The 2018 Toyota RAV-4 is back on top with an excellent lease deal. At $249.00 per month average payment, you won’t get a better equipped SUV than this. It is is amazing how quickly the RAV-4 went from bottom to top as the 2017 models with established residual values have been cleared off the lots. As predicted, the RAV-4 wasn’t out of the top spot for long and is this month’s best deal with a winning margin of .05%. Other Crossovers are roughly the same as they were since December. Missing something? Luxury SUVs have their own listing. The Acura RDX and RAV4 remain pretty strong leases for this month. The Average Monthly Car Payment on the RDX is just $378.17 and the RAV4 just $267.06 for this month.

SUV or Crossover?

The difference between SUVs and Crossover SUVs have become much more ambiguous these days. If you are confused as to what constitutes an SUV and what constitutes a Crossover, don’t feel bad. Even the car manufacturers don’t always agree on the same classification. While Crossover SUVs tend to be more on the compact side, they range and vary greatly in price, luxury, performance, and features. Crossovers are perhaps the fastest growing segment of the SUV market. These days, they offer families and personal car owners exactly what they need whether its performance, luxury, or economy. You will notice a very mixed bag of automobiles here, ranging in price from $22,000 to $45,000.

There are 13 Crossover SUVs ranked this month. The one thing to keep in mind with all leases, whether it’s a car, SUV, truck, or crossover is that model year and residual value drives the best deals. Honda has an all-new, redesigned CR-V for 2017. Keep your eye out for remarkable discounts on the 2017 models which should result in excellent lease payments. Always ask your dealer for a better deal.
