Television ads featuring new cars, trucks and crossovers with giant red bows on them are no longer flooding the airwaves, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few deals to be had on a new vehicle.
Kelley Blue Book, or KBB.com, tracked down the best 10 lease and purchase deals currently available with the Nissan Rogue topping their list. A 2017 Rogue can be leased for just $189 a month with $1,899 down for 36 months.
In fact, the top four deals are leases offerings, according to KBB.com.
“The holidays may be over, but if you’re looking to buy or lease a new vehicle, this month’s list presents a wide variety of appealing deals,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
