The industry average incentive spending per unit will be approximately $2,831 in July, which represents a 1% drop from June but a 4% increase from this time last year.



"In terms of SAAR, July is likely to be the best month for vehicle sales since the 'Cash-for-Clunkers' Program fueled August 2009," said Jesse Toprak, VP of Industry Trends and Insight for TrueCar.com. "The fact that retail sales are up despite the flat incentive spending indicates a marked improvement in consumer demand, which offers promise for a more robust second half recovery."
