As they say, all good things must come to an end and that is true of vehicles, too. The death list of 2020 models is pretty extensive, more so than I recall in a while.
I get the question a lot about whether it is a good idea or not to buy a discontinued car. The big consideration is how long you plan to keep it. Vehicles that are known to be going away are typically bargains, however, if you usually only keep a car 3-4 years, the depreciation curve can be steep. For 5 years or longer, depreciation is not a big consideration.
Getting parts is not a problem either, parts will be around for many years, unless the manufacturer goes out of business, then it is an issue.
Please pause for a moment of silence in honor of these soon to be executed models, in alphabetical order:
Aston Martin Vanquish
BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo
Buick Cascada convertible
Chevy Corvette front engine
Chevy Volt hybrid
Hyundai Santa Fe XL
Jaguar F-type manual
Nissan 370Z convertible
