Since this Insights Report is a comprehensive one, I’ll be sharing the highlights of the content that’s available in the latest edition with details. Let’s start with the most affordable cars that are available in India and see how price trends have fared in the used car market in the last two years. 

Micro Hatchback: Micro hatchbacks are the small cars, considered as entry level passenger cars in India. Price trends of used micro hatchbacks have seen some shifts in 2021 but since then, it has been increasing in 2022. 

Mini Hatchback: Moving on to mini hatchbacks, these cars are slightly larger than the micro hatchbacks with more features. Used mini hatchbacks saw a sharp hike in the prices in 2022 and are expected to raise even higher next fiscal due to improving demand. 

Compact Hatchback: Stepping further up the ladder, we have compact hatchbacks which are the most expensive models of the hatchbacks. They come with bigger engines and long range of features. In last two years, this body type saw the greatest rise in the prices over last 2 years. 

Sub-Compact Sedan: Sub-compact sedans usually see highest demand in the new car market and same can be said about the used market as well. The prices of used sub-compact sedans have been increasing constantly in the last two years. 

Compact Sedan: Prices of used compact sedans were going flat line in 2021 but the real push is seen in the year 2022. 

Mid-size Sedan: With the rise in the demand of SUV body type passenger vehicles, the demand for Midsize sedans is seen going south. Due to this very reason, the prices of used mid-size sedans have dropped in the past two years. 

MUV – 1: Medium size MUVs have seen a drop in the price in the year 2022 mostly due to lower supply in this body type because of high demand in the used vehicles markets across the country. 

MUV – 2: This body-type denotes the larger sized multi utility vehicles and is in demand due to which, used MUVs have recorded a respectable rise in their prices. 

SUV – 1: After moving flat for few years, the prices of used compact SUVs hiked exponentially high in the last 2 years due to a surge in the demand and also due to constant supply of used sub-compact and SUVs in the market. 

SUV – 2: Bigger SUVs comes under high price range and are determinant of high living standards of the owners. This esteemed nature of this body type is increasing its demand in the used car market propelling the prices to new heights. 

Compact Crossover: Finally, we have the compact crossover, the prices of which have been oscillating up and down over last few years. However, in the year 2022, the price shot a bit due to mild increase in demand and availability of only a few models in the market. 

This was the essence of latest edition of ThePriceX Insights Report February 2023. SAMIL’s ThePriceX Tool uses machine learning algorithms, simultaneously evaluating a vehicle based on 100+ element including make, model, age, mileage etc., to estimate the right price range. Price indexes are validated by correlating with key industry metrics in a bid to separate the degree of change in used vehicles & equipment prices over time.
