Compared to other pre-owned vehicles, certified pre-owned models have undergone more extensive, manufacturer-designed inspections. Additionally, CPO vehicles are generally offered with warranty coverage and other benefits. The certified pre-owned definition will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but what does certified pre-owned mean for our brand? We’ve covered everything you need to know about the Jaguar certified pre-owned meaning.



Jaguar CPO Vehicles

With all certified pre-owned cars, the meaning of the CPO label is clear. These three letters are supposed to inspire confidence in the driver who’d like to buy used! Here’s a closer look at what certified pre-owned means for Jaguar:

  • In order to be certified, a given used vehicle must have fewer than 60,000 miles and less than five years on the road.
  • Models that meet these criteria must then pass a 165+ multi-point inspection, designed by the manufacturer in order to ensure lasting quality.
  • Vehicles that pass their inspections are then offered for sale with many benefits, including limited warranty courage and roadside assistance.

Used vs. Certified Pre-Owned vs. New Vehicles

We’ve covered the certified pre-owned definition in detail, but it might still be helpful to see how used, CPO, and new vehicles compare on select points:

  • If you’re hoping to lower your monthly payment or select from a wider range of options, buying a standard used vehicle is a great choice.
  • If you want a balance between the benefits offered by new models and the savings offered by used vehicles, you can’t go wrong with a CPO model.
  • New vehicles are perfect for the driver who values the latest technology. Additionally, drivers who like to lease their vehicles will find that it’s easier to do with new models.
