We love hatchbacks for their impressive practicality, excellent fuel economy and reasonable pricing. That last benefit is especially true this month, as shown by our list of hatchback deals. Our roundup includes each of the best offers and incentives available today on a wide range of new models.
The Chevrolet Sonic is the larger of two subcompact Chevrolet models that deliver bold styling and excellent gas mileage. In April, the Sonic also delivers strong incentives. For drivers who don't mind a leftover 2013 model, the automaker is offering up to $1,500 cash back, or for qualified shoppers interested in financing their next car, 0 percent interest for up to 60 months. Those who would prefer a 2014 model can get 3.9 percent interest for up to 60 months, or lease rates starting at $189 per month for 36 months after $2,169 down on a mid-level Sonic LT.
The tiny FIAT 500 combines unique styling with excellent fuel economy, and it does it without breaking the bank. That's especially true in April, as the 2014 FIAT 500 is offered with incentives for drivers looking to lease, finance or pay with cash. The best deal is for shoppers looking to pay in full, as FIAT is offering up to $1,500 cash back on any 2014 500 model, a good deal considering the car's affordable base price. Also available is a low-interest offer that boasts 0 percent interest for up to 60 months. Finally, shoppers looking to lease a 500 can get payments from $199 per month for 36 months after $1,499 down at lease signing.
The Ford Fiesta is a popular subcompact known for its handsome styling and a long list of cutting-edge technology. In April, it's offered with several incentives for drivers interested in a good deal on a new hatchback. The best offer is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Ford is touting 0 percent interest for up to 60 months, a deal that also includes $500 cash back. Meanwhile, drivers looking to pay in full can get up to $1,500 cash back through the end of the month.
It's hard to know whether to call the Subaru Impreza a hatchback or a wagon. Regardless of definition, the compact car offers 4-cylinder power, standard all-wheel drive and a reputation for durability. Through the end of April, it's also available with several incentives. The best deal is for lease shoppers, as Subaru is touting a 36-month lease term with $1,959 down and payments starting at an affordable $159 per month. But qualified drivers looking to finance also get a good deal, as Subaru is offering 0.9 percent interest for up to 36 months on all 2014 Impreza models.
The Volkswagen Golf offers excellent gas mileage and 2- or 4-door body styles. Through the end of April, it also offers several incentives designed to entice shoppers interested in a good deal on a practical compact car. The best incentive is for qualified shoppers looking to finance their next VW, as Volkswagen is offering 0.9 percent interest for up to 60 months on all 2014 Golf models, a deal that even comes with a $1,000 gas card. But lease shoppers can get a good deal too, as VW is offering two 36-month leases with down payments from $2,349. One is for a base-level Golf, which boasts payments from $219 per month, while the other is for the fuel-efficient Golf TDI. That model can be had with payments from $309 per month.
