Motorparks asks, should you buy your next car new or used

We are now less than two weeks away from the release of the brand-new 16 registration plate, with thousands of drivers across the UK set to head to a dealership on and around March 1 to explore the new range of vehicles available.

If you are currently wondering whether to opt for a new car or choose a used model instead, Motorparks is here to help.

The British dealership’s latest visual analyses both vehicle markets, focussing on topics such as:

  • The advantages and disadvantages of buying a new car.
  • On the flip side, the pros and cons of buying a used vehicle.
  • Why you shouldn’t ignore issues like clocking, cloning, and cut-and-shut repairs if purchasing a second-hand vehicle.
  • A breakdown of the numbers and letters which makes up a registration plate and what they mean.

Take a look at the full visual below and determine whether you should buy your next car new or used ahead of the launch of the 16 reg plate…
