Here are 5 of the most popular and most searched for used cars on South Africa’s most loved car website, Cars.co.za!
New cars are increasingly becoming prohibitively expensive for many South Africans, especially in the current economic climate. However, the used car market provides car buyers with an endless amount of choice to suit just about any budget.
It’s therefore not surprising that many consumers are turning to the used car market to find their next car in these cash-strapped times. Provided that consumers take the time to research and shop around, there are high-value deals to be had on the used car market.
There are many advantages to buying a used car and perhaps the most pertinent (depending on the used car) is that the cost of depreciation of the vehicle has already been absorbed by the previous owner. Another advantage is that you can effectively get more car for your money in the used car market as opposed to buying a new car for the same amount of money.
Cars.co.za currently has nearly 62 000 used cars listed on site from all major brands and covering all price ranges. More so, if you need car buying assistance, we encourage you to reach out to our experienced team of car journalists who will be happy to offer advice and guidance.
