The Best Current leases

Updated 4/10/2017

1. Honda Civic 2017

The compact Honda Civic was completely redesigned for 2016 and has since won numerous accolades and awards. Buyers love the smart interior, nimble driving characteristics, safety features, and excellent value.

Three body styles are available for 2017: a coupe, a four-door hatchback, and a sedan. All models have earned the highest collision safety ratings from both NHTSA and IIHS.

Si and Type-R models will join the line-up next year.

What’s New for 2017

Honda has announced that it will offer its sporty six-speed manual transmission on certain versions of the sedan and coupe. HD and XM satellite radio have been added to EX sedans. The hatchback body style is new for 2017.

Choosing Your Honda Civic

The primary decision when selecting a Civic is the body style. Honda has done an excellent job differentiating the three. The sporty-looking coupe has two passenger doors and a rear hatch. The hatchback looks a bit more angular and aggressive; it has four passenger doors and a hatch. The sophisticated sedan has four passenger doors and a trunk. There is no real price difference between the body styles.

Once the body style has been selected, the next decision is whether a manual transmission is wanted. Stick lovers are limited to LX, EX-T, and Sport trim levels in a chosen body style, while an automatic is available on all variations.

The last main decision is the engine choice, for those who care about such things. The base engine is a 2-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, and the turbocharged 1.5-liter option has 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Most importantly, the turbo has full torque available from about 1,700 rpm instead of 4,200 rpm in the non-turbo, meaning it will feel much livelier overall. While the turbo engine is available in all body styles, the base 2-liter is not available on the hatchback. For the coupe and sedan, the 1.5-liter turbo is found on middle and upper trim levels.

Once the buyer has selected the body, transmission, and engine, all that’s left is amenities. Honda seems to have as many as five (or more!) trim levels available for each style, but it’s actually simpler than that. There are base LX models, mid-range EX models, and top-of-the-line Touring models. All body styles follow the same trim level naming pattern.

A third letter may be added to an LX or EX (such as LX-P), but is heavily influenced by the previous engine and transmission choices. The overall meaning is the same.

The Sport designation denotes a slightly more powerful 1.5-liter turbo engine, underbody spoilers, 18-inch alloy wheels, and fog lights.


Base model Civics come standard with a cloth interior, automatic climate control, and a multi-angle rearview camera. Leather upholstery and many other options are available. A manual transmission is standard, but the automatic can be selected.


Mid-range Civics add a variety of features and options. Engine choice determines the availability of some packages, but expect to find a power sunroof, remote start, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a standard automatic transmission. Various wheels, trim pieces, and useful interior amenities are available.


Navigation is standard on the premium Civic, as is a 10-speaker sound system, a power passenger seat, LED headlamps, and automatic wipers. The Honda Sensing package is also added as standard equipment, with lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision alert with automatic braking. This capable safety package is an option on all other trims.



2. Chevrolet Cruze 2017

Introduced in 2011, the second-generation Chevrolet Cruze rolled out five years later. Lighter, larger and more polished than the original, no encore is needed. But don’t tell that to Chevrolet as the first compact hatchback since the Cavalier joins the sedan for 2017. We think the new body style will be well received as customers discover the extra measure of versatility hatchbacks provide.

What’s New for 2017

Yes, a hatchback joins the sedan this year. This five-door model sits on the same roomy 106.3-inch wheelbase as the sedan, but comes in nine inches shorter overall. Where the sedan’s trunk measures a generous 14.8 cubic feet, the hatchback offers a whopping 47.2 cubic feet of cargo space when the second row is down. The new model is designed to appeal to a variety of people, including pet lovers, do-it-yourselves, and campers.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Cruze

Priced from $24,820, the Premier Hatchback matches the equipment found in the Premier Sedan




3. 2017 Jeep Wrangler

Hardly any vehicle is as iconic as the two-door Jeep Wrangler, or as immediately recognizable. Clearly qualifying as the original adventure SUV, the Wrangler is a modern-day descendant of the military Jeep that saw service in World War II. Now part of Fiat Chrysler, Jeep offers a variety of affordable customization options for the Wrangler. Each version is intended to remain true to the core of its all-American “go anywhere and do anything” essence. Considered a midsize model, the current Wrangler uses body-on-frame construction and “live” axles, and comes with either a manual or automatic transmission.

