New Car Sales Increasing, But So Are Prices

October 9th, 2012

Average New Car Transaction Prices Up in 2012

New car sales in 2012 continue to impress, with most automakers showing strong year-to-date increases over 2011 numbers. But as sales improve, simple supply and demand states prices have gone up to match. The average new car transaction price was $30,282 in September, up 0.9% over the same month in 2011.

While base MSRP prices have increased only slightly, consumers are now opting for higher trim levels with more options in order to take advantage of the latest in advanced infotainment and active safety features. Greater availability of credit and record-low car loan interest rates mean more consumers can afford new cars, at higher base prices.

Simultaneously, average spending on incentives; which can take the form of cash back, 0% or low-interest financing and special programs like free gas; is falling. Hyundai USA spent just $1,294 on incentives last month for 5.8% of average transaction price, while Chrysler was at the high end at $3,256, or 11%.

Tips To Combat Rising Prices

• Study trim levels and options packages carefully. You may really want a backup camera, but if you’ll need several thousand dollars worth of upgrades you don’t want in order to get it, an inexpensive aftermarket system can be a better choice.

Watch for consumer incentives. Receiving $3,000 cash back on a $30,000 car may mean choosing that model over a comparable car from another automaker offering less-generous incentives.

• Clean up your credit before buying. Outstanding interest rates are currently available, including 0% APR from many automakers, but you’ll need excellent credit to take full advantage. Sometimes, taking care of those small red marks on your credit report will pay for itself when it’s time to finance.
