These cars suit most needs and affordability aspects. So, which one of these cars are you bringing home this Diwali?
A large majority of people exchange their old cars when buying a new car for Diwali. While this method might be convenient for some, selling an old car instead of exchange can be more profitable as the basic refurbishment charges are often hidden and borne by the seller itself. You can get around 5% to 10% more value for your used car when selling it, making your new car purchase even more affordable.
