Best SUV Leases Ranked by Lease Value

Best SUV Leases for February

2017 VW Tiguan and Acura RDS Top this Months Best SUV Leases

The Volkswagen Tiguan will be completely redesigned in the near future which means substantial savings on the fully loaded, 2017 4-Motion models. The advertised special is for $199.00 per month with $2,499.00, but you can do much better than that! I’ve seen deals on the $28,300 4-Motion for as low as $220.00 with absolutely nothing down. Now, that is a sweet SUV lease!

The Acura RDX lease is every bit as good. You can lease the  2017 Acura RDX for $299.00 per month with a $2,999.00 Cap Reduction. That gives you an average car payment of $374.00 and an LVR of just 1.02%. As is the case with the Volkswagen, there are better deals being offered from your dealer. Always ask for a better deal.

SUV Leasing has gotten substantially better each and every month since this blog began in 2008. The popular top rankings from month to month are usually owned by the Toyota RAV4 and Chevrolet Equinox, but I’ve moved those over to a new segment which better reflects the type of SUV they really are: Best Crossover SUVs

The category, SUV, tends to encompass a wide variety of styles, and types of Sport Utility Vehicles. I’ve separated the larger styles into their own category. Even with the new categories, there is likely to be much bickering and arguing over which cars belong in which segment. For the month of August, I’ve chosen the Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander, Chevrolet Traverse, and Mazda CX-9, all of which sell for around $26,000 to $33,000 MSRP.  I think most would agree that the Nissan Pathfinder is the one car in the group that most represents the protypical version of what we think of as an SUV.

Is your Favorite SUV Missing?

If you don’t see your favorite SUV, it doesn’t mean that it still might not have an excellent lease offer. Always check the manufacturer’s website. Some might argue that the Tiguan belongs with the Crossover segment. Chevrolet has had better deals on the Traverse in the past, but this month the Tiguan has an excellent deal, so we had to place it somewhere. It also might be argued that a fully, loaded Hyundai Santa Fe with 7-seats could be placed in this category for around $33,000. Check with the website and dealer to get the best deal.
