Double Dealing: Top December Deals on 10 Resale Value Champs
The Kelley Blue Book math wizards have been as busy as Santa's elves this holiday season. First they identified this year's Best Resale Value Award winners, which we announced the week before Thanksgiving on the eve of the LA Auto Show, and now they've made a list of those winners offering the best December deals. Our annual Best Resale Value Awards honor the vehicles projected to best retain their value after five years, and this holiday shopping list includes the top pricing and incentives currently available for 10 of this year's honorees.
Among the featured winners, the Nissan Maxima is currently available with the most significant discount. By utilizing Kelley Blue Book's Fair Purchase Price (FPP) and taking advantage of a $3,500 cash rebate, savvy consumers should be able to buy a new Maxima for approximately $4,500 below sticker. Shoppers looking to minimize their monthly payments can look to the compact car winner, the 2012 Honda Civic, for a very reasonable 36-month lease at $179 a month with only $1,999 due at lease signing. With sedans, pickups, crossovers, SUVs and minivans, this year's list offers a little something for everyone.
