There aren’t many good choices for renting new cars, so this month we tried to find eight cars that we would endure for the next 24-36 months until things get back to normal.

We have a strong attitude towards sedans because many automakers are promoting sedans because stocks of other models remain small and bargain prices remain high. The key is to avoid dealer surcharges in this unprecedented, inverted market, and special rental supported by the manufacturer may be your best way to get a new car without overpaying. Keep in mind that there are many unattractive deals (would you like a Toyota Avalon for $ 519 a month?) As the automotive industry with fewer cars for sale is desperately trying to make as much profit as possible from each sale.

While you’re at it, read our leasing guide. We’ve covered everything that can be silenced in the showroom: promotional fees, monetary factors, leftovers, legal implications and all the other small fonts that can cost you thousands more than you expected. When comparing similar cars, keep in mind that a lower monthly price often requires more money up front. As with any national special lease, enter your zip code on the automaker’s website to see if these offers apply to your region. Prices may be higher or lower depending on the region. Study is always your friend.

For a small all-wheel drive crossover you won’t find a better rental than this base CX-30. Many of the other rentals we found in this category were for front-wheel drive models that couldn’t come close to the style and comfort of a Mazda ride. Compared to the larger CX-5, the CX-30 is cramped for four people – these large rear doors are deceiving – but on the outside it’s much more sophisticated and has LED turn signals that mimic the slow fading of halogen bulbs. Such design details are why we strive for Mazda (plus good steering and quality interior).

Ram continues to lead Ford and GM in ride quality, handling and well-equipped interiors. Despite the upgrade of the Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 in 2022, as well as the redesign of the F-150 for 2021, the Ram 1500 is the truck we recommend. This is a rental for the Big Horn 4×4 with a crew cabin and a standard bed. It also leaves enough freedom in order to add a few thousand dollars to the options so you don’t stay with the base truck.

The Corolla on steelies is not the same as the 10-year-old Corolla on steelies. For starters, it is much better equipped (with 10 airbags, including rear side airbags, which even luxury cars do not include as standard, and an adaptive cruise with active steering). Just like the current Camry, on the last Corolla the driving became more interesting, thanks to Toyota’s renewed efforts on handling and chassis dynamics in its bread and butter-powered cars. We prefer the middle class SE with a six-speed mechanical machine – if you can find such a unicorn in stock.

The best alternative to the small sedan is the Civic, which plans a complete overhaul by 2022. The interior, similar to the Audi, is better than most of the latest A3 models, which cost twice as much as this Civic Sport (which comes with 18-inch black discs, a key and driver assistance such as lane keeping). It’s not as sporty as the Civic Sport Hatchback, which has Honda’s superb six-speed mechanics, and also doesn’t have a turbocharged EX engine with great torque. You will also need to have a 2012 Honda release or newer to qualify for this offer.

Kia Forte has come a long way since its debut in 2009. While the name still can’t be envied, Kia’s clearer style, new standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless, and improved suspension settings make the Forte attractive, not to mention the long warranty. Kia also continues to offer the most flexible rental deals on almost every car. Want this Forte LXS for 24 months? It costs $ 10 less per month and a couple hundred more when you sign up. We want all automakers to sell leasing deals this way.

To find the maximum value of the sedan, look no further than the Subaru Legacy. This offer is cheaper than the Civic and Corolla on cars with more space and all-wheel drive. However, there are a few things to keep in mind: this base trim has some old-school features, including a metal ignition key and two Nintendo-style screens mounted in a plastic panel. But at this price, especially considering Subaru’s safety ratings, there’s no better sedan in any weather.

For a short city car with even shorter life, look out for the Trailblazer, which reminds us of the Suzuki SX4 crossover from the late 2000s. It’s one of the smallest SUVs, similar to an SUV, with all-wheel drive (and a small 1.3-liter three-cylinder engine that actually moves great – thanks to the turbo). This base LT isn’t as well equipped as the Hyundai Kona or Nissan Kicks, so keep in mind that you won’t get a lot of features for this high payment. Style, small size and safety on the Trailblazer side.

To illustrate the other side of the “rental deal,” consider a Trailblazer-type car priced 75 percent higher. This is the base model Evoque S, the cheapest and smallest Range Rover, a model that has never reached such popularity in our country as in Europe. In most affluent American cities, people either ride big bikes or crash while trying. However, this lease also allows you to upgrade the R-Dynamic SE, which adds 20-inch wheels, leather, Meridian stereo and blind spot monitoring.
