Edmunds Most Popular New Car Awards for 2016

Edmunds has around 18 million new car shoppers visit their website monthly to research, compare and price new cars.

Each year Edmunds collects anonymous search data to determine the most inquired about new cars within each category. For 2015 they used search data from January 1, 2015 to November 16, 2015. The most viewed vehicle in each category was awarded the 2016 Most Popular Vehicle on Edmunds.

Honda is one of the most searched brands on Edmunds, six out of the twenty categories have a Honda vehicle sitting in first place. The Honda Civic is the most popular vehicle in the highly competitive compact car category. There are many compact vehicles catching up with the Civic; However, impressive performance and great fuel economy have kept the Honda Civic the number one choice for many new car shoppers.

Competition Always Gets You the Best New Car Price

When negotiating a new car’s price, it’s important to know the dealer invoice price and what other people are paying for the same vehicle in your local area. Otherwise, you won’t know what’s a good price to pay for the vehicle.

I highly recommend using an online referral service such as Ryde Shopper or Motor Trend, their quotes will automatically include any discounts or cash-back incentives currently available in the marketplace.
