Best new car deals

Save money on Consumer Reports recommended cars

Last updated: August 2014

A great price isn't necessarily a good deal if the vehicle doesn't measure up, so we help you choose a good car at a good price with monthly list of best new car deals. The featured vehicle highlighted below has an attractive incentive that can save you extra money, and it is recommended by Consumer Reports, as are all models detailed below.

Other trims on the vehicles listed may also present good deals. Find the full pricing information in the New Car Price Reports. Then, continue your research by comparing model ratings, reliability, reviews, fuel economy, performance, and much more with our New Car Selector (available to online subscribers). Although incentives all eventually expire, they are often renewed. Check the price reports for the very latest offers and details.

2014 Ford Mustang

$3,798 savings available (expires 9/2/14)

The summer season is a great time to purchase that sporty car you’ve always dreamed of and this iconic muscle car is a nice choice. The Mustang has agile handing and a powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine that sounds great. The upright stance allows for a decent view out and fairly easy access, making it a reasonable choice for daily driving. The front seats are comfortable, but the rear seats are tight. Interior fit and finish is fairly basic. A redesigned Mustang arrives in the fall, so dealers may be willing to offer additional savings.

Get the best price on your next new car

The key to getting the lowest price on a car is to know how much negotiating room you have. That means knowing all of the current sales incentives, including behind-the-scenes dealer perks. That information is what makes the CR Bottom Line Price the best place to begin your new-car negotiations. It's calculated by subtracting any rebates, dealer incentives, or holdback amounts from the dealer-invoice price. That gives you a good idea of how much negotiating room you have below the car's sticker price. Armed with those figures, you can often save thousands of dollars when buying a new car. Get the CR Bottom Line Price on your next new car through Consumer Reports' New Car Price Reports.