What’s New for 2017

Not much has changed for the Wrangler, apart from new LED headlights and fog lamps. They’re standard on Sahara and Rubicon models, and optional on the Sport and Sport S. A Cold Weather Group, available on the Sport S and Rubicon, includes 17-inch wheels, an engine block heater, heated seats, remote start, and a Power Convenience Group.

Command-Trac part-time four-wheel drive is standard, except on the Rubicon, which gets Rock-Trac with a lower low-gear ratio.

Standard exterior details include a papallet 10 body colours, three of them new for 2017. Each Wrangler gets “classic” round headlights, a seven-slot grille, trapezoidal wheel flares, removable doors, exposed hinges, skid plates, a fold-down windshield, a Sunrider soft top with sunroof, and front and rear tow hooks. Removable half-doors are available. Wranglers offer a choice of several axle gear ratios that emphasize either economy or capability. Trailer sway control is standard.


The basic Wrangler comes with cloth seat upholstery, eight-speaker audio, black fender flares, halogen headlights, fog lamps, roll-up windows, a removable rear bench seat, and 16-inch wheels. Mechanical features include Dana front and rear axles, and Command-Trac part-time four-wheel drive with a two-speed transfer case and a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio. An optional Trac-Lock limited-slip rear differential can provide extra grip in low-traction environments.


Building on the Sahara and Sport offerings, the Rubicon concentrates on off-road capability with heavy-duty Dana 44 front/rear axles and a Rock-Trac two-speed transfer case with a 4.01 low-range gear ratio. Also included are electronic front and rear locking differentials, and a front sway bar that can be disconnected. Black-painted steel rock rails are included, and 17-inch wheels hold BF Goodrich Mud Terrain LT255/75R17 BSW on/off-road tires.





4. 2017 Lexus RX 350

When it debuted more than 15 years ago, the Lexus RX practically defined the luxury crossover category. A consistent best-seller among luxury SUVs, it’s still a refined premium, midsize vehicle for five passengers. Lexus has tried to emphasize the “sport” element in the RX 350, including adding an F Sport edition, but it’s mainly a vehicle for families who enjoy a strong taste of luxury in their travels. Lexus redesigned and enlarged the RX 350 and its RX 450h hybrid counterpart for 2016, giving them a bold—even radical—new look, highlighted by a massive grille.

What’s New for 2017

An F Sport front-drive model has joined the line-up. The Lexus Safety System+ is now standard, including a pre-collision system, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure alert with steering assist. Blind-spot monitoring, now standard, includes rear cross-traffic alert. Lexus Display Audio has added a Scout GPS link. F Sport models and Premium packages now include a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Still, most of the essential ingredients that have made the 3 Series so successful, for so long, are present in the entry-level 320i edition.

Like most BMWs, the 320i comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but you can opt for the xDrive all-wheel drive system instead. A 320i is the slowest-accelerating member of the 3 Series family, but also the most frugal. With rear-drive, either transmission earns an EPA fuel economy estimate of 23 mpg in city driving and 35 mpg on the highway. Combined driving is estimated at 28 mpg (27 mpg with manual shift).

Dedicated enthusiasts might want to consider the $2,300 Track Handling package, which includes an adaptive M sport suspension as well as upgraded variable steering and brakes.

Prices start at $34,145 (including destination charge). BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive adds $2,000.




7. Honda accord 2017 best leases

The Accord has long been Honda’s top-selling model, and a refresh for 2016 made it even more popular. The 2017 model, which includes a newSportSE trim level, is seeing its inventory improve.

The Honda Accord is an ideal combination of comfort, reliability and performance, which is why it has been a top seller for decades and has one of the best in class resale values.

The 2016 Accord received a major facelift, which included new grilles, taillights, a redesigned interior and technology upgrades. The 2017 Accord will remain mostly unchanged, with a complete overhaul due in 2018.

Wha thet’s New for 2017

There won’t be many changes this year but expect a whole slew of changes for 2018 as the Accord is being completely remodelled. Honda Sensing is now an available option across all trims and comes standard on the Touring model. This safety system includes collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and lane keeping assist. It also includes road departure mitigation as well as adaptive cruise control.
