Car Reviews The best lease deals on luxury sedans under $50,000

Luxury cars have redefined themselves over the past decade. Automakers have continued to extend their lineups with more entry-level models in hopes of capturing customers for life. Attractive lease rates and incentives have further made luxury nameplates ever more accessible.

We’ve featured some of our favourite offers this week on sport sedans that can be leased for less than $650 per month. If you don’t find an offer that suits you, be sure to check out the Globe Drive Build and Price Tool to see the latest incentives and discounts on any new car, truck or SUV.
