TrueCar | Never overpay. Hassle-free car buying from TrueCar Certified Dealers.

Pricing:
Two common prices shown for cars is MRSP (Manufacturer's suggested retail price) or Sticker Price posted on the car and
Dealer Invoice ( Roughly what the dealer paid the carmaker for the vehicle)
You can generally expect to pay somewhere between MSRP and Invoice price.
Many times there are incentives such as customer cash rebates or "dealer cash." Dealer cash is unadvertised money the manufacturer pays the dealership to help it sell cars.
Sometimes manufactures will have a "holdback" that they pay to the dealer after they sell the car, so even if they sell it at invoice they will make money. Source: Pricing Basics for New-Car Buying | edmunds.com
In addition the the MSRP you will have to pay a Destination fee of $850 and Regional Adjustment ($147 for Bridgewater NJ).

2. The 2016 honda HR-V is a smaller and more efficient version of the 2015 CR-V.

3. Crossover - A crossover, also known as a crossover utility vehicle (CUV), is based on a car's platform, while a traditional SUV uses the chassis of a truck. The result is that crossovers use "unibody" architecture, meaning the body and frame are one piece, while SUVs use a "body on frame" design. In that case, the body is built separately from the frame and placed together later. Crossovers are generally a smaller than traditional SUVs. The Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Mercedes G-Class are examples of traditional SUVs. The Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Nissan Pathfinder, Lexus RX and Acura MDX are some examples of crossover SUVs.
Many refer to car-based, unibody vehicles as SUVs even though they're crossovers by the above definition.
