Top 10 Cars to Consider in 2013

January 3, 2013

The new year is here, and now is a great time to check out the new vehicles that should be on your watch list for 2013. Consumer Reports just released a list of what they consider the 10 hottest cars for 2013.

Their list includes the most exciting new models, refreshes, and redesigns. And as always if you're considering any of the following vehicles, I recommend using theĀ CarWoo Deal Finder to get the best deal.

The 2013 Cars to Watch List

Vehicle Why Its Hot
Audi Q3Audi's entrance into the compact luxury SUV market
Chevrolet CorvetteRedesigned with a new LT1 V8 engine, plus fuel efficiency (26 mpg on the highway)

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show 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.
