Wantalease.com spotted leasing opportunities that could help franchised dealers finish 2019 on a high note.
Site officials reported the Nissan Sentra is currently priced the lowest of all vehicles, with payments as low as $139 per month. The Ford Focus is not far off with new lease payments sitting at $159 per month, followed by the Honda Civic at $169 per month.
While most vehicle prices have remained steady in December, Wantalease.com noted some dealers have offered lower lease pricing on vehicles of all sizes, mostly in anticipation of December and holiday specials.
The vehicle that saw the largest price drop coming into the month of December is the Nissan Frontier with a decrease of 8.59%. The truck is offered at $271 per month, followed by the Volkswagen Jetta at $229 (down 7.93%), the Lexus RX 350 for $419 per month (down 6.16%) and the Toyota RAV4 at $279 per month (down 5.64%).
“It is clear manufacturers are making a final push to achieve year-end sales targets to close out 2019,” said Scot Hall, executive vice president of Wantalease.com.
“Just as we saw last year, many automakers continue to offer competitive pricing for non-luxury models to enable healthy competition against luxury holiday specials,” Hall added in a news release.
Site officials added the vehicles with the largest increased monthly payment are the Nissan Titan with a 36.87% jump and the Nissan Altima with a 20.23% climb in price. The Nissan Titan is currently offered at $315 per month, while the Nissan Altima is offered for $229.
