2017 Dodge Challenger Lease Still # 1 among Coupes – Five Straight Months
Wow, the LVR on the Challenger rose from just 0.79 in May to 0.99% in June and remains unchanged for July and August. The Dodge Challenger is still the best lease value among all 6 cars that have been featured these past 6 months.
Without the competitive ownership qualification, the Dodge Challenger SXT RWD can be leased for $216.00 per month with $2,499.00 down. This puts the Challenger on top of this month’s best coupe lease deals with an LVR of 0.99% and average payment of $279.42. If you missed out, this is over $60 more than last month. Still, you would be hard-pressed to find something that is as fast, fun to drive, and as good looking as the Dodge Challenger. What was once an uncommonly good lease deal in May, June, and July is still a good deal for August – just not unusually good.
Okay, I realize that a Dodge Challenger is not exactly in the same category as a Mercedes Roadsters, Infiniti Q60, Genesis, or Subaru BRZ. Coupes and tastes in coupes can vary just as much as the people who want to drive fun cars. I guess they are alike in that none of them are really all that practical, but they vary different in performance, specs, luxury, features, and price. Still, they are 2-doors. They are coupes!
The best coupes to Lease this month are ranked from 1 to 7 based on their performance-value ratio. While some might argue that the Dodge Challenger belongs in a group called, Muscle Cars, it still fits the classic definition of a coupe; that is, a two door car with a hard-top. Coupes are generally sportier, two-door versions of sedans. This group of six contenders offers a wide price range from $26,190 to $47,400. It is hard to keep luxury cars like the Mercedes SLK out of the lineup because they are in fact coupes. Both the Challeger R/T and Lexus RC 300 AWD offer excellent lease values in this segment. I realize that the price range of coupes really covers the gamut. Next month, I will include a few of the coupes in the lower-end marketplace from Honda, Nissan, Toyota, etc. Plenty of coupes also offer convertibles. So, it looks as though a new category might be required to cover some of those. Car leasing is not limited to only a few models and designs, thought it might seem that way. Sometimes, you have to look past the popular, featured lease deals from commercial, magazine, radio, and newspaper ADS to see what else is available. I will continue to mix things up from month to month to make sure a wide variety of lease options are available for viewing and comparing.
The Toyota 86 is Back
The 86 has declined this month with a leasing special of $376.08 average payment. Not great, but at least not the worst in the bunch. That honor goes to the Subaru BRZ.
The new Toyota 86 continues to disappoint us with a sub-par lease deal. The 86 is second to last to only the Subaru BRZ. What is with these coupes and when are they going to come up with some more reasonable lease deals.
