Low Demand, Great Deals, High Quality: A Perfect Mix for Car Buyers

Although it still feels like summer in most parts of the country, fall weather is almost here. The changing season can be a great time to change your set of wheels. Maybe you’re looking for something more spacious for the carpool now that school is back in session? Or something more fuel-efficient for a weekend road trip? Either way, there’s probably a vehicle in this slideshow that fits your needs without breaking the bank.

Using industry sales data, we’ve identified appealing cars, trucks, and SUVs that haven’t been selling well recently. Slow demand means you’ll have a good chance of negotiating a lower price than usual at the dealership. Sluggish demand can also incentivize manufacturers to offer budget-friendly financing deals and lease deals, which can help your bottom line.

Just because these vehicles are in a sales slump doesn’t mean they fall short in terms of quality. In fact, they all have very good scores in the U.S. News new car rankings, and a few have even earned awards this year. So if you’re looking for strong value in a great new car this Fall, this list is the perfect place to start your search.

Keep in mind that our scores are constantly updated as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the U.S. News scores listed here may differ slightly from the ones listed on our rankings page.
