C'est une voiture d'occasion?- Non, elle ou c'est...
Shouldn't the second sentence in this example read, Non, c'est neuf or Non, c'est nouveau, with a masculine adjective?
This relates to:Neuf vs nouveau = New -
It is "la voiture", therefore "elle" and "neuve" both are in the feminine form since they refer to it. You don't say "c'est.." because you refer to a specific vehicle, in which case you use "elle" instead of the impersonal "ce".
