This Thursday is the fourth one of the month, and you know what that means: Black Friday week has arrived. (What, you thought we were going to say something about Thanksgiving?)
Not only is it a great time to grab everything from televisions to outdoor gear for a bargain, it’s also a great time to score a deal on a car. With model years closing out, it’s an excellent time for new car lease discounts. And according to a new iSeeCars study, it’s also the best time of year to buy a used car.
Here, according to that study, are the five used cars that will see the best discounts on average over the Black Friday sales period.
Toyota Sequoia: 10.4% Off
There are a lot of Sequoias on the used market; not surprising, as the three-row SUV has classic Toyota longevity. It has not been updated with a new generation since 2007. It’s not a cool Toyota like a Land Cruiser or a Tacoma that owners would hang onto for decades out of love. But it may be a sensible buy.
Porsche Macan: 10.3% Off
Luxury SUVs are popular cars to lease. The Macan is Porsche’s best-selling car. So, perhaps unsurprisingly, there are a lot of Macans coming off leases in the marketplace — and plenty of popular Mercedes, Lexus, and BMW competitors to compete with in the used car market. The Macan thus becomes an affordable entry point if you want to buy a recent Porsche.
Volkswagen Beetle: 9.2% Off
It makes sense that the Beetle would be a good value. It’s a two-door niche vehicle. Nostalgia fatigue has set in; anyone who has wanted a new Beetle has had more than two decades to buy one. But it could be a deal for a single person who likes the styling and wants a fun-to-drive VW.
Toyota Sienna: 9.1% Off
The Sequoia is the minivan of the Toyota SUV lineup. The Sienna is Toyota’s actual minivan. It’s slightly newer, with the current generation debuting for the 2011 model year — but it’s in a similar situation to the Sequoia, with there being a lot of them already floating around.
Fiat 500: 8.6% Off
As the Volkswagen Beetle, fatigue has set in with the Fiat 500. Trouble is, the 500 is an even smaller niche than the Beetle, and even less practical. (New ones are also cheap.)
