Best Used Cars to Buy in 2022
Happy New Year, folks! Each year, we say, “new year, new car”. But the way car prices are going up and up, buying a new car has become a luxury only the rich can afford. For others, the only way to go is buying used cars. So, let’s rephrase and say “new year, used car”, and help you find the best one.
Wait, this year, we have another thing to deal with: rising petrol prices. Fuel has already become so expensive, and the rates are only increasing. For that reason, we are listing the best fuel-efficient and affordable used cars that you can buy in 2022. Here we go.
1. Japanese 660cc Suzuki Alto
The first used car that’s worth your money is the imported Alto, and we’ll tell you why. Both local and imported Alto are fuel-efficient cars with 18 to 19 kilometers per litre in the city. But the imported Alto is better than the local model in every way. It’s more powerful, more stable, safer, and more comfortable.
The Japanese Alto comes with heated seats, heated steering, cruise control, paddle shifters, and more. If you are into buying a used Alto, better go for the Japanese twin. It will only cost you 1 to 2 lacs more and offer so much more value.
