New Cars with the Biggest Average Discounts

June 7, 2012

Some vehicles come with much bigger discounts than their competitors. It's all due to supply and demand.

You should be aware of which cars are likely to be heavily discounted so you can be better informed when comparison shopping multiple brands.

Anyone who's been shopping for a new Hyundai Elantra can tell you they're selling with barely any discounts. Other models are averaging close to 20% off MSRP.

Here's a list of the average discounts you can expect by brand. Note these figures are an average of all models and trim levels within that brand. Individual models may vary greatly from these figures.

Also note that these are "average" discounts. By using a tool like the CarWoo Deal Finder, you should be able to beat these averages.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
