Lexus has an unrivalled reputation for excellence. It's ingrained into their DNA. The brand doesn't just build cars - it crafts them using the principles of Takumi, the essence of the artisan. Every Lexus that rolls off the production line has been made with the human touch at its heart. That dedication to luxury and excellence is what puts Lexus at the top of the automotive hierarchy. Whether you buy a brand new car or go for a pre-owned option, you'll discover that Takumi principle for yourself. But if you're new to the world of Lexus luxury cars, should you go for a new or used car?
Buying new Lexus
That 'new car smell'. The pristine paintwork and flawless interior. The purr of a brand new engine straight out of the crate. A new car is an aspirational purchase that you think carefully about before committing. You do your research. You look at everything on offer, and you test drive repeatedly before you make that final decision. A new car delivers plenty of smiles-per-miles as you become acquainted with your new best friend.
With a Lexus, you get all of that and so much more. You get the advantage of innovative technology that delivers a perfect combination of power and efficiency. If you're keen on going green, then a hybrid option gives you more efficient fuel economy around town, but with that long-legged performance for life on the open road. It's a synergetic balance of exhilarating performance and bold design, topped off with a dash of imaginative technology.
Thanks to a variety of finance deals, buying a new Lexus is now within reach of most people. You have the choice of finance that allows you to buy outright or a lease agreement so you can update your Lexus every couple of years. It’s this flexibility that makes buying a new Lexus a pleasure.
Buying a pre-owned Lexus
Let's quickly talk about one issue that all cars have – depreciation. No matter how good a new vehicle is, as soon as the wheels roll off the forecourt, the car starts to drop in value. However, not all depreciate at the same rate, and one of the big plus points for used Lexus sedans and SUVs is that they hold their value well compared to other makes in their class. This means that when the time comes to swap your Lexus for a newer model you’ll also get a better return on a trade-in. That makes a pre-owned Lexus great value for money.
The key plus-point for a used Lexus is price. If you want to buy used cars instead of a new one, you'll get a lot more car for your money. Whether you go for a 2019 ES 350, an ES Hybrid with its exceptional fuel economy, or the rugged good looks of a GX 460, a used luxury car doesn't let you down on quality, reliability or value for money. You'll also find plenty of outstanding finance offers available for pre-owned cars too, making them even more affordable.
Pre-owned cars also have another ace up their sleeve – they’re ‘pre-tested’. Top-quality used cars may have a few kilometres on the clock, but you can be confident that by the time you get behind the wheel that the powertrain has been well tested and settled in. Any teething problems will have already been sorted out, and you should have thousands of kilometres of happy, trouble-free motoring.
