Here are the lease deals currently listed on their manufacturer's websites at or near $199 a month. While all were featured as of March 4, 2016, some aren't available in all regions of the United States. For comparison's sake, we've calculated the total cost of each lease to completion and further calculated what each costs per mile, assuming full utilization of the mileage allowance. Watch out, however, for additional charges like unaccounted acquisition and lease-end disposition fees. For more detailed pricing, check out our Price Promise® tool.
Not all leases are built exactly the same. Some leases ask for more money up front but have lower monthly payments. Some are the opposite; they entice you with a very low drive-off amount but have slightly higher monthly payments. Try to find a lease that strikes a balance among the miles you drive, a low monthly payment and low drive-off fees. Always add up the entire cost of the lease and compare those numbers before deciding. If all this needs clarification or you need to bounce ideas off someone who knows what's going on, don't hesitate to reach out to the Edmunds.com Live Help team for free assistance.
These premium deals are generally available only to customers with sterling credit ratings. There may be other programs for less stellar credit cases. And all lessees should remember that these monthly payments do not include sales tax and other fees.
There are subtleties to any and every lease. And tailoring a lease before you sign it is the single best way to ensure you'll be happy as long as you're in it — and on your way out of it. But these heavily advertised leases with their discounted factory financing and aggressive pricing are a good starting point.
