Biggest Discounts on New Cars

November 1, 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 with a few 2019 models sprinkled in. The 2018 FIAT 500e has the highest average discount off MSRP of 25.64%. Some popular 2018 models on the list include the Kia Optima (21.62% discount), and Ram 1500 (20.58% discount).

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