Best deals on brand-new cars

New car sales have been drastically affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Still, leases end, accidents happen and dealerships across the United States are working hard to keep up with the needs of their customers. Using data provided by TrueCar.com, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best automotive deals for May. We’ve noted the original MSRP, the average transaction price, and the total savings in dollars and as a percentage of the original sticker price.

Basically, we’ve done all the hard work for you! So now, all you need do is compare deals, go on a few test drives, and maybe drive away in a great car (and an even better bargain).

Note that the list descends from the biggest discount by percentage and includes vehicles from the 2019 model year.

2019 Volvo S60

MSRP $40,170
Average transaction: $34,398
Discount: $5,772
Percentage off MSRP: 14.4%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The Volvo S60 is a fine new luxury sport sedan, with a pretty exterior, radiant interior, and sparkling road manners. It ranks with the best of luxury sedans with refined power and responsive handling.

There are three drivetrains, so there are three characters of car. A T5 turbocharged four-cylinder makes 250 horsepower with front-wheel drive; a T6 supercharged turbo four generates 316 horsepower with all-wheel drive. The very rare T8 plug-in hybrid is rated at 400 horsepower with AWD. All are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. 

The EPA rates the front-drive T5 at 24 mpg city, 36 highway, 28 combined. With all-wheel drive and a supercharged engine, the T6 drops to 21/32/25 mpg. The T8 is rated at 22 miles of electric range with its plug-in hybrid pack on a full charge, and 31 mpg combined when it's run in hybrid mode.

The S60 has an overall length of 187.4 inches long and a 113.1-inch wheelbase. Interior space is fine for up to four adults-and it's a spectacular cabin in top trims, with beautiful wood and leather trim to buff up its pretty design.

2019 Infiniti Q50

MSRP $41,965
Average transaction: $35,969
Discount: $5,996
Percentage off MSRP: 14.3%

Since its debut as a 2014 model, the sharply-styled Infiniti Q50 sedan has given drivers an alternative to prestigious German models. It's back again for the new model year, as it keeps pace with rivals with more standard equipment.

All Q50 sedans now include forward emergency braking and forward-collision warnings. Nissan's luxury division has revised the model lineup and modified equipment, while refreshing both exterior and interior appearance.

The Q50 comes in several trim levels: base Pure, Luxe, Sport, and Red Sport. Infiniti dropped the Q50 Hybrid last year.

Infiniti offers a trio of powertrain choices. The base turbocharged four-cylinder engine makes 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Able to outshine budget-level Audis and BMWs, the base engine comes only in Pure trim level.

Luxe and Sport trims are equipped with a 3.0-liter turbo V6 that develops 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet. The 300-hp engine pits the Q50 against such performance rivals as the competitors like Mercedes-Benz AMG C43 and BMW M340i. In the Red Sport edition, the 3.0 V6 reaches even higher into performance territory, producing 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet.

All Q50 sedans use a seven-speed automatic transmission, coupled to standard rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available with any powertrain for an additional $2,000.

2019 Volkswagen e-Golf

MSRP $37,281
Average transaction: $31,992
Discount: $5,289
Percentage off MSRP: 14.2%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The Volkswagen e-Golf, the all-electric version of the long-running Golf hatchback, serves up a taste of German engineering without burning a drop of fossil fuel. This version of the Golf was designed from the start to accommodate electric power, so it comes as no surprise that the e-Golf looks and feels nearly identical to the rest of the line. You get the same packaging, versatility, and driving dynamics that give the other versions their appeal. 

Like its siblings, the e-Golf is conservatively styled, but that doesn't mean dowdy in this case. The hatchback body looks crisp and mature. Some might even call it classic. If you're looking for an EV that doesn't look like one, this is it. The only clues are the shuttered grille and lack of a tailpipe, which actually result in a sleeker appearance. The e-Golf also gets unique LED lighting in front and a special wheel design. 

Under the hood is a 115-horsepower electric motor that delivers 83 miles of range and 126/105 MPGe City/Highway. (MPGe is the EPA's measurement of how far an EV can travel on the amount of energy in a gallon of gas.) A single-speed automatic transmission delivers power to the front wheels, and a lithium-ion battery pack is mounted under the passenger floor. The e-Golf offers quick-charge technology that can restore a depleted battery to 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes.

2019 Audi S4

MSRP $51,733
Average transaction: $44,405
Discount: $7,328
Percentage off MSRP: 14.2%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The Audi S4 is a high-performance version of the compact A4. Like the four-door sedan it's based on, the S4 offers attractive but subdued styling, and adds hints that there's more power beneath the surface larger wheels and lowered suspension. An S sport package adds a touch more visual flair. Inside, Audi's touchscreen MMI system and virtual cockpit display offer high-tech appeal.

The S4 is offered in Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige trim levels. All three versions use a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that sends 349 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and Audi's sophisticated Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

MSRP $45,891
Average transaction: $39,520
Discount: $6,371
Percentage off MSRP: 13.9%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

Introduced as a 2018 model, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the Italian automaker's first SUV. The Stelvio blends gorgeous Italian style with scintillating performance and a healthy helping of visual charm, along with luxury features.

Two new option packages add some visual flair to the Stelvio body. Nero Edizione option groups can add blacked-out trim elements and unique 20-inch wheels. A Sport Carbon package adds considerable carbon-fiber trim to Sport models, while a Carbon Fiber package does likewise to the top-end Quadrifoglio.

Three basic trim levels are offered — base, Ti, and Quadrifoglio — along with Sport, Ti Sport, and Ti Lusso versions.

All Stelvios except the Quadrifoglio use a 2.0-liter turbo-four rated at 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters mates with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. A four-cylinder Stelvio can reach 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. A three-position Drive Mode selector is included, and aluminum paddle shifters are available.

