Great deals are flooding the US vehicles market. Shoppers of new cars have a lot of choice in every class and segment. The most popular models include the Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Cruze, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Sonata which have great deals on them. The reason for the surge in demand is the result of redesigns that have taken place in the last few years. For vehicles with the most demand cash rebate would be the least.
However according to Alec Gutierrez, a senior market analyst with Kelley Blue Book, all car shoppers are not the same and many of them are on the lookout for great deals. According to him cars are redesigned every five years. A good deal can be made on the car that is going to be redesigned within a year's time.
Great deals are there on the cars which are expected to be redesigned in the current year or the coming year. Currently the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima and the Chevrolet Malibu have more than $4000 discount in rebates. Other cars expected to be redesigned are the Toyota Corolla and the Nissan Sentra with a current rebate of $2000 on the shelf price.
Great deals are also on offer to make sales of certain models more enticing like the Suzuki Grand Vitara and the Mitsubishi Outlander as they have lagged behind in volume of monthly sales.
