Slow sales, good performance in the U.S. News Best Cars rankings and significant incentives make these cars and SUVs smart buys this October.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. News & World Report, the global authority in rankings and consumer advice, today unveiled October's list of the Best Cars to Buy Now. To make U.S. News' monthly list, a car has to meet three criteria: declining sales, strong manufacturer incentives and excellent scores in the U.S. News Best Cars rankings.

"When it comes to bad cars, there's no such thing as a good deal," says Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars. "We've combed through the hundreds of car deals available this month to highlight cars that receive good reviews from industry experts and have excellent financing or leasing incentives, so you can feel confident in your purchase."

This month, U.S. News Best Cars has identified eight cars and SUVs that not only offer hefty savings, but are also a pleasure to own.
