Fancy a high-riding, practically new SUV but not willing to pay a high price? One of these pre-registered SUV deals could fit the bill

Searching for the best value offers on virtually brand new SUVs? A pre-registered deal is likely to put a smile on your face. Buying a car with just 10 miles on the clock can save you thousands of pounds, in some cases slashing 25% off the price of an effectively brand new model. The only difference is that you won't be classed as the first owner.

If that's the kind of saving that takes your fancy then you've come to the right place. Here at BuyaCar we have hundreds of pre-registered deals on the latest SUVs and crossovers, and we've picked out four of the best here. All are available with strong value finance offers, so you can take advantage of low monthly payments or low cash prices - the choice is yours.

Dealers normally pre-register cars to hit sales targets - effectively selling the car to themselves - so there's never a shortage of pre-reg vehicles available, with plenty of engine, colour and specification options, too. Better still, these cars are all built and ready to go. There's no waiting list, all you have to do is make your order and we'll deliver the car straight to your door.

So if you're interested in getting hold of an extremely low-mileage car at a substantial discount, there's no better time to take a look at some outstanding pre-registered car deals. Take your pick and then the car is delivered to your door.

Pre-registered crossover and SUV deals

List prices correct as of January 2021

Pre-registered Nissan X-Trail deals

Nissan X-Trail dCi 150 N-Connecta 4WD list price: £32,535
BuyaCar price Limited stock

Nissan's largest SUV brings potential for seven seats in an shell not that much larger than the hugely popular Nissan Qashqai. It's 246mm longer, 14mm wider and 120mm taller than the Qashqai, but still smaller than a BMW X3 which is only available with seating for five.

This does mean that boot space with all seven seats up is only 135 litres, so the X-Trail works best if you only want to carry lots of luggage or lots of people - never both at the same time. Fold the seats down though and you'll open up 1,996 litres, which is more than the larger Volvo XC90. So the practicality is there if you need it.

Although the 1.7-litre diesel engine is neither fast nor particularly economical - you'll be looking at around 40mpg in real world conditions, you do get good levels of equipment with N-Connecta models including cruise control, a height adjustable driver's seat and a powered hands-free tailgate.

The X-Trail is cheaper than rivals like the Skoda Kodiaq or Land Rover Discovery Sport to begin with, and pre-registered deals offer a handy saving on these, especially considering we have pre-registered Nissan X-Trail models with as little as four miles available on BuyaCar.


Pre-registered Volkswagen Touareg deals

Volkswagen Touareg 3.0 V6 TDi SCR 4MOTION R-Line list price: £53,660
BuyaCar price Limited stock

Promising Audi quality and comfort at Volkswagen prices, along with the carrying capacity of a small barn, you can make an argument that the Volkswagen Touareg represents good value in pre-registered form.

Of course, that argument is much more persuasive when you take into account pre-reg discounts on the mid-range R-Line model, which have been known to slash more than £10,000 off the list price for an SUV that's still still fresh on the market and proving to be hugely popular.

The lengthy list of standard equipment includes leather seats, a motorised hatchback, four-zone climate control, rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control, which adjusts the car's speed to maintain a safe distance behind the vehicle ahead.


Pre-registered Hyundai Santa Fe deals

Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 Premium SE Auto list price: £44,465
BuyaCar price Limited stock

The latest Hyundai Santa Fe has been on sale since 2018 and much like everything else coming from the South Korean brand at the moment it showcases classy styling with a modern and high-tech interior. If you're looking for a comfortable and capable SUV the Santa Fe will deliver, and with pre-reg prices swiping as much as £8,000 off the price of a brand new one it's reasonably good value for money, too.

Inside, all Santa Fe models come with an alluring leather-look interior, with a leather steering wheel and gear knob also included. There's Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while an eight-inch touchscreen media display comes readily equipped with sat-nav. Premium SE models benefit from a head-up display beaming information onto the windscreen and a memory function for the adjustable drivers' seat. 

If you're in need of a seven-seater, the Santa Fe can cater for that too, with three rows of seats all offering decent space for short journeys, although the rear two seats are better suited to children. Boot space with the back seats folded down can stretch from 625 litres to a whopping 1,625 litres if you fold down all five of the rear seats, so there's space for plenty of luggage if you're prepared to leave some family behind.


Pre-registered Seat Ateca deals

Seat Ateca 1.5 TSI 150 EVO SE Auto list price: £27,215
BuyaCar price from: £22,490
Monthly finance from: £314*

The latest Seat Ateca was first introduced in 2018 and it's received periodic updates since then. A 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 150hp was added to the range in 2019, giving SE trim in particular a more punchy petrol option.

That engine will deliver around 40mpg during a typical journey, which is about what you'd expect from a car this size, although diesel options should prove to be more economical. 

More importantly for a practical SUV though is boot space, and the Ateca offers a useful 510 litres with all five seats up which expands to 1,604 litres with the seats down. It's a good size, bigger than what you get in a Nissan Qashqai.

Perhaps better than all of that is the current price they're available for on BuyaCar, with savings of almost £7,000 on virtually brand new Seat Ateca SE models.
