June lease deals weren’t all that good and many automakers are carrying over the same deals, so if you’re looking for the best new car lease deals and incentives July 2011, look carefully.
The key is to consider leasing only if it makes sense to you. It could be a great deal if you need to replace your car now and what you want won’t be available for a while, or if you want to get into a more expensive car – since leasing monthly payments are usually less than purchase payments. If you’re looking to get into a new car for less than $200 per month, there are several best new car lease deals and incentives July 2011 that may work for you. The following deal information comes from U.S. News and World Reports’ Best July 2011 Lease Deals.
- 2011 – Hyundai is certainly on a roll, coming out with a slew of redesigned models that have captured consumer attention. One of these is the all-new 2011 Hyundai Elantra compact sedan which the Korean automaker is offering at a lease program of $169 per month for 36 months with $1,699 due at signing. Available through August 1 only, the deal allows well-qualified consumers to have the highly fuel-efficient new Elantra (EPA-estimated fuel economy of 29 mpg city/40 mpg highway) in their driveway for three years. Starting manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 2011 Hyundai Elantra is $14,536 to $19,349.
- 2011 – For just $10 more per month — $179 for 39 months, with $2,999 due at signing – consumers can latch onto the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta S model. Note that this lease deal expires on July 31. The compact Jetta is affordably priced, starting at $15,365 for the base S model. Fuel economy is decent at an EPA-rated 24 mpg city/34 mpg highway, but is quite a bit off from the Hyundai Elantra.
- 2011 – If you fancy a Toyota, check out the $189 per month for 36 months with $1,999 due at signing PLUS an additional $500 cash back on the 2011 Toyota Camry midsize sedan. Note that this lease deal, which expires August 1, does not include hybrid models and may not be available in all areas. With its spacious and comfortable interior, the Camry is tuned for a quiet ride, although it’s definitely not a sporty car. Perhaps best as a comfortable commuter car, the Camry carries a starting price of $20,195 for the base model, up to $26,725 for the uplevel XLE. Fuel economy is 22 mpg city/32-33 mpg highway.
- 2011 – With its sporty handling, distinctive appearance and seating for five, the compact 2011 Mazda CX-7 crossover is perfect for buyers who want the utility of an SUV but the feel of a sporty car. Straddling the line between a compact and a midsize, the CX-7 has limited cargo space and the rear seat is cramped. But if you’re after Mazda’s “Zoom-Zoom” sporty performance in a crossover, you might be interested in the lease deal of $259 per month for 36 months with $2,853 due at signing on the front-wheel drive iSV model. Note that this lease deal expires August 1. Starting price on the entry-level Mazda CX-7i SV is $21,990.
- 2011 Buick Regal – If an upscale midsize sporty car is to your liking, definitely check out the 2011 Buick Regal, now offered with a $259 per month for 39 month lease deal with $1,779 due at signing. This offer applies to Regal CXL models and expires September 6. The 2011 Buick Regal CXL has a starting price of $26,360 and achieves an EPA-estimated 19 mpg city/30 mpg highway from its 182-horsepower 2.0-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine.
