The Best Deals on Midsize Cars

January 7, 2016

One of the big problems when it comes to shopping for a new car is that you can't really compare vehicles based solely off of MSRP. That's because some cars have way more flexibility on price, due to hidden incentives and price structures.

This week, with the help of TrueCar's pricing data, I compiled a list to help you compare the real average prices you can expect to pay for midsize cars. The differences between MSRP and what you can actually buy these vehicles for is somewhat shocking. They range from $1,519 up to nearly $7,000 discounts off MSRP.

When it comes to midsize cars, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata has the lowest average selling price of $20,765, or $6,230 off MSRP. Check out the full list below, and be sure to use TrueCar No Haggle to see what the prices are in your local area (they may be better or worse than the list below since these averages are nationwide).

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
