There are 61 car lease deals ranked and rated for the month of  January.  The entire ratings are listed below. The Kia Soul EV is still the winner for the 6th month in a row, but it’s going to be hard to beat an electric vehicle due to the enormous government rebates.

Of the 61 lease deals rated this month, there have been some changes mostly due to the change in MSRP of the new, 2018 models.

Current Leasing News

Electric Cars give you the best subvented lease deals ever. If all things were equal (which they are not with electric cars), the Kia Soul EV is the winner month after month.  The other great deal this month for a non-electric vehical is not exactly a car, but a truck lease deal. As regular, practical cars go, Toyota and Honda are, as usual, near the top of the heap. For luxury, you can’t go wrong with Infinit.

With the Holidays here,  there is a good lineup of car leases. Of the top-20 this month, 17 cars are under 1.00% LVR. January (New Years) is another important month for  car incentives and big savings, so it could just be that we’re a month away from seeing some really good lease deals for late summer and early fall as the 2018 models continue arriving on dealer lots.

One great car to keep an eye for the upcoming winter months is the Volkswagen Atlas. The Atlas represents an in-between model of the Tiguan and Touareg. What seems to really set the Atlas apart is its updated technology. For instance, one really cool thing about the Atlas is its high-resolution Digital Cockpit and Wideview Map. This technology is similar to what I have seen on much more expensive SUVs such as the Audi Q70. The Atlas retails for around $34,000.  For a newly introduced model, the Atlas lease is not bad. In fact, it is head and shoulders better than the Mazda CX-9 FWD with an LVR of 1.22% vs. 1.41%. New models are normally not conducive to the best lease deals. Keep your eyes open the rest of this summer as new models arrive and always ask your dealer for a better deal than the advertised web offers.

Zero Down Lease Deals

If you’ve read my article about Average Car Payment, then you already know what the zero down lease deals are. Virtually any car can be leased with 0 down payment, but the payment will look higher than the advertised lease specials you see online and in your newsprint ads. Most dealers and car websites advertise what looks like a low, monthly payment just to garner your interest and enthusiasm. Then, you will notice the fine print at the bottom says something like, $1,999 due at signing. To truly appreciate your effective monthly payment, you have to divide the lease term into the down payment and add that to the advertised monthly payment. The amount due at signing is what is know as your capitalized cost reduction.  0 down lease deals are simply another way of making your car payment look lower. One way or the other, you’re going to pay for it.

Fourth of July Sales

Fourth of July is done gone and a mile away, but sometimes it pays to look at the specials and compare. July 4th is a big day for car dealers. http://monthlycarlease.com/2012/01/subvented-lease/ above and beyond the advertised specials for June can be found at your local dealer. Getting a bang-up-deal on the Fourth means doing a little research first. My car leasing guide will give you a thorough take on how to lease cars and whether or not leasing is right for you.

There are 100 Car Deals Published for October

What does < = > Mean?

Car Leasing Fans, I’ve modified the symbols slightly for comparing cars with last month. If a car has a < next to it, it means the deal is better than last month. A > means the deal is not as good. The = means the deal is unchanged from a month ago. This gives you a quick way to compare the current deal with the previous month as well as to keep track of payment trends on the model you are most interested in.

More Useful Ways to get the best Car Lease Deal

CarsDirect provides lease deals every month from the state of California which are often more competitive than in other states, giving you a good starting place to negotiate your lease.
