There are so many choices when it comes to buying a car that can be difficult to choose not only the car you want, but how it’s bought and how old it is.
Some people just never consider a brand-new car, citing the reduced purchase price and operational costs as major incentives for buying used. But a new car can be much cheaper than you think.
Here are the most compelling reasons to choose a brand-new motor:
You can choose the right colour and specifications
It sounds trivial, but if you buy a car that is really new, you can have it exactly how you like it, with a choice of factory features and also choose from a list of accessories from the dealer.
You may have to wait for your car to be built to order, but this is quite exciting as well. Plus, you do not need to compromise. You can choose your car exactly how you want.
You get the latest offers
Car manufacturers try harder than ever to get your business, so there are some very attractive deals out there right now. And we’re not just talking financial packages – there are some PCP schemes which include insurance and road tax, so all you need to worry about is the monthly payment and the cost of fuel you put in the tank.
You can also choose how you buy – whether PCP, Hire Purchase, loan or direct cash purchase – whatever works best for your situation.

You do not need to worry about history
Simple but true. As the first and only owner of the car, you do not have to worry about how it has been driven in the past, what parts it has had, what’s been replaced and whether or not it has been in an accident.
You have the full support of the main dealer warranty
If something does break, you have a warranty to fall back on, so you do not have to incur any unexpected bills. You can also add a service plan to your financial package, so it is included in your monthly payment. Choosing a car with a warranty of five or seven years, and you’re not going to have to worry about the cost of your automobile for a decent time.
You can reject it if it is not for you
When you buy a new car, if it is not right or there is something wrong that cannot be easily repaired, you can reject it outright and request a replacement. You also have the basic consumer rights, which means you can hand back the car within 30 days if it is not for you and pay only the projected depreciation costs – although this is very rare.
The smell of a new car
Who can resist the allure of a new car when it offers a combination of smell, fresh fabrics and leather and a feeling of ‘newness’ that you just cannot get with a used car? It’s intoxicating.
