Best Holiday Car Deals for 2016

December 8, 2016

With the holiday and end-of-year coming up, car dealerships are chomping at the bit to get car shoppers to sign the dotted line and help them move the remaining 2016 inventory to make more room for the 2017 models. So if you're in the market for a new car, this month is usually the best time of year to buy.

CarsDirect has the low-down on some of deals going on right now until the beginning of the New Year on cars such as the 2016 Kia Optima, 2017 Toyota Camry, and all 2017 BMWs.

And for the best end-of-year savings, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best deals being offered in your area.

Vehicle Special Deal
2016 Kia Optima Lease for $159/month for 39 months ($1,999 due at signing)
2017 Toyota Camry 0% financing for 72 months plus cash
2016 Toyota Prius $500 holiday bonus cash
2017 Acura RDX $750 bonus cash
2017 Acura ILX $750 bonus cash
GM Vehicles $2,000 competitive bonus cash
2016 Chevrolet Trax Lease for $184/month for 39 months, $194 due at signing
2017 BMW Models $1,000 Holiday bonus cash
2016 Hyundai Elantra Up to $3,250 in bonus discounts

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show 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.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
