Updated! BMW Lease Programs For December 2015 - What You Need To Know (Expired)
We've updated LeaseCompare, our sortable and searchable database of lease programs, to include the latest numbers from BMWFS. Here are some of the highlights this December.
BMW's bread and butter, the 3-series, makes for a solid lease. Thanks to strong residuals and $1,500 in incentives, all have a Leasehackr score of at least 8. If you qualify for certain targeted incentives, a 320i can be had for under $300, which is awesome in our view.
BMW's wonderful 2-series is a pretty poor lease. It's a shame because the M235i is one of the best cars that BMW makes. You might want to consider the 340i, which packs a similar punch and leases for less, despite having a higher MSRP.
As expected, the lame duck 2015 X1 is much cheaper to lease than the all-new 2016 X1. The residuals are actually higher on the old car, which goes to show that BMW's residuals bear no semblance to reality. If you've always wanted forearm strength-building steering and a bone-shattering ride in your SUV (kidding!), now is your chance to get one.
Just like in November, the zippy i3 Mega City Vehicle continues to be a great lease. BMW! BMW! BMW!
About LeaseCompare Estimates
We apply the following assumptions to every vehicle on LeaseCompare:
12,000 miles per year
$0 down payment
only first month's payment, document fee, and government fees due at signing
sales tax not included
acquisition fee rolled into lease
top tier credit
a competitive sales price
includes all rebates available to the general public
LeaseCompare estimates do not include any targeted incentives, which will result in lower lease payments. Putting down multiple security deposits and choosing a lower mileage lease will further reduce the cost of the lease.
