German term or phrase: Leasingsonderzahlung
Hi folks.
Doing an advertising brochure for a car seller. They are offering autos for sale or lease and one of the offers has

"Leasingsonderzahlung oder Ihr Gebrauchter ... XXX EUR"

Now, when I look on various USA sites, they give TWO possibilities. My question is: Which is it?

The possibilities I see, as listed here, are:

Down payment
or
Cash due at signing

The offers I have seen list BOTH of these in the USA, but there is only that one in the offer from Germany. I am leaning toward "Down payment" because they will take your used car in trade, but I am not sure. So, which is it?

Thanks for reading.

see source below: down payment is the initial upfront portion of the total amount due and it is usually given in cash at the time of finalizing the transaction

$369 First months payment
$2,500 Down payment
$400 Security Deposit
$3,269 Cash due at signing

check figures from page you referenced:
first month + down payment + security = TOTAL cash due on first day

I went with down payment because all the info I looked at pointed to that, especially the trade-in of the used car.
Thanks.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Actually, they are not. See: http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/FinancialServices/LeaseOfferDetail.aspx?enc=lEr/4bum8vTNeYd315a3vQ==

Asker: So, given that there are two in the USA, and only ONE in Germany, how would you phrase this?


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Julija Sametz-Art: It is a special leasing rate (down payment) Not sure if it is necessarily due at signing. I would go with "down payment" or "special leasing rate"
1 hr
