Best Deals on 15 Small Cars

Smaller cars can offer quite a few benefits -- easier to find parking, requires less gas, and generally has a lower price, helping to make it a great option for buyers on a tight budget.

If you're in the market for a smaller car right now, I've got some good news -- there's a lot of great deals going on in October to help make that price even smaller. U.S. News & World Report's Best Cars Blog has all the details on these deals, which includes both leasing and financing deals with low APR and even cash back bonuses in some cases. Vehicles on the list include the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, 2014 Hyundai Accent, 2015 Ford Fiesta, and 2014 Mazda2.

As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best deals on these vehicles in your local area.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.
