Telluride lease has a catch. The price to lease Kia's hottest-selling SUV has seemingly gone down. The downside is that Telluride shoppers may be getting less for their money since Kia is now offering 10,000 mile-per-year leases across its lineup. As a result, this month's "deal" may not be as good as it appears. Read More »

$20,000 Mirai discount. Even though Toyota's most advanced car has only been on the market for a few months, 2021 Mirai discounts have doubled to a whopping $20,000 off MSRP. Believe it or not, you can even score 0% financing for 72 months, making the brand's new hydrogen fuel cell car a killer value. Learn More »

$10k Panamera discount. While big discounts from Porsche are rare, an unusual incentive on the 2020 Panamera can potentially save buyers a huge chunk of money. That's because the German automaker is "matching" dealer discounts, with a maximum potential benefit of as much as $10,000 off MSRP. Learn More »

Secret Land Rover Defender deals. If you go purely off of what Land Rover has to say about deals for the all-new Defender, you could be missing out on significant savings. That's because we've uncovered a rebate and financing deal you probably won't find on the manufacturer's website. Full Coverage »

Defender lease deals. While leasing can be a great way to save on a luxury SUV, you may want to think twice when it comes to the Defender. Our analysis of dealer incentive bulletins finds that you may be able to upgrade to a much more expensive model and save some money in the process. Full Analysis »

LS Hybrid price increase. The most efficient version of the 2021 Lexus LS is getting an over-$10,000 price increase. However, the brand's flagship hybrid luxury car will also get a long list of new standard features in the process. Learn More »

Honda gift card promo. Honda has added a gift card promo to a growing list of unusual promotions we've seen over the past several months. That said, a closer look finds that the option to score a $1,000 prepaid Visa card could be outweighed by another deal that may end up saving you more money. Learn Why »

GV80 price cut. If you've been put-off by high lease prices for the all-new Genesis GV80, a recent price cut could come as a welcome surprise. However, our analysis finds that the GV80 is still more expensive than competitors and is nowhere close to being one of the cheapest leases on a luxury SUV. Full Analysis »

Chevy Blazer V6 deal. Even though it's more expensive than the base Blazer, choosing the V6 may actually cost you less money. Believe it or not, a key difference in lease rates can make the more powerful SUV $1/month cheaper to lease. As a result, it may be possible to truly get more for less money. Read Our Analysis »

CVRP rule change. An upcoming change to the California Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) will soon exclude half a dozen plug-ins due to a stricter minimum range requirement.

Taycan upgrade incentive. Over-the-air updates from Porsche allow Taycan owners to add (and potentially remove) safety and convenience features after purchase. However, the sales experience may not end once you leave the lot because dealers are being incentivized to get you to upgrade. Learn More »

GV70 fuel economy. Early EPA scores for the upcoming Genesis GV70 show that it may have just a 1 mpg advantage in fuel economy compared to the larger GV80. That said, a closer look finds that this may not tell us the full story of just how efficient the all-new luxury SUV will be next to competitors. Full Story »
