Best Car Leases Under $200 – 2017-2018 Models

best car leasesThere are currently a surprising number of good car lease deals for less than $200 a month being offered during November 2017 by car companies and their dealers.

The good news is that the number of cheap lease deals has remained generally the same over the last few months, and promises to remain so, or become greater.

These are special limited-time lease offers with low payments of $199 or less that are based on discounted prices (lease cap cost), low finance rates (lease money factor), and high lease-end residual values. Most require a down payment, first month’s payment, and any official fees at time of lease signing.

There is no other way to get a brand new car for less than two hundred dollars a month than through these special manufacturer-offered lease deals. 

All the leases we list below are for brand new 2017 and 2018 vehicles, although usually only for a few models and only one style of each model. The deals also are good only for a limited time. Nearly all are for 24, 36, or 39 month terms and typically allow 1000 miles per month, although a few allow more or less. In some cases, there are additional loyalty bonuses and/or competitive trade-in bonuses that could lower the listed monthly payment. As you may already know, a low lease payment doesn’t necessarily make the lease a great deal. Some deals are better than others.

However, all the leases listed below are special promotional limited-time lease deals that are well worth your consideration.

In most cases, you would not be able to bargain with a dealer to get the same deal independently of the promotional offer. All the listed lease deals are rated at least Good or Excellent by LeaseGuide.com and are generally better deals than customers could negotiate for themselves.

Be reminded that these car lease deals may vary or not be offered in some regions of the country. Check with your local dealer for details. Also know that there are many leases not listed here that have payments slightly higher than $200/month. With a small increase in down payment (cap cost reduction), it’s easy to get a lower monthly payment. Similarly, other leases not listed have relatively high payments but require no down payment. If you can afford a substantial down payment, you can create a much lower monthly payment, possibly less than $200.

Don’t See the Deal You Want?

You might not find a special lease deal on the exact car you want. So what to do? Since PRICE is the most important factor in getting a good lease deal, you can shop around for the best prices on your car, on which to base your lease. However, the fastest, easiest, and most convenient way to do that is by using an online car pricing service such as Edmunds.com. See prices from multiple dealers who are competing for your business. When you see a deal you like, go down and sign papers to complete the deal and drive your car home that day.

Know Your Credit Score

You may know, of course, that these special deals are only made available to customers with good credit. Customers with low credit scores will not qualify and will pay higher rates.

It’s good advice to always know your latest FICO credit score.

Summary

Car leases for $199 a month or less make for some very affordable deals. Fortunately, we find that car companies are offering such deals in greater numbers on more and more models. We think this will be a growing trend in 2017. Stay tuned. Whether you lease or buy, you should look for the lowest price on the car you want. We recommend Edmunds.com because they give you prices from multiple dealers and then show you the best  low price deal that includes any rebates and incentives that might be available at the time.
