If you're an Indiana shopper hunting for a new BMW in South Bend, did you know that you have double the options at Basney BMW? Instead of only browsing new BMW inventory, you also have BMW Certified inventory. What's the difference between these BMW selections? That's a good question that your South Bend experts can answer. Based on the budget that you have outlined for your new BMW transportation, you may prefer to shop for a certified pre-owned BMW model instead. However, if you want that classic new-car smell, you can never go wrong with being the first owner or lessee of a new BMW car or SUV.

Key Differences Between New and Certified Pre-Owned BMW

Before we start highlighting how they differ, both inventories only contain models from the BMW lineup. From the BMW 530i sedan to the BMW X5 SUV, only BMW-trademarked vehicles will appear in either selection. The main difference with the new BMW inventory is that these cars and SUVs have never had a previous owner and come from the newest model year (i.e., 2019 or 2020). Whereas, certified pre-owned BMW vehicles are by definition pre-owned vehicles.

Because of their pre-owned background, models from our BMW Certified inventory have unique advantages and characteristics that distinguish them from new BMW inventory. A few examples are that these vehicles:

  • Issue lower prices than what you would find on new BMW models.
  • Receive passing grades on the comprehensive vehicle inspection.
  • Include 24/7 travel protection thanks to BMW Roadside Assistance.
  • Have one-year/unlimited-mile coverage after new vehicle warranty expires.
  • Follow guidelines for acceptable pre-owned BMW model year and mileage.
  • Offer extended vehicle protection through BMW Certified Program.
