• Mar 23, 2012
March is turning out to be the best month for car sales and leasing since 2007. If you are like a lot of consumers, you are finally getting off the couch and into a new car, SUV or truck. Surveys show consumers are showing more confidence in the economy, and shopping sites like AOL Autos for their new ride.

For those of you looking to lease, March 2012 has some very good options. AOL Best Lease Deals breakout has the absolute best deal for every category of vehicle. Popular SUVs like the Hyundai Tucson, Honda CR-V and Volkswagen Tiguan can be had for low monthly payments and/or very little down. Just in time for some of the highest gas prices we've seen in a while, smaller, fuel efficient cars, such as the Mazda3, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent and the Honda Civic Hybrid are also enjoying excellent leasing terms.

Of course, these are just a few options. Click below to see our complete list of the best lease deals of the month.

> In Pictures: 15 Great March Lease Deals

According to automotive buying expert Gary Hoffman, lease deals can go down because the residual values of the vehicles improve. But most of the time, it's because the companies are subsidizing the residual values at the transaction to lower the lease payments we have to make. As companies increase their incentive spending on the cars we buy, they also shift that money into lease deals. And that's what is happening right now.

You better hurry, though, as many of these great deals are set to expire soon. And if you prefer to buy and not lease, then make sure to check out our great New Car Shopping Tools.

This Month's Editor's Pick: Honda CR-V

It seems as though Honda didn't want to mess with a good thing when they rolled out the redesigned 2012 CR-V last fall. Though the 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine is all-new, most of the changes seem quite modest when compared to other redesigned vehicles in the segment (think Ford Escape).

Honda has reason for not making too many drastic changes: The CR-V is already a winning formula. It is almost always the best selling crossover each month (it was the seventh best selling vehicle overall in the country last year) and has a very loyal following of drivers, especially on the coasts. Add in the fact that it comes with Honda reliability and solid gas mileage and it's easy to see why the automaker is sticking to the formula.

A few other new features include an Easy-Fold 60/40 split rear seatback, a full color Multi Information Display and Bluetooth wireless connectivity for phone/audio. Additionally, Motion-Adaptive electric power-assist steering and an Eco Assist system debut, Hill Start Assist is now standard, and a new Real Time AWD (Intelligent Control System) replaces the previous generation's four-wheel drive model.

All in all, the CR-V is one of the best crossovers money can buy and, given its immense popularity, deals are somewhat hard to come by.

Right now, however, you can score a lease on a 2012 Honda CR-V for $239 a month for 36 months with $2,799 due at signing.

      Purplechubby you are obviously one of the brainwashed union members. Why do you think they are moving overseas? Because unions have driven wages too high to compete and jobs are lost thanks to unions. Unions have outlasted their usefulness and if you could see past your ignorance you would see the only winners in unions are the union leadership not the members.

      My 1953 Chevy 4 door 235/ 6 cylinder 3 speed stick shift got 25 MPG.That was 59 years ago, and it didn't cost $ 25,000 to do it. So someone tell why are we better today than back then. I forgot to mention, those cars were made with medal not plastice. Onec again the GOVERMENT has proven they are idiots.

      I rented for one week the new Jeep Grand Cherokeek with the new 3.6 V-6 engine. It had rear wheel drive and not the 4WD. Handled great, more like a sports car, but ofcourse with the great off road clearance. Performance was also great, and the mileage excellent. More than five hundred mile range in mostly freeway, some city and a little highway driving. Also very comfy and superb satellite radio. Chrysler LLC has a winner, so ofcourse the other low-ball companies such as Toyota, Honda, GM, and Ford will send their spies in to try to trash at least some of it. The Chrysler Cirrus had much better performance AND GAS MILEAGE than the Taurus, and was hell and beyond safer than the garbage Accord, but the truth got told only once, when it was Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1995. MOPARS UNITE!!!!!

        What about the mileage penalty,does that take the fun out of it.?
          • 3 Years Ago
          If you need an easy to park city cruiser, the new Fiat 500 (new to the USA) is almost as small as the super cute, but somewhat impractical on the Interstates-- Smart Car. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is an idiot car in NYC unless used as valet by major hotels. Buy what you need and is economically practical for you. People who live in downtown DC really, usually, may not need a car. The Black Cougar Elite of Wash. DC have known for years that white people who live in the city no longer need a car. Wow.

      I can not stand the constant barrage of so called "good" vehicles. There exists the tech with in the auto industry to deliver very high mileage vehicles like 80mpg. But the auto makers all have their hands in the oil and aren't ready to let go. You can save everyday by using SaveCreatively.

      2839 down a good deal? For you maybe, not for ave americans

      I got a 2010 Cobalt in August, and yea the payment is higher than the Hyundai, but I really like the car. I usually bought Ford, but the new Focus was a little too pricey for my budget, and the 2011 and older models just look too boxy. I like the looks of the new Focus, but just didn't want to spend that much for it. This Chevy Cobalt has most of the options the Focus has, it was priced just right for my budget. I don't think I can buy a foreign car, not that they're bad, but I live in an area that has American car factories.
