Best End-of-the-Year Car Deals include the Toyota Avalon

As the end of the year approaches, great car deals are available now. New car shoppers will see significant rebates and more wiggle room in negotiations as automakers and dealers try to clear showrooms and reach 2019 sales goals.

Consumer Reports’ analysts looked through national incentives to help holiday car shoppers. We found many models offering significant savings, but to make sure the featured cars represent smart buys, we concentrated on models with a strong Overall Score factoring road-test performance, owner satisfaction, reliability, and safety. (Learn more about CR car ratings.)

Among these good cars, we found 2020 models that can be had with projected savings of up to 14 percent off the original window sticker price. And some 2019s from Chrysler, Ford, Kia, and Toyota were spotted with even bigger discounts. Of course, local supply and demand will influence how much a dealer is willing to bend on price. 


Go to Consumer Reports’ 2019 Holiday Gift Guide for updates on deals, expert product reviews, insider shopping tips, and much more.  
 

In the final hours of the year, dealerships may be especially motivated to negotiate in order to reach monthly and annual sales targets, which are typically rewarded by the automaker. Armed with all the information available on our model pages, you can definitely get a great deal now.

All nationwide incentives featured here are good until Jan. 2. The vehicles are listed in order of percentage of potential savings off the sticker price. Similar discounts can be found on other versions in addition to those spotlighted.

There are also great deals of 15 percent or more off some remaining 2019 models, including the Chrysler 300, Ford Mustang, Kia Cadenza, Nissan Rogue Sport, Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry, and Toyota Sequoia

And there are likely to be regional deals that outshine these national offerings. They can be found through our Build & Buy Car Buying Service
