Cars with the Biggest Discounts

July 5, 2012

With 2013 models starting to hit dealer showrooms, now is a good time to start looking at 2012 models for the really big savings.

This week, I gathered pricing information on all 2012 models and sorted them by biggest average discounts off MSRP. These are the discounts that regular car buyers are negotiating nationwide.

The list shows the average discounts on the base models (including rebates), so different trim levels may not be as heavily discounted. Keep in mind these are only averages, and you may be able to negotiate bigger discounts in your local area. It all depends on the local supply and demand dyanmics of those particular models.

To find out if your local dealers can beat these discounts, I recommend you try the CarWoo Deal Finder
