Best Deals on SUVs You Can Buy Right Now

Consumer Reports has combed through the national deals to identify big discounts on good, safe, and reliable models

Best deals on new SUVs include the 2021 Kia Sportage

The coronavirus pandemic is driving big discounts on some new vehicles, along with attractive finance rates. But don't be swayed by advertising. The key strategy is to focus on good SUVs instead of just chasing great deals, to find the best car you can buy right now. 

To identify the best deals on new SUVs, Consumer Reports’ analysts studied current national incentives to find models worth consideration. To make sure the featured SUVs represent smart buys, we concentrated on models with a strong Overall Score, factoring in road-test performance, owner satisfaction, reliability, and safety.

All nationwide incentives featured below are good until November 30, 2020. The vehicles are listed in order of percentage of potential savings off the sticker price, from 17 percent to 5 percent. Similar discounts can be found on other versions in addition to the specific trim and configuration that we spotlight.

The challenge with pulling together this month's list is that so many of the heavily discounted SUVs don't meet the threshold to be CR Recommended. 

There may be regional deals that outshine these national offerings. They can be found through CR's Build & Buy Car Buying Service, a program that allows shoppers to configure the car they want, compare local transaction prices, and have participating dealers provide their best offer, which can and should include any of the multiple incentives now being offered.

Detailed pricing information and complete ratings are available for all current vehicles on their respective model pages, linked to below.

Local supply and demand will influence how much a dealer is willing to bend on price, especially as consumer behavior changes and dealerships face the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
