AutoComplete: Toyota cuts 2017 RAV4 pricing for almost all variantsPlus: Study finds people willing to pay big bucks for autonomy, and BMW silently stops production of the 6 Series coupe.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. Even though it's in the middle of a model year, Toyota has lowered the price on several different Rav4 models. The base LE now costs $24,410 which is $500 less than it was before. The biggest discount is on the XLE trim which is $13,030 cheaper at $25,500. The same discount applies to both the front wheel drive and the all wheel drive models But it doesn't apply to the [UNKNOWN] and platinum trim, nor any hybrid models. How much money would you pay to gain partial or full autonomy in your car? According to a new study, most buyers are willing to pay about $3500 for partial autonomy, like automatic emergency braking. And about $4900 for full autonomy. Not everyone agreed, though. A number of respondents said they would pay nothing at all, while some others were willing to shell out as much as $10,000 for the luxury of taking their hands off the wheel. BMW has quietly discontinued the 6 Series coupe in several markets, as a majority of 6 Series buyers opt for the convertible or the grand coupe hatchback. It's unclear what BMW has planned for the six series now. While the five series just underwent a significant redo, there are rumors that BMW will revive the eight series name plate. Potentially sacrificing the six series along the way. BMW isnt saying much, so we'll just have to wait through another year or two of auto shows to find out.
