Best 'Bang for Your Buck' Lease Deals

January 19, 2012

When comparing lease deals, you need to calculate the monthly payments with no money down in order to do a fair comparison.

Some lease deals advertise a low monthly rate, but require a large down payment up front.

It's easy to do the calculation - simply divide the down payment by the number of months in the lease term, and add that to the monthly payment.

For example, a 36 month lease deal for $200/month with $3,600 down is actually a $300/month lease deal if you put $0 down.

The following is a list of the 15 best car lease deals for January. Each one has been calculated with $0 down and ranked by 'best bang for your buck' - meaning we took into account the MSRP of the vehicle.

Vehicle Payment Term
1 2012 Honda Accord LX $250 35
2 2012 Honda CrossTour EX V6 $340 35
3 2012 Cadillac CTS Sedan $399 36
4 2012 Cadillac CTS Coupe $429 36
5 2012 Acura TSX Sedan $350 35
6 2012 Infiniti G25 Sedan $389 39
7 2012 Infiniti G37 Sedan $429 39
8 2012 BMW 328iX Sedan $457 33
9 2012 Honda Civic LX $230 35
10 2012 Acura TL Sedan $420 35
11 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe $479 39
12 2012 Nissan Sentra 2.0 SR $220 39
