09 Toyota Prius Lease Rates for February 2009

My Take: The money factor is terrible on the Prius, but the high residual value makes up for it. Remember, when you lease, you are paying for the estimated depreciation of the vehicle for the term of your lease. So the higher the residual, the lower the base payments. Ideally, you want a lower money factor (interest). If you don’t mind paying 6.84% interest on the depreciation of lease, the Prius isn’t a bad choice for a lease. Of course, I’d rather have the MINI Cooper S. There is $500 cash back on the Prius, so be sure to factor that in during your negotiations.
