The Europe used car market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.70% during 2023-2028. The growing need for an affordable or budget-friendly car option, the rising availability of financing options by providers, and the introduction of extended warranties across the country are among the key factors driving the market growth.
A used car refers to a previously owned vehicle that is being sold again. It is an automobile that has been previously driven by one or more owners before it becomes available for purchase. Used cars are an alternative option for individuals who are looking to buy a vehicle but prefer a more affordable or budget-friendly option. They can be found at various dealerships, private sellers, and online platforms. Used cars come in a wide range of makes, models, and conditions, offering buyers a diverse selection to choose from. These vehicles may have varying mileage, wear and tear, and maintenance histories, which should be considered by prospective buyers. While some used cars may be older models, others may still be relatively new and in excellent condition. The purchase of a used car often provides a cost-saving advantage over buying a brand-new vehicle, making it a popular choice among budget-conscious consumers.
