Car Comparison: Which One Offers the Best Deal?

April 19, 2012

Every so often, the Kicking Tires blog compares competing vehicles to see which ones offer the best deals for consumers.

This round, they pitted the Chrysler 200 vs. Chevrolet Malibu, Lincoln Navigator L vs. GMC Yukon XL, and the Nissan Maxima vs Toyota Avalon. To make it a fair comparison, they chose models that included automatic transmission, air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, Bluetooth, USB port, and power locks, windows and mirrors - basically all the popular options most car buyers are looking for.

Here were the results:

Chrysler 200

The 2012 Chrysler 200 won by a long shot with a savings of over $5,000, mostly due to its lower MSRP and more standard options.

Although the Yukon had a starting price that was $2,265 less expensive than the Navigator, it was the Navigator that came out ahead, saving you around $3,600 in total after financing.

The Maxima wins out with more than $2,500 in savings, but the Avalon does provide some nicer amenities such as standard leather upholstery.
