Biggest Discounts on New Cars

October 4, 2018

TrueCar is one of my top recommendations for new car shoppers. They have a network of 14,000 car dealers that provide no-haggle prices through the service.

TrueCar compiles lots of data when it comes to real-world car prices - they know the average AND best prices people are paying on every make and model throughout the country - they granted me access to this data, I'd like to share my findings with you.

A large number of the top deals right now are still on 2018 models and some leftover 2017 models, with the 2018 FIAT 500e having the highest average discount off MSRP of 25.73%. Some popular 2018 models on the list include the Kia Optima (21.02% discount), and Ram 1500 (20.89% discount).

The good news is these deals should all be readily available on TrueCar - no negotiation required.
