Nearly new cars - latest deals

Save more than £15,000 on some nearly new car deals, with low-rate finance available too

They include a warranty, current technology and the latest design, but cost thousands of pounds less than a brand new model.

Buying nearly new can make the latest cars affordable, particularly now as dealershps are awash with 2018 models, often with just a few thousand miles on the clock. You can save a third off some small cars, and up to £10,000 on certain tall four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles (SUVs). All come with the remainder of the manufacturer's warranty, a range of flexible finance options and you'll probably still be able to detect that new car smell.

Nearly new cars may have been registered by dealers to meet targets, so can no longer be sold as brand new. Others could have been used as demonstrators, bought by customers who changed their mind, or used by fleets for a short period.

All are available from BuyaCar where a finance contribution is included in the price, so this won't apply if you're buying in cash. Most are listed on the site with several pictures; the stock images below don't show the exact specification.

Nearly new small car deals

Nearly new Honda Jazz deal

Save £3,612 on list price
Typical BuyaCar price

Typical example Honda Jazz 1.3 S (2018, 12,000 miles)
Price £10,748 Monthly finance payments from £158

You'll struggle to find a small car that's more practical than the Honda Jazz. Behind its egg-shaped interior is enough legroom for five adults and a clever interior with features such as rear seat cushions that flip up - like they do in the cinema - to create more space for luggage in the footwells.

Prices for nearly-new 2018 cars start at less than £11,000. These are entry-level S models, which have air conditioning,. Bluetooth and cruise control, but not the black wheels and styling additions of the Sport model above. Mileage is on the high-side at around 12,000 miles, but Honda's excellent reliability record should provide some reassurance. The brand was ranked 3 out of 26 for reliability in the latest Auto Express Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

Nearly new Seat Ibiza deal

Save £4,104 on list price
Typical BuyaCar price

Typical example Seat Ibiza 1.0 TSI SE (2017, 6,871 miles)
Price £10,495  
Monthly finance payments from £170

The Seat Ibiza is a family car in all but size: it's got plenty of interior space, hi-tech options, a comfortable ride and is nimble in corners too. Buying a nearly-new version of this class-leading car can save you more than £4,000 on the list price, with finance from around £170 for a 2017 entry-level SE car with the zippy 95 horsepower engine (badged 1.0 TSI 95) and around 7,000 miles on the clock.

The deal is even better than it appears, as Seat no longer sells this combination brand new. Anyone wanting the 1.0 TSI engine in a new car would have to opt for a higher specification car. The least-expensive option is the mid-range SE Technology trim level, which has a larger touchscreen and sat-nav, along with a list price of £16,225.

The current version of the Seat Ibiza was launched last year and there are many older models available, which are good value, if not quite as accomplished as the latest car. The two cars look similar but the headlights are different. Older cars have lights that slope downwards towards the grille. On the newer cars, the bottom edge of the headlights slopes upwards, as seen in the image above.

Nearly new Fiat 500 deal

Save £5,065 on list price
BuyaCar price

Typical example Fiat 500 Lounge 1.2 (2017, 8,000 miles)
Price £8,495 Monthly finance payments from £130

The cute, retro design of the Fiat 500 still turns heads and there's still strong demand for the small city car. However, there are now substantial savings of more than £5,000 to be made on nearly-new models with a high specification.

A 2017 Lounge model with around 8,000 miles on the clock and in a bright colour can be yours for £130 per month. Prices are even cheaper for the entry-level Pop version but that would mean missing out on the Lounge’s air-conditioning, alloy wheels, dashboard touchscreen with Bluetooth, and parking sensors.

Nearly new crossover and SUV deals

Nearly new Kia Sportage deal

Save £4,710 on list price
Typical BuyaCar price

Typical example Kia Sportage 2 1.6 GDi (2018, 12,000 miles)
Price £17,695  
Monthly finance payments from £240

There are plenty of family crossovers on the market, which combine the comfort and fuel economy of a family hatchback with the higher driving position of an off-road car. But the Sportage stands out, thanks to its seven-year warranty from new and distinctive design.

It's also spacious, practical and well equipped; the '2' model featured comes with alloy wheels, sat-nav and a reversing camera. Choose a petrol-powered GDi model and you'll make a decent saving on a car that was first registered this year. Diesel models are available with similar discounts and these will bring substantial fuel savings, with real-world fuel economy of around 45mpg - 10mpg better than the petrol.

Nearly new Audi Q3 deal

Save £4,915 on list price
Typical BuyaCar price

Typical example Audi Q3 Sport 1.4 TFSI (2018, 4,000 miles)
Price £23,000 Monthly finance payments from £300

The Audi Q3 will have been replaced by an all-new model by the end of the year, and the imminent arrival is helping to make the current version even more affordable to nearly-new buyers.

The small family-sized crossover combines the mechanical parts from the A3 hatchback with a taller design, giving drivers a better view of the road and passengers more headroom. The boot is bigger than the one you'll find in the A3 too.

The savings are already enormous, with 2018 petrol-powered cars selling for almost £5,000 less than the new list price. The cheapest cars in this age bracket are Sport models, which include a screen with sat-nav, digital radio and Bluetooth; parking sensors; and climate control.

Nearly new Mercedes C-Class deal

Save £13,385 on list price
Typical BuyaCar price

Typical example Mercedes C220d AMG Line Premium (2017, 12,000 miles)
Price £24,990 Monthly finance payments from £354

An updated version of the Mercedes C-Class has gone on sale, with some minor styling changes and updated technology. So if you don't mind foregoing the larger dashboard screen and improved engines of the latest car, than you can save thousands of pounds on a well-equipped nearly-new C-Class.

A diesel-powered C220d in top-of-the-range AMG Line trim, with the additional Premium pack (which adds a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and keyless start) is almost £13,500 less than its list price. It's an even better deal when you compare it to the updated version, which costs more than £40,000 before discounts.

Nearly new Jaguar XE deal

Save £16,121 on list price
BuyaCar price

Typical example Jaguar XE Prestige 2.0d (180) Auto (2017, 9,000 miles)
Price £21,344  
Monthly finance payments from £290

Jaguar's medium-sized family car offers an excellent blend of sportiness and comfort that comes close to matching the BMW 3 Series. However, it's not quite as popular as the German car, which leads to huge savings of more than £16,000 on a high-end Prestige model with automatic gearbox.

These cars include leather seats, heated in the front, mood lighting and 18in alloy wheels as standard.

Nearly new Ford Focus deal

Save £8,540 on list price
BuyaCar price

Our pick Ford Focus Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost (2017, 9,000 miles)
Typical price £13,000 Monthly cost from £193

There’s a new Ford Focus now on sale. This means that the ‘old shape’ Ford Focus is being heavily discounted at the moment.

You can get yourself a one-year old Titanium model complete with City Stop AEB (which brakes the car automatically if it senses a low-speed shunt coming), parking sensors, and rain-sensing wipers for around £13,000, or from £193 a month. That’s a massive saving of £8,540 when compared to buying new.

Nearly new Kia Carens deal

Save £6,410 on list price
BuyaCar price

Typical example Kia Carens 2 1.7 CRDi Auto (2017, 10,000 miles)
Price £15,995  
Monthly finance payments from £245

You might not have heard much about the Kia Carens, but it’s quietly become a contender for the best-seven-seat car. Older versions were more budget-oriented, but this latest model comes with soft-touch interior surfaces, a cooled glovebox and air conditioning as standard.

It looks more car-like than other people carriers, plus all Carens come with seven seats. You can pick up a nearly-new diesel model from just over £15,000, offering a significant saving of almost £6,500 when compared to new.
