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.

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.

      I just cannot bring myself to buy imported cars; it is bad enough to see Ford fitting Chinese transmissions to the Mustang. Call it narrow minded, chauvinistic or plain cussed, it makes no difference. While American workers have already endured seeing their jobs shipped to cheap labor nations, I will resist buying anything that does not have "Made in the USA" on it. No matter how good these products are touted to be. Recently purchasing a new 2012 Cadillac SRX, I think our guys in Detroit are putting some very good cars out of the factory gates, equally as good as any coming from the far East.

      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.

      Have you ever tried one????? I can pass you and the gas station and yes there's plenty of leg room for a 6' plus person.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Well yea aa 6 foot tall person can get into one, but if it ran up against a F-250, that 6 foot person would easily become 2 three foot pieces of a person.

        Stupid car, costs 2-3 times more than a chevy cobalt/Cruze and gets only 2-3 MPG better plus holds 3 less people and way less trunk space.
          • 3 Years Ago
          Ah, you make the same CLAIMS again about the Smart costing 2 to 3 times MORE then a Cruze. Do I need to point out AGAIN that a new Cruze, cheapest model is $4000 MORE then a new Smart, cheapest model? A Smart isn't my choice for a car at all (although not fully sure a Cruze is either, but I digress) but if I'm going to dislike a car make or model, I'll at least use facts and if forming opinions, base those on personal experience. Not either outright lie, or if you are doing so, pull some figure like cost of a new Smart compared to cost of a used Cobalt/Cruze. :P I can find a used Mercedes for under $10,000 if I look hard enough. Should I try to claim that a Mercedes is even cheaper then a Smart or a Chevy Cruze based on that? :P

      I've been mostly a Mercedes guy, but I also have had two Lexus sedans, and they both have been wonderful. Comfort, luxury, great sound system, never a problem. I think Lexus will be my car of choice. But I have rented the Hyundai Elantra(sp) and my stepson has an 09 Honda Accord 6 cyl. Both cars are also excellent. Hey Stevepennyclark, I've driven my MBZ to Wal-Mart and saved money. Only negative is...........I don't speak Spanish!! My first car was a '68 Camaro convertible, 327 automatic, stereo FM radio, A/C, bucket seats. Wish I still had it. Learned on a '58 white Chevy Biscayne. What a tank...I mean car.

      For those not driving in excess, leasing is the only way to fly. Why buy a depreciating asset when you can rent? This, by the way, goes for women too. LOL. Buy appreciating assets. That is called an investment. Rent depreciating assets. That is called smart.
        • 4 Years Ago
        No kidding. I lease one vehicle and own the other. The leased vehicle is brand new and covered for everything (including 100% roadside assistance). I grew up in a household where my parents only bought cheap used vehicles that were unreliable and always needed repairs. It was annoying and embarrassing.
