Deals of the Week

Looking for a car deal? Get ready to jump when sales happen Add to ...

Car makers and their dealers never take their eyes off the sales ball, and when they don’t like the numbers they see, along come so-called “flash sales” that appear seemingly out of nowhere.

Enter Hyundai. From March 19-24, Hyundai Canada is running a “Factory Authorized 5-Day Sale,” boosting the bonus dollars on the 2014 Santa Fe SUV to $2,000 from nothing at the start of March. At the start of March the 2014 Sonata mid-size car had no factory money on it, now buyers will find a $1,500 incentive.

This is how the new-vehicle marketplace works, and it’s precisely why shoppers who want the best deals need to stay on top of the shifts in sales sweeteners day-to-day. Today’s offers can disappear tomorrow, replaced by entirely new ones or none at all.

Even a manufacturer with overall strong numbers will adjust according to market demands. This brings us to Land Rover and Lexus, with sales in Canada up 34.4 per cent and 16.1 respectively. Those big gains might suggest little need to juice the market with healthy discounts.

Yet the savvy Land Rover Range Rover Evoque buyer might be able to string together offers totally $7,000 or more, while the popular Lexus ES 350 is in play with nearly $5,000 in total discounts. Even at Land Rover and Lexus, the sales game is afoot – always.
