When it’s time to get a new set of wheels, you really have two options; buy it from a dealership or go to a private seller. And just like everything else in the world, both options come with their pros and cons.

However, buying a car from a dealership comes with a clear advantage. You’ll get great prices for a quality and reliable vehicle. But with so many options out there, making the right decision can be hard. That’s why we have prepared this list of tools which can help in the selection process.

Auto Trader

Auto Trader is the gold standard when it comes to finding used cars in Canada. It is an online platform which boasts of having thousands of listings from both dealers and private sellers.

They also have a helpful little function which allows surfers to compare up to four cars at the same time. That makes it easier for even the most novice car buyer to make a good decision. The best part? Auto Trader does do not charge buyers for using the site.

Canadian Black Book

The Canadian Black Book is a popular car site in Canada. It has a wide variety of used and new car listings and allows buyers to sort them by make, model, and even price. That is particularly helpful for people who know exactly what they are looking for.

They also have a useful “average asking price” function, which allows people to get a rough idea of current car prices. And it’s also free to use for buyers.

Car Cost Canada

Car Cost Canada is a site which connects dealers and buyers. They have comprehensive reviews of popular car models in Canada, along with prices from different dealerships. That makes it a nice place to find the average cost for a particular new car.

However, they charge $30 plus tax to get five invoices. But it’s a small price to pay for such an excellent service.


Unhaggle is another new-car shopping site. It works just like Car Cost Canada, except that they match you to ten dealers in your area, who then go ahead to compete for your money.

To get started, simply sign up and specify the make, model, and features you want in your car and watch the deals fly into your inbox. The site charges $99 plus tax for the premium service which delivers ten detailed reports.

So there you have it, the top four car sites in Canada. They should save you a lot of time and money without compromising on quality, safety, and reliability on your next car purchase. Plus, you get a 30 day (or more) guarantee for used cars and up to 100000 kilometers for new vehicles.
