Best Bang for Your Buck Lease Deals

This week, I compiled advertised lease deals published on manufacturer's web sites to find out which vehicles and locations offer the best "bang for your buck" (Note: electric vehicles are not included in this list due to federal rebates which prevent a fair comparison - see electric / hybrid lease deals here).

The 2022 Hyundai Kona trim stands out as the best bang for your buck deal in the country - $228 per month with zero down on a vehicle with MSRP of $24,395. That's equivalent to getting a whopping $108 worth of MSRP for each dollar you pay per month.

It's important to note that the best lease deals in general may only be available in certain regions (usually NY or California regions offer the best lease deals). In addition, due to inventory shortages, many dealers are not participating in these manufacturer-backed offers, so it can be difficult to get these deal terms. I have provided a "Local Deals" link where you can quickly get lease deal offers from local dealers (if available).

Each lease deal below is calculated with zero down payment on a typical 36 month lease with 12,000 annual mileage (10K for luxury vehicles) so you can compare apples to apples. Note that payments don't include tax, title, and other fees and the deals may only be available in a particular region.

Anything above 80 in the "Bang for your Buck" column indicates an excellent lease deal for the current market, and many of the deals below meet this threshold.

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).
Select Vehicle to Get Local Pricing

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.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist

Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
