The run-up to the new year is always the best time to buy a vehicle. There’s no shortage of Christmastime car ads ramming that point home every time you turn on the television after Thanksgiving. For those who prefer the low monthly payments and full warranty coverage that come with leasing, however, the first month or so of 2021 is shaping up to be a fine time to sign.

Whether you’re in the market for a car, truck, SUV or van, you’ve got a sweet selection of deals to choose from on car leases for new 2020 and 2021 models across all kinds of brands and categories. Many deals get even sweeter for return lessees and several come with lease-to-own options. Keep in mind that the best deals are reserved only for the most qualified buyers and that many automakers offer different deals in different regions of the country. Also, do your homework but don’t dawdle — most of these deals end in the coming weeks.
2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque S
One of the more affordable models in the Range Rover lineup, the Evoque is known for its coupe-like appearance and supreme handling, both on the road and off. The five-door luxury subcompact SUV is currently available for $339 a month with $3,495 due at signing. The special offer includes $1,000 in customer credit.
2021 Volvo S60
The S60 is a compact entry-level luxury sedan that stands out for its excellent braking, acceleration, handling and material composition. Volvo is currently offering three good lease offers:
- S60 T5 Momentum: $329 per month with $3,629 cash due at signing
- S60 T6 AWD Momentum: $375 per month with $3,675 cash due at signing
- S60 Recharge R-Design Expression: $389 per month with $3,689 cash due at signing
2021 Mini Cooper Hard-Top 2-Door
Mini is currently offering brand new hard-top two-door Coopers for $209 a month for 36 months with $2,999 due at signing. That’s just the automaker’s cheapest current lease offer. Mini has other lease deals on other models, too, including the Countryman, Clubman and Convertible.
Select Mazda SUVs
Three SUVs are featured in Mazda’s Lease Loyalty Reward program. Returning lessees get $750 when they start a new lease on a 2021 CX-30, 2020/2021 CX-5 or 2021 CX-9. There are good lease deals right now on this lineup anyway, including $189 per month for 36 months with $2,999 due at signing for the 2021 Mazda CX-30.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Sport
The love-it-or-hate-it Wrangler/pickup mashup that is the Jeep Gladiator is available in the 4×4 Sport trim for $317 per month for 36 months with $3,995 due at signing. As good as that deal might sound, it’s actually Jeep’s most expensive currently advertised lease special. You can get into a Grand Cherokee Laredo E or a Compass for less than $200 per month, or a Cherokee Latitude Lux or Renegade Latitude for closer to $150.
2021 Nissan Sentra
Nissan is actually offering several new year lease deals right now, but few are better than the 2021 Sentra. With only $2,419 due at signing, the $189 monthly payments feel even lower. The Sentra is known as one of the most reliable and driveable compact cars on the market with an MSRP still under $20,000.
