-drive, functional and progressive. We vouch for a Mercedes because it’s reliable, luxurious and lasts longer. If a perfect blend of class and performance exists, then it must be named after this variant. A perfect luxury ride for a true travel bug.

Exterior- 

In one look, the car gives legendary feels- the colour of this variant makes it look astonishingly well put together. The manufacturers did put efforts to upgrade the car’s overall look by changing a few elements like adding the enhanced LED headlights, and taillights to revamp the front bumper. If you are in the market for a luxury sedan, you must consider this one as an option. 

Interior- 

Mercedes interiors have never disappointed us, and nor will they disappoint us this time. The German luxury car manufacturer has given quite a thought to improvise comfort at its best in this variant. It’s not that other variants don’t have what this one does- but getting better with every launch is what Mercedes does the best. The space, comfort, ambience, and lush-this cabin has it all, and yet it looks so minimalistic. 

So if you are preparing a list of used luxury cars under 50 lakhs that you need to assess in and out to reach your final decision, you must put this variant on that list.

5 Luxury cars that failed to live up to the market’s expectations

Cars

We have all heard about those success stories. But we can’t really overlook the failures, can we? 

It all comes down to innovations and what the market can absorb at a particular time.

Many manufacturers of luxury cars have also failed at bringing the change. And maybe we couldn’t see it as they saw it at that time. 

Maybe, they were just an era early to have launched a few of these variants. 

So let’s dive in and explore the five blunders of the automotive industry of all times. 

The BMW blaster-

The name does justice to this car. It was indeed a “blast”.

No, the car did not blast but it had some very strange features- which might not have been practical in the era it was launched. 

The BMW blaster was outfitted with flamethrowers. 

We asked the same question- why would someone need flamethrowers in a car? 

Unless they also worked as barbeque. We don’t foresee a need to roast cars or people on the road for no reason. 

Interestingly, the car had two LPG flamethrowers on each side of the car below the doors. 

So to put it differently, with the click of a switch- the driver could roast whoever they wanted. Weird right? 

Safety and legality concerns did not let this car stay on the road for long.  

Statistically, only a few hundred of this model were sold in the South African market due to high costs and the criticism that it received. 

As argued by BMW, the renowned manufacturer of luxury cars, the car could not kill but gave the driver enough time to save himself from uncertainty. Which was opposed, and the car was never again spotted.

Toilet on wheels-

This one is equally disturbing for us as this is for you. 

Businesses do attempt at solving people’s problems but, some of them are better unresolved.

Cars normally stink so much that carrying a toilet inside them would drive anyone nuts. 

We don’t know what the makers thought- but we surely can not agree with them!

This was the vision of none other than Cadillac. 

They indeed had a vision.

People stopping every mile at a restroom to get light was obviously not agreeing with them. 

They wanted people to keep travelling and cover long distances in less time. 

But maybe they forgot about the car’s ambience. 

Who would choose to carry shit with themselves while travelling and not you know use a public washroom instead? 

Gross for us too!

Mercedes air-balance-

While some did not give a damn to how it smelled inside the car- Mercedes gave serious thought to it. 

The traditional dispensers were not doing it for Mercedes. So they instead tried to give it a shot themselves. 

Creating something that was specific to their brand and that no other luxury competitor was offering was their aim- clearly, it did not work out as they expected. 

Mercedes launched their scent dispensers in a few of their used luxury cars. Even though the concept was great, it was not something for all. 

Comfort is paramount. And this is why it got rejected- since many people from the Mercedes consumer segment faced issues with scents and fragrances. 

In all, the concept was great but didn’t serve the purpose as it was envisioned initially. 

Points for the idea though!

The Sinclair C5 30- 

Just what we talked about initially. We couldn’t see the purpose as the manufacturers did. 

It is believed that the Sinclair C5 30 was a little too ahead of the time. 

People couldn’t picture themselves in a mini electric car. 

The C5 was a single-seater pedal-assist tricycle designed to promote personal transportation. 

While today people are moving towards it-this phenomenal concept was rejected back in 1985. 

Simply because of the design and since people couldn’t picture themselves as the manufacturers did. 

The design was a little too unenclosed to be on the road indeed. But a modified version might work today.

The curtiss-wright model 2500- 

We all envisioned a world with red lights in space at least once. 

Because the new century always brings better advancements- which we all knew for a reason were “flying cars”. 

And while we all were dreaming about flying a car once in our lives- people out there were working to make that possible.  

The Curtiss-Wright 2500 was the only model that ever came close to being a flying car ever. 

