, Senior Pricing Analyst - September 10, 2018

This month, we found 79 SUVs with a lease payment under $300/month. At this price, your options range from a $21,000 Nissan Kicks SV to a nearly $38,000 Ford Flex SEL.

However, not all deals are great deals because of the amount due at signing. That's why we've calculated the effective cost of every SUV under $300 in the table at the bottom of this page.

Best Value

In New York, the Highlander LE is eligible for yet another outstanding lease. With an effective cost of just $342/month, we consider it to be an incredible value given its MSRP of over $35,000.

Believe it or not, the Highlander has the same effective cost as a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe LX despite a nearly $5,500 difference in MSRP. Talk about getting more for your money.

Honorable Mentions

The Cherokee Limited may be $6,800 more expensive than a Jeep Renegade Latitude, but it's actually $12/month cheaper to lease because of superior discounts. This is a case in which you can upgrade to a much nicer vehicle for less.

Cheapest Price

At nearly $25,000, the Rogue Sport S doesn't look like one of the cheapest leases on an SUV. But with an effective cost of just $250/month, it's $15 cheaper to lease than a Mazda CX-3 and $16 more affordable than the Hyundai Kona.

It may not make a lot of sense, but it's even $41 cheaper to lease than the new Nissan Kicks. Bigger discounts and a lower lease rate help offset the nearly $3,800 difference in MSRP prices for these vehicles.
