Sedan Deals: May 2013
Today's 4-door sedans are available in all sizes, from tiny subcompacts to full-size luxury models. We've listed a few of each in our latest story, which highlights sedan deals available in May. Each offer is available throughout the month, giving shoppers an extra reason to snag a new model soon.
The midsize Chevrolet Malibu was recently redesigned for the 2013 model year. Shoppers interested in a Malibu can take advantage of three deals this month. For buyers paying in full, Chevrolet is offering up to $2,000 cash back -- a good deal on a car that starts below $23,000 with shipping. For drivers looking to lease their next car, the Malibu LS is available for 36 months with payments of just $169 per month after $3,109 down at lease signing. And for qualified buyers looking to finance their next car, Chevrolet is offering zero percent interest on the Malibu for up to 60 months.
The all-new Dodge Dart is a compact sedan replacing the brand's Caliber hatchback. In May, shoppers can get an incentive on the Dart whether they're looking to lease, finance or purchase the sedan. For lease shoppers, Dodge is offering a 24-month term with payments from $149 per month. Taking advantage of that deal requires $2,999 down at signing. For qualified buyers looking to finance the sedan, Dodge is offering 1.9 percent interest for 36 months plus $500 cash back. And for buyers looking to pay in full, Dodge is offering up to $750 back on most Dart models -- or $1,250 back on the economical Dart Aero.
The compact Elantra is among Hyundai's smallest sedan models. Through the end of May, it's available with two incentives. The best deal is for lease shoppers interested in a short-term lease. The Elantra is available for up to 24 months with payments starting at just $139 per month. That gives the sedan one of the lowest payments in the car industry -- though getting it requires excellent credit and a $1,699 down payment. The Elantra also offers a good interest rate in May for shoppers looking to finance. Through the end of the month, the sedan is available with zero percent interest for up to 60 months, or 0.9 percent for 72 months.
The Mazda3 is a fuel-efficient compact car with sport-tuned handling. In May, shoppers can get two deals on the small sedan: a low-interest deal and an impressive lease rate. For qualified buyers looking to finance the Mazda3, the sedan is available with zero percent interest for up to 60 months. To sweeten the deal on leftover 2012 models, Mazda is even offering $500 cash back. For drivers who would prefer to lease, Mazda is offering its smallest sedan with payments starting at $149 per month for 36 months. That figure is available after $1,999 down at lease signing.
The Nissan Maxima is a large sedan with a sporty personality thanks to its powerful standard V6. In May, three incentives are available on the Maxima. For qualified shoppers interested in financing the sedan, Nissan is offering zero percent interest for up to 36 months plus up to $500 cash back. For drivers interested in leasing the Maxima, Nissan is offering a 39-month lease term with payments from $309 per month after $2,999 down. And for drivers looking to pay with cash, Nissan is offering up to $2,500 back -- a big number, considering the Maxima's $34,000 base price.
The midsize Toyota Camry is one of the most popular cars in the U.S. Shoppers looking for a good deal on the 2013 Camry can take advantage of two special offers in May. For drivers interested in a lease, Toyota is offering a 36-month deal with payments starting at just $199 per month. That's a pretty good rate -- though it requires $2,598 down at lease signing. For drivers looking to finance a Camry, Toyota has an even better offer. The automaker is touting interest rates as low as zero percent for up to 60 months for qualified buyers.
The Jetta is Volkswagen's smallest sedan. In May, it's available with two incentives. The first is a lease deal on the base-level 2013 Jetta S. Through the end of the month, shoppers can put nothing down and get the sedan for 36 months with payments starting at $199 per month. For drivers who would prefer to finance, Volkswagen is offering the Jetta S with 0.9 percent interest for up to 66 months. Finance shoppers can also get a rare deal this month on the efficient Jetta TDI, which is available with zero percent interest for up to 66 months.
