Many shoppers love hatchbacks for their practical, carryall nature. We do, too -- and for those who share our appreciation, we've listed the top hatchback deals available in November. Our list includes special offers and incentives from several automakers so you can get the best deal on a new hatchback this month.
The Chevrolet Sonic is a fuel-efficient subcompact offered as a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. Drivers interested in the hatchback can take advantage of a long list of incentives in November. The best deals are on 2013 models, as Chevrolet is offering 0 percent interest for up to 48 months and up to $1,000 cash back on the 2013 Sonic. But for drivers who would rather have a 2014 Sonic, the model is available with 3.9 percent interest for up to 60 months and up to $500 cash back. Shoppers looking to lease can also get a Sonic with payments from $189 per month for 36 months after $1,999 down at lease signing.
The FIAT 500L is a 5-door hatchback designed to bring FIAT's unique styling to families and those who need a larger vehicle than the regular 500. In November, it's available with two incentives. The first is a lease deal that touts payments from $239 per month for 36 months after $1,999 down at lease signing. But qualified shoppers looking to finance can also get a good deal, as FIAT is offering 0.9 percent interest on all 500L models for up to 36 months. Unfortunately for those paying with cash, FIAT isn't offering any cash-back deals this month.
The Ford Fiesta is a subcompact 5-door hatchback popular for its sporty styling and good gas mileage. In November, it's available with two incentives: one for shoppers paying in full, and the other for drivers looking to finance. For finance shoppers, Ford is offering 0 percent interest for up to 60 months, or 1.9 percent interest for 72 months. For drivers looking to pay in full, Ford is touting cash-back deals of up to $1,000. Ford is also offering up to $500 for any driver who chooses a Fiesta after leasing a competitor's vehicle.
Lexus CT 200h
The Lexus CT 200h is a 5-door luxury hybrid hatchback that returns over 40 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving. Through the end of the month, shoppers interested in a CT 200h can get a leftover 2013 model at a great lease rate: $299 per month. Best of all, that deal is available for an enticing 27 months, meaning you'll be choosing a new car in just over two years. The only catch? You have to put down $2,199 at lease signing -- a big number, but not as high as the down payment required by many luxury cars.
Toyota Prius c
The compact Toyota Prius c is a 5-door hatchback and the smallest model in Toyota's growing Prius lineup. In November, it's offered with two deals: one for lease shoppers, and the other for drivers who would prefer to finance. For those looking to finance, Toyota is offering 0 percent interest on all 2013 Prius c models for up to 36 months. Lease shoppers, meanwhile, can get a 2013 Prius c for up to 36 months with payments from $179 per month. Taking advantage of that deal requires around $2,600 down at lease signing.
What it means to you: Today's top hatchback deals apply to many of our favorite new models throughout the month.
