Best New Cars to Consider for 2017

January 5, 2017

This week, Cars.com released a list of 2017 Car of the Year nominees. These are what they consider the best vehicles within six different categories.

If you're shopping for a vehicle within these categories, I urge you to test-drive the recommended vehicle. For example, in the compact SUV category, Cars.com feels the Kia Sportage is best, but a lot of car shoppers ignore this particular model.

I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices dealers are willing to offer in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds 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.
