The best offers on soon-to-be redesigned models

Big savings can be found on even some of the most popular models in the market

With each model year, advancements in technology and design are introduced in the never-ending race for automotive supremacy. However, the industry seems to operate on its own calendar. More than 200 new vehicle models are for sale as 2018 vintages, even though 2017 is far from over.

A single model year can make thousands of dollars of difference for car buyers as auto makers look to move out the old and make room for the new. This is especially true for models that are due for a major facelift or redesign. For savvy buyers willing to forgo the most cutting-edge design, significant savings can be found on even some of the most popular models in the market.

We've featured some of our favourite offers this week on outgoing models with strong incentives. If you don't find an offer that suits you, be sure to check out the new Globe Drive Build and Price Tool to see the latest incentives and discounts on any new car, truck or SUV.
