Revealed: the car makers whose discounts have got bigger since lockdown
As car dealerships prepare to reopen on 1 June, we reveal the 12 manufacturers whose discounts have grown the most since the start of lockdown...
Dealerships will reopen for new car sales on Monday, 1 June, and there are some terrific special offers to tempt buyers.
With our team of mystery shoppers constantly scouring the market, we’ve been able to track all of the latest discounts over the past few weeks and months, reporting fluctuations with our Target Price.
Target Price is the most our team of mystery shoppers think you should pay for a new, factory-ordered car based on their everyday haggling. Dealers using our New Car Buying system are encouraged to match or beat Target Price – and if they don't we'll highlight it to them and you, and if necessary do all we can to find you one that will.
Below, we’ve listed the 12 manufacturers who’ve lowered their prices the most in recent weeks – including a staggering £19,366 saving on a Mercedes.
