WASHINGTON, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in rankings and consumer advice, today unveiled June's list of the Best Cars to Buy Now. With new car sales on the decline, car shoppers can take advantage of significant incentive packages. However, cars with the biggest discounts may still not be worth the money. U.S. News Best Cars has identified eight cars, SUVs and trucks that not only offer hefty savings, but are also a pleasure to own.
Lease for $259 per month for 24 months with $3,159 down;
Buy with 3.9 percent financing for 60 months
"Big discounts don't necessarily mean a smart buy," says Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of the U.S. News Best Cars rankings. "The Best Cars to Buy Now list offers great incentives on vehicles that also get excellent reviews."
To be included on June's list of the Best Cars to Buy Now, a car has to meet three criteria: declining sales, strong manufacturer incentives and excellent scores in the U.S. News Best Cars rankings. Each of the cars on the list has year-over-year sales declines of more than 11 percent, which is well over the roughly 4 percent sales decline the industry as a whole has seen so far in 2017. The Best Cars to Buy Now list also takes advantage of rising incentive spending, with low interest rates and cash back offers. Finally, all cars on the list have an overall score of at least 8.5 (out of 10) in the rankings.
Deals listed are from manufacturers' sites using representative ZIP codes. Deals may vary depending on location, the buyer's credit score and other factors. Deals are valid through June 30, 2017, according to manufacturers' sites.
Since 2007, U.S. News Best Cars, the automotive channel of U.S. News & World Report, has published rankings of the majority of new vehicles sold in America. Each year, U.S. News publishes the Best Cars awards, including Best Vehicle Brands, Best Cars for the Money and Best Cars for Families. U.S. News Best Cars had over 45 million unique visitors over the past year, with over 65 percent of visitors actively shopping for a car.
