Okay, so I currently own a 2018 Hatchback sport and have been wanting to upgrade to a CTR since I bought my car (didn’t buy CTR 2 years ago because the markup was insane). I am now in a dilemma where I don’t know if I should be patient and buy the 2020 CTR or just buy a 2019 at MSRP. Other than being inpatient, I’ve heard the 2020 MSRP is going to be 40k+ so that’s another thing pushing me to buy the 2019 ASAP. How much did you guys pay for your 2019 CTR’s? Should I wait for the 2020? And any more guesses on how much the 2020 will cost?

I just bought my 2019 last month. I pretty much paid sticker price. I made the dealership discount anything they added over sticker. I bought mine not knowing what the 2020 model was going to change. To be honest I would have been upset it the 2020 made some really good upgrades that I felt were worth spending a little more money on. That being said I’m now happy I just got the 2019. I’m having a blast driving it. I love getting on the forums and working out what upgrades I should do in the future. The 2020 model doesn’t add any real value to me personally. I like my Sonic Grey color. If you really dig the boosted blue and the extra stuff added get the 2020. I just don’t think they changed the car enough to me to spend a premium price for the newer model.

Value added to me would have meant more power or more aggressive style change. Maybe all wheel drive would have been cool lol.

if it is different of 2k.. i will wait..
if over 40k... i will simply get 2019 unless you are all over the new blue color.

only thing that I want from 2020 ctr is the 2pcs rotor and it's new suspension setting.
other stuffs like steering wheel, knob, are all replaceable by even better aftermarket parts.
worst add on is the stupid fake engine sound.

FYI don't forget once 2020s hit the lot interest rates will change being more favorable to the 2020. Even though they're both "new" the banks see it differently.

paid a thousand below MSRP. I say get the 19' due to the fact that the 20' are coming and you probably can get a better deal as dealers want to move inventory. There's ppl on here reporting that they've paid invoice.

What does that mean? The interest rate of a 2020 will probably lower lower than a 2019?

I was in the same dilemma. I ended up getting a 19. The 19 I was able to get was less than MSRP in a color I wanted, so I decided to go with it. I have had no regrets other than the color. I thought to myself I can purchase all the bits that came on the 20 if I wanted.

Do all the research you can on the differences between the 19 and 20. If the changes to the 20 appeal to you, might as well wait and get the 20. If you don't care about the changes, there's no real reason to not buy the 19 especially if you get a good deal. Either way you're gonna end up with a car that will not disappoint.

A ton of places still have a mark up on the 2019 but you should be able to get MSRP without too much effort. I think it's fairly likely that the 2020 CTR will be in the ballpark of 39-40k- all of its competitors are about 40k and the CTR smokes the competition. Honda seriously underpriced the CTR in 2017 and they have been slowly correcting that each year.

Your 2019 idea (right when you drive off the lot) is still only worth what a 2019 could sell for. Come Apr-May it will be counted as a 2yr vehicle, regardless of how new you think it is. If you are really intent on acquiring a CTR, just get the 2020 and begin truly anew.

Im in the same boat. Been waiting a year to see the 2020 differences. Not worth the extra money IMO so I'm hoping for the people that are excited about the new model they will trade in their older model and I will be able to pick one up on the cheap

This :agree:. Don't worry about the year so much as opposed to the deal you can get, there were no ground breaking changes so get a CTR and have fun!:thumbsup:

I was going to wait for 2020, but just got the 2019 this weekend for 34k. Cheaper monthly payment and insurance. Plus the main thing I liked on the 2020 is the shift knob, and I can purchase that separately.
