If you’re on a tight budget, you save money on a new car by purchasing the lowest, least-equipped trim level without any extra features. However, buying a used, fully-loaded car is a much better way to enhance your car ownership experience and get the most out of your vehicle. Here’s why.
One of the benefits of buying a used car with all the options is that they’re better at retaining their value. For example, if you buy a used car with a leather interior, heated seats, and built-in navigation, it will be easier to sell that car in a few years at a good price, compared to a newer one with a sparse interior and none of the features that buyers are looking for.
New cars don’t necessarily have more features. Some new models are merely carryovers from the previous year or have only minor enhancements and styling differences. In particular, new and used cars from the same generation tend to have a lot in common.
What this means is that buying a fully loaded used car can often get you many more, high-quality features than buying a more expensive, entry-level new car from the same generation.
