Real Prices of Compact Cars

If you're in the market for a new compact car, sales of these vehicles had taken a nosedive even before the pandemic, as consumers gravitated toward SUVs. In general, this category offers really good deals.

Take a look at the following table I compiled using TrueCar's average selling prices. These days, MSRP doesn't mean much since hardly anyone expects to pay that price. But it can be difficult to determine which competing models are actually cheapest without knowing what kind of average discount they're selling for.

The default view shows the biggest average discount you can expect for each model this week, with the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia having the biggest discount (11.2% after incentives).

You can sort the table by clicking on any column. For examle, if you want to see the cheapest cars, sort by "Avg" column and you'll see that the 2022 Kia Forte has the cheapest average selling price - at $20,143.

I hope you find these tables useful. As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and NADAGuides 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).
