Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for May 2017
Car manufactuers are always paranoid about losing market share - this is a good opportunity to get deals. Car dealerships are also desperate to get rid of the remaining 2016 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 (FIAT, Chrysler).
2017 models have fully taken over showrooms, which means better deals on the 2016 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.
Volkswagen continues to suffer after being caught lying about their emissions data - you might be able to get incredible deals this month on vehicles that are still allowed for sale. Other 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)
