Mention you’re buying a brand-new car and you’ll be met with incredulous looks and mutterings of ‘money to burn’ and ‘totally irresponsible’ under people’s breath. But with over 1.7 million cars built in the UK in 2016, there’s obviously a growing demand for people wishing to buy a brand-new car.

Buying new gives you the option to get exactly what you want without any compromises.
Dealers notoriously offer great deals when you buy new. From cheaper finance to guarantees, warranties and help with insurance, you’re bound to find a deal to suit your circumstances. What’s more, you’ll also be able to look at other schemes such as personal car leasing plans from reputable companies like ZenAuto.

All new cars will come with a warranty from the manufacturer and the longer the warranty the more confident the manufacturer is about their car! A 5-year warranty is a pretty good deal, but you may also come across other warranty types which may offer a 7-year warranty as long as the mileage is kept to under a 100,000. Make sure you read the small print, so you know what will be and what won’t be covered under the warranty. Faulty consumable parts for instance should be covered but consumable items such as brakes and tyres won’t be.
