Hyundai Offers $209/month Lease on the 2011 Hyundai Sonata
The return to leasing for the first time in several years comes as Hyundai executives admit that the availability of leasing for the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord have hurt sales for the Sonata.
The new program is expected to extend through the rest of 2010, and will also feature the new Tucson crossover. Available at $239 monthly, the Tucson will join the Genesis sports car, Equus sedan and the Elantra subcompact in what's shaping up to be a full-on press to offer leasing and improve sales figures.
Buyers looking to lease may also be enticed by cash-back incentives in addition to the Hyundai model's lease terms.
The new Sonata will begin arriving at dealerships beginning in February.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
