2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring Price Drops $1,800
Hyundai has slashed the price of the 2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring by $1,800. The 2010 Base Price will be $16,715. The 2009 model was priced at $18,520.
Before considering the 2010 model, remember that when a new model year comes out, dealers aren't usually willing to negotiate heavily since demand is oftentimes higher than supply.
You have two attractive options here. Either wait until next year before purchasing the 2010 model, or try to get a good deal on the 2009 Elantra later this year (Most likely after the 2010 has hit showrooms).
Car makers don't like it when last year's models are still on the lot when the new one is introduced, especially if the new one is priced lower.
We're expecting some great incentives to come down the road on the 2009 Hyundai Elantra. Keep an eye on incentives to help decide whether a 2009 or 2010 Elantra is the best deal for you.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price.

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
