Luxury Car Buyers May See Better Deals Soon

October 7, 2010

Luxury Car Buyers It's good to be the king.

Mercedes-Benz has made up serious ground in the American luxury market, beating out both BMW and long-reigning Lexus in sales last month.

The Silver Arrow saw deliveries climb 17% in the US, to 19,862 units in September.

BMW announced its sales had grown by 21%. Lexus, meanwhile isn't fairing so well. Sales fell 6% to 16,948 units, even in light of booming ES sales.

The company delivered 21 percent more of its front-wheel-drive sedan in September, but those gains were demolished by the fact that sales of the company's IS line dropped off by 27 percent.

Aside from being good news for Mercedes-Benz, the changing of the crown may result in better deals for consumers.

Whenever there's a change in sales leaders, the other luxury manufacturers scramble to catch up, often offering better deals to stay competitive.

Keep a lookout for incentive or finance deals from BMW and Lexus.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
