APRIL AUTO LEASE PAYMENTS DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY FOR MANY LUXURY CAR BRANDS

While Most Luxury Car Lease Payments Decrease Monthly Rates, Select SUVs Greatly Increase Rates 

CINCINNATI, OHIO (April 19, 2021) – Wantalease.com, the nation’s first online car lease marketplace for new lease deals, reports the latest update on new lease offerings for the month of April. Many lease payments are holding steady from March to April. Compact cars, full-size cars and large pickup lease payments all held stead while many luxury car brands decreased their payments. Certain small pickup brands and small SUV brands, on the other hand, increased lease payments.  

This month marks a significant decrease in lease payments for many luxury car brands in recent months. The largest decreases for the month included the Infiniti Q50 with a -10.04% decrease, the BMW 530i with a -6.65% decrease, and the Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC with a -4.31% decrease. The Infiniti Q50 is offered at $329 per month, the BMW 530i is offered at $479 per month, and the Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC is offered at $569 per month. 

The largest lease payment increases included the Toyota RAV4, with a 26.52% increase from March and the Ford Escape with a 19.62% increase. The RAV4 is listed at $289 per month, and the Ford Escape is listed at $373 per month. 

“This was a very interesting month for many luxury car brands as they decreased their lease payments significantly,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Wantalease.com. “It looks like we’re starting to see some payment increases for many vehicle segments that are in high demand and low supply at the dealerships. Despite this, the payments listed on our marketplace remain lower than what people are finding through traditional channels today.” 

Currently, both the Honda Civic and the Ford Focus are priced the lowest of all leases coming in at just $159 per month. The Nissan Sentra leasing rate continues to hold steady from last month and is listed at $169 per month. 

Other significant lease decreases include the Nissan Altima with an 11.96% decrease and the Subaru Legacy with a 5.57% decrease. The Nissan Altima is now offered at $205 per month and the Subaru Legacy is now offered at $199 per month.
