Want to find a great deal on your next auto investment? Getting bang for your buck goes beyond choosing the right auto repair franchise and conducting preventative vehicle maintenance - you can start the process by purchasing a new car that boasts many opportunities to save money. 

A recent study from TrueCar found that a few certain automobiles offered motorists significant savings, especially when considering the average car cost when compared to the manufacturer's suggested retail price. Based on the difference between these prices, the 2013 Ford Edge offers the best savings, with drivers having the ability to save $4,591 off the MSRP of $28,595, which is more than 16 percent of the total cost. 

"July is an ideal time to shop for a new car because it offers a great selection of vehicles before model-year-end clearance sales start depleting available choices at the dealers' lots," said TrueCar analyst Jesse Toprak. "If you're especially picky about the color or particular configuration of your new car, this would be a great time to kick the tires and still get some of the best deals of the year 2013 model-year vehicles." 

Other models offering significant savings include the 2013 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman, the 2013 Chrysler 300C and the 2013 Hyundai Sonata, all of which boasted savings of more than 10 percent off the MSRP.
