Why CarGurus?

With a technology foundation designed to make car shopping better for both sellers and buyers, CarGurus partners with dealers to deliver informed, ready-to-buy shoppers that can drive results. We use algorithms and market data analysis to help millions of automotive shoppers search for cars and quickly identify the best deals from top-rated dealers in their local area.

Founded in 2006 by Langley Steinert, co-founder of TripAdvisor, CarGurus became an industry leader in the US by introducing new levels of transparency and efficiency to the car research and shopping experience. In 2015, we launched our Canadian site and today we are the fastest growing car shopping site in the country.

As more consumers turn to online tools to simplify the complex process of buying a car, we arm them with the essential pricing guidance and dealership ratings they need to make informed decisions. The result is that our leads and connections are prepared, serious, and ready to buy.
