    Vehicles Selling For The Least Amount OVER MSRP

    If you're in the market for a new set of wheels, you've likely been happily surprised at your vehicle's trade-in value, while at the same time experiencing some sticker shock.  That's because the average new car is priced 11.4 percent over MSRP in the wake of inventory constraints from the microchip shortage. According to our friends at the research group, iSeeCars.com, while no new vehicles are priced below MSRP on average, you can find vehicles with lower-than-average markups along with lease deals with low APRs, low monthly payments, and low down payments.

    Here are 15 new cars with the smallest increases over MSRP according to iSeeCars.com research.
