Why a Used Luxury Vehicle May Be Right for You.

Cadillac ATS-V | Stillwater, OK

If you’re searching for a new-to-you vehicle, knowing what you can afford is vital. Although a high-end car might seem out of reach, you can actually get more for your money when you opt for a used luxury vehicle instead of a new one.

Pay less for more.

While having the most recent luxury vehicle might be appealing, going for a pre-owned car or SUV that’s only a year or two older can save you a lot of money. Not to mention, you may be able to afford a higher trim of a used luxury vehicle than of a brand-new car. That means you can get more top-level features and lavish amenities for less.

High-quality features.

If you’re considering settling for a new mid-level car instead of a luxury vehicle — don’t. You can get much more comfort and convenience in the cabin of a used luxury car than in most cheaper models. Imagine sitting on heated and cooling leather seats with a massage function while your music plays on the top-notch speakers of a Bose® premium audio system. Now imagine sitting on cloth seats that don’t have power-adjustable settings or lumbar support while a song rattles through the plastic speakers.
