                                  * - Range Rover sold at 3.08% above MSRP – on average – in November.

The demand for a "hot" car presents a dilemma: While shoppers are attracted to these vehicles' new and unique features, they also come with a higher price tag.

"Dealers offer few – if any – incentives on the newest, most buzz-worthy cars, and shoppers will likely have very little room to negotiate," says Edmunds.com Consumer Advice Editor Carroll Lachnit. "So if shoppers are patient enough to wait a few months for the buzz to subside, they're more likely to score a better deal."

Of course, many shoppers need a vehicle right away, and don't have the luxury to wait until the excitement dies down. One efficient way for these shoppers to locate and identify better deals on high-demand cars is to use Edmunds.com's Price Promisesm, which offers users upfront pricing on cars available in their areas. Shoppers can confirm that a fast-selling vehicle is still in stock, and can also learn exactly what they can expect to pay before they walk into the showroom.

Car shoppers looking to score the best deals are also encouraged to check Edmunds.com's Car Incentives and Rebates page to see what discounts are available on their favorite cars. Edmunds.com experts also identify the cars and trucks with the most appealing deals right now at http://www.edmunds.com/deals-of-month.html.
