Shop 2019 Cars for Bargains
As with other consumer goods, new car sales are down precipitously — in large part because COVID-19 forced factories and dealerships to close. Production is resuming in some places and dealers are starting to reopen, but with a glut of leftover 2019 inventory. An iSeeCars study reveals that while the average 2019 model vehicle has about 10.8% of its inventory remaining from last year, some models have more than six times that. Translation: This could be a bargain bonanza for consumers, with dealers pushing never-driven cars from the previous and current model years hard to make room for next year's wheels.
Keep an open mind. "Automakers are offering generous incentives and financing deals," says Julie Blackley, communications manager for iSeeCars. "Consumers may not realize that these deals are for 2019 vehicles as well, which in many cases don't have many differences between the new 2020 versions." Compare carefully as you shop, and look for these top 20 vehicles with the most inventory remaining for sale.
