IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The fall season brings new beginnings and opportunities, even for car shoppers. Now is a great time for potential buyers to decide if they want to jump on a 2020 vehicle purchase that they have had their eye on for a while or wait for a highly anticipated brand-new model. To help shoppers make that decision, Kelley Blue Book studied the marketplace and unearthed which 2020 models will be heading into retirement, and which all-new vehicles are worth waiting for in 2021.
"For car buyers looking for a bargain, shopping for vehicles that will no longer be available after this year is the way to go," said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book. "The list runs the gamut from an efficient hatchback in the Honda Fit up through a luxury sedan like the Lexus GS. You can also end up owning a piece of automotive history in the last of the Chevrolet Impalas or Dodge Grand Caravans. "

On the contrary, if you are someone who loves to have the latest shiny new toy, there are plenty of new and redesigned models going on sale in the 2021 model year.
"This has been an interesting and innovative year for the market overall. The vehicles on this list were showcased completely virtually rather than at shows, which is new for the industry," said Allyson Harwood, associate editor for Kelley Blue Book. "Our experts at Kelley Blue Book picked out a few favorite models for 2021, based on their value, capability, and innovation."
