Round Up of Affordable Lease Offers on Mid-Price Vehicles

August 21, 2017

One of the best times of the year to lease a new vehicle is during the summer months. During this period, one is typically able to find a number of promotional lease deals from leading automakers that are designed to get buyers onto the lot. Below, we’re going to consider a number of the most attractive and affordable lease offers out there.

As you examine the lease offers we’ve collected, it’s important that you bear a few things in mind. These lease offers apply to standard lease terms, apply to specific trim levels, and can vary significantly depending upon where you live and what dealership you visit. Further, there are a number of additional costs that are not factored into these lease offers as quoted below. The monthly payments do not include sales tax, and the due at signing amounts do not include additional fees (such as those for tax, title and license) that may apply.

2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Although the 2018 version of the Malibu didn’t receive much of an upgrade over the 2017 version, that’s really not a bad thing. The Malibu continues to be one of the top-ranked mid-size sedans, offering a comfortable and spacious interior that makes it an ideal vehicle for smaller families. One thing that families may appreciate is the standard back-seat reminder feature, which alerts parents to check behind them before getting out of the vehicle.

Right now, Chevrolet is offering a promotional lease for the 2018 Malibu LT, which is the mid-tier trim level. This offer is for $3,249 due at signing with payments of $249. Do note, though, that this offer is for a 36-month ultra-low mileage lease. Also, if you are a current Chevrolet lessee, you can take advantage of a lower amount due at signing – $2,749 – if certain other promotions apply in your case.

2017 Chevrolet Impala

If you’re looking for a large sedan, the Impala might offer just what you’re looking for. Even at the base trim level, there are a number of advanced features that one is sure to appreciate. For example, the Impala comes standard with 4G LTE connectivity and can therefore function as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. When you move up to the LT trim level for the Impala, you also get support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

As with the Malibu, Chevrolet is currently offering a promotional 36-month, ultra-low mileage lease for the 2017 Impala LT. This offer is for $3,249 due at signing with payments of $249. (Current Chevrolet lessees can have their amount due at signing reduced to as little as $2,749 if certain other promotions apply.) If you’d like to move up to the current model-year Impala LT, the current offer is $4,019 due at signing with payments of $309. (Current Chevrolet lessees can have their amount due at signing reduced to as little as $3,519 if certain other promotions apply.)

2017 Kia Soul

When it comes to compacts, the Kia Soul is widely considered to be one of if not the very best. In particular, reviewers are quick to point out that the Soul works well as a family vehicle as it provides a spacious and highly adaptable interior. Further, the Soul receives top marks for safety in its class as well as for reliability.

If you’re interested, the current advertised lease offer for the base 2017 Kia Soul is $1,999 due at signing with payments of $179. The exact same offer applies to the electric version, the Soul EV. In California, it may be worth considering the move to the EV, as Kia is able to offer $1,999 due at signing with payments of $159 for the base trim.

2017 Honda Odyssey

Those in the market for a family vehicle should find much and more to love about the Honda Odyssey. It provides an exceptional amount of comfortable space for everyone in the cabin and includes a number of contemporary features that are hard to ignore, even at the base LX trim level. These features include things like stain-resistant upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity and push-button start.

Right now, Honda is advertising a lease deal for the 2017 6-Speed Automatic Odyssey LX. The promotional 36-month lease offer is for $2,499 due at signing with payments of $279. If you’re interested in this offer, there’s one thing to keep in mind. In order to get advanced safety features (such as lane assist and emergency braking), you will have to move up a trim level to the EX.

Searching For More Lease Deals

The above-advertised lease offers are just a small fraction of what’s out there right now. As you consider the deals quoted above and others that you might find, remember the earlier caveats regarding advertised offers. In addition, remember that the deals – as they apply to specific trims – are usually just a good starting out point for negotiation. Ultimately, you’ll want to work with a dealer in order to arrive at lease terms that make sense for your budget and for the specific trim, options and lease mileage that you want.
