The Best Cars to Lease if You Want a Great Deal

Best Cars to LeaseWhen it comes to car leasing, it's important to choose a vehicle with a high resale value if you want to maximize savings.

During a lease, the majority of your payment goes toward the depreciation of the vehicle, so it only makes sense to lease a vehicle that retains its value well. Many consumers don't realize how important this is.

Generally speaking, foreign cars tend to have higher residual values than domestics. Cars that are popular with consumers now should remain popular as used vehicles, and thus their residual values should be higher.

Below is a list of 22 vehicles with the best residual values (for model year 2015). These are the cars that make the best candidates for leasing.

  1. Honda Fit
  2. Subaru Impreza
  3. Subaru WRX
  4. Subaru Legacy
  5. Dodge Charger
  6. Lexus RC 350
  7. Lexus GS 350
  8. Lexus LS 460
  9. Chevrolet Camaro V6
  10. Chevrolet Corvette
