The Best Compact Sedan of 2017

May 4, 2017

This week, Cars.com published a detailed review/comparison of compact sedans under $23,000. If you're in the market for one of these vehicles, you should definitely check it out.

They go into great detail about what they like and don't like about each vehicle, and compare things like comfort, interior, cargo space, and room for child seats. Their top pick is the 2017 Honda Civic.

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.

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.
