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.
