, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 14, 2017

Smaller cars may have tighter profit margins, but that isn't stopping some automakers from offering big discounts worth up to $5,759 to help move the metal as Black Friday approaches.

Whether it's a sporty GTI or a fuel-sipping Cruze Diesel, there are huge year-end discounts available to help save you serious money if you're thinking of buying in November.

Here are 4 examples.

2017 Volkswagen GTI - $3,500 Off

What's Hot: VW is giving dealers $3,500 in unadvertised dealer cash incentives to help discount the GTI now that the 2018 model is nearly here. That's the most we've seen to date. The less-expensive Golf is eligible for $3,000.

What's Not: Unlike rebates, dealers aren't obligated to pass along the $3,500, so be sure to shop around for the best price. VW's other offer is 0% financing for 60 months, but it can't be combined with the dealer incentive.

2017 Nissan Sentra - $4,000 Off

What's Hot: Nissan is making a big effort to reduce 2017 inventory with a whopping $4,000 in discounts on the sport-themed NISMO version. That's the most we've seen to date on this model. For something a bit less intense, the SR Turbo offers $3,500.

What's Not: These are regional offers available in California. Deals in other parts of the country may be up to $1,000 less depending on where you live. Other versions of the car feature $2,500 in offers.

2017 Chevy Cruze - $5,479 Off

What's Hot: Chevy is offering 20% off all versions of the 2017 Cruze. The discount is based on a combination of GM Supplier Pricing and an extra cash discount. On a well-equipped Premier, that can equate to as much as $5,479 in savings.

What's Not: Since the discount is based on the configuration you end up choosing, the actual savings amount may vary considerably with what Chevy is advertising. The offer also can't be combined with other promos like 0% financing for 72 months.

2017 Chevy Trax - $5,759 Off

What's Hot: Like the Cruze, all versions of the 2017 Trax are eligible for 20% off MSRP. On a well-equipped Premier, Chevy says that will equate to a $5,759 discount. You'll never see a deal that good on a Honda HR-V.

What's Not: Since the discount is based on configuration, your actual savings could vary quite a bit. The offer also can't be combined with this month's other promotion, 0% financing for 72 months.
