Cars being feted at this month’s Paris Motor Show, currently running at the Pairs Expo Porte de Versailles in France, are more accessible to the general public than ever before, according to popular automotive magazine, Auto Square. Many of the main exhibits at the globally acclaimed motoring show are newer, or concept versions of existing vehicle makes and models that are popular choices on the second-hand car market, due to their reliability, exterior design and strong performance.
Models that caught the eye of visiting media at the Show included the new Renault Espace, which is a newer version of the popular MPV that is a common sight on used car supermarkets’ forecourts. The new Mazda MX-5 was also described as ‘Britain’s favourite Roadster’ and holds its value as a second-hand option.
Even some of the higher-end, luxury brands unveiled at the Show are similar to models available at car supermarkets across Britain. For example, Mercedes, represented in Paris by the sleek lines of the new AMG GT and AMGC 63 Estate models, is a popular name for customers looking for their next second-hand prestige vehicle
Reviews were also favourable at the show for Volkswagen’s concept model, the XL Sport. Volkswagen is a reliable brand and used car buyers are regularly delighted by the performance of second-hand cars from the popular make.
Qamar Rehman, founder of Auto Square said, ” Often, a trip to the Paris Motor Show shows us what dreams are made of and it can be great fun to browse the sleek concept models and imagine ourselves at the wheel. However, many of the cars on display represent fantastic models that are on British roads right now. We’re really looking forward to seeing some great cars for sale at more affordable prices this autumn and winter.
