According to iseecars.com, the average new vehicle is currently selling for 11.4% above MSRP.
The online marketplace was able to round up several models that have been selling with lower than average markups, however, and there are few financing deals out there to help take the sting out of a purchase.
The Renegade is Jeep’s smallest model and has an MSRP of $26,560. (Jeep)
The Jeep Renegade subcompact SUV, for instance, can be found with regional incentives up to $4,250 and 0% financing, while the Honda Passport midsize SUV is available with a $1,250 cash back deal and many electric cars, including the Hyundai Kona EV, qualify for various federal and local tax credits.
The Honda Passport starts at $34,015. (Honda)
