2019 ‘could be the year of the used car’

USED car buyers could take advantage of an influx of ex-PCP models three years after the peak in finance packages, says CarGurus.

The online automotive marketplace has indicated that there is a surge in dealer stock of good-condition, low-mileage, three-year-old cars.

New car sales reached a record high of 2,692,786 registrations in 2016, according to SMMT figures, with an estimated 86 per cent bought on finance contracts, the most common of which were three-year personal contract purchase (PCP) and personal contract hire (PCH) plans.
