The Best Deals on Midsize Cars
One of the big problems when it comes to shopping for a new car is that you can't really compare vehicles based solely off of MSRP. That's because some cars have way more flexibility on price, due to hidden incentives and price structures.
This week, with the help of TrueCar's pricing data, I compiled a list to help you compare the real average prices you can expect to pay for midsize cars. The differences between MSRP and what you can actually buy these vehicles for is somewhat shocking. They range from $1,519 up to nearly $7,000 discounts off MSRP.
When it comes to midsize cars, the 2015 Hyundai Sonata has the lowest average selling price of $20,765, or $6,230 off MSRP. Check out the full list below, and be sure to use TrueCar No Haggle to see what the prices are in your local area (they may be better or worse than the list below since these averages are nationwide).

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. 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 / 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.
