How to Find the Best Deals on Luxury SUVs

There are three crucial points to keep in mind when trying to get the best deal from a dealership. First, you need to identify a good, solid vehicle from a solid company. Next, the dealership must offer cash incentives, and possibly most important is to find a dealership that is willing to make concessions because they have too much inventory sitting on their lots. Space on dealer lots is at a premium and the longer a car sits, the less it is worth and the more the dealership has to wait to make money. The cars that are not selling are those the dealerships are most willing to make the greatest concessions on. You can drive away with a great deal on luxury SUVs if you know where to look. Now that 2022 is here there is an even greater premium of lot space at local dealerships. The newest 2022 model year SUVs are here and need the space. 2021 models and older take up the space that the newest vehicles need. Because of this, many local dealers have year end clearance events, an effort to free up space and clear out older inventory. You can find great lease deals on model year 2021 and older vehicles. You may even find options for leases as low as $149/Month!

These SUVs all have lease deals somewhere in the country lower than $200/Month! The 2022 Honda HR-V currently $199/Month for 36 months, the 2021 Hyundai Venue at$159/Month for 36 months, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson for $179/Month for 36 months, the 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric at $199/Month for 36 months, and finally the 2022 Kia Seltos coming in at $199/Month for 36 months.

Look for SUVs that have been on the lot for 80 days or longer, have fallen below the 2017 sales pace, or if there’s a glut on the market of a particular type of SUV. Dealers use a complicated formula that tells them how many days they can realistically allow a car to sit on the lot. This magic formula is called the Days Supply. You can look up the vehicle you are interested in and see what the magic number is for a make/model of vehicle, then when you go to the dealership you will know if the car is getting close to its ‘sell by’ date. That gives you the most leverage to negotiate price.
