This is an unprecedented time to buy a new Subaru Forester, Outback, or Ascent SUV but the window of opportunity will close shortly. Right now, Subaru of America (SOA) is offering exceptionally good deals on financing and incentives on hot new models like the 2020 Subaru Forester, Outback, Ascent, Impreza, and Legacy models.

SOA is giving customers zero percent interest for 63 months and the window is open until April 30, 2020.

Watch how much will it cost you to own a Subaru in the first 5 years of ownership and how the cost jumps between the year 5 to 10. Also, please click to subscribe to Torque News Youtube channel for daily automotive news reports.

Subaru is also offering new car customers a deferment program allowing you to defer payments up to 90 days when you purchase certain vehicles and finance through Subaru Motors Finance. The Camden, N.J. automaker is offering loans and lease options with Chase Bank. What if you have a lease and need to wait on a new car purchase?

Subaru is also giving lease-end extensions to current customers. If your Subaru Motors Finance lease is ending soon, Subaru will automatically extend it. By keeping your current leased Subaru, you can extend the term of the lease for another six months to allow you extra time and flexibility. Subaru says a phone call is not needed to confirm your extension. You will automatically receive a letter or email from Chase with more information about the lease extension. 

Struggling to make your car payment? Here’s where to go for help

Subaru also announced they are offering deferred payments for its current owners. Subaru now has a Payment Deferment Program and you may be eligible to defer payments for up to 90 days. Check with your local Subaru dealer because not all showrooms are open during this time of stay-at-home enacted in many U.S. cities.

If you are ready to buy now, you could save thousands of dollars on a new 2020 Subaru Forester, Outback or Ascent before April 30. You can call Subaru Concierge (1-800-317-6276) and they can help locate a dealer that is still open.

I appreciate the 0% 63 month deal, but some of us are in a quarantine until April 30th which leaves no time for a test drive. Sad.
