Deals of the Week

Auto shows exist to prime buyers so big discounts exist this time of year Add to ...

It’s auto show season, which of course means auto show deals.

To coincide with the opening of the Toronto auto show today, Nissan Canada has launched an appropriately named Toronto Auto Show Bonus on the Altima midsize sedan worth $750 on lease and finance deals. That is on top of other factory and dealer offers and it’s available to Ontario customers only – though expect similar incentives to become available to non-Ontarians as other auto shows roll west to Vancouver.

Unhaggle.com CEO Andrew Tai points out Nissan has similar sweeteners on a variety of other Nissan and Infiniti models, including a total of $1,500 on cash, finance and lease transactions for the Infiniti QX50 crossover.

Many manufacturers do the auto show deals and they often remain in effect for months after shows have closed. To get the very best out of your deal, it’s important to keep track of these extra bonus dollars.

Deals of the Week also noticed combined incentives of nearly $4,500 on the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, a similar amount on the Cadillac SRV SUV and nearly $4,000 on the Lincoln MKX SUV (sport-utility vehicle).

Auto shows, of course, exist primarily to get the buying public primed for the spring buying seasons during these dreary months of winter. Don’t overlook the bonus money, however.

Deals of the Week consulted with www.unhaggle.com, Car Help Canada, www.carcostcanada.com, and other sources on these offers. As usual, pricing information here is subject to change and dealer discounts vary, so consult your dealer for all the final details, including expiry dates for all offers.
