Big Year-End Savings Available on These Cars and SUVs

The end of the year is one of best times to buy a car, so if you’ve been holding out for a new vehicle, now could be a great time to score a price below sticker on your favorite model. Salespeople are typically scrambling at this time of year to boost their numbers before the calendar turns, and that gives buyers plenty of leverage in the negotiating process.

Dealers are also trying to get rid of 2016 inventory to make room for 2017 models, so the best deals can often be found on the older outgoing models. Of course, buying conditions are more favorable for some vehicles than for others.

To help you out, we’ve analyzed industry sales data from Kelley Blue Book and Automotive News and come up with a list of cars and SUVs that have favorable buying conditions right now, which could mean big savings for you at the dealership. So, if you'd like to pick up a new vehicle for the New Year, this slide show is a great place to start your search.
