Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for October 2018

October 2018 Car DealsThis October there's still an oversupply of vehicles on dealer lots due to an increase in production and stagnation in sales - especially for sedans. This fall season offers a great opportunity for deals, especially on leftover 2018 models. Also, considering the fact that a tarrif conflict with China may see new car prices increase drastically starting next year, you should really think about closing a deal before end of this year. Some manufacturers are offering bigger discounts to move them off the lots and it looks like this October may be a great time to get a fantastic deal or lease.

Car manufactuers are very competitive when it comes to market share - this is a good opportunity to get deals since every car maker wants to make the second half of the year strong. Car dealerships are also desperate to get rid of the remaining leftover inventory as soon as possible. Ford is testing different incentive packages after suffering big sales losses, and many car makers have hidden rebates that result in as much as 28% off MSRP (Hyundai, FIAT, and Chrysler in particular).

2019 models have started hitting showrooms, which means better deals on the 2018 models still remaining.

The average incentive per vehicle is currently around $3,500. There's some great deals and large rebates on popular models such as the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Kia Forte, Chevrolet Impala, Cadillac ATS, and Chevrolet Malibu.

Brands such as Hyundai, GM, and BMW continue to offer a slew of lease deals and 0% financing.

You can find several vehicles with leases starting at under $300 per month with $0 down payment.

(Note: incentives can vary greatly by region; these figures may not be accurate in your local area. Always verify with your local dealers)
