Automakers make new special offers on their vehicles on a semi-regular basis. If you need a quality car and are on a budget, paying attention to these special offers is one of the best ways to get a great deal on a car. Keep in mind, these deals will expire before long and not everyone qualifies. Generally, though, dealers are willing to work with you to get you in a car, so if you really take the time to look, you’re bound to find something worthwhile. We’ve rounded up three of the best deals out there right now that you should consider.
The excellent Mazda3 sedan ($17,845 base MSRP) comes with a great deal right now. Mazda is offering 0.0 percent APR for up to 60 months plus $500 APR customer cash. Even without the $500 customer cash, that comes to $296 per month on a 60-month loan period, which is quite a steal for such a good little sedan. Those particular numbers are calculated for a Mazda3 Sport with no added options, but the special offer is available from Mazda on any version of the Mazda3. This specific deal expires February 28, 2017, so if this sounds like a good option, try to spring for it before the month is out.
Honda Civic Sedan
Honda’s Civic sedan ($18,740 base MSRP) is selling like hotcakes and one of the reasons it’s doing so will is that the company offers good deals on the car. Currently, Honda offers 0.9 percent APR on its Civic Sedan. With a 48-month loan term and $2,000 down or a trade in that’s worth at least that much, you can have this 2016 North American Car of the Year for $388 per month. That deal includes the base LX trim level with the automatic CVT transmission. While that version of the car won’t have all the bells and whistles, you can’t argue with the price. If you feel you need more options, you can always upgrade a trim level and still get the special offer from Honda. However, Honda’s special offer on the Civic expires February 28, 2017, so don’t wait too long.
Kia has a pretty sweet deal on its 2017 Soul ($16,100 base MSRP). You can get this little hamster-associated ride for a mere $303 dollars per month if you go with the base option and put $2000 down or have a trade-in worth at least that amount. That’s with a loan term of 48 months. Currently, Kia offers a special 1.9 percent APR and $1,000 in special financing and bonus cash. If you’re a recent college graduate (finished an accredited program in the last 12 months) or a member of the United States military (active or retired) you qualify for an additional $400 dollars off, which would lower the price even further. This offer doesn’t last forever and after February 28, 2017, Kia will be moving on to other deals.
