New Car Deals: December 2015
Like most car shoppers, you're probably interested in getting a great deal on your next new car. To help you with that, we've listed some of today's top new car deals and incentives, which are available this month on a wide range of our favorite new models. Most importantly, our list includes lease deals, cash-back offers and special financing rates to ensure there's something available for everyone.
BMW 2 Series
The BMW 2 Series is a sporty compact car that comes in coupe or convertible variants. Although the 2 Series has only been out for about a year, BMW is eager to meet sales targets for 2015 -- and that means you can get some great deals on 2016 2 Series models through the end of December. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to lease, as BMW is offering the base-level 228i with payments from $379 per month for 36 months after around $4,000 down at lease signing. For qualified shoppers looking to finance, BMW also has a good deal available: The automaker is touting 2.89 percent interest for up to 36 months on all 2 Series models.
The Chevrolet Impala is a full-size sedan with a roomy interior, a comfortable ride and a host of luxury touches. In December, the Impala also offers a wide range of incentives designed to appeal to a variety of car shoppers. For qualified shoppers looking to finance, the best deal is on a leftover 2015 Impala, as Chevrolet is offering 0 percent interest for up to 60 months -- a deal that jumps to 3.9 percent if you pick a 2016 model. For drivers who would rather lease, Chevrolet is offering a 2016 Impala LT from $259 per month for 36 months after $2,859 down at lease signing, while shoppers looking to pay with cash can get up to $1,500 back on all 2015 Impala models.
The Ford Mustang is a sleek, sporty rear-wheel-drive performance car offered in coupe or convertible variants. Recently redesigned with a handsome new look, the latest Mustang touts two strong incentives for qualified drivers interested in getting a good deal on a new car. One offer is for drivers looking to finance, as Ford is touting 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months, or 1.9 percent for 48 months on nearly all 2016 Mustang models. Meanwhile, shoppers looking to pay in full can get up to $500 cash back -- a small deal, but a nice one for a recently updated car like the new Mustang.
The subcompact Kia Rio is one of the smallest and least expensive cars on the market. Offered in hatchback or sedan guise, the 2016 Rio is already a pretty good deal -- but through the end of the month, the Rio also touts a few extra incentives to help sweeten the pot even further. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Kia is touting 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on all 2016 Rio models -- or 2.9 percent for up to 60 months. Drivers looking to pay in full can also get a good deal, as Kia is offering up to $500 cash back on the Rio -- not a bad deal for a car that starts below $15,000. Finally, drivers looking to lease can get a Rio can get one with payments from $189 per month for 39 months after $1,999 down at lease signing.
The Mercedes E-Class is a luxurious midsize model that's offered in a wide variety of body styles, including coupe, sedan, convertible and station wagon. The best deals available today are on 2016 E-Class sedan models, as the automaker is touting several incentives. For qualified drivers looking to finance, Mercedes is offering 2.99 percent interest for up to 36 months, 3.99 percent for 48 months or 4.99 percent for 72 months -- good deals for a new luxury car. For shoppers who would rather lease, Mercedes is offering payments as low as $519 per month for 36 months after $5,000 down at lease signing on a 2016 E350 sedan, or $629 per month for 36 months after $4,200 down on a sleek E400 Coupe.
The Subaru Legacy is an excellent midsize sedan that offers attractive pricing, lots of available safety equipment, good fuel economy and standard all-wheel drive. We also like its styling following a recent redesign. And in December, the 2016 Legacy boasts another enticing reason you should consider it: two excellent incentives. The best is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Subaru is touting 1.49 percent interest for up to 36 months. But drivers looking to lease can also get a good deal on the new Legacy, as the sedan boasts a 36-month term with payments from $199 per month after $1,869 down at lease signing.
Although the diesel-powered version of Volkswagen's compact Jetta sedan is no longer on sale, the brand is still offering gas-powered models -- and they're available with some excellent incentives through the end of December. Specifically, Volkswagen is touting a good lease deal on the 2016 Jetta S, which offers a 36-month term and payments from $229 per month with nothing down at lease signing. For qualified shoppers looking to finance, Volkswagen is offering 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on all 2016 Jetta models. Finally, Volkswagen is offering $1,000 cash back for shoppers who choose a new Jetta, or up to $1,500 in loyalty cash back if you currently own a Volkswagen.
The Volvo S60 is a handsome luxury sedan that provides excellent performance, a comfortable ride and -- in Drive-E guise -- impressive fuel economy. In December, the 2016 S60 also offers a few incentives designed to lure shoppers away from rival luxury brands like Audi and Lexus. The best deal is for shoppers looking to lease, as Volvo is offering the base-level Drive-E model with payments from $279 per month for 39 months after $3,179 down at lease signing. But shoppers looking to pay with cash can also get a good deal, as Volvo is touting up to $3,000 in allowances, which functions a lot like a cash-back offer.
