The Acura TLX is a popular luxury sedan offering front- or all-wheel drive and 4- or 6-cylinder power to appeal to a wide range of car shoppers. In October, Acura is offering several strong incentives on the 2015 TLX designed to entice shoppers who may otherwise lean toward the competition.

BMW 2 Series
The sporty BMW 2 Series has officially replaced the 1 Series in the brand's growing lineup. Offering rear- or all-wheel drive, the 2 Series touts a small backseat but some of the best driving dynamics in its segment. In October, the 2016 2 Series also offers some impressive incentives. For qualified drivers looking to finance, BMW is touting 1.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on all 2 Series models, even the sporty M235i.

Shoppers looking for more performance can opt for the M235i, which starts at $539 per month after $4,500 down at lease signing.
The Cadillac ATS is an entry-level luxury car coming in sedan and sporty coupe varieties. Offering excellent performance and several engine choices, the ATS is a strong rival for established models, such as the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. This month, the ATS is an even stronger rival thanks to several impressive incentives from Cadillac.

The Dodge Dart is a highly competent compact car offering handsome styling, surprisingly sporty driving dynamics, impressive technology and excellent fuel economy. In October, the 2015 Dart is also offered with strong incentives to clear out inventory before 2016 models arrive. The best deal is for drivers looking to pay in full, as certain Dart models are offered with $2,500 to $3,000 cash back, a huge figure for a car whose manufacturer's suggested retail price is less than $25,000. You don't have to pay with cash for a good deal on a Dart in October. The compact sedan is also available to qualified shoppers with interest rates as low as 0 percent for up to 36 months or 2.9 percent for up to 84 months.
The Honda Accord is one of our favorite midsize sedans, largely thanks to its impressive durability, roomy interior and reasonable pricing. In October, pricing is more reasonable than usual thanks to several incentives from Honda. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Honda is offering 0.9 percent interest on all 2015 Accord models for up to 60 months. For shoppers who would rather lease, Honda has two good deals available: A 36-month term with payments from $189 per month after $1,999 down on a base-level Accord LX, or the same term with nothing down and monthly payments as low as $240 per month for 36 months.
The Kia Optima is a handsome midsize sedan boasting a sporty look, a lot of equipment and an excellent warranty. In October, the 2015 Optima is available with some excellent incentives as the automaker starts to make room for an upcoming all-new 2016 Optima on dealership lots. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Kia is touting 0 percent interest for up to 66 months or 1.9 percent for 72 months on all 2015 Optima models. For shoppers who would rather pay with cash, Kia is offering up to $2,000 back. Finally, Kia is touting lease payments from $177 per month for 24 months after $1,999 down on a base-level Optima LX.
The Toyota Avalon is a full-size sedan offering a quiet ride, luxurious appointments, a roomy interior and impressive durability. This month, the 2015 Avalon also offers an excellent deal thanks to a few enticing incentives from Toyota.

Lease shoppers can choose an Avalon with payments from $229 per month for 36 months after $2,999 down at lease signing.
Subaru XV Crosstrek
Subaru's compact XV Crosstrek straddles the border between station wagon and small SUV. On the SUV front, it offers raised ground clearance, SUV-like styling and standard all-wheel drive. The wagon-like XV Crosstrek also shares its platform, body and engine with the compact Subaru Impreza. Regardless of which it is, the 2015 XV Crosstrek is a good deal in October. Subaru is offering the small wagon with 1.49 percent interest for up to 36 months or 0 percent interest if you choose the frugal XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Drivers interested in leasing can also find a good deal, as payments start at $259 per month for 36 months after $2,159 down at lease signing.
