, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 14, 2019

Nissan has introduced $0 down Sign & Drive leases on a handful of models like the Sentra and Altima. However, a closer look reveals that the effective cost of these vehicles hasn't improved much. In the case of the 2019 Sentra, the effective cost has actually risen to $265 (up from $260).

Alternatively, the manufacturer is also touting zero percent financing with zero down payment and zero payments for 90 days. That may sound pretty good, but the deal appears to be limited to loans of up to 36 months in nearly every instance. You may find rebates to be more appealing.

If you're looking to lease an SUV, be sure to look at the 2018 Murano S. This month's featured deal is $279 for 36 months with $1,399 due at signing after a $2,000 bonus. With an effective cost of $318, that makes it cheaper to lease than a 2019 Rogue S with all-wheel drive ($331).

Current offers end January 31, 2019 and vary by region. Examples listed here are for Southern California.

Insider Tips for Nissan Shoppers

You can generally rely on Nissan for a nice array of cashback, finance and lease incentives. However, the automaker loves to roll-out special deals around major holidays, usually worth an extra $500 on top of other offers.

Nissan incentives (leases in particular) can vary quite a bit across different regions. Be sure to check with your local dealer for the latest deals applicable to your location.

Although rebates and special financing offers are usually an either/or scenario, Nissan offers bonuses for financing at non-promotional rates. The best part is that these can be combined with cashback incentives. If you're looking to maximize your savings, we recommend this route.
