Labor Day has passed, and all those purported “can’t miss” summer savings events on new cars and trucks have ended. But dealers and manufacturers are moving on to their September promotions, and there are still some great offers out there — especially if you don’t need to drive more than 10,000 miles per year and don’t mind handing back your vehicle after two or three years.
Here, then, are five of the best new car lease deals you can find in the US as of September 2019.
Toyota Tacoma – $219/mo.
The Tacoma has at or near the best residual value on the market (though the Jeep Gladiator is gunning for the crown). That can work in your favor for leasing. Toyota has a September lease offer on the base trim SR Tacoma equipped with some broad essentials (double cab version, four-wheel-drive, V6). The lease is for 36 months at $219 per month with $2,999 down. Whatever you do, do not fall in love with your particular truck: Toyota will want more than $25,000 for the three-year-old truck when you’re finished leasing it.
BMW i3 – $299/mo.
The BMW i3 is an aging electric car. It feels dated with avant-garde styling, a 153-mile range and a not-so-ludicrous 170 horsepowwer. But if you want to cut your emissions now while waiting for the EV new car market to grow, the i3 could be compelling. BMW includes a $7,500 lease credit on the i3. For the base model, that works out to $299 per month over 36 months with $3,000 down.
Lexus RX 350 – $399/mo.
Lexus has September lease deals on its most popular model, the midsize RX SUV. This deal will vary slightly by region, but with Lexus throwing in $2,500 in lease cash, you can get an RX 350 AWD for 36 months at $399 per month with $3,999 due at signing.
Acura MDX – $409/mo.
The Acura MDX is a thoroughly anonymous-looking three-row crossover. But it’s among the more compelling ones to drive. Through the end of October, you can lease a SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive) version for $409 per month over 36 months with a $2,590 down payment.
Chrysler Pacifica – $229/mo.
Sometimes, you need to embrace that minivan life. It’s not so bad. Chrysler has a promotion on the Touring L version (the fourth of nine trims) of the Pacifica for September. You can lease one for only $229 per month over 36 months with $2,949 due at signing.
