Buying a used luxury car saves a lot of money on the sticker price rather than purchasing a brand new one.

A car is a depreciating asset, as the value of a brand-new car drops substantially immediately after it goes out of the showroom. On the other hand, the value of used cars drops at a slower pace than brand-new cars. This is not just the case for mass-market cars but for luxury cars too. Hence, many financial experts suggest opting for a good value-for-money pre-owned car instead of buying a brand-new one. With the increasing preference for used cars, these pre-owned vehicles are not seen anymore as a sign of a lack of affordability. This is probably one reason why celebrities across different sectors like sports, business and showbiz are seen buying used luxury cars. This strategy helps to shave off a bulk of the sticker price while at the same time keeping the prestige factor intact.

Buying a luxury used car helps the buyer to save a lot on the sticker price. Besides that, the value of a used luxury car remains pretty high even during its second ownership, as the rate of value depreciation is significantly slower. This allows even the second owner to sell the car at a good value.
