New Cars With Biggest Price Drops

The table below aims to show you which vehicles are "ripe for the picking", meaning now is a great time to purchase due to various market conditions.

I've been analyzing TrueCar's pricing data for the past year, and can now pinpoint which vehicles have had the biggest price drops over the past 12 months.

The important column below is "Price Drop From Peak". It shows how much you would save right now compared to shoppers who purchased the same vehicle at it's peak over the past year. For example, if you were to buy the 2017 FIAT 500L this week, you would get a discount of 19.86% more than the average buyer paid for the same vehicle at its peak over the last 12 months.

The best way to use the chart below is to see if any vehicle you're interested in is on the list. If so, then now is generally a good time to buy that vehicle. Each vehicle on this list is either near or at its 12-month "peak deal".

Use TrueCar to quickly see which dealers can match these prices in your local area.
