When you buy a new car it loses about 15% or more of its value just by rolling off the lot.

 The value of a new car depreciates much faster than an old car. So you automatically lose money right from the start.

 To show you what I mean, If you buy a new Maruti Suzuki Baleno it will cost you RS. 8 LAKH approx. Now, you’re going to sell it after a year expecting that its value depreciates at least 25%, you will have only the choice to sell it.

  1. Taxation & Registration Expenses

Buying a used car will protect your pocket from paying you additional expenses like registration fees, road taxes, etc. As they were paid by the previous owner of the car. While buying a new car, you should keep in your mind you have to incur additional charges on registration fees and road taxes.

So if you have decided to buy a used car, get it checked and thoroughly inspected by a good mechanic before buying it. Also, take the service history and keep the loan calculation in mind. And take an old car only if you want the purpose of learning and practicing it.  

And if you have a good business, you can go for a new car. Buying a new car will always be better than an old car.
