Base as heck, but all brand-new.

Whether it’s your first car or your 14th, there’s nothing quite like that brand new car smell for not a lot of dough. If you’re not financing or leasing, but buying with cold hard cash instead, where should you look?

Well, we’ve scoured the interwebs and brought you the cheapest dang cash deals for 2017 model year new vehicles in Canada. Cars like the Chevy Spark and Mitsubishi Mirage have low MSRPs, but throw in freight and PDI and those numbers change around. While the Nissan Micra stays on top with reasonable freight/PDI rates and a good discount, cars like the Hyundai Accent jump to the top of the list because of deep discounts. Deep discounting even puts a Jeep on our list, although it’s a front-wheel drive model, which seems counter to Jeep’s brand image.

While the three-door Toyota Yaris seems like poor value against its competition here, pricing on cars like the Ford Fiesta and Focus might leave you scratching your head as to why there’s only a $450 difference between the compact and subcompact.

The following list is ordered by the total selling price after freight and PDI have been added in minus any available discounts at the time of this writing. Taxes will vary by the province or territory you’re in, and so will those small government mandated fees like air-conditioning tax and tire levies.
