Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for May 2018
Car manufactuers are very competitive when it comes to market share - this is a good opportunity to get deals since every car maker wants to start the year strong. Car dealerships are also desperate to get rid of the remaining leftover inventory as soon as possible. Ford is testing different incentive packages after suffering big sales losses, and many car makers have hidden rebates that result in as much as 28% off MSRP (Hyundai, FIAT, and Chrysler in particular).
2018 models have taken over showrooms, which means better deals on the "leftover" 2017 models.
The average incentive per vehicle is currently around $3,500. There's some great deals and large rebates on popular models such as the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, Kia Forte, Chevrolet Impala, Cadillac ATS, and Chevrolet Malibu.
Brands such as Hyundai, GM, and BMW continue to offer a slew of lease deals and 0% financing.
You can find several vehicles with leases starting at under $300 per month with $0 down payment.
(Note: incentives can vary greatly by region; these figures may not be accurate in your local area. Always verify with your local dealers)
