The Best Compact SUV of 2016

This week, Cars.com published a detailed review/comparison of recently remodeled compact SUVs. If you're in the market for one of these vehicles, you should definitely check it out.

They go into great detail about what they like and don't like about each vehicle, and compare things like comfort, interior, cargo space, and room for child seats. Their top pick is the 2017 Ford Escape, followed closely by the 2017 Kia Sportage.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to quickly see the best deals being offered in your 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.
