If you've been waiting for the right time to buy your next car, then now might be your moment.

As car sales slow down towards the end of the year, dealers are still trying to shift thousands of nearly new cars - many with the latest 67 number plate, and with just a few thousand miles on the clock. With end-of-year targets looming, dealerships are under even more pressure to sell cars, which means that there are some great deals on offer.

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.

Scroll down to see a selection of 2017 nearly new cars. Alternatively, take a look at the best deals on pre-registered cars, which are practically brand new, with less than 100 miles on the clock,.

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. There are limited stocks, so popular cars will sell out fast. All are available from BuyaCar where a finance contribution of £300 is included in the price. If you buy in cash, the price will rise by £300.

Nearly new Seat Ibiza deals: 28% less than list price

The new 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. Biuying a nearly-new version if this class-leading car can save you more than £4,000 on the list price, with finance from around £150 for a 2017 car with the zippy 95 horsepower engine (badged 1.0 TSI 95) and around 1,000 miles on the clock.

There are also plenty of older models available, which are still good cars, if not quite as accomplished as the latest version. The two cars look similar but you can tell them apart by looking at the headlights. Older cars have lights that slope downwards towards the grille, into a point. On the newer cars, the bottom edge of the headlights slopes upwards towards the grille, as seen in the image above.

Nearly new Fiat 500 deals: 36% less than list price

The cute, retro design of the Fiat 500 still turns heads and there's still strong demand for the small city car. But you can save £4,500 by opting for a nearly new example instead. A mid-range Pop Star car with around 2,000 miles and in a bright colour can be yours for less than £8,000. You could go for the even cheaper entry-level Pop version but that would mean missing out on the Pop Star’s air-conditioning, alloy wheels, painted side mirrors and 50/50-split folding rear seats.

Nearly new Kia Sportage deals: 16% less than list price

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 1.7 diesel model that was first registered before April 2017, and it will be taxed under the previous road tax system, so it will cost you £30 a year, rather than £140 for more recent models. It's fairly efficient too with an official fuel economy figure of more than 60mpg. In real-world driving, you should get at least 45mpg.

Nearly new Volvo XC90 deals: 17% less than list price

One of the most desirable large family cars on the market, the Volvo XC90 has the rugged design four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles and interior space of a classis sport utility vehicle (SUV), co,bined with a stylish Scandinavian design.

Inside the seven-seat car is a wood, metal and leather-covered interior. A large touchscreen in the dashboard is the centrepiece of a soothing, minimalist design. It's not a cheap car - even though you can save more than £9,000 on a high-specification, nearly new Inscription model, but you can feel the quality.

Nearly new Jaguar XE deals: 28% less than list price

There are plenty of great deals on nearly new Jaguar XEs at the moment, with many cars being registered in March 2017, before the new road tax rules took effect. Despite the fact that the featured car is powerful, and capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds, it costs just £30 a year to tax - as long as you find a car that was registered before April this year.

As its name suggests, R-Sport is the sporty trim (18in alloy wheels, sports seats, chunky additions to the bodywork and sports suspension) but if you prefer something less aggressive, Prestige versions with the same engine and automatic gearbox but with leather seats, heated in the front, are available for around the same price.

Nearly new Hyundai i30 deals: 27% less than list price

The i30 hatchback, which competes with models such as the VW Golf and Ford Focus, has so much going for it, it’s hard to know where to start. Obviously, saving over £5,000 on one that’s less than a year old is a good place. Not only that, because many were registered before April 2017, you save around £100 a year on road tax compared with today’s new car rates.

Cars fitted with a zippy 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol motor that yields good economy cost under £15,000. On top of that there’s the i30’s excellent standard safety kit that includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and automatically dipping headlights. SE Nav is the best trim and brings a sat nav with an 8.0-inch touchscreen to the table. Finally, you'll have more than four years of Hyundai’s excellent five-year new car warranty remaining.

Nearly new Vauxhall Astra deals: 35% less than list price

Whatever your circumstances, there's probably a Vauxhall Astra to suit you. The car featured is a quick 1.4 SRi petrol turbo hatchback but you can choose from the larger estate, a fuel-sipping 1.0 petrol turbo or the high-mileage version of choice - the 1.6 diesel.

The current Astra is a vast improvement on the old: lighter, sharper looking, roomier, more fun to drive and comfortable.. SRi trim brings sporty 17in alloy wheels, sports seats, air-con and a touchscreen infotainment system. Want a sat nav? There’s an SRi Nav version, too, for around the same price.

Nearly new Renault Scenic deals: 29% less than list price

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 a £7,000 saving on the current new list price. Like any nearly new car registered before 1 April 2017, it’s cheaper to tax than today’s new cars that will cost £140 a year.
