Top auto reporting firm NADAguides has released its Quarterly Car Buyer’s Market Report which showcases nine available vehicles from different auto makers that staffers consider “best buys” for this year. NADAguides is basing its picks on items like incentives and rebates from the manufacturer, warranties, customer support and depreciation value for cars and other vehicles. Offering more than just a bargain price report, this new release gives customers a bird’s eye view of what’s going on right now in the auto industry.
NADA’s first pick is the 2011 Audi S5, the stylish convertible/coupe that comes with low financing rates and modern safety and audio features. The 2012 BMW 6 series also made NADA’s list with power and style, as well as a 50,000 mile warranty and other extras. The 2012 Ford Mustang, a perennial favorite with the sports car crowd, is also included.
NADAguides also included some truck models in its list, for example, the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado. Citing competitive retail pricing, cashback offers, and a 36,000 mile warranty, NADA added this heavy-duty ride to the list of good choices for the 2011/2012 year. The 2011 GMC Terrain, a large SUV with good warranty and roadside assistance packages, provides another top choice, according to NADAguides staffers who note the starting MSRP of $24,500 and interest rates starting at 2.9%. Another chosen SUV is the 2012 Hyundai Tucson, a vehicle that lots of drivers don’t hear much about. NADAguides marks this model for good resale values, lower depreciation and lots of features for the cost.
Other vehicles on the list include the 2011 Land Rover LR4, the 2011 Toyota Venza, and the 2012 Volkswagen CC, a lesser-known small car from the German auto maker. A premium sound and entertainment system, plus high horsepower and low financing rates, are all part of what made NADAguides notice the Land Rover model. As for the Toyota, which starts at around $27,000, package customization, Toyota’s modern safety system, and a 36,000 mile warranty along with Toyota’s free maintenance program are all enticing offers for this vehicle. NADAguides writers were attracted to the Volkswagen CC by 0% financing, along with warranty and maintenance offers and a lot of new technology in the cabin.
Look for good deals on any of these vehicles on dealer’s lots near you to take advantage of some of NADA’s most current research.
