Customer Incentives Increasing on Luxury Cars

June 21, 2012

There's an incentives war brewing among luxury vehicles right now.

Lexus has led the rise by boosting discounts on its cars by 54% this year and SUVs by 60%, according to Autodata Corporation. Mercedes and BMW have raised their customer incentives by 11% and 6.9% respectively.

All three brands are competing for the #1 best-selling luxury brand title this year. Lexus had held the title for 11 years in a row, but last year BMW took the crown. Lexus is determined to get it back.

Although Audi is not a contender in the race, they have also gotten into the game by raising incentives 18% this year. If you're considering buying or leasing a luxury car, the next several months offers you a great opportunity to get a great deal.
