10 Best New-Car Deals For March 2017 By KBB.com
Bargains Abound from Entry-Level to Luxury in Kelley Blue Book's Top Lease, Financing, Cash Back Deals of Month

IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- If the thought of spring has you itching for a new set of wheels, there are several standout new-car deals available in March, according to the experts from Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com, the vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry.  After examining the latest new-car data, KBB.com editors have assembled their list of the 10 best lease, financing and cash back deals for new vehicles available in March 2017 from a variety of automakers. 

"We're three months into 2017, and yet many dealers still have brand-new 2016 model-year vehicles sitting on their lots  they can't wait to sell, and that presents a great opportunity for shoppers to get a good deal," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "If you're going to keep the car for the long haul the fact that it is a 2016 doesn't make much difference, but factor the model year in if you plan to flip the car in two or three years. It will be worth less than a comparable 2017. The good news is this month's list of the best deals truly offers something for everyone."

Below are the KBB.com editors' picks for standout new-car lease, financing and cash back deals, all available at least through March 31, 2017:
