Luxury Car Deals: October 2013
Many popular luxury cars are available in October with strong incentives and special offers from automakers. We've listed some of our favorite luxury car deals for shoppers interested in getting the best possible price on a new luxury vehicle.
The Audi A6 is a midsize luxury sedan with available front- or all-wheel drive. In October, it's offered with a few incentives -- especially for shoppers interested in the 240-horsepower 3.0 TDI diesel model. Through the end of the month, shoppers can get up to $1,500 cash back on that trim level. For qualified buyers looking to finance, Audi is also offering a good deal this month: interest rates as low as 1.9 percent for up to 36 months. Interestingly, that deal is offered on the fuel-efficient diesel model only, meaning you'll save money when you buy -- and at the pump.
The full-size Hyundai Equus is a large luxury sedan that competes with flagship models from brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Lexus. In October, drivers can get a good deal on the Equus, whether they're looking to lease or pay with cash. For cash buyers, Hyundai is offering up to $1,000 back on the 2014 Equus. Shoppers who would rather lease get an even better deal. Through the end of the month, qualified drivers can get a 48-month lease with payments starting at $775 per month -- a big number, but far less than lease deals many rivals offer. Best of all, that deal is available with nothing down at lease signing.
The Lexus GS is a midsize luxury sport sedan offered with rear- or all-wheel drive. In October, it's also offered with strong incentives whether shoppers are looking to finance the sedan or lease it. For drivers who want to lease, Lexus is offering an attractive 27-month term on the 2013 GS 350 AWD. That deal requires $3,568 down at lease signing but boasts payments from $469 per month. Qualified drivers looking to finance also get a good deal: Through the end of the month, Lexus is offering all GS models with interest rates as low as 1.9 percent for up to 60 months. It may not be a 0 percent offer, but it's still a good deal since low-interest offers from Lexus are rare.
The all-new Mercedes CLA is an entry-level luxury sedan that breaks tradition with usual Mercedes models by offering front-wheel drive. Although it's new for 2014, the CLA is already available with a strong lease deal to help start sales on a good note. Through the end of the month, drivers interested in a CLA can lease the sedan for 36 months with payments starting at $329 per month. While that deal requires $3,623 down at signing, it's cheaper than the $4,043 down and $349 per month payments on the larger, rear-wheel-drive C250 sedan.
The Volvo S60 is an entry-level luxury sedan with sporty turbocharged engines and available all-wheel drive. In October, drivers can take advantage of several good lease deals on each 2013 S60 trim level. The best deal is on a base-level S60 T5. Through the end of the month, shoppers can get a 24-month lease on that model with payments starting at just $279 per month. While that figure requires $1,879 down at lease signing, it offers up to $3,000 in options allowances. Shoppers who would prefer all-wheel drive can get the same deal, though monthly payments start at $319.
What it means to you: Many great incentives are available on upscale models this month, as we've highlighted in our list of luxury car deals.
