The Most Discounted New Cars Right Now

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 transacting for less than $50,000. (There are large discounts on more expensive models from Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo.)

Of course, you may be able to negotiate an even lower price, but bear in mind that there’s a limit to how low prices can go, especially as demand sometimes outstrips supply these days. And as we’ve found in buying cars for testing, a decent deal can vanish quickly, so you may need to act fast.

Something else to keep in mind is that deals can vary not only by vehicle but also by geographic region. Being armed with the latest information on pricing, rebates, and transaction prices in your area can help you net a good deal.

The most discounted cars are all 2024 models, and they’re listed below in descending order of savings off MSRP by percentage. Other buyers have recently purchased these vehicles for 5 to 7 percent off the original price. (See 10 cheap cars that Consumer Reports recommends.)

Pricing details on the versions highlighted below and other trims are available on our model pages, along with complete road tests, reliability, owner satisfaction, and other key information. CR members can log in to see the car ratings.

Even though these deals are relatively good, it’s wise to buy when the time is right for you. Dealerships are happy to sell you a car anytime. (If you want to buy now, read about CR’s Build & Buy Car Buying service below.)
