Nearly new cars - latest deals

Save more than £10,000 on some models with the best deals on nearly new cars

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 dealerships are trying to shift thousands of models - many with the latest 18 number plate - ahead of a change in emissions legislation that’s expected to lead to a glut of nearly-new models.

This means that there are some great deals on offer for cars with just a few thousand miles on the clock. These range from a third off some superminis to a £10,000 saving on some 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 or bought by customers who changed their mind.

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 Seat Ibiza deal

Save £4,104 on new car list price

Our pick Seat Ibiza 1.0 TSI SE (2017, 6,871 miles)
Typical price £10,495  Monthly cost 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 £3,960 on new car list price

Our pick Fiat 500 Lounge 1.2 (2017, 8,471 miles)
Typical price £9,600  Monthly cost from £147

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 almost £4,000 to be made on nearly-new models with a high specification.

A 2017 Lounge model with around 8,500 miles on the clock and in a bright colour can be yours for less than £150 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 £3,450 on new car list price

Our pick Kia Sportage 2 1.6 GDi (2018, 2,750 miles)
Typical price £18,000  Monthly cost from £170

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 new car list price

Our pick Audi Q3 Sport 1.4 TFSI (2018, 4,000 miles)
Typical price £23,000  Monthly cost 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 £12,425 on new car list price

Our pick Mercedes C220d AMG Line Premium (2018, 5,000 miles)
Typical price £25,950  Monthly cost from £351

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 £12,500 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 £12,265 on new car list price

Our pick Jaguar XE Prestige 2.0d 163PS Auto (2017, 1,353 miles)
Typical price £22,300  Monthly cost from £314

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 £12,000 on a mid-range Prestige model with automatic gearbox.

These cars include leather seats, heated in the front, mood lighting and automatic emergency braking as standard.

Nearly new Vauxhall Astra deal

Save £5,305 on new car list price

Our pick Vauxhall Astra 1.0T ecoTEC Design (2017, 2,655 miles)
Typical price £12,495  Monthly cost from £95

Whatever your circumstances, there's probably a Vauxhall Astra to suit you. The car featured is a fuel-sipping 1-litre petrol version, but you can also choose from the quick 1.4 SRi petrol turbo; the larger Sports Tourer estate; or the high-mileage version of choice - the 1.6 diesel.

Entry-level Design trim includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control and a 7in touchscreen with digital radio, plus Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for straightforward control of phone apps - including messaging and navigation. You'll pay around £1,000 more for a sportier SRi version with larger alloy wheels and sports seats.

Nearly new Renault Scenic deal

Save £8,640 on new car list price

Our pick Renault Scenic dCi 110 Dynamique S Nav (2017, 2,795 miles)
Typical price £16,950  Monthly cost from £253

Renault's Scenic is meant to offer the practicality of a people carrier but without the minibus-like design that marks it out as a dreary family car. That's why you'll find 19in alloy wheels as standard and a selection of vibrant colours.

Inside there are copious storage solutions, individual rear seats that slide and fold (they don't come out) and the higher driving position of a crossover. You can pick up a car that's barely a year old, with an £8,640 saving on the current new list price.
