If you want to ring in the new year with a great deal on a new car, this year-end edition of "Steals on Wheels" is just what you need to help with your new-car search. Some of the best opportunities for new car shopping come with the arrival of the new year, so now is the best time for car shoppers to keep their eyes open for a great deal on their next new car. With each edition of "Steals on Wheels" we share a collection of the very best car prices we can find to help shoppers find the best deal on their next new car purchase. To help celebrate the arrival of 2013, we're sharing the 15 greatest discounts on we can find, highlighting the best potential deal across a variety of sizes and segments.
These deals offer 15 great potential discounts available all the way into 2013, with possible savings ranging from 5.9% to 15.2% on a variety of models. Market average pricing on these vehicles demonstrate a range of discounts off Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Pricing (MSRP) that can be as much as $6,488 off some of these models. We highlight the top discounts off the MSRP by the particular trim level, since potential discounts can vary greatly between the trim levels. So for this edition, V-6 CVT 3.5 SV of the 2012 Nissan Maxima sedan lineup (for example), was the most highly discounted trim of the entire maxima lineup in relation to its MSRP, and was a high enough discount to make the top of our list.
Our chart also includes fuel economy figures to help you compare not just savings at the dealership but savings at the pump, as well. Note: Because our selection of new car deals cross all segments from small cars to large trucks, there’s a wide disparity of MPG between this week’s selections. If you're looking for the best deal on a vehicle with great fuel economy, the Ford Focus hatchback leads this week's pack, with 28 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 33.5 mpg combined.
Last week’s edition of “Steals on Wheels” shared the greatest discounts on 2013 models, highlighting the best potential deal in each size and segment, so if you had your eye on one of those vehicles, keep on shopping, as many of those deals may still be available in the upcoming week at a Program Certified Dealer near you.
