A recent survey conducted by online classifieds platform for vehicles shows that Gujarat market shows high demand for used compressed natural gas (CNG) cars as compared to rest of India.

It showed that Surat is leading with a demand of 18.35 per cent, followed by Rajkot with a demand of 16.45 per cent and Ahemdabad with a demand of 13.14 per cent.

Moreover, the survey also highlighted some interesting trends in car buying across the country. For example, the survey notes that diesel cars are preferred more in Tier 1 cities assuming that the average distance travelled is higher whereas petrol cars are preferred more in Tier 2 cities.

Then again it says that the most searched used cars online are Maruti Suzuki's Swift, Alto, 800, Wagon R and Swift Dzire; Hyundai's i10, Santro Xing, i20, Honda City and Toyota Innova. Also that nearly 84 per cent customers search for used cars under Rs 5 lakh. However, there is a segregation in that between tier 1 and tier 2 cities; like more than 60 per cent consumers in Tier 2 markets prefer cars below Rs 3 lakh, while almost 50 per cent consumers in Tier 1 markets prefer cars above Rs 3 lakh. It also notes that among Tier 1 cities, Mumbai shows the highest demand for cars above Rs 10 lakh.
