New Car Deals Below MSRP

According to Consumer Reports, while the new car market of the past had been relatively stable with little fluctuation in pricing, the pandemic carryover from the past two years still pushes prices to their highest turning that yesteryear fluctuation more into a wild roller coaster ride.

However, this does not mean that discounts are a thing of the past---you just have to be on top of the market and catch those deals during the dips of the ride.

To help car buyers be aware of those dips, analysts at CR recently mined car purchasing data to find out what models people are buying today that offer savings below the MSRP---up to 2 percent to 10 percent off the original price.

The importance of this listing is that it arms car shoppers with the most recent listings of what sold when and for how much, which adds to your arsenal as you negotiate with a car dealer using your fact-based research. Furthermore, there is the added benefit of the knowledge that the trade-in value of your used car is an even more important bargaining chip this year than it was before the pandemic.

The 10 Most Discounted New Cars Right Now

That said, here are the 10 most discounted new car deals you may want to consider toward buying a new car right now; however, be aware that these models were selected primarily on their discount values for smart shoppers without the typical overall performance and reliability ratings Consumer Reports often bases their model selection criteria on.
