New Or Used Honda Car: Which Should I Buy?

Every year in the UK, used car sales outnumber new car sales by almost three to one. After a year of increasing financial uncertainty, more and more people are being cautious about money, including when it comes to buying new or used Honda cars.

Whether it’s a used or new car, buying a car is an investment and making the right choice can be difficult, especially with so many options available. As an approved Honda dealership, we look at the pros and cons of buying a new Honda car versus second-hand.

Buying New

When buying a new car you buy directly from the manufacturer. This usually means you can specify the exact spec of your new car, including colour, interior and any additional features. Having these options allows you to build your new Honda car precisely how you want it.

With newer cars come new features. As technology advances, new Honda cars not only offer a better user experience and more comfortable drive but also better fuel efficiency and safety. New Honda cars continue to evolve, driving change with amazing electric and hybrid models including our Honda CRV Hybrid and Honda E All Electric.

Buying a new Honda car also means you’ll benefit from manufacturer warranties and any deals that are offered at the time of purchase. At Horizon Honda we always have a fantastic range of offers on new Honda cars including on our new Honda Civic and new Honda Jazz and Crosstar models. With price being perhaps the biggest downside of new cars, Horizon Honda provides a variety of flexible finance options designed to help you buy the new Honda car that you want.

Buying Pre-Owned

When it comes to buying a used Honda car, there is a huge range of options available, which can be both a positive and negative factor when it comes to finding the right vehicle. On one hand, there are so many to choose from that you’re bound to find one that suits you. On the other, it can be a minefield trying to find a used Honda car with the right features, spec, mileage, and even in a colour that you like.

It can also be difficult to find a used Honda car that is in good condition from private sellers. With the biggest downside of buying a used car being its history, purchasing privately will not offer you the same protections as purchasing from a manufacturer-approved dealership. At Honda Horizon only sell highest quality used Honda cars and you can rest assured all vehicles have undergone thorough check by Honda approved technicians. And if there is a problem with the vehicle, our aftersales team are here to help.

Did you know that finance options aren’t only for new cars? If you purchase directly from a Honda dealership you’ll find that there are plenty of amazing finance solutions, deals and offers to make the most of on pre-owned cars. From used Honda Jazz to used Honda Civic or popular SUV used Honda CR-V cars, we offer the best range of used Honda cars at our showrooms in Yeovil, Christchurch, Poole and Dorchester.

Buying a Nearly-New Car

There is a third option when it comes to buying a new or used car; you can buy a nearly new car. Preregistered cars and ex-display models from dealerships are a great way to get your hands on the wheel of a new car at a lower price.

Although there is less choice available than when purchasing a new Honda car, nearly new cars have often only been driven a handful of times and have very few miles on the clock. They’ve also been extremely well cared for and are in excellent condition. What’s more, when purchased directly from a Honda dealership, you’re even likely to get the same great deals available on any new Honda car!
