NADAguides recommends nine models as 'best buys'

(September 22, 2011) NADAguides has recommended nine models in its Quarterly Car Buyers Market Report as current "best buys."

Based on an in-depth analysis of depreciation value, current incentives and rebates, warranty, assistance services and features, the analysts at NADAguides announce the following vehicles as Top Recommended Current Buys:

The 2011 Audi S5, 2012 BMW 6 Series, 2012 Chevrolet Colorado, 2012 Ford Mustang, 2011 GMC Terrain, 2012 Hyundai Tucson, 2011 Land Rover LR4, 2011 Toyota Venza and the 2012 Volkswagen CC.

“These nine vehicles offer value and features that many consumers are starting to expect from automotive manufacturers at lower price points.  What was previously only available in luxury segment vehicles is now starting to become standard across all types of makes and models," said Troy Snyder, director of product development at NADAguides.

"These features, coupled with a great warranty, additional customer services such as free maintenance, and competitive incentives are making many new vehicles much more attractive for car buyers. The Car Buyer’s Market Report is designed to help consumers determine which vehicles are ones they should definitely consider and these nine vehicles offer a little something for everyone.”

More so than ever, consumers are looking for the best deals when it comes to larger purchases such as a new car. The NADAguides Car Buyers Market Report is intended to spotlight new cars currently on the market that have more to offer than a rock bottom price for consumers. 

Vehicle offerings taken into account in the Car Buyers Market Report analysis include low first-year ownership depreciation value of 21 percent or less, basic warranty (36,000 mile warranty or higher), above average features that make driving more pleasurable, road-side assistance programs (required to be considered), financing incentives, a competitive MSRP within the segment and day supply product availability.
