Best New Car Incentives, Lease Deals for August 2020
However, many car makers have restarted full production, so they're a little worried about inventory piling up, which means August could be a decent month for deals.
Currently, there are over 1 million lease returns that are due in the next couple of months, so there is definitely going to be some who need a new ride, but even if that's the case for you, it's possible you can get deferrals through your leasing company to either extend your lease or perhaps even get a few free months added to it.
We haven't yet started seeing huge discounts or incentives, but most manufacturers are now offering payment deferrals, along with 0% financing - some up to 84 months PLUS cash back - although some of these have been reduced recently. Many have also introduced loyalty bonuses, so if you do have a lease return coming up, this could put an extra $1,000 to $2,000 in your pocket.
My advice right now: If you don't need a new car anytime soon and have the luxury of waiting, then wait until this fall. We may see some sort of government stimulus specifically for car buyers, or increases in manufacturer incentives once we start getting back into a more normal pace of production and as new car inventory starts piling up. I think consumers will be slow to get back to spending, even when we are all back to work. I hope you and your family stay safe during this difficult time.
(Note: incentives can vary greatly by region; these figures may not be accurate in your local area. Always verify with your local dealers)
