Although many shoppers have given up on wagons in favor of SUVs, not all drivers have made the switch. If you're among the wagon faithful, you're in luck, because we've listed our favorite wagon deals available this month, highlighting incentives and special offers from a variety of manufacturers.
Acura TSX Sport Wagon
The Acura TSX Sport Wagon offers a more versatile take on the sporty TSX sedan. Three offers are available for drivers looking to get a new TSX Sport Wagon in October. Lease shoppers can choose between two deals. One boasts a low monthly payment, with figures starting from $309 per month for 36 months after $1,999 down at lease signing. The other offers payments from $360 per month for 36 months, but boasts nothing down at signing. Drivers can also finance a TSX at a reduced rate this month, with qualified shoppers getting interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for 60 months.
The Ford C-MAX is a hybrid wagon with five doors and a large interior. In October, the 2013 C-MAX is offered with several incentives. For qualified drivers interested in financing, that means 0 percent interest for up to 48 months or 0.9 percent for 60 months. Cash buyers can get up to $1,000 back. And for lease shoppers, Ford is offering payments from $289 per month for 36 months on a 2013 C-MAX SE -- a good deal even when you factor in a required down payment of nearly $2,800. Buyers looking to pay in full also get a deal, with Ford touting up to $1,000 cash back on all C-MAX models through the end of October.
The Subaru Outback is a midsize wagon with standard all-wheel drive and raised ground clearance.

For drivers looking to lease, Subaru is also offering a good deal this month: a 36-month term with payments from $269 per month after $1,969 down at lease signing.
