A nearly new car is one that has low mileage and is usually about a year old.
Nearly new cars are a smart way to drive a car with all the very latest spec and technology, at less cost than when it was brand new. You can save £1,000s on the brand new price of the car and yet have all the advantages in terms of the latest tech – what’s not to like?
Nearly new cars offer great value for money, because they’re still relatively new, but will save you a lot of money compared to a new car.
The first year of a cars life is when it depreciates the most, so by buying after its first year you’ve saved yourself a lot of money and still get the benefits of a new car such as already having been serviced by a manufacturer approved dealer, low-mileage, warranty, no MOTs for a couple of years. Plus, if you then decide to sell after a few years, you’ll get much closer to what you paid for it than if you had bought new.
The main difference between the two is that a nearly new car has had an owner before, whereas a pre-reg car hasn’t. Nearly new cars have usually been leased by a fleet company before, so they will have had a previous driver and will have done a few thousand miles. Pre-reg on the other hand are cars that the dealership needed to register, but have had no previous owners and usually only have delivery mileage on.
