Consumers interested in leases under 24 months
A new survey from Swapalease.com shows that car shoppers are more interested in shorter-term lease options than the traditional 36-month lease. An online survey presented to more than 2,500 drivers across the coutnry shows that roughly 70 percent of those polled would like lease terms of 24 months or less as an option by their dealer.
The survey was inspired in part by Uberês recent decision to lease cars to drivers in 30-day increments. As many as 74 percent of those polled said a 30-day lease is something they are maybe or absolutely interested in. Women are more interested in leasing a compact car, hybrid or crossover during that time, while men would prefer a premium luxury or sports car.
Short-term lease options are becoming more popular and will eventually be part of whatês offered at a dealership simply because of where consumer preferences now exist, said Scot Hall, executive vice president of Swapalease.com.Download Bulletin PDF
