So that’s a long list of celebrities who own a used car in India. But what are the reasons for owning a used car over buying a brand-new vehicle?

Mega savings

Yes, even celebrities like to save like all of us. The price of the cars depreciate quite quickly, especially if they are luxury brands. For example a used Bentley or Lamborghini will be at least Rs 1 crore cheaper compared to a new one.

Lower depreciation

A new car loses its value the moment it comes out of the showroom. But for a used car, the rate of depreciation is much lower. This ensures that you buy cheap and can sell at a good value to the third owner. This is a win-win situation.

Drive new cars at affordable prices

Since many people like to update their garages very often, going the used car way seems much more feasible. There is an array of choices available in the used car market, which allows celebrities to choose from a massive catalogue of cars. They do not have to spend the amount they would need to spend for a new car and keep the garage fresh and updated.

New-age reliable used car dealerships

The used car market has become extremely organised in recent years. The used car dealerships now certify the vehicles and do multiple point checks to ensure that the vehicle is in the best condition. Used car networks like Big Boyz Toyz offer vehicles in impeccable condition.

Extended warranty

Luxury car dealers offer a range of extended warranty packs that can be extended up to 8 years. The extended warranty offers peace of mind for the used car buyers. This ensures the ownership experience remains similar to the new cars.
