Sales of new vehicles in 2019 so far have declined in Canada by only two per cent year-over-year, despite the industry being dogged by a number of economic and political factors, such as tariffs on steel and aluminum, a market correction, rising interest rates both at home and across our southern border. Nevertheless, automakers do not seem to be taking strong sales volumes for granted as they continue to offer attractive incentives across all segments in an effort to hold onto their market share.

There is something for virtually every type of car buyer. We’ve featured some of our favourite offers this week on vehicles carrying sizable incentives. If you don’t find an offer that suits you, be sure to check out the Globe Drive Build and Price Tool to see the latest incentives and discounts on any new car, truck or SUV.
