After rolling spring sales, inventories of 2010 cars are withdrawing, along with some of the sweets offers. Edmunds.com thinks nevertheless, that a few models will still have lower prices between now and summer’s end. Three of them are also on the list of winners in the 2010 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, released on June 17th: the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan and two SUVs: Chevrolet Tahoe and Cadillac Escalade.
Among individual models, Power named the top three in 20 groups. MoneyWatch reduced further those lists to come up with the best-made models you can probably get good deals during the following months.
Mercedes-Benz C-Class: Going ahead in the entry-level luxury group in Power’s quality survey, the C-Class proudly shows the eye-catching shaping Mercedes has been known for in past years. Match that with top safety evaluations and a relaxed driving experience and you’ve got a first-rate luxury sedan.
Chevrolet Tahoe: For some of us who drag trailers or boats, Tahoe has long been an optimal pick. Americans also like its seating for up to nine and off-road abilities. Yet Tahoe may be too large for some SUV consumers, drivers used to the size find its handling lively.
Cadillac Escalade: A favorite of sportsmen and hip-hop stars, the Escalade is top-ranked not only by Power but by american surveyed by U.S New which remarked on its stylish, eight-seat interior, coupled with the ability to haul heavy loads. It is expected added price cuts with the Escalade Hybrid whose 21 mpg rating in city driving, 22 highway is about 50% better than the standard engine.
