Real Prices of New Compact SUVs

March 28, 2019

If you're in the market for a new compact SUV, take a look at the following tables I compiled using TrueCar's average selling prices. These days, MSRP doesn't mean much since hardly anyone expects to pay that price. But it can be difficult to determine which models are actually cheapest without knowing what kind of average discount they're selling for. Some have discounts of nearly 20%, while others - such as the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, are selling for only a few percent below MSRP.

The table below is sorted by biggest average discount off MSRP, with the 2018 Jeep Compass having the biggest average discount (17.1% after incentives).

You can sort the table by clicking on any column. For examle, if you want to see the cheapest SUVs, sort by "Avg" column and you'll see the 2020 Kia Soul is selling at the lowest average price of $21,490.

I hope you find these tables useful. As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the best deals being offered in your local area.
