New Car Financing: Automakers Offer Discounts for the Holidays

With Christmas coming up quickly, car shoppers are looking to get into a car soon that can handle winter weather. Fortunately, automakers are making it easier to afford both their new and certified pre-owned vehicles with all sorts of holiday discounts and deals.

According to Autoweek, everyone from Kia to Audi and Volkswagen will have fantastic deals all the way up through the beginning of January. Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Volkswagen all have offers going through January 2, and Audi and Kia’s offers are good through January 7.

Right now, January 7 seems far away. It might sound like car shoppers have plenty of time to get in on these deals, but the truth is that the holiday season goes by very quickly. There are family gatherings, office parties, and super-special-mega sales at the mall, not to mention any traveling to see extended family. This is potentially the best time of year to get a car because new models are coming in, and dealership want to move their inventory of last year’s models out the door. Unfortunately, many car shoppers will miss out on this golden opportunity because they procrastinate and don’t make it a priority to get into a dealership.

New Car Financing: Recap of the LA Auto Show Premieres

Last week, the Los Angeles Auto Show premiered many new concept cars as part of the show. Now, concept cars are always fun to browse, but they won’t be available at your local dealership. This is why we were more interested to see the production vehicle that debuted at the show. They might not have a beak, a bike from TRON, or whatever this is, but these are cars that our customers could be test driving very soon. Here is a quick rundown of some of the show’s biggest production vehicle premieres.

2013 Fiat 500L – The new Fiat keeps the Fiat 500’s charm and gives the driver over 2 more feet of interior space. Who knew a car could so cool and yet cute as a bug?

2013 Porsche Cayman – Porsche claims that the new Cayman can go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. We won’t be able to get behind the wheel until spring of next year, but this lighter and more powerful Cayman definitely has our attention.

2013 Toyota RAV4 – Toyota was really amping up the RAV4’s premiere with promises of “a new generation” of car that embodies “sophistication and strength.” Not much really changed with the RAV4 at least from first glance, and it seems that the auto critics mostly agree. Forbes was more impressed and said that the changes made to the RAV4 were a huge improvement, though even they said it isn’t “oozing excitement.” The 2013 RAV4 will be available January 2013.

2014 Kia Forte – Showing up in cool blue, the 2014 Kia Forte impressed Autoweek which said the Forte proves that cars in its class and price range don’t have to be “bland.” The buzz is that the Forte is a real competitor amongst the new compact sedans.

SEMA Show: Chevy Pushing Compact Concepts, Z-Spec Options

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show is coming up next week starting October 30 and running through November 2. Parts manufacturers from across the country will be descending upon Las Vegas to browse, network, and see the future of the auto industry. Prior to the show, however, some exhibitors like Chevrolet are giving early previews of what attendees can look forward to.

According to Autoweek, Chevy will be showing off 39 cars at the SEMA Show next week, and most of their focus will be on a number of compact concept vehicles. The Sonic Z-Spec 1, Sonic Z-Spec 2.5, Spark Sinister, Cruze Upscale, and Sonic B-Spec will all be on display, and Chevy will be officially announcing that Z-Spec options will be in production in 2013. Car shoppers can either purchase and install them, or if they are purchasing a new car, they can add the cost of the options onto the price of the car and have the dealership install them.

This news from Chevy shows again that car manufacturers are focusing on compact cars. It is especially telling that Chevy is pushing compact cars at SEMA Show, one of the biggest automotive shows of the year. Also, Chevy’s announcement that Z-Spec options will be available in 2013 proves that they are listening to car shoppers. People have latched onto the idea of their car being customizable and unique to their needs, something that has worked well for the Dodge Dart, and pushing the Z-Spec options is a smart move on Chevy’s part.
