, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 6, 2018

Hyundai continues to offer a generous mix of deals for buying and leasing. The 2018 Sonata leads the way with 0% APR for 60 months plus a $3,000 bonus for Black Friday. 2018 Elantras feature up to $3,000 in discounts when choosing an Eco or Limited trim, with leases on the SE starting at just $169/month.

Before heading to the dealer, be aware that discounts often vary based on trim. For example, the 2019 Santa Fe is eligible for up to $1,500 in savings when choosing a Limited or Ultimate model. Other styles get a relatively unimpressive $750, or half that amount.

Shoppers should also be aware that choosing a 2019 model can have some important benefits. For example, the 2019 Tucson now comes standard with auto emergency braking, a feature that previously cost thousands. Based on our analysis, it's now the most affordable small SUV equipped with that feature.

Offers from Hyundai vary by region and are valid through December 3, 2018. Examples listed here are for California.

UPDATE: Hyundai has announced regional offers for Black Friday. Please see our dedicated coverage for details.

Insider Tips for Hyundai Shoppers

Hyundai reliably offers a large selection of deals, whether it's cashback, low rates or lease incentives. Holidays can also be a nice time to take advantage of modest bonus cash offers worth around $500 on select models.

Expect to see the best discounts on models like the Elantra, Sonata and Santa Fe Sport at any given time. That said, most shoppers may not know that some of the best savings can be had when financing.

Oftentimes, shoppers have to choose between Retail Bonus Cash and low APR. However, with some models Hyundai actually offers a bonus for financing at standard, non-promotional rates. In cases like that, you're actually able to stack both the Retail Bonus with the finance bonus for maximum savings.

Leasing is often appealing, but shoppers should be aware that advertised offers typically assume extra incentives you may not be eligible for. Most commonly, these include so-called conquest bonuses for coming from a competitor. That's fine if those apply to you, but if not you may be in for a shock when you see your price.

Recent college grads should be aware that they may be eligible for the Hyundai College Graduate Program. It features a $400 bonus that can be combined with most other incentives, although you'll have to finance or lease in order to get it.
