Wagon Deals: November 2013
While wagons aren't as common as they once were, a few models are still available. We've listed the top wagon deals available this month for shoppers who want a family hauler but aren't looking for an SUV or a minivan.
The 2013 Ford C-MAX is a hybrid wagon with five doors and a tall roofline. Two versions are offered: a gas-powered hybrid, dubbed simply the C-MAX Hybrid, and a plug-in hybrid, dubbed the C-MAX Energi. Both are offered with strong incentives in November, including 0 percent interest for 48 months, 0.9 percent for 60 months or 1.9 percent for 72 months. Cash buyers can also get a good deal, as Ford is offering $1,000 cash back on all C-MAX models this month -- a figure that climbs to $3,000 cash back for the plug-in C-MAX Energi.
The Subaru Impreza wagon is a 5-door, compact model with standard all-wheel drive. In November, it's available with two special offers: a lease rate and a low-interest deal for shoppers looking to finance. For lease shoppers, Subaru is touting a 36-month term with payments from $159 per month for a 2013 Impreza, or $175 per month for a 2014 model. Both require around $2,000 down at lease signing. For drivers who would rather finance, Subaru is offering interest rates as low as 1.9 percent for a 2013 Impreza or 2.9 percent for a 2014 model.
The Subaru Outback is an all-wheel-drive wagon with raised ground clearance and off-road-oriented styling. It's the most popular wagon in the U.S. Through the end of November, all Outback models offer two incentives: one for lease shoppers and one for qualified drivers looking to finance. For finance customers, Subaru is touting 0 percent interest on all 2013 Outback models -- a deal that jumps to 0.9 percent interest for the 2014 Outback. Shoppers who would rather lease can get a 2014 Outback for 36 months with payments from $269 per month after $1,969 down at lease signing.
The Toyota Venza is part wagon, part crossover. Based on the Toyota Camry, it offers two rows of seats and available all-wheel drive. In November, it's also offered with a few strong incentives. The best deal is on the 2013 Venza, as Toyota is touting 0 percent interest for up to 60 months. For drivers who would prefer a 2014 model, Toyota is offering 0 percent interest for 36 months. The 2014 Venza is also available with a lease deal: $289 per month for 36 months after $2,689 down at lease signing.
The Volvo XC70 is a 5-door wagon with SUV styling, raised ground clearance and optional all-wheel drive. In November, the XC70 is offered with two incentives. The first is a lease deal: Through the end of the month, Volvo is offering the 2014 XC70 for 36 months with payments starting at $469 per month and nothing down at lease signing. For drivers who would rather buy, Volvo is offering two cash-back deals this month: Shoppers can receive $3,000 in allowances for options on a 2013 model or $2,500 on a 2014 model. The allowances essentially function like a cash-back deal, giving drivers optional extras for free.
