SANTA MONICA, California — Car dealers are clearing out 2015 vehicles for redesigned 2016 models and that means car shoppers can find huge discounts on at least 31 vehicles, including the 2015 Honda Civic and 2015 Chevrolet Volt, according to a new advisory from Edmunds.com.
Offers on the outgoing Civic range between $1,000 and $2,000 below TMV ®.
Prices on the Prius have fallen as much as $3,000 below TMV. In some parts of the U.S., the 3 Series is already selling for more than $1,500 below TMV, while prices are slashed $1,000 over TMV on the Passat.
"Shoppers looking for the best possible deal on a new car right now would be smart to consider the savings these vehicles offer before they weigh any other options," said Edmunds.com Senior Consumer Advice Editor Philip Reed.
A full list of the 2015 model-year sell-down recommendations is available here.
Some of the discounts are regional, so shoppers should check Edmunds' Price Promise offers and incentives information before heading to showrooms.
It's best to start shopping 2015 model-year vehicles as soon as possible to maximize the selection of colors and options.
Edmunds says: Buyers stand to save thousands of dollars on 2015 vehicles that are slated for a redesign or refresh for 2016, so make your plans now to head to your local dealer.
