, Senior Pricing Analyst - July 3, 2018

Specials from Subaru look almost identical to last month. As before, the most noteworthy deal is a $329/month lease on the all-new Ascent. A generous residual value helps makes it a pretty good deal for a brand-new model.

Financing rates aren't terribly impressive. For example, Outbacks were eligible for 0% APR for 63 months at one point, but now only get 0% for 48 months. There's no sign that this will improve anytime soon.

The Impreza continues to be one of the cheapest cars to lease at just $135/month in places like California. Just be aware that the advertised deal only includes a manual transmission. An automatic adds around $10/month.

Special offers from Subaru vary by region and expire July 31, 2018. Examples listed here are for Los Angeles, but expect to see similar deals 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.
