ATLANTA, April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring is the time of year to refresh and recast. If you are in the market to purchase a car this season, consider shopping certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. Dealers and automakers are boasting new and enhanced offers to start spring off strong and convert potential shoppers to buyers.
"Because in-car technology is evolving so quickly and the price of new cars continues to climb, one way that shoppers can get new-car features at a used-car price is with certified pre-owned," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader.
The editors at Autotrader have rounded up some of the top CPO deals this month to help guide car shoppers on the hunt for the right CPO vehicle to reign in the new season.
Autotrader Editors' Top Picks for Certified Pre-Owned Deals for April 2018
BMW's certified pre-owned program was recently retooled and now offers one year and unlimited miles of additional coverage, beyond the 4-year/50,000 mile factory warranty period. They are also offering incentives on CPO BMW's through the end of April to qualified buyers, with 0.9 percent interest for up to 24 months.
Cadillac's certified pre-owned program is giving a special offer on its ATS, a sporty compact coupe, and the Escalade, a full-size luxury SUV. Through the end of May, Cadillac is offering qualified shoppers certified pre-owned versions of both the ATS and the Escalade with 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months, which is a desirable long term for a used-car loan. Cadillac's CPO program is also appealing, as it touts comprehensive coverage for six years or 100,000 miles from the original sale date.
Jaguar's certified pre-owned program is among the best in the car industry, as it touts seven years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive coverage from the original sale date. In April, Jaguar is offering several incentives for qualified shoppers interested in financing a Jaguar in order to make its warranty even more appealing. The best deals are for drivers looking to finance a 2015 XF or a 2016-2017 XJ, as Jaguar is offering 0.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. But even for most other models, Jaguar is offering 1.9-percent interest for up to 36 months and 2.9 percent for 60 months.
Land Rover's certified pre-owned program offers seven years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive coverage from the original sale date, making it one of the top CPO programs in the car industry. In April, Land Rover offers some excellent incentives for qualified shoppers looking to finance a CPO vehicle. The best deal for drivers looking to finance some specific models -- like the 2015 Discovery Sport, LR4 and Evoque – is the 0.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on those vehicles. But Land Rover is also offering 1.9-percent and 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on many other models.
Lincoln's certified pre-owned program offers six years or 100,000 miles of comprehensive coverage from the original sale date. In April, Lincoln's CPO program also offers another excellent benefit: Through the end of June, qualified shoppers can get 2.9 percent interest for up to 66 months.

It's available on most Mercedes-Benz models, including the CLA, C-Class, E-Class, GLA, GLE and GL-Class.
