need a pre-owned car under 6 lakh for a family member & her 2 dogs

The vehicle, preferably a hatchback, should be a petrol with manual transmission & have a good boot space.

BHPian Mustang Sammy recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Hello all,

Posting this on behalf of a family member. She is looking for a pre-owned vehicle for her and 2 dogs.

Car requirements

  • Petrol engine with manual transmission
  • Hatchback preferred

Required features

Mandatory features

Power windows, Fold-down backseats, Adjustable headrest on the back seat, rear window wiper, good safety rating with at least 2 airbags, ABS/EBD, fog lamps, high seating for visibility, Good boot space and a good service network.

Good to have features

Rear AC vents, High ground clearance for occasional bad road driving, option to easily add and remove the carrier.

All suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Here’s what BHPian GForceEnjoyer had to say about the matter:

From what I’ve personally experienced, I think a used Ford Freestyle 1.2 petrol manual suits each of your requirements except possibly the service aspect and the rear headrests.

I’m unaware of Ford’s aftersales in Pune after their exit, but the car certainly matches all your criteria including ground clearance and visibility. It’s also equipped with a lot of safety features.

This is just one of the many options available, it’s just that I haven’t experienced any other fitting candidates.

Here’s what BHPian lokesharo had to say about the matter:

You can check the Maruti Ignis. It ticks most of the requirements and with the current discounts, Delta will be within your budget.

Here’s what BHPian IshaanIan had to say about the matter:

A Grand Vitara 2.4 liter is really the best vehicle money can buy for this task. It offers a good SUV-like stance without being too large and cumbersome in parking lots, has good ergonomics to aid in the ease of drive-ability, the 2.4 liter petrol offers enough grunt and an excellent mid-range that one can exploit, it is Japanese so reliability is a given and parts are surprisingly easy to come by if you maintain a good relation with whichever the best Maruti workshop is in your city. Look out for something around 3-4lacs as you might have to spend 2 lacs on it at the authorized service center but once that’s done you will have the best petrol hatch for dogs that 6 lacs can buy

If that option sounds too scary to you, then nothing can go wrong with a used Jazz.
