Our previous “most searched cars” investigation on Carousell’s used car classifieds uncovered a diverse range of tastes, which comes as no surprise really - personal preferences form a large part of car selection. When it comes to splashing the cash, it should tick as many boxes as possible before buyer’s remorse creeps in. Which is why we’re keen to analyse what you’ve clicked on. Divert here if you think that the majority of us are living in dreamland, but findings show that many of us aspire to drive cars made to withstand the test of time.

2016 Honda Vezel Hybrid

Basing a larger car on a hatchback can be a double edged sword, but when the platform in question is the Honda Jazz / Fit, the pendulum swings towards a car that delivers space for the ages. The 2nd-gen Honda Vezel / HR-V might be more than a decade old, but it still looks box fresh. Top it off with a hybrid motor and obtain 15km/l easily - no wonder modern self-charging hybrids, with their brilliant range and fuel economy, are charging ahead with renewed optimism.

2008 Subaru Forester

Designing a Forester based on a more upright, raised SUV silhouette polarised opinions in the late noughties. We fell in love with the boxy wagon styling that defined the first two generations after all. But with the resurgence of crossovers and SUVs coupled with the market’s manic affection for everything JDM, this Forester finds itself lying in the sweet spot for one final flourish.

2016 Mercedes E Class

No quad headlights, no problem. The W213 was the first E Class to do away with those iconic head lamps, bringing it more aligned, design-wise, to the W222 S Class and W205 C Class. But in truth, these don't really matter in Singapore’s context. In an environment where COEs dictate the market, it makes earlier model year W213s that bit more affordable as far as initial outlay is concerned - lower COEs, expired warranties and modern looks. It’s a winning recipe, and you know it…

2020 Toyota Camry

In a similar vein to the W213 E Class, the Camry wasn’t built to look sporty until the XV70 that made its debut in 2017. Its low slung roofline so sleek in this sea of SUVs, we’d even go a step further to suggest that sedans are now way cooler than initially perceived. At this level of depreciation (18k annually) one could well afford to dip their toes in a higher riding Toyota Harrier or Mercedes-Benz GLA. But the jury has spoken - the sedan movement is not dead, yet.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car.
