Smart ForTwo Now Offers Attractive Lease Option

Smart ForTwoDisappointing sales will benefit buyers considering a Smart car, especially if they don't want to buy a ForTwo out of pocket. The company has announced the terms of a new leasing strategy effective this year.

Until the end of February, buyers who qualify for the lease will be able to walk away with a new Smart ForTwo with less than $2,000 in cash up front, and monthly payments of $169.

The Smart ForTwo offers impressive fuel economy: 33 miles per gallon in urban driving and 41 MPG on the highway. If you don't need a back seat and want to save at the pump, it may be the right choice.

If you want room for more than just you and a passenger, however, several hybrid options offer similar economy and a rear seat. Now is a good time to consider a lease on any of the more efficient models because automakers are pushing leases as a way to improve sales.

For example, the Honda Insight is available for a few hundred more at signing, and about $30 per month. Other models have similar terms for buyers. All in all, it's a great time to lease a fuel-sipping vehicle.






3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
