Fall 2021 Auto Buying Guide

Fall 2021 Auto Buying Guide

Fall is a great time to take advantage of significant savings if you’re in the market for a new car. The average savings is about 8% off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price when inventories are high and demand is low, but that is not necessarily the case this year. This is especially true of trucks and sport utility vehicles that travel well in winter weather. Check out the models listed below for a look at what’s popular this year.

Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 is a good value for a large family. With a third row, it can seat up to seven people and the second row Captain’s chairs provide a smooth and comfortable ride.  The leather interior and new 10.25-inch center screen combine functional good looks and great performance. There are built-in features that improve cornering capability, predict traction issues, and offer a state-of-the-art cruise control.

Hyundai Accent

If you want a quiet ride in simple comfort at an affordable price, there’s no better car than the Hyundai Accent. The 2021 model was so good, there weren’t many improvements. After all, how do improve near perfection? With excellent fuel economy, great features, and a solid performance in the class of small cars, it’s a great value.

Toyota Camry Hybrid

With a battery that lasts ten years or 150,000 miles, the 2021 Toyota Camry Hybrid remains a good choice for a mid-sized sedan for more than one reason. The All-Wheel-Drive performance and advanced technology features like the 9-inch floating multimedia display offer compatibility connections with Apple and Android devices, and the smart key system and push button start make access a breeze. The interior has more choices for seat patterns and other finishing touches that create a unique driver-focused design.

Kia Seltos

Considered a sport utility vehicle, the 2021 Kia Seltos is a sporty car but with a roomier interior, advanced technology features, and two engine choices—a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder model and a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged version with All-Wheel-Drive offered in both. The Seltos EX version is the least expensive of the models, but still comes with plenty of value-added features.

Ford F-150

The Ford F-150 was a beast of a truck before, but the 2021 redesigned model is tougher than ever with improvements in the powertrain, interior and exterior design, and many style changes. Taking a stand to keep the popular features of the previous generations of F-150s, Ford only made minor modifications to the exterior look. Inside, however, are more noticeable. There’s a standard 8-inch display with an optional 15.5-inch screen available. Ford is also developing an electric version that will be released shortly after the 2021 models.

Jeep Compass

With a seating capacity of five, the 2021 Jeep Compass is a comfortable ride and has plenty of cargo space for a small SUV and the ability to tow up to 2,000 pounds. This sporty model has rack and pinion steering, front and rear suspensions, 180 horsepower, and 9 transmission speeds making it a great off-road vehicle. This year’s version offers 19-inch wheels, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and adaptive cruise control. It may not be as fancy as other SUV brands, but it’s worth the value for the cost.
