End of Year vs Early Year lease


I am curious as if I should rush into getting a lease before advertised 1/4/2016 dates for specials or would it be the same if I leased mid January/end of January?


Hi there,

Deals are typically the best at the end of the year, especially for luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Lexus. The first two brands, in particular, try to beat each other in U.S. sales each year, so the discounts are most aggressive in December.

For mainstream brands like Toyota and Honda, there will likely be less of a difference. There are other factors, too. For example, if it’s a brand new model that was just released (e.g., Mercedes GLC or 2016 RAV4), it might make sense to wait a few months.
