Car Lease Deals November 2015The Infiniti Q50 Sedan tops the car lease deals for November, 2015. You can lease the Q50 for 39 months with a $3,499 down payment and $309.00 per month. With no cap reduction at all, you can expect your lease payment to be around $406.00 per month.

Only 35 Car Lease Deals Listed for November

If the number of cars on this month leasing publication seems a little sparse, it’s because there were fewer cars to choose from this month. Both Lexus and Cadillac websites are indicating that there are currently no advertised lease specials at this time and recommending you check with your local dealer. It seems we are in a bit of a dry period right now, perhaps in anticipation of the Holiday Car Shopping season which is nearly upon us.

Great Deals on Volkswagens comes to an End

The great deals on the 2015 Passat, Jetta, and Tiguan models have come to an end as older inventory has been closed out to make room for the new. If you’re in the market for a new car and need it sooner than later, there is no reason to delay your search. There are still some excellent deals, especially from Toyota. Now is the time to get a small-sized SUV for winter. Lease a 2015 Toyota RAV4 LE for around 245.00 per month with nothing down. Or, take a look at the 2015 Honda CR-V LX AWD for just $233.85 per month.

Great Deal on Minivan Lease

One of the most noteworthy lease deals for the month of November is the Honda Odyssey SE minivan which has an MSRP of $35,325.00. Lease the Odyssey SE for around $360.00 with no downpayment. While many are waiting for the holiday bargains, there are some good lease deals to choose from right now that might very well meet your exact needs. See the full car lease ratings below:

Toyota Avalon LeaseThe Toyota Avalon Lease represents the best value in leasing for the month of October, particularly if you are looking for a roomy, powerful, luxurious, yet practical sedan. The only reason the Toyota Avalon lease did not top the lease rankings for September is that I overlooked the 36 month term option. The Toyota Avalon Lease can be acquired with either a 24 month or 36 month lease term. The 36 month lease term is much better because it spreads your monthly cash payment out for 36 months instead of 24, giving you a lower average car payment. The Car Lease Term Comparison has always been too low, in my opinion.  I leased both a Hyundai Veracruz and a Subaru Legacy on 24 month terms about 5 years ago. When the lease term was up, I was not ready to turn in the car. It still smells like a new car!

If you like the Toyota Avalon lease but want something that offers a bit more prestige and performance, it’s hard to top the Infiniti Q50 Hybrid AWD which leases for $359.00 per month with a $3,799 downpayment for 36 months. You can lease the Q50 Hybrid AWD for around $447.00 with absolutely nothing down. There is a lot to like about this car. Here is a very stylish, fully-equipped sedan with 360 horsepower that gets 29MPG city and 36MPG highway. A navigator, heated seats and steering wheel are just a couple in a long list of luxury amenities.

Besides spotting the great deal on the Avalon and Infiniti Q50 AWD Hybrid, not much has changed for leasing in October. The Volkswagen Tiguan is still at the very top of deals, especially for SUV’s. With winter weather around the corner, you might want to take a good look at the Tiguan which leases for $179.00 and $2499.00 down for 36 months putting it neck and neck with the Toyota Avalon for leasing value. The current deal on the Toyota Avalon Lease is $269.00 per month, with $2,268 due at signing (including first month’s payment), for 36 months. That averages out to be $324.53 per month.

The September car lease deals for 2015 are practically a carbon copy of last August. This is not all bad. The Tiguan, pound-for-pound, dollar-for-dollar is still the best lease deal going. If you prefer a practical and affordable sedan, Volkswagen is offering great deals on both the Jetta and Passat. If you prefer something a bit more luxurious, both the Lexus IS250AWD (pictured above) and the Infiniti Q50 are offering great deals.

Car Lease Deals August 2015The car leasing industry is in a bit of a slump for the month of August, meaning some amazing deals should be just around the corner. Out of 42 car lease deals that were rated in July, 27 have not changed, 1 has improved, and 13 of them have actually gotten worse. The 2015 Nissan Murano, which isn’t a particularly good deal anyway, went down from $299 a month to $289 per month with $2,699.00 down. This is an average car payment of $355.67 and an LVR of 1.15%, so it really isn’t anything to get too excited about.  I have been told by a local Honda dealer that some much stronger incentives are going to be available for the month of September. This would make sense as this is usually the time there are lots of current-year models left on the lots for dealers to sell-off and make way for the new, 2016 cars. We will see whether this is true or not in the next 30 days.

Lease Value Trends

I have added a very simple category column to the lease ratings which indicated the lease value trend of each model(LVT). If the lease is better than the prior month, it is indicated with a, B. If it is worse a, W. If it is the same an, S. If there is no data available from the previous month, it will be indicated with a, U.  Since this is a new idea, I’ve chosen and rated 41 of the same models from a month ago just to provide some perspective on how leasing trends look in a rather stable month.

Decent Car Leases Still Available

If you need to turn in your old lease this month, don’t lose heart, there are still some excellent deals depending on whether you need an SUV, family sedan, or luxury sedan. The Volkswagen Tiguan remains a top choice for an Best SUV Lease Deals Ever. The Toyota Camry still represents a top value in family sedans, and the Infiniti Q50 AWD continues to offer the greatest value among lower-end luxury car models. All three of these choices are unchanged from a month ago, making them worth your immediate consideration.

That is why it is important to concentrate on the average car payment rather than the advertised monthly payment. If you’re ever in doubt, refer to my basic car lease calculator or the advanced car lease calculator.
