New Car Deals Below MSRP

Analysts at CR recently mined car purchasing data to find out what car models’ people are buying today that offer savings below the MSRP ranging from 5 percent to 8 percent off the original price.

According to their newsletter: “For the analysis presented here, we looked back at recent transaction data from TrueCar, a CR partner, to see where people are finding significant savings off the sticker price on 2024 models. We found that there are incentives for many 2024 vehicles and that there are quite a few models (admittedly skewing premium) selling for under the MSRP.”

“For this list we focused on what people paid, and we didn’t limit the selections to models that meet the stringent criteria to be recommended by CR. We identified 10 models that are selling for below their sticker price, with each going for less than $50,000.”

However, the caveat to these deals is that prices can vary not only by vehicle but also by geographic region and availability. CR analysts also point out this sensible bit of advice so as not to get too caught up with any car purchase―including those that they recommend:

“Even though these deals are relatively good, it’s wise to buy when the time is right for you.”

The Value of This List to New Car Shoppers

With that in mind, 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.
