The Best Incentives Among Mid-size Cars

June 14, 2012

Mid-size cars are the most popular segment right now among car shoppers. The list includes the #1 selling car in America - the Toyota Camry.

This is also the most competitive segment, which means there's always some good incentives available. This year, the competition is really heating up due to several redesigns being introduced.

The leftover models have cash-back rebates as high as $3,000 - lease deals as low as $189/month - and extra cash bonuses as high as $1,810.

I created the following chart to make it easy for you to compare all the current incentives side-by-side. Please note that incentives will vary depending on where you live, so these may not be available in your local area.

Be sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder to see the exact rebates in your area and take full advantage of these offers.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best 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.
