GM LeasingGM Leasing has never been better.  For the month of June, there are 6 cars rated in the top-10: Starting with the Chevrolet Malibu, the new Buick Envision AWD, Chevy Cruze and Buick Regal, Chevrolet has a total of five lease deals with LVRs at or below 1.00% which is considered Excellent or Exceptional based on my online Car Lease Evaluator. The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu can be leased for an average monthly payment of just $206.72 for 39 months. With an MSRP of $24,660, that gives the Malibu an LVR of just 0.84%, one of the best ever. But, it gets even a little better than that for current GM. According to the offer on the Chevrolet Website Lease Deals, Current GM Lessees do not need the $500, reducing the LVR to just 0.79%!

What’s not so Great about Leasing in June?

True to my word from last week, I’ve included a few, over-the-top, ridiculously expensive cars to lease. The most expensive and bottom of the list for value is the 2016 Mercedes Benz S550 4Matic which retails for $121,550 and leases for $1,699.00 per month with $8,993.00 for 36 months.  I will continue to assume that cars such as these have a great deal of negotiating room. If I were in the market to lease such a car, I would set the target payment at a 1.00% LVR which is $1,215.00 per month. Remember, no matter what payment you set your sites on the dealer is going to counter your offer with something much higher, hoping to get you meet him somewhere in between. I would tell the dealer that my top payment for this car is $999.00 per month and let him wiggle his way up to $1,215.00. Anything within $100 of that range would be a great lease deal.

Luxury Auto LeasingLuxury auto leasing deals round-out a list of 44 car lease deals for the month of May. Why have I not featured more luxury auto leasing deals in the past? The truth is that cars in this price range have never scored very well in my Lease Value Ratio ratings. It should be mentioned that the more expensive the car is the more negotiating room there is to get the price and payment where you want them. Car dealers do not want to leave money on the table and luxury car buyers have the money to match their expensive tastes. Still, the best website offers provide a starting point for negotiating an excellent lease deal. Continue reading »

Hyundai Genesis Lease

Hyundai Genesis LeaseThe Hyundai Genesis Lease is the number one deal this month. Though the Genesis is tied for bang-for-the-buck value with the Toyota Rav4 and Infiniti Q50AWD, it represents something new and exciting for the month of April in mid-priced luxury vehicles. This month you can lease the Hyundai Genesis for just $299.00 per month with $2,999 down or for an average payment of $374.00 with nothing down at all. There are plenty of other good lease deals to look at this month:  Continue reading »

Volkswagen Jetta LeaseThe Volkswagen Jetta Lease represents one of the lowest lease payments ever on a quality vehicle. Yet, the Jetta is not even the best of the best in this months car lease deals. I often get asked when is the best time of year to lease a car? If the March lease ratings are any indication, then that time is right now. For the month of March there are a total of 10 cars ranked at or below the 1.00% Lease Value Ratio benchmark, rated as excellent. This doesn’t happen very often.

Chevy continues to offer amazing deals on both the Malibu and Cruze. These vehicles can be leased at $199 and $179 per month respectively with no money due at signing. If there is a drawback to the Chevy lease deals, it is the 24 month lease term which I think is simply too short. Still, it shouldn’t be a problem to get the 24-month term upgraded to 36 at a slightly higher payment. Still, despite the great offers on Chevy’s this month I decided to feature the Volkswagen Jetta lease for a couple of reasons:

Volkswagen Jetta Lease Details

Unlike the Chevy, Volkswagen is offering the Jetta out of the gates for 36 months which is the sweet spot for lease terms. The $1,999 suggested down payment means the average car payment comes out to $190.67 per month. Without the down payment (recommended), you should be able to get into the Jetta for around $191.00 per month. The other great deal being offered by Volkswagen ins on the Tiguan 2.0. The Tiguan can be leased for just $179.00 a month with $2499 down or for around $244.00 with no down payment at all.

More Great Lease Deals

Infiniti, Lexus, Nissan, Toyota, Hyundai, and Toyota round out this month’s top-10.

Good News for Audi Leasing Fans

For the first time in many months, Audi finally has some come up with some decent leasing deals. Currently, you can lease the Audi A4 sedan, retailing at $40,325 for $399.00 a month with only $1,194.00 due at signing. This puts the Audi ahead of anything Mercedes and BMW is offering right now.
