Driving Made Easy

Ever wondered which car manufacturers offer the best discounts? Well… if you’re after a Renault Grand Scenic or a Ford Focus then you might be in luck.

According to car sale website AutoeBid.com these two models attract some of the biggest discounts available with dealerships willing to shave literally £1,000s off the price in return for a sale.

AutoeBid.com secures the discount by having dealerships bid against each other in a ‘reverse auction’ to provide buyers with the best possible deal.

 

SEAT Leon

 

The discounts mean that, often, buying a new car can be better value than buying used – as shown below for the Seat Leon, BMW 3 Series and Skoda Octavia.

However, if you’re planning to strike a deal on a new Jaguar F-Pace or Fiat 124 Spyder then you could be out of luck.

Chris Greener, MD of AutoeBid.com said: “Only small discounts are available for new models. When the new Volvo XC90 and Kia Sportage models emerged there was almost no discount available. Now they have been around for a few months, a discount of over 8% is possible.”

“Also cars which experience a large demand like the new BMW M2, are a challenge to supply let alone achieve a discount for.”

“The reasons some makers are happier to discount depends on factors such as production targets, competing models and ultimate position in the vehicle’s lifecycle.”

AutoeBid.com are so familiar with the discounts on offer, they can even tell buyers the minimum saving to expect when purchasing a car through the site.
