Buying your dream car is the ultimate milestone for anybody wanting to achieve big things in life. However, in today’s fast-paced life, owning a car has become more of a necessity than a luxury, forcing many people to postpone their dreams of buying ‘that’ car and instead, opting for a second-hand car to get by for a while.
It might seem like a hassle, but buying second-hand cars is now as easy as clicking a button. No more running around from dealer to dealer, haggling for the best prices. With a host of websites offering users a varied selection of used cars to choose from, and even sell their old ones, the task is now as simple and seamless as it can get.
Here’s our list of the top websites in India to buy and sell used cars.
Quikr is a classified advertising platform. Headquartered in Bangalore, Quikr has listings in more than 900 cities in India in categories, including cars. Users can simply list their used cars on the platform and prospective buyers can browse through choices, shortlist, directly chat with the owner and fix up a rate.
CarDekho is one of India’s leading car-search companies that helps users buy cars and bikes. Their website is pretty useful since it carries rich automotive content such as expert reviews, detailed specs and prices, comparisons as well as videos and pictures of car brands and models available in India. The company has also partnered with many auto manufacturers, car dealers and financial institutions to facilitate the purchase and sale of vehicles on their platform.
CarWale is an auto media site that strives to offer car information to buyers and sellers in the most comprehensive way possible. Their platform offers users the opportunity to not just buy and sell, but also research, and even discuss about their car issues, or otherwise.
Much like Quikr, OLX is also a global online marketplace, and one of the largest online classified ads company for multiple things including cars.

It was earlier a part of Times Internet, a subsidiary of the Times of India Group, but was later acquired by CarDekho, to consolidate their position in the online auto classifieds space.
Droom is India’s first and largest online marketplace to buy and sell used cars, bikes, scooters, bicycles, and even airplanes! Yes, you read that right.
