Hatchback Deals: June 2013
Our list of hatchback deals will help you find the right model. We've rounded up incentives and special offers on each of our favorite hatchbacks for shoppers interested in a new car this month. Best of all, we've found offers for shoppers looking to lease, finance or outright buy their next hatchback.
The subcompact Ford Fiesta is available as a 5-door hatchback or a 4-door sedan. In June, Ford has several strong incentives available on the hatchback. For shoppers paying with cash, Ford is offering up to $1,250 back. Drivers looking to finance can get up to $500 cash back, along with interest rates as low as 0 percent for up to 60 months. And while Ford isn't offering any lease deals this month on the Fiesta hatchback, its $179-per-month offer for the Fiesta SE sedan suggests the brand may let the slightly pricier hatchback go for only a few more dollars per month.
The Honda Fit is a 5-door subcompact with impressive fuel economy. In June, it's also available with strong incentives for shoppers leasing or financing. For lease shoppers, Honda offers the Fit with payments as low as $169 per month for 36 months after $1,999 down at lease signing. Drivers who would rather put nothing down also can get a deal, as Honda is offering a 35-month term with payments from $220 per month. But the best offer is probably for qualified drivers financing the Fit, since Honda offers interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 60 months.
Kia Rio 5-Door
The Kia Rio 5-Door is a hatchback version of the brand's subcompact Rio sedan. Through the end of June, it's among the best deals in Kia's lineup for qualified shoppers looking to finance. It's available with interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 36 months, while most Kia models offer 1.9 percent or above. The Rio 5-Door is also available with $500 cash back for loyal Kia drivers or those trading in a competitive model. And Kia is offering $750 cash back for college students and recent graduates.
The Mazda3 5-door is a hatchback version of the popular Mazda3 compact. Roomy and sporty, it's available in June with incentives whether shoppers are leasing, financing or paying with cash. For drivers interested in leasing, Mazda is offering the Mazda3 5-Door for 36 months with payments from $199 per month after $1,999 due at lease signing. For shoppers paying with cash, Mazda offers up to $1,000 back on all Mazda3 models in June. And for qualified drivers financing their Mazda3, the brand offers 0 percent interest in June for up to 60 months. Best of all, that deal can be combined with the brand's offer of up to $1,000 cash back.
The popular Toyota Prius is a 5-door hatchback with a hybrid powertrain that delivers great gas mileage. In June, it's available with two incentives. One is a 36-month lease deal. Though that offer requires a down payment of around $2,600, it boasts monthly payments as low as $229. Qualified shoppers financing a Prius also can get a deal in June. Through the end of the month, the hatchback is available with 0 percent interest for up to 60 months -- an unusually long term for a popular model such as the Prius.
