Here you’ll see our top picks for the best lease deals on small and midsize cars, crossover SUVs and trucks, and luxury cars and crossovers.

Best Small Car Lease Deals

2015 Subaru Impreza
  • Monthly Payment: $209
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $0
  • MSRP: $21,790
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

This month’s lease on the Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium continues to be our top pick on a small sedan. The Civic is a compelling alternative, but the Impreza comes out to a better deal if you consider it normally has an MSRP that’s $1,680 higher. You can also choose the hatchback style for just $10 more per month. Get a custom lease quote on a Subaru Impreza »

2015 Honda Civic
  • Monthly Payment: $200
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $0
  • MSRP: $20,110
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

Honda cut lease prices on the Civic LX by $10 late last month. It’s now neck and neck with the Impreza as a top small car lease. The Civic is also one of the few small cars with a $0 down lease option. Prefer a lower payment? With $1,999 at signing the monthly payment falls to just $149.

Best Midsize Car Lease Deals

2015 Honda Accord (Updated June 19, 2015)
2015 Honda Accord
  • Monthly Payment: $189
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $1,999
  • MSRP: $23,725
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

Midsize car leases are incredibly competitive right now. However, there are few choices with a zero-down option like $240 per month on the Accord LX CVT sedan. The best deal, however, is on the coupe- the MSRP is $1,720 higher but the lease is only $10 more per month with $100 extra at signing. This is because of large unadvertised discounts that started in late May that make the coupe a better deal (Editor's Note: Honda improved incentives on June 19, resulting in a $10 payment cut on the LX Sedan).

2016 Mazda Mazda6
  • Monthly Payment: $199
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $1,999
  • MSRP: $23,815
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

Deals are getting better on the 2016 Mazda6 now that the 2015 model is close to selling out. A $20 payment cut for June puts the Mazda6 Sport with Automatic on par with competitors like the Accord and Camry. The Mazda6 isn’t just another vanilla sedan, however- a fuel efficient design and sporty handling have made it a fast favorite among shoppers. Get a custom lease quote on a Mazda Mazda6 »

Best Crossover Lease Deals

2015 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Monthly Payment: $179
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $2,499
  • MSRP: $27,120
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

The Tiguan continues to be the best deal on a crossover, period. For just $179 per month and $2,499 due at signing, you can lease a Tiguan 2.0T S with automatic transmission. That’s essentially the price of an economy car lease on a vehicle with an MSRP of $27,120. Get a custom lease quote on a Volkswagen Tiguan »

2015 Chevrolet Trax
  • Monthly Payment: $199
  • Term: 39 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $1,439
  • MSRP: $23,320
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

There are few small crossovers with a lease deal as good as the Trax LT at just $199 per month with $1,439 due at signing. Current GM lessees can save $500, lowering the amount due at signing to just $939. You won’t see a deal like that on the Honda HR-V or Jeep Renegade. Get a custom lease quote on an Chevrolet Trax »

2015 Honda Pilot
  • Monthly Payment: $269
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $2,399
  • MSRP: $35,400
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

Honda’s sell-down of the 2015 Pilot is probably at its peak. Up to $2,750 in lease discounts make the Pilot SE 2WD a bargain at $269 per month with $2,399 due at signing. You can also choose a zero due at signing lease for $330 per month. The all-new 2016 model is due soon but it’ll become the most expensive model in Honda’s lineup.

Best Luxury Car Lease Deals

2015 Lincoln MKZ
  • Monthly Payment: $229
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 10.5k
  • Due at Signing: $4,454
  • MSRP: $42,455
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

You have to admit, it’s hard to imagine leasing a luxury car for $229 per month like you can on the MKZ Base with Moonroof and 19-inch polished wheels. Lincoln increased lease discounts to $5,250, more than just about any other competitor. Even if you factor the large amount due at signing, this is still an exceptional deal on a car with an MSRP over $42,000. Get a custom lease quote on a Lincoln MKZ »

2015 Infiniti Q50
  • Monthly Payment: $309
  • Term: 39 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $3,499
  • MSRP: $40,905
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

Once again, the Q50 ranks as one of the best deals on a luxury car. Infiniti is using $3,000 in unadvertised lease discounts to make the Q50 Premium more appealing to lease shoppers. There are few cars with a deal like this that come with advanced features like dual LCD displays and customizable steering. Get a custom lease quote on an Infiniti Q50 »

2015 Lexus IS 250
  • Monthly Payment: $349
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $1,099
  • MSRP: $38,159
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

Last month’s outstanding $349 per month lease on the IS 250 Rear-Wheel Drive continues in June. You probably won’t find another luxury sedan with its low amount due at signing of just $1,099. If you take that into account, this equates to an outstanding lease deal. Get a custom lease quote on a Lexus IS 250 »

Best Luxury Crossover Lease Deals

2015 Buick Enclave
  • Monthly Payment: $317
  • Term: 39 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $1,817
  • MSRP: $39,975
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

Once again, Buick has a bafflingly-low $317 per month lease on the Enclave Base with Convenience Package. The amount due at signing is also just $1,817, thousands less than competitors. That’s unheard-of on a crossover with an MSRP of $39,975. Ready to be wowed? A $1,500 incentive for current non-GM lessees can reduce your amount due at signing to just $317. Get a custom lease quote on a Buick Enclave »

2015 Acura RDX
  • Monthly Payment: $309
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $2,299
  • MSRP: $36,015
  • Expires: July 6, 2015

There are few luxury crossovers that can be leased from $309 per month with $2,299 on the RDX Base. It’s also one of the few choices with a zero-down lease from $370 per month. We’re probably in our final months on this type of deal now that the 2016 model has started arriving. Get a custom lease quote on an Acura RDX »

2015 Lexus RX 350
  • Monthly Payment: $399
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $2,999
  • MSRP: $46,138
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

The lease deal on the Lexus RX is usually good but not great. However, Lexus cut the amount due at signing this month by a sizeable $400 on the RX 350 Premium with Front-wheel Drive. It’s now one of our top picks on a luxury crossover lease. Get a custom lease quote on a Lexus RX 350 »

Best Truck Lease Deals

2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • Monthly Payment: $319
  • Term: 39 months
  • Mileage: 10k
  • Due at Signing: $3,229
  • MSRP: $40,575
  • Expires: June 30, 2015

Last month’s $319 per month deal continues on the Silverado 1500 1LT Double Cab 4x4 with All Star Package. The Silverado succeeded at being last year’s most-awarded full-size truck. Sure, you could lease a 2015 F-150 with newer technology, but it’s also considerably more expensive. Get a custom lease quote on a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 »

2015 RAM 1500
  • Monthly Payment: $299
  • Term: 36 months
  • Mileage: 12k
  • Due at Signing: $2,999

It’s hard to believe you can lease a full-size truck for $299 per month, but that’s exactly what RAM is offering again this month on the 1500 Express Crew Cab 4x2. The RAM 1500 succeeds at appealing to shoppers that don’t need revolutionary technology but who recognize an outstanding truck when they see one. Get a custom lease quote on a RAM 1500 »
