The recession is over, they told us. It is time to start spending again.
But somehow we have not. Economic trends similar to those in the description of the bad news on us to accelerate the rear half are still set for us – and where it is more visible than in the automotive market. Americans pulled back from buying some of the most extravagant cars on the market – so much so that the prices listed.
The average purchase price for more than 300 models of cars, trucks and SUVs in the country – and they told us when they are told. This month, an unusual pattern is not seen – which saw five cars to the largest price decline in August to September, all luxury cars.
30-day price drop: $1,921
Neither the flagship of the world’s largest automaker slip because of the lack quality. And ‘as expensive as you want it, and build the highest quality. It encompasses a wide range of engines, from the first ahybrid functioing lithium-ion battery on the road to asphalt swinging in V12 S63. And although we can not say that it fits any budget, to be alone is essential, because the ultra-luxury company with a price of about $ 80,000 to tagranging close to $ 200,000. But the S-Class has seen the largest drop in average car last month – almost $ 2k buyer paid less than the previous month.
30-day price drop: $1,406
Mercedes-Benz can not with the way this list is proving to be satisfied so far. The most expensive sedan came first, and their less expensive (in the United States, at least, if the Be A-Class car yet, but his voice) positions. The Bever Class C rather than performance value of the BMW 3 series or Audi A4, but can grow in a test circuit with almost no sports sedan base model. Some of us think that blurs the machine, thanks to its aggressive character lines and large, sharp screen. And it’s all in a Mercedes with some of Busines more comfortable seats. But the final price has fallen by an average of $ 1,400 Class C’s best-selling last month – and the price change of $ 1,400 Class C is a lot more things to bring prices down to $ 2,000 for the S-class brother.
Infiniti QX 56
30-day price drop: $1,163
The largest vehicle, Infiniti has a little bit “of everything. A completely redesigned for 2011, offers a V8 engine with drive, one of the best rooms in a luxury SUV (get theater package, have us believe), and cut the real road – a rarity in a general class so that all the hats, not Neiman Marcus Holstein’s dramatic new leaf -. well, you’d love or hate it can, but must admit that has style. Infiniti Maybe just chose a bad time for a great debut ute, sport class? Whatever the reason, the QX56 price continues to fall, and was available for a few months.
Land Rover Range Rover
30-day price drop: $576
Infiniti built as a luxury SUV with true off-road performance, what can we say about the Range Rover? Rover is one of the most competent off-road vehicles available today, and only one of the serious off-road kit available with Alcantara and heated rear seats.Range Rover is not the most mechanically reputation, but had a long tradition of Japanese rival claims, and almost everyone appreciates the styling of a modern classic. But not enough to keep it from this list – prices fall more than $ 500 in just the last 30 days.
Lexus HS 250h
30-day price drop: $459
The Lexus 250h SA does not mean much. And “as if” there is a bad ground. Dedicated to pure hybrid system, with quality materials and luxury Lexus, and he has promised. But one way to implement fairly.You only get 35 cities and 34 mpg on the highway – not a lot for a car that caused the Prius. And do not get a better guide to change the fuel consumption of less impressive. It is very nice, but perhaps not quite the premium over the Prius to come. Maybe that’s why he did not sell well, and the slots in the top five cars that have suffered price declines worst last month.
