Younger Drivers Choosing Brands Like Kia & Chevy Over Toyota & Honda

Younger Generations Choosing Brands Like Kia And Chevy Over Honda And Toyota
By  Zach Bowman


Edmunds has taken a closer look at the buying habits of young adults. As it turns out, Gen X and Gen Y buyers are increasingly eschewing Japanese brands in favor of South Korean and American automakers. Five years ago, that wasn’t the case, with more than half of all young buyers flocking to brands like Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Subaru and Mazda. But the U.S. has made up quite a bit of ground in recent years by producing inexpensive and fuel efficient small cars that appeal to a younger audience. Likewise, Hyundai and Kia have sharpened their small car games as well, and are now making more credit available to younger customers.

Those efforts have begun to pay dividends. While Japanese brands have seen their share of 18-24 year-old buyers slide by 9.8 percent between 2008 and 2012, domestic automakers have enjoyed a 1.9 percent increase. South Korean brands, meanwhile, have enjoyed the largest jump, with a 6.8 percent increase over the same time period. Check out the full press release below for more information.

My Review of VanDevere Chevrolet:
Dennis and the crew gave the extra effort to bring a vehicle in from another Vandevere store so that I could see all vehicles that interested me at the one location. I ended up buying the car that was brought from Vandevere Downtown store.

The added service sold me on this sales person, Vandevere Chevrolet, and this 2011 Malibu.
