2011 Volkswagen Golf
The Volkswagen Golf has leapfrogged as arguably the best lease deal in the small car segment, off setting a $17,995 starting price with a $199 a month for 36 month ($1999 due at signing) lease deal. Although its nearly $3000 more than the Civic and $5000 more than the Fiesta, the Golf offers a powerful five cylinder 170HP base engine, strong safety with an electronic stability package, and a luxury level interior with Bluetooth and a touch screen music system as standard.

2011 Nissan Sentra
Nissan is offering a 39 month, $139 per month with a $1999 down payment on its Sentra series. Although it languishes at the bottom of the small car rankings for mediocre performance and below average safety scores and fuel economy for its class, its more than adequate as a commuter car and a good choice for first time drivers.
