If you want to lease a car in Ireland or anywhere else, now is the best time of the year to do so. December is often an ideal time to get a great lease deal. This is because the dealerships are trying to meet their established sales goal by the end of the year. This month, they’ll be trying to get the last of the prior year’s models from the lot before the new model year starts up in full swing.
Because of this, many manufacturers offer great deals on leases in December with no cash down at signing. Remember, your monthly payments can be a bit higher with these deals than with other lease deals.
For those who are eager to try something new, this is the right time to act as well. This time of the year is also when great deals will be offered on redesigned or brand-new cars to get more of them on the road by enticing buyers to try them out.
With that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the best looking new cars to lease right now.
2021 Acura RDX
The Acura RDX is a small luxury SUV with many available technology features, a well-built interior, excellent ergonomics, and better-than-average cargo and passenger space.
It also has a few weaknesses compared to top competitors. Namely, there isn’t an optional engine upgrade for buyers looking for more power or a hybrid option.
Overall, though it’s significantly less expensive than European alternatives, such as the Audi Q5, the Jaguar F-Pace, and the Mercedes GLC, so it might be worth your time if you are looking for a good value on a luxury SUV,
2021 Honda Passport
The Honda Passport offers a combination of spaciousness, comfort, and convenience that make it one of the most versatile SUVs on the market.
It has a spacious interior with lots of passenger space, comfortable front seats, and many smart storage compartments. Other vehicles that are close in comfort and quality to it include the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, Toyota Venza, and Hyundai Santa Fe.
However, when it comes to long-distance comfort and convenience features, Honda Passport stands ahead of its competitors.
2021 Kia Stinger
If you’re looking for a sporty sedan, check out the 2021 Kia Stinger. This car is quick, whether you’re pulling away from a stop sign or in need of some extra power to pass a vehicle on the highway.
There is a downside to all that power, though, as Stinger’s fuel economy isn’t exactly the best. Other than that, this small luxury car has a lot to offer, including a few additional active safety features such as blindside monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
2021 BMW 3 Series
BMW is always at the top. Even though it might not be the best of the best as it once was, this car is still very much worthy of your attention.
The standard 255-horsepower turbo-four engine is one of the more powerful in the class and has plenty of gusto for most suburban, urban, and commuter driving needs. On top of it all, it is surprisingly fuel-efficient.
The BMW 3 Series comes with comfortable leather seats, generous head- and legroom, and an abundance of soft-touch surfaces.
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC
In the class of luxury compact SUVs, the Mercedes-Benz GLC stands out due to its high-end interior. Its cabin is meticulously pieced together with fine materials, with an emphasis on passenger comfort.
The front and back seats come standard with synthetic leather, and there’s plenty of head- and legroom for passengers in both rows. During the ride, the passengers can enjoy the infotainment system that runs through a 10.2-inch touch screen located high on the dashboard, along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and two USB ports.
If speed is what you crave, the standard 255-horsepower turbo-four engine is there to meet your needs.
2021 Lexus RX
The 2021 Lexus RX isn’t exceptionally fast or super high-end, but it’s a very well-rounded family vehicle. Because of that, it’s consistently one of the better-selling luxury SUVs worldwide.
The RX can seat five passengers comfortably, with a third-row available in long-wheelbase models. The one downside to the RX is its limited cargo space – most competitors offer more than the RX.
Since this is meant as a family car first and foremost, it has an exceptionally long list of standard active safety features, including road sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
2020 Volvo S60
The Volvo S60 is a strikingly well-rounded luxury sedan, constructed of equal parts performance, comfort, and beautiful Scandinavian design. It isn’t the quickest or most luxurious in its class, but it offers a nice balance of performance, looks, and comfort.
A vehicle like this has many features that qualify the latest S60 to compete with long-standing class leaders such as the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Give the base S60 model, Momentum, a test ride, and see if this car is the right one for you.
2020 Jaguar I-PACE
Defending the honor of electric vehicles on this list, here ve have the 2020 Jaguar I-PACE. It offers satisfying and immediate acceleration, enjoyable steering and handling, and overall smooth ride quality.
While doing just about everything you’d want from a luxury SUV, it also possesses acceleration and handling that could make plenty of drivers of sports cars jealous. The fact that it happens to be powered by electricity can often be an afterthought.
When deciding which car to lease, it’s important to remember that the only good deal is one that fits your budget and your needs while simultaneously delivering a great car that you’ll be able to count on for many years. If something on this list looks attractive to you, consider the option of a lease.
A lease is one way you can get into a great vehicle with newer features, is under warranty, and has the latest safety tech, all without the commitment of a purchase, so why not indulge yourself.
