Consumer Reports Analysts Recommend These Best New Car Deals for July 4th Sales
According to Consumer Reports, vehicle owners have been on a rocky road since the beginning of the pandemic last year with shortages in computer chips and inflated material costs that have led to a reduced inventory of both new and used cars.
However, all is not lost as CR reveals that by studying national incentives that will be available between today and July 6, now is the right time to discover what models they recommend based on past strong overall scores, road-test performance, and owner satisfaction as well as reliability and safety.
While you may find some regional deals that offer as much in savings…or better, their list of the following 5 new car models rated at savings between 22% to 12% off, will help you decipher the best deal to suit your needs, your desires and your wallet.
The Top Five From Best Savings to Good Savings
#1: The 2021 Nissan Leaf---at a price range of $31,670 to $43,970 with an expected discount offer as high as 22% off according to their research, the 2021 Nissan Leaf is an attractive buy for the Green conscious car buyer who is looking for not just a good, but a great deal.

#2: The 2021 Toyota Avalon---at a price range of $36,125 to $43,400 with an expected discount offer as high as 15% off according to their research, that is a good Green choice as well.
