Smashing new plate bargains
There’s never been a better time to buy a new car, says Which? Car in response to new car sales figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders today.
Sales of new cars were down 21.9%* in February compared to last year, but new registration plates mean that car sales are usually much stronger in March. This year, car buyers’ money will go further than ever as new cars are being sold at substantial discount - and pre-registered** models are even cheaper.

Here are a few of the great deals Which? Car has spotted this week from well established online car brokers - but there’s every chance local main dealers will offer similar, or even better, discounts if you haggle.

* The Ford Fiesta is the UK’s bestselling car at present, but Broadspeed is selling the 1.25 5dr Zetec model on an ‘09’-plate for £10,371 (list price: £11,995). Buying the same car pre-registered costs even less: £9,651.
* The new VW Golf may have only gone on sale in January, but already it’s possible to save more than £2,100 on the sporty 2.0 diesel GT 5dr - £17,649 at Drivethedeal, instead of a list price of £19,814.
* The Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.6 HDi Desire goes for £12,770 on an ‘09’-plate at Broadspeed, or as little as £10,032 for those buying it pre-registered. List price for this model is £16,995 - so you can save nearly £7,000.
* Save around £11,000 on a luxurious Jaguar XJ saloon with the relatively economical 2.7 diesel engine. Drivethedeal is selling new, ‘09’-reg cars for £33,507, instead of a list price of £44,598.

Richard Headland, Editor, Which? Car, says:
“March isn’t usually the time to get a great new car deal, but this year everything’s up for grabs - savvy buyers could find themselves driving off with a bargain ‘09’-plate car if they look in the right places.”
