2014 Models With Biggest Price Drops

Every year, car manufacturers unveil a number of vehicles that are new for that particular year, and 2014 was no exception. Now that it's a year later, car buyers may be interested in knowing just how much value those "new to 2014" vehicles held.

Forbes recently released a list of the top "new to 2014" vehicles that held their value the best -- as well as those that had the worst value retention. You may want to consider buying the vehicles on the worst value retention list if you're looking to get a good deal on a slightly used vehicle.

The top value holder amongst 2014 models was the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, retaining 84.7% of value from its MSRP. While in comparison, the Mitsubishi Mirage had the worst value retention, holding on to only 54.5% of its value from MSRP. Below is a look at the top five value winners and losers.

If you're considering buying a new car, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the best deals being offered 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).
