2017 Leases That are Cheaper than 2016

December 8, 2016

Common sense would tell you that leasing a 2017 model should be more expensive than a 2016, especially now that dealers are trying to get rid of the 2016 leftovers.

However, a recent study by SwapALease.com found 8 vehicles where the 2017 model was actually cheaper to lease than the 2016. See below for the price differences.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car right now, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see the best deals being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
