Best new car deals

Save money on Consumer Reports' recommended cars

Last updated: December 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.

2015 Ford Fusion

$2,963 savings available (expires 1/5/15)

The Fusion looks upscale and stylish, and it handles like a really good European sports sedan. We bought three versions: a top-trim Titanium, a mid-trim SE, and the SE Hybrid. All versions provide a composed, civilized ride that's as good as cars costing twice as much. The cabin is blessedly quiet. The Titanium version is the best-handling midsized sedan we've tested. And the Hybrid model posted the best fuel economy we've measured in a midsized sedan: 39 mpg overall. A plug-in version is also available.

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.
