Top Premium Car Brands Ideal for Second-Hand Purchase

Any car enthusiast would leap at the idea of owning a luxury car made by one of the top premium brands. Unfortunately, they are always priced out of the common person’s reach. But one look at the luxury used car market tells a different story. Given their premium tag, we often lose sight of a second-hand car being within our budget and waiting to be bought. With a second-hand car loan, owning a luxury car is no longer out of reach. Here we look at some awe-inspiring car brands that can make you entice and dream in equal measures.


Mercedes-Benz C Class saw a fifth-generation launch recently, but plenty of early models of this variant are now available in the second-hand car market at prices below Rs 5 lakhs. With better horsepower, the E-class models in decent shape are available in the Rs 5-10 lakhs price range. If the budget holds you back, a used car loan can be your best bet in owning a Mercedes-Benz.

  • Toyota


The Japanese carmaker produces high-end models such as Camry and Land Cruiser, challenging elite European brands. The Land Cruiser has been priced close to Rs 1 crore; however, early models of this car are available at a shocking Rs 6 lakhs in the used car segment. The luxury sedan Camry is also available at prices below Rs 5 lakhs in used car listings. The car’s age could be a factor in cities where older cars are not allowed. However, you can expect good performance from these premium cars built to last.

  • BMW


German giant BMW is quite popular across India for its performance and brand value. You can find a decent 8 to 10-year-old BMW 5 series for less than Rs 15 lakhs on popular listing sites. Priced at over Rs 1.3 crores, the BMW 7 series can be found below Rs 20 lakhs, achievable with a used car loan.

  • Audi


Volkswagen owns many car brands, but Audi’s popularity is telling in India. Audi A6 offers a luxurious ride with an impeccable stance and is priced at over Rs 55 lakhs. A6 models aged below ten years are available for Rs 15 lakhs or less. The sportier A4 is priced lower at around Rs 42 lakhs, but its 10-year-old avatar can be seen listed at less than Rs 10 lakhs.

  • Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover

If you want to add an Anglo-Indian touch to your choice of luxury car, less than 10-year-old Jaguar XFs could be available at around Rs 10 lakhs only.

A premium SUV from the same brand, the Range Rover Evoque, has been spotted at prices below Rs 20 lakhs in the second-hand car market. Driving home the luxury car you choose is possible with competitive used car loan interest rates.
