Used or new? So many questions


So I'm finally convinced it is time to retire my 33 year old Puch to just commuting and get something better for my longer rides ( 50+). I really like the Synapse and the Z85 that I tried at the LBS but there are soooo many used bikes out there, I'm wondering if I should opt for used and use the savings for upgrades. So 2 questions ...
1. Is new much better than say a 5 year old bike?
2. What else is similar to the Synapse and Z series that I should consider?

Thanks for your help.
