“SUVs and crossovers have continued to be a major reason why auto sales have remained stable throughout much of 2019, generating significant demand to keep sales steady as a result of healthy consumer demand for both financing and lease options,” said Jenn Reid, Equifax’s vice president of Automotive Marketing and Strategy. “Promotional deals, incentives, a stable employment market and waning concerns on areas such as tariffs have all fueled the automotive market through November. It is no surprise we’re continuing to see year-over-year increases in balances particularly, and we believe this trend is poised to continue into the new year.”
