Canny car buyers saving £1000s by snapping up brand-new models for less than the second-hand equivalent


- Advertisment -

CANNY car buyers can save thousands by snapping up a brand new model for less than the second-hand equivalent.

The Covid crisis means desperate dealers are slashing the prices on the latest motors.

But the used market has failed to keep pace with the crash. A Sun probe reveals new cars are up to £4,000 less than second-hand vehicles with thousands of miles on the clock.

Examples came from Audi, BMW, Nissan, Skoda and Ford.

A new Audi A3 Cabriolet was on sale for £30,950 after dealers reduced the price by £6,438.

But a used version with 3,000 miles on the clock was on for £34,990 – £4,000 more.

A BMW X3 was available new for £50,737, compared with £53,480 for one which had already done 3,974 miles.

We also found mid-range bargains on sites including What Car? and Auto Trader. A new Ford Focus costs £26,086 after a discount of £1,194 – £2,000 less than the same car with 4,999 miles.

A BMW X3 was available new for £50,737, compared with £53,480 for one which had already done 3,974 miles

And a Skoda Octavia was £23,180 new online, while a used version with 1,499 miles on the clock was for sale on the same site for £700 more.

The AA said: “The car market is a true market, where shopping around and hunting for deals can mean big savings.

“When stressed, like now with the slump in new car sales, it often throws up anomalies that can produce something spectacular for the canny buyer.”
