Consumer Reports Most Discounted New Cars to Buy Now

New car deals with a discount below the suggested retail price

Earlier this year, we reported on the best nationwide incentives for models recommended by Consumer Reports regarding the best new SUV deals for early summer 2022.

Today, however, there is a new list focused on MSRP sticker prices and what people recently paid that caught your eye this month, consisting of sedans, SUVs, and trucks.

Armed with the most current lists of what sold when and for how much, your arsenal expands as you negotiate with a car dealer based on your fact-based research; and 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.
