Jeep Cherokee LTD Lease DealIf you lease cars regularly, it really pays off to keep a careful watch on the manufacturer’s listed special offers. You will notice varying trends from state to state, and from car maker to car maker. This month, a few of the advertised specials from last month remained the same while others car makers either raised their monthly payment or increased the cap reduction. If you saw an offer that enticed you, but you weren’t quite ready to buy until it was too late, bring this history up with the dealer before you negotiate.

One lease deal that hasn’t changed is the Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T which was last month’s top lease deal. Overall, small to mid-sized SUV lease offers continue to improve significantly. Recent research shows that people are buying larger vehicles again, including SUVs. With that said, it is still rather surprising and unusual to see 3 of the top-5 lease offers as SUV’s.

Edging out the Tiguan this month is an excellent lease deal from Jeep. You can lease a Jeep Cherokee LTD 4×4, well-equipped for just $299.00 a month and only $2,159.00 down. As Lease Value Ratios go, this one comes in at an outstanding 0.89%. Take a good look at the specs and features on the Jeep Cherokee LTD 4×4. It is an impressive SUV for the money. Jeep has come a long way since leasing became popular again 5 years ago. As you may notice from the website’s build and price calculator, this vehicle normally leases for over $407.00. It is rare to find an SUV equipped this well for an average car payment under $300.00.

Hyundai Elantra LeaseTiguan Lease Remains Unchanged for March

If you missed out on the terrific Volkswagen Tiguan SUV lease from last month, you have nothing to worry about. You can still lease the Volkswagen Tiguan for an average car payment of $243.44 for 36 months with nothing down. In fact, the Tiguan is still at the very top of the car lease deals for March due to it’s ultra-low, 0.90% Lease Value Ratio. Even with winter on it’s way out, it is good to see so many SUV’s with excellent leasing rates. The Acura RDX, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Nissan Rogue, Chevrolet Equinox, and Toyota RAV4 all have LVRs of 1.10 or below.  Don’t be fooled by the spring weather, there has never been a better time to upgrade, buy or lease an SUV.

Hyundai Leasing Keeps Getting Better

When the new Hyundai models came out a couple of years ago, it became rather expensive to lease a Hyundai. Since many of the models such as the Elantra, Accent, and Sonata are so affordable it made more sense to buy them. That is no longer necessarily the case. As expected, the newer models just need some time to establish their resale value before higher residual values eventually make it possible to find excellent subvented lease deals.  The Hyundai Elantra has become an exceptional car lease deal. For the month of March, you can get into a brand new Elantra for just $159.00 a month with a $999.00 down payment. With no cap-reduction at all, you should be able to lease the Elantra for around $182.00 a month.

2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lease Offer

One of the other newcomers in exceptional lease deals happens to be the 2015 Grand Cherokee SUV. You can currently lease a Grand Cherokee for $299..00 a moth with $2,389.00 due at signing or for around $357.00 with nothing down at all. The Lease Value Ratio of the Grand Cherokee is just 1.03% which is exceptional for any SUV, especially Jeep which typically doesn’t offer the best in lease values.  There are quite a few other lease deals worth looking at this month. See all 41 Car Lease Ratings …

Volkswagen Tiguan Lease DealThe Volkswagen Tiguan Tops the List of Outstanding SUV Lease Offers

February car lease deals feature a strong showing for SUVs. If you’re in the market for an SUV, you have three, top-10 choices: The Honda Pilot, the Acura RDX,  Or the 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0T which is at the top of the list.  Today, you can lease the Tiguan for just $179.00 a month for 36 months with a cap-reduction of $2,499.00. With no cap-reduction at all, you should be able to lease the Tiguan for just $243.44 a month. This is a quality SUV at an all-time low, lease-value-ration of just 0.90%.


Infiniti Q50 AWD Outstanding Lease Offer

If you like the All Wheel Drive of an SUV, but prefer driving a sedan, take a look at the powerful, luxurious, yet sporty Infiniti Q50AWD. The Q50 can be leased for just $309.00 month with a $2,399.00 cap-reduction, or $388.23 per month with nothing down and a lease value ratio of 0.91%. Infiniti, as usual makes a very strong showing in the lease ratings for this month. There is one small concern and that is the 39 month lease term. If you live in a state where you pay yearly registration fees, make sure you ask your dealer about getting that switched to a 36 month term.

Lowest Average Car Payment

If you’re goal is to get the lowest average car payment possible, the Hyundai Elantra offers an exceptional value. Lease the 2015 Elantra for just $159.00 a month with nothing down or for $196.22 a month with a $1,499.00 Cap Reduction. This is a considerable improvement over the Elantra lease in month’s past.

What’s not so Hot in Leasing?

Cadillac leasing, especially on the CTS is not what it used to be. In months past (Look at Last Year), Cadillac often topped the list for excellent lease values. With the introduction of new models, Cadillac has yet to establish high enough residual values to offer highly competitive lease deals just yet. If you’re a Cadillac fan, and enjoy leasing them, just be patient. Things can and will change for the better. Don’t forget to always ask your dealer for a better deal!
