Back-to-school traffic got you spending a little too much time in that old car? Consider something new. Discounts for the Labor Day weekend might be in the rearview mirror, and the rolling boil for new-car incentives has slowed to a simmer in recent months: Motor Intelligence pegs overall new-car discounts at $3,784 per car in August, up just 1.3 percent on the year-ago month. That's the lowest year-over-year increase in 41 months. Related: How to Negotiate With a Car Dealer The silver lining for shoppers, however, is September's strong showing for incentives in recent years.

It’s on again – less than six months ago we put the 2018 Kia Stinger 330Si up against the Aussie-built 2018 Holden Commodore SS-V Redline, and the results were surprising. In that test, the Kia Stinger blew us away with its performance and standard level of equipment. So much so that we gave it the win by a nose over the Australian favourite.

This Holden Commodore is no longer built in Australia, it’s now built in Germany, nor is the Commodore rear-wheel drive, it’s now all-wheel drive. Along the way it has also lost two cylinders, but gained a stack of standard equipment. The other big difference in this test is that the Kia Stinger is ours. We bought this one late last year for full price and we’ve stuck almost 11,000km on the clock since taking delivery. Why does any of that matter? Well, some of you thought that maybe the Stinger we tested had a special … [Read more...] about 2018 Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore VXR comparison
