Summertime 4x4 bargains are here. But why? One factor is supply vs. demand.
Summertime 4x4 bargains are here. But why? One factor is supply vs. demand. For example, in the winter it might snow and it will certainly rain like Niagara Falls. The roads will be slippery and dangerous - so every man, woman, and child will want to swap the family saloon for a rugged four-wheel-drive. Traders recognise this, so 4x4 prices may rise accordingly. Interestingly, convertible prices also rise and fall according to the time of year.The weather is currently rather pleasant, so less motorists feel the need to purchase a hard-core terrain-tamer. Hence, prices are lower than they may be come November. As such, Motoring.co.uk's extensive new car database reveals the Land Rover Freelander 2 could be your route to 4x4 happiness for £25,005. It is also listed on a personal contract purchase plan, for forty-one payments of £299 at 7.9% APR. The deposit is only £7,689. The Land Rover Freelander 2 is available on the second-hand market too. This mud- plunger is listed in our used car database, with 'buy safe trusted sellers', from only £15,000. This buys a 2007 model with 55,000 miles recorded on the stylish dashboard. Spend £18,000 and the mileage drops to 30,000. These 4x4s are barely run-in at that distance, so expect plenty of trouble-free winter driving. Hurray for 4x4 summer bargains.
