Sounds similar, but there’s a huge difference – refresh means a slightly updated from the previous model year, whereas redesign means all-new from the ground up.
How to know which it is? Use the 5-year Test – typically, a vehicle is redesigned once every five years.
Read it online at Autonet.
Use this to your advantage when shopping, because all-new doesn’t mean it’s all-better (see last 3 paragraphs)
Say to the salesman: Next year the car is being redesigned, so who is going to want this year’s model? It’s about to become outdated, so give me a better price!
