Lease Deals Under $250/month

May 31, 2018

For those of you wanting to drive a brand new car without spending a ton of money, I scoured all the current advertised lease deals offered by manufacturers and created a list of 64 deals currently available for under $250 per month - (monthly payment calculated with $0 down payment so you can compare apples to apples). 

Important to note -- these lease deals do not include taxes, registration, and other fees that vary from state to state and may only be available in certain regions. Also, most of these lease deals are on base models. Adding options or choosing higher trims will increase the cost - sometimes by quite a lot.

Also note that these are advertised lease prices. You may be able to negotiate an even better deal on some of these vehicles if you contact several dealers - I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to compare deals among local dealers.

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.
