, Senior Pricing Analyst - October 8, 2018

This month, we found 46 leases at or under $199/month. In this range, you can choose from a surprisingly wide range of models like a $15,000 Mitsubishi Mirage to a nearly $38,000 Ford Flex.

Unfortunately, it's impossible to know if you're actually getting a good deal because the amount due at signing can vary. That's why we've listed the effective cost of every $199 lease at the bottom of this page.

Here are our top picks for this month. Also be sure to check out our monthly analysis of over 400 leases. Offers are available nationally unless noted otherwise.

What's Hot: At $199/month, the 2018 Acura ILX continues to be the cheapest lease on a luxury car. Even though it's $4,600 more expensive than a Honda Accord LX, the ILX is $48/month cheaper to lease when comparing effective monthly costs ($268 vs. $316).

What's Not: The ILX is stocked in much fewer numbers than the brand's popular SUVs. This is also for a base model with leatherette seats. Adding leather, a better audio system and blind spot monitor requires the optional Premium Package.

What's Not: This is a regional offer in Los Angeles for the all-wheel drive Rogue Sport S. Deals in other parts of the country may differ based on local incentives.
