Best Bang for Your Buck Lease Deals

November 9, 2017

This week, I compiled advertised lease deals from the manufacturer's web sites to find out which vehicles and locations offer the best "bang for your buck".

The 2017 Fiat 500e in the California region stands out as the best bang for your buck deal in the country - $210 per month with zero down on a vehicle with MSRP of $33,990. That's equivalent to getting $162 worth of MSRP for each dollar you pay per month. . It's important to note that this deal is only available in the California area, other regions may not come close to this figure.

Each lease deal below is calculated with zero down payment so you can compare apples to apples. Note that payments don't include tax, title, and other fees and the deals may only be available in that particular region.

Anything above 100 in the "Bang for your Buck" column indicates an excellent lease deal, and all of the deals below meet this threshold. Keep in mind, you may be able to negotiate even better deals - these are just the advertised terms, some brands such as Ford don't include dealer discounts in the calculations, which would lower the monthly payment even further.

As always, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the lowest lease prices you can get on any of these vehicles in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