Like the Giulia sedan, the Stelvio is offered in high-performance Quadrifoglio form, unleashing a Ferrari-sourced V6 that whips up 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet. Acceleration to 60 mph occurs in a scant 3.6 seconds. Quadrifoglios come with anodized brake calipers and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, among other performance-focused features.

2019 Maserati Ghibli

MSRP $80,346
Average transaction: $69,212
Discount: $11,134
Percentage off MSRP: 13.9%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

Maseratis are so rare in North America that you'll rarely see a Ghibli in most parts of the country. And because it is a beautiful and exciting sedan, yet relatively attainable, Ghibli has rocketed to the top of the charts for Maserati.

Most will agree that precious few four-doors come close to the visual appeal of the Maserati Ghibli. The iconic Maserati grille, the triple front-fender vents, the sculpted creases and curves, the fluid coupe-like roofline, the classic trident logos, the muscular rear-drive proportions and sinewy athletic stance, all add up to a unique blend of Italian sportiness and elegance. 

Inside the cabin is an equally happy marriage of premium Italian craftsmanship and modern amenities, the latter partly thanks to Chrysler-based electronics. The soft leather-covered seats look as good as they feel, and you can customize it with two-tone leather and wood or carbon fiber trim combinations and upgrade it with even finer Italian leather. 

Under that lovely sculpted hood is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 good for 345 horsepower in the standard Ghibli or 424 hp in the higher-performance Ghibli S Q4. It drives both models' rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission in normal conditions, or all four of the Ghibli S Q4's when its all-wheel drive senses a loss of rear grip.

2019 Infiniti Q70L

MSRP $57,460
Average transaction: $49,646
Discount: $7,814
Percentage off MSRP: 13.6%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The Infiniti Q70 successfully blends style and performance with luxury in this next-generation sedan, and the Q70L adds nearly half a foot of additional legroom.

Powered by a 3.7-liter, 330-horsepower V6 engine or a 5.6-liter, 420-horsepower V8 engine, the Q70 is matched with a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual sport shifting. Available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive it also includes Infiniti Drive Mode Selector and Hill Start Assist to help manage varying road conditions. Heated leather front seats with 10-way power adjustment and power lumbar are standard.

The Q70 and long-wheelbase Q70L disappear after the 2019 model year, so we don't expect these deals to last much longer.

2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

MSRP $102,151
Average transaction: $88,336
Discount: $13,816
Percentage off MSRP: 13.5%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

As much as almost any other vehicle on the market, Mercedes-Benz's full-size S-Class flagship represents the pinnacle of luxury. Spectacular even in standard form, the 2019 S-Class comes in three body styles, in addition to the ultra-luxury Maybach spin-off. 

Rather than trim levels, the S-Class is organized according to powertrain: V6, V8, or V12. The base S 450 contains a marvelous twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that whips up 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. With its smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission, the S 450 can reach 60 mph in 5 seconds or less, according to Mercedes-Benz.

Stepping up to V8 power, the AMG S 63 gets a twin-turbo engine that blasts out (in an appropriately genteel manner, of course) a mind-altering 603 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Hitting that 60-mph mark takes a startling 3.4 seconds — among of the swiftest sedans on the market.

Output from the 6.0-liter V-12 in the AMG S 65 rises to 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet, but it's slower in acceleration than the V8.

2019 Audi A6

MSRP $64,980
Average transaction: $56,277
Discount: $8,704
Percentage off MSRP: 13.4%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The shapely Audi A6 midsize sedan was redesigned for 2019, and most of the big gains come in less visible ways. Yes, the shape's been subtly tweaked, but more important are its stiffer chassis and lighter body, which improves the 2019 A6's ride and handling. 

Likewise, its former supercharged 3.0-liter V6 has been replaced by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes the same horsepower, but has much more torque that comes on at lower rpm and peaks later. It also uses a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can power accessories such as heat and air conditioning when the car is stopped, but not when it's shut off. 

The new engine makes 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque, which is 44 more pound-feet of torque than the old engine. Its acceleration from 0-60 mph takes 5.1 seconds, same as the previous year. It's mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel drive, which cuts power to the rear wheels when extra traction isn't needed.

The wheelbase of the 2019 A6 is a half-inch longer than before, although the interior room is the same, roomy enough for a midsize car. On the outside, the length is the same, the grille is bigger, the fender flares understated, and there are new headlights and taillights. 

The base Premium model has an unchanged dashboard layout, but the other two models, Premium Plus and Prestige, feature three screens: a 12.3-inch digital dash, a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, and an 8.6-inch touchscreen for vehicle functions. The improvement was made to better display all the various functions, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, now standard. 

EPA fuel mileage is 22 mpg city, 29 highway, and 25 combined on premium gas. That's 1 mpg better than the all-wheel-drive BMW 540i and 2 mpg better than the Mercedes-Benz E300.

2019 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

MSRP $32,819
Average transaction: $28,428
Discount: $4,390
Percentage off MSRP: 13.4%

Click here for the Autoblog Smart Buy program, which brings you a hassle-free buying experience with over 9,000 Certified Dealers nationwide.

The Volkswagen Golf family of hatchbacks and wagons has a model for most tastes. The compact Golf ranges from mild to wild in performance, with the Golf GTI marking the hot end of the spectrum. A 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the Alltrack and produces 168-horsepower.

The Golf Alltrack is available in S, SE, and SEL variants. Unpainted plastic fender flares on Alltrack wagons give a hint of outdoorsy and rugged intentions. The roomy interior offers 30 cubic feet of space with the rear seatbacks upright and 66.5 cubic feet when folded. The Alltrack model sits less than an inch higher off the ground than a regular Golf SportWagen and isn't really intended for off-roading, but its all-weather capability is worth it for certain buyers.
