With some shoppers looking to make quite an impression via a holiday gift purchase, Autotrader found a half dozen luxury brands are ramping up their certified pre-owned offerings in hopes of capturing some of that consumer zeal.
“Dealerships are highly motivated in December to close sales across their entire inventory, both new and used,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “The high discount month means smart shoppers can find great options and value in certified pre-owned vehicles.
“CPO programs have many added-value perks and you can’t overlook the importance of the comprehensive inspection every CPO vehicle undergoes,” Moody added.
The editors at Autotrader have rounded up some of the best CPO deals to help shoppers find that perfect certified pre-owned vehicle that could make this December truly one to remember.
In December, BMW is offering a special deal for its CPO program. Through the end of the month, qualified shoppers can get 1.99 percent APR for up to 24 months on all certified pre-owned 2015 and 2016 BMW models.
This month, Autotrader stressed that Buick’s certified pre-owned program is especially alluring for the Enclave and Encore, as qualified buyers can get CPO versions of both models with 1.99 percent APR through the end of December.
In December, Autotrader pointed out Chevrolet’s CPO program is even more attractive for drivers interested in the compact Cruze sedan, the Equinox crossover, the midsize Malibu sedan, the full-size Silverado pickup, and the midsize Traverse crossover, as the automaker is offering CPO versions of those models with 1.99 percent APR to qualified shoppers.
Autotrader highlighted Land Rover is offering a host of excellent financing deals this month for qualified shoppers, including 0.9 percent APR for up to 36 months on Discovery Sport, 3.9 percent for up to 36 months on Discovery and LR4, and 1.9 percent for up to 36 months on certain model years of the Range Rover Evoque.
This month, Autotrader found that Lexus is offering an even better deal than usual for a certified pre-owned version of the RX crossover, as Lexus is offering CPO RX models with 3.9 percent APR for up to 60 months to qualified buyers — a deal that extends to the RX, the extended-length RX L and the hybrid-powered RX Hybrid.
During December, Lincoln’s CPO program offers qualified shoppers interested in financing a certified pre-owned Lincoln can get 3.49 percent APR for up to 66 months, “which is a good deal and an especially long term on a used vehicle,” according to Autotrader.
Through the end of December, drivers can get 1.99 percent APR for up to 48 months on most CPO models, including the CLA, the C-Class, the E-Class, the GLK, the GLC and more.
