2013 Chevrolet Sonic
The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic is a subcompact competitor that can be ordered in either sedan or hatchback body styles. The latter is available in the performance-oriented RS trim, and it also makes up to 30.9 cubic feet of total cargo space available with the rear seats folded forward.
The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic is initially offered with a 138 horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that also produces 125 lb-ft of torque. An upgrade is available in the form of a turbocharged 1.4-liter, four-cylinder mill that maintains 138 horses but boosts torque to 148 lb-ft. Fuel mileage for the turbo engine eclipses that of the base unit, showing as 29-mpg city and 40-mpg highway when matched with a six-speed manual transmission (a six-speed automatic is also available).
There is a financing incentive of 3.9% plus $500 or $1,000 cash back on the 2013 Chevrolet Sonic available until 04/30/2013.
2013 Kia Soul
The 2013 Kia Soul is a funky-looking, squared-off compact crossover that does its best to ply entry-level shoppers with significant value. Roomy on the inside, the Kia Soul doesn't just come with a healthy list of available features but it can also swallow as much as 53 cubic feet of gear.
The 2013 Kia Soul starts out with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood that is good for 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque, but certain models can replace that engine with a 164 horsepower, 2.0-liter motor that is also capable of generating 148 lb-ft of torque. The smaller mill turns in fuel mileage of 25-mpg in city driving and 30-mpg on the highway (only a few mpg better than the more powerful 2.0-liter), and transmission choices for the vehicle include a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
There is a financing incentive of 0.9% plus $500 the 2013 Kia Soul available until 04/30/2013.
2013 Hyundai Azera
The 2013 Hyundai Azera is a full-size premium sedan that doesn't come at a premium price. Designed to offer luxury on a tighter budget than some of its competitors, the Hyundai Azera maximizes comfort and convenience and also features a spacious interior and a soft ride.
The 2013 Hyundai Azera is motivated exclusively by a 3.3-liter V-6 engine that provides 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission handles the shifting duties for the sedan, and fuel mileage is listed at 20-mpg in stop and go driving and 29-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 3.9% plus $750 cash back on the 2013 Hyundai Azera available until 04/30/2013.
2013 Chrysler 300C
The 2013 Chrysler 300C offers full-size sedan performance as well as a higher-than-average quotient of luxury gear. The Chrysler 300C also provides distinctive styling in addition to a rear-wheel drive layout that improves handling for the large car.
The 2013 Chrysler 300C can only be ordered with a 363 horsepower, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine. This motor also produces a hefty 394 lb-ft of torque and it is shifted via a five-speed automatic transmission, helping the sedan achieve impressive acceleration for its size. Fuel economy for the Chrysler shows as 16-mpg in city driving and 25-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $4,000 cash back the 2013 Chrysler 300C available until 04/30/2013.
2013 Jeep Compass
The 2013 Jeep Compass is an inexpensive compact SUV that can be outfitted as either a suburban transporter or an off-road chariot. Selecting the Freedom-Drive II Off-Road Group adds features such as knobby tires, hill descent and start assistance, skid plates, and a low-range four-wheel drive system to the Jeep Compass.
The 2013 Jeep Compass (which can also be had with a less rugged, optional four-wheel drive system) provides a pair of four-cylinder engines as its available drivetrains. The 2.0-liter mill delivers 158 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.4-liter unit ups those figures to 172 horses and 165 lb-ft of twist. A continuously-variable automatic transmission or a five-speed manual can be ordered with either motor, and fuel mileage for the two is essentially identical (22-mpg city, 28-mpg highway for the 2.0-liter).
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $1,500 cash back on the 2013 Jeep Compass available until 04/30/2013.
