Nearly everyone loves that new car smell, but when in the market for something mid-range, there are many advantages of buying used cars.
1. Cost

Mid-range used cars are cheaper, so you’ll definitely be able to purchase a better model than if you bought new. This will allow you to dream a little bigger and your money to go further. You might even be able to afford some add-ons afterwards, such as upgrading the stereo.

2. Depreciation
Sometimes, buying a used car is a much more sensible investment than buying a car new. The initial depreciation will have already occurred as soon as the car was driven off the lot by its original owner. You’ll get a much better price and be able to recoup more of your money when selling in the future. This makes buying a mid-range used car a smart investment.

 3. Variety and choice

When buying a used car, you’ll find you have much more variety than when buying new. You won’t be confined to only looking at cars released in the last few years, which means you’ll have a much greater selection to choose from. This freedom should help you to choose the right car for you. If you find the right deal at the right price, you could walk away with the vehicle you’ve always wanted.
 4. Less worry and stress
Buying a car fresh off the line is undoubtedly an exciting experience but it can also be very mentally draining. The first time you notice a stone has been thrown up by the tires and scratched the paintwork, or that a tree branch has scratched a side window, isn’t very nice at all. With mid-range used cars, you’ll feel less pressure to keep them in absolutely perfect condition – and simply enjoy driving them!
