, Senior Pricing Analyst - February 1, 2018

February deals from Subaru are nearly identical to last month. That's not necessarily a bad thing, especially with specials like 0% APR for 63 months on the popular 2018 Outback. Or, you can lease one starting at just $239/month.

Once again, the 2018 Impreza features an array of Sign & Drive leases. However, prices have gone up by $10 and now start at $195/month. Unfortunately, the deal doesn't include the cost of an automatic, so expect to pay about an extra $10/month.

With Presidents' Day on the way, you'd think better deals would be in store. However, we've practically never seen any sort of holiday bonus like those offered by competitors. Deals you see now are likely the exact same offers you'll see for the holiday.

Special offers from Subaru vary by region and expire February 28, 2018. Deals listed here are for Southern California, but expect to see similar promotions in other parts of the country.

Tips on Subaru Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

Deals from Subaru tend to not feature anywhere near the degree of discounting we see from major brands like Ford and Toyota. The company never advertises cash incentives, why is why you won't see a rebate even at the very end of a model year. Holidays are no better a time to buy than normal since extra incentives are extremely rare.

That's not to say there aren't discounts. You just won't see them advertised. In fact, some models benefit from unadvertised incentives that enable dealers to provide better prices. Since they're forbidden from advertising those prices for fear of hurting the brand (and resale values), you often won't see the best prices until you request a quote and begin negotiating.

Leasing is often a great way to get behind the wheel of a new Subaru. Some models benefit from very attractive Sign & Drive offers that have the added benefit of waiving your first month's payment. However, shoppers should be aware that although Subaru advertises ultra-low payments, they often correspond to less-popular base models.
