35 Biggest Year-End Discounts

December 29, 2016

This week, I analyzed TrueCar pricing data to figure out which popular models have the biggest end-of-year discounts nationwide. (TrueCar has granted me special access to this data)

Most of the top deals are on leftover models, such as the 2016 Nissan Altima, with an average discount off MSRP of 23%. The 2017 model with the largest discount is the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, with an average discount of 19% off MSRP. These discounts include all major rebates and incentives.

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

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
