Bangladesh car market is small compared to our neighboring countries. The need for personal vehicles is increasing the demand for cars and making a way for foreign automakers from around the globe to expand their business here in the passenger car segment. But in Bangladesh, there are many facts a buyer has to face. There are so many added charges that you would have to pay to buy a new car. That is why people of Bangladesh are more into used and reconditioned cars. As from a report of bikroy.com in Bangladesh, 50% of cars are reconditioned cars, 45% used cars and only 5% new are in the car market. The Bangladeshi car market has a wide range of vehicles from India, Japan, South Korea, Germany, France, China, Malaysia, the USA and the UK. Among them, India and Japan are the most dominating sources for importing cars in Bangladesh.

Often In Good Condition
