Worst Cars to Lease Right Now

On this web site, I usually highlight the best deals available, but it's also important to know which models to avoid. That's why this week I compiled advertised lease deals from around the country to find out which vehicles and locations offer the worst "bang for your buck" lease deals.

The 2021 Fiat 500X now stands out as the worst advertised bang for your buck deal in the country this month - $471 per month with zero down on a vehicle with MSRP of $28,440. That's equivalent to getting only $60 worth of MSRP for each dollar you pay per month. The best lease deals will give you more than twice the bang for the buck.

Each lease deal below is calculated with zero down payment 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 that particular region.

If you want good lease deals, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and NADAGuides to quickly get an idea of what you should be paying.
