Summer has arrived, and it isn’t just the weather that has heated up. As car dealers and manufacturers sprint toward the finish line of the 2018 model year, the car lease deals are heating up, too. The best car lease deals for this month are eye-catching across a wide range of vehicles. If you are looking for a large vehicle for the annual summer vacation, the deals are there for you. And if you’re seeking a small commuter car, your timing couldn’t be better. July looks like it will be a great month for those desiring a low-cost lease.
The fun-to-drive Honda Civic tops the list
One of the top lease deals is on one of Driving Today’s favorite sedans, the versatile, economical and fun-to-drive Honda Civic. You might think of the Civic as a “small car,” but the current Civic is roomier and more accommodating than you’d guess. So the deal on the Civic LX with automatic transmission is exceptional — $189 per month for 36 months with $1,299 due at signing.
Another lease deal worth taking a long look at is on one of our top-rated small crossovers, the Subaru Crosstrek. As fuel prices continue to creep up nationwide, the Crosstrek offers a winning combination of utility and fuel economy. Now through July 31 you can lease a new 2018 Crosstrek 2.0i for $229 per month for 36 months with no security deposit. An lease initiation fee of $1,999 is due at lease signing.
If you are looking for an accommodating crossover SUV, the best lease deal this month is on the reliable, accommodating Hyundai Santa Fe. Awarded recently for its high build-quality, the substantial Santa Fe three-row SUV is being offered for $269 per month for 36 months with $2,699 due at lease signing.
Hyundai is also offering its leading-edge 2018 Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid sedan for $269 per month with $1,999 due at lease signing. Depending on your commute length, you might only have to buy gasoline once a month.
Another excellent lease deal that continues from June is on the 2018 Nissan Rogue crossover SUV. A worthy competitor to the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V, an all-wheel-drive Rogue can be leased across the country for $199 per month for 36 months with a lease initiation cost of $2,699.
In the market for a full-size pickup truck? Your timing couldn’t be better. One of the best lease deals this month is on the bestselling vehicle in America, the Ford F-150. The 2018 Ford F150 STX SuperCab XL with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine STX SuperCab XL 4×2 is being leased in selected areas for $169 per month for 24 months. There is, however, a hefty $4,069 due at signing.
Another knockout lease deal on a full-size pickup is the offer on the rear-drive 2018 Ram 1500 Express Crew Cab. There is a lot to like about the roomy, versatile crew cab configuration for just $199 per month for 24 months with $3,299 due at lease initiation.
The final winner is a well-respected luxury sedan, the Volvo S60. Yes, a new version is on the way. At the same time we like the current S60, especially when you can get the upscale, sporty T5 Dynamic trim at a lease payment of $285 per month for 36 months with $3,4655 due at signing.
