Cars With the Lowest Lease Payments
Most of the lease deals are advertised with some sort of down payment (which makes the monthly payment seem smaller). However, it's difficult to compare lease deals when each one has a different down payment, so I calculated each one with $0 down, making it an apples to apples comparison.
Please note that "cheapest" lease payment doesn't mean it's the best bang-for-your-buck deal. I just wanted to see which ones were most affordable, and the reality is that most car buyers have a monthly payment in mind when buying or leasing.

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:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect 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.
