Slow Demand for These Car Brands Means Great Deals

With a daunting number of brands and models to choose from, there’s almost certainly a car out there that delivers on your priorities. Finding one that’s good for your bottom line but doesn't sacrifice quality can be more difficult. Fortunately for you, we’ve done some digging to find good brands that give you the best chance for a great deal now.

The overall sales record for a brand can have a significant impact on the price you pay for a particular model at the dealership. If the automaker is going through a boom in sales, it’s unlikely the salesperson will be open to negotiating a low price. On the other hand, if dealerships are consistently falling short of their monthly or quarterly goals, salespeople are more willing to take additional money off the sticker price to spur sales. Demand for sedans, in particular, has taken a big hit over the past year as a result of the soaring popularity of SUVs and crossovers, so if you’re content with a lower ride height and less space, now is a great time to save big.

Using industry reports from Kelley Blue Book, as well as sales data from Automotive News, we’ve identified several brands that have experienced slow demand so far in 2017. If you’re on a tight budget, these brands are a good place to start your search for a new vehicle.
