Real Prices of New Compact SUVs

December 28, 2017

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 over 20%, while others, such as the 2018 Honda CR-V are selling close to MSRP.

The table below is sorted by biggest average discount off MSRP, with the 2017 Dodge Journey having the biggest discount (22.47% 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 leftover 2016 Jeep Patriot is selling at the lowest average price of $19,428.

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.

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.

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.