This was a dual-engine model with 300 horsepower- which could easily carry four passengers at a time. 

Without actual wheels, axels or transmission- this car could be driven easily by anyone who could drive a normal car at that time. 

Made specifically for the use of the US military- this variant did not stand up to their expectations. 

Only such blunders can lead us to a successful product after all. But honestly, a few of them need to stay as a blunder. 

We would rather use a public washroom than carry one with us everywhere. 

Luxury cars have always been the light bearer for the industry. Their innovations are followed if they stand out. And a few of the above mentioned are worth experimenting with. 

A flying car is still on the list of many, and a compact electric car will surely see a good demand too- provided positive changes are made to the concept. 

We can only wish for a positive shift. 

But apart from these failures, luxury manufacturers have launched many irresistible cars that we all envy. 

And if you are looking for pre-owned luxury cars- now is the time to take the next step. Check out Kings Auto’s collection on their website and book your love today!

Depreciation and Luxury cars- all you need to know!

Cars

Almost every person knows how depreciation works- you step out of the lot, and your car depreciates faster than a skipper falls. And it’s nothing to be worried about because every car depreciates, but yes, knowledge is important to bag better deals whether you buy or sell. 

You don’t want to get deceived and suffer losses because you don’t have enough knowledge. So being a little heedful is what’s needed here before you wrap up everything. 

Especially while buying used luxury cars, depreciation becomes a significant facet you can not overlook. After all, the entire deal depends on the depreciated car value- whether you are the buyer or the seller- if your aim is closing a beneficial bargain, read on!

1. Do luxury cars depreciate faster than standard cars? If yes, why?

Yes, the market value of luxury cars depreciates at a faster rate than any standard car. This is because luxury cars cost much more than what a standard car does. Plus, these cars have higher maintenance costs, also known as the running costs- thus, they depreciate faster. 

In other words, the consumers in the automobile market have two options to choose from- they can either go for a used vehicle or a new one. And since not all understand what it takes to drive a luxury vehicle, they prefer a standard car or a new luxury if they have the pocket for it. All In all, they like to risk the least. 

Moreover, in simple economic terms- the higher the supply, the lower the cost- and hence the widened gap between the initial buying price of the car and the resale price. 

2. At what rate do luxury cars depreciate in the first five years of purchase? 

A new standard variant drops its value by at least 10% the moment it is driven off the lot! This increases by 5 per cent in the case of a luxury car, and it is also possible that the car loses 20% of its overall value in the very first year of its purchase. This is followed by a depreciation of 15% every year, which brings you to 50% overall depreciation by the 5th year ends. If we talk about specific models, a Mercedes model can just as easily be depreciated by 60% of its total value by the 5th year. 

And this all paints a negative picture; the question is- why buy a used variant then? The answer would be- depreciated value doesn’t necessarily point to depreciated performance. The steep depreciation is the result of the market, but a luxury car remains a luxury car. And buying it used comes with so many pros. Sure, you won’t be able to sell it for a good margin, but you could get it at 50% of its value, use it for a minimum of 6-7 years and get rid of the car as you wish. Not every purchase is made with a motive of reselling it, some are to enjoy while they last!

3. What are the best pre-owned luxury cars with the lowest depreciation rates?

The thing with second-hand cars is that they don’t depreciate as much as a new variant does. The major depreciation that a car goes through is in its initial years. So if you want to avoid losing money, just go for a variant that is at least three years old and has been maintained well by the owners. This way, you save at least 30-40% of what the initial value was. 

4. What parameters are judged while car valuation?

Many parameters are considered when a car is valued. Once the car has been inspected, the first thing that is taken into consideration is the odometer reading and the age. So, for instance, if you are trading your car with a dealership of used luxury cars, they are much likely to inspect it inside out to get you a quote after considering the age and odometer’s reading. After which, everything from the exteriors and the interiors is weighed. Moreover, how well the maintenance has been done plays a crucial role in its valuation too. If you’ve been a responsible driver, you can negotiate on the pricing and get them to pay a little higher. But if you are on the opposite side of this, try to negotiate on the interest rates. 

Depreciation can look like an enemy to you, but it could just as easily become your friend. All you’ve got to do is use this knowledge to your benefit. Now that you know buying a new variant can cost you bucks, why don’t you shift towards pre-owned instead? It’s cheaper, just as reliable as a new variant is, it is sustainable and will give you all the luxurious feel you ever wanted. 

So here’s the deal- benefit from the loss the first owner had suffered. Possibly, the first owner didn’t bother much because we all know he had the big bucks to spare. But his money could help you. So choose wisely.
