Are you finally in a position to buy yourself a car that is, at least, new-to-you? Are you weighing up the pros and cons of splurging on a new car versus the sensible frugality of a second-hand car? Why not meet yourself in the middle (so to speak) and get the best of both worlds by investing in a nearly new car? Let’s take a look at some of the advantages you’ll gain by doing so.
You’ll Pay Less
Despite the fact that nearly new cars are not really so different to a brand-new car, you will pay at least ten percent less than the full retail price of a new car. This is because of the way car values are calculated: rather than look at the condition of the individual vehicle, a blanket formula is applied. And this formula assumes that the moment a car is driven off the lot, it is no longer ‘new’ and drops a price bracket or two now being ‘a used vehicle’ even if that ‘usage’ is a matter of mere moments.
You’ll Continue to Pay Less
Having a low retail price to start with will mean that your insurance policies, road taxes, and various other fees – anything based upon the retail price of your car – will automatically be lower, simply because you have already saved money.
Still New for MOT and Warranty Purposes
Often, new cars come with parts and labour warranties, and many nearly new cars are still within the covered period to benefit from these warranties. However, more and more dealers are ensuring a robust second-hand vehicle market by offering their own warranties and assurances with their second-hand cars.

But any car that is older than three must have an MOT test to ensure that it is still roadworthy, and this can be a nuisance for the owners of older cars. Nearly new cars, usually ranging from a few months old to one year, tend to have a nice leeway of two years or more before that first MOT with all its attendant concerns.
It’s Environmentally Kinder
Keeping manufactured products working for longer is infinitely kinder to the world’s resources than mining and processing the raw materials needed to make them from new. Therefore, investing in a new car can damage your green credibility, while taking on a nearly new car (which looks, drives and smells just as nicely!) proves that you are a sustainable and ecologically conscious driver!
