This is because car prices are dropping since dealers are finding themselves with too many unsold models sitting on their lots. Here are the best deals to be found right now.

Due to market demand shifts and overproduction of loaded trim levels, many dealers are left with excess inventory. If you’ve always wanted an SUV or luxury car but found it unaffordable, consider acting quickly now to score your dream vehicle at an affordable price. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about SUVs and luxury crossovers, why their prices have dropped and how you can land yourself a good deal.

Model Differences

Luxury SUVs are high end vehicles with premium features. Their style and space give you a luxury feeling and a more comfortable driving experience. Luxury SUVs tend to be more spacious, which means they are more accommodating of cargo and have more leg room. Luxury SUVs often feature interiors made from high end materials like genuine leather and wood trims. They also have premium sound features and enhanced safety features such as adaptive cruise control which you won’t find on the average SUV.

Many luxury SUVs also feature powerful engines that outperform what you would find on a basic SUV. This is the result of features such as eight cylinder engines, finely tuned suspension and enhanced transmission. A combination of comfort, versatility, refinement and performance is what a luxury SUV will provide you.

What makes luxurious models so affordable right now?

Luxury SUVs and cars have become more affordable because developments in the auto market have placed considerable downward pressure on SUV prices, thus leading to a price drop.

One factor contributing to this price drop is the growth in number of off-lease SUVs that are now available. These tend to be low-mileage, well cared for vehicles that look and feel just like a brand new SUV. Off-lease SUVs are usually between 6 months to 3 years old.

The second factor is changing consumer preferences. American drivers have been ditching sedans and switching to crossovers and SUVs for several years now. Due to this shift, many manufacturers have increased their production of crossovers and SUVs, offering new incentives to attract customers. These incentives usually decrease your monthly payments which can make a new SUV more affordable than you would expect.

Luxury SUVs are also very affordable right now. You can buy a Land Rover for only $399 per month or a brand new BMW X1 for only $339 per month.

Every SUV manufacturer seems to be competing for new buyers with low financing rates, cash back and free upgrades. Every month that goes by seems to offer better and better discounts.

Finding the best deals     

Do not drool over the first low price you see. There could be even lower prices if you come prepared to haggle at your local dealership. The more information you have before you walk into a dealership the better. We recommend having a few different models of SUV in mind that way you can choose whichever one has the best deals available.
