People do not bother to differentiate between new or used cars.
Mumbai is a city full of people who are struggling to make their dreams successful. So, the obvious thing is they have a budget crunch. This has elevated the scope of used car sale in the city. As we have studied in Economics, if the demand increases, the price of the product decreases. The same theory applies over here. Due to the increased demand of cars both new and used cars, the prices drop. It is obvious that the price of a new car cannot be reduced as it remains the same pan India. However, the prices of the second hand cars get reduced.

Generally, as per Indian rules, a person is not supposed to run on roads after 10 years if you have a diesel orient car. Similarly, if you have a petrol variant, you are not supposed to run after 15 years. So, people are trying to sell off their cars after 5 – 6 years of driving at a lower price. If the condition of the car is fair, good, very good or excellent, then the market value of the car will be pretty decent. This will be good news for sellers too. Nowadays, special online tools are available for estimating the accurate market or real-time value of the car as per the present condition of the used car.
