The end of the year is fast approaching and that new car you’ve been thinking about may be easier to acquire than you thought. If want to get the best bang for your buck, the October to December period is a great time to get the best value for your money on a new vehicle purchase.
End-of-year vehicle sales
As we near the end of the year, dealerships have increased motivation to sell cars built in that year to prepare for the new models that car manufacturers are bringing out. At this time, there is also increased motivation for them to hit sales targets before the end of the year.
The end of the year also sees a lot of discounts, cash-back offers and deferred payments, making your new vehicle purchase easier to attain. We also tend to see plate-clearance deals where dealerships discount current-year vehicles to allow more room for new stock and allow you to save more on your new car going into the new year.
