Biggest Discounts on Leftover Models

January 24, 2019

If you're looking for a great deal on a new car and you intend to keep it for at least 5 years, buying a leftover model or model that is close to being replaced is usually a good bet - and now is still a good time to take advantage of any remaining 2018 models. Some desired colors and options may be harder to find in your area depending on how long the 2019 model has been available, but most of these models still have some options and colors to choose from.

Using TrueCar's database, I compiled a list of the best 2018 model year deals available right now based on average nationwide selling prices. The list includes some models that are being discontinued or redesigned, with some models such as the Cadillac XT5 offering nearly $8,000 off MSRP.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.
