"What Car?" reports the rather surprising news that it can actually be cheaper to buy a new car than to buy a used one. The discrepancy arises due to the scrappage scheme, which can give you a £2,000 discount if you have an old car to trade in. "What Car?" reports "It's a bizarre market this year: new car prices have already risen by 9.5%, but used car prices are an astonishing 30% higher than they were a year ago."
