September lease deals are now fully available for consumers. We have analyzed our data and discovered 32 SUVs that have a monthly payment that falls under $300, two more vehicles than last month. Much of this list will look the same as last month's analysis, but there are some new faces and new model years that came into play.

While some of these payments have risen in cost by at least $10 or so and now more closely toe the line, there are still plenty that remain far below the $300 cap. With MSRPs that range from around $20,000 (2022 Hyundai Venue) to $35,000 (2023 Hyundai Kona), none of the deals have risen in cost enough to be deemed a bad offer.

We have taken into consideration the MSRP, the monthly payment, and the length of the lease term to come up with the effective monthly cost of each of the vehicles below and help you determine which deal works best for you. To make things even easier, immediately below you'll find our picks for the best and cheapest SUVs to lease this month.

Best SUV Lease Under $300

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

It comes as no surprise that the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV is the best SUV lease deal in September, as it has been the best deal for months now. The EV SUV, specifically in the 2LT trim, comes out to an effective monthly cost of $311 when you factor together the monthly payment of $239 and the $2,579 due at signing. This is a great deal relative to the vehicle's MSRP of $34,495.

Keep in mind, however, that this deal is only for shoppers in the San Francisco area who are current Chevy Bolt lessees. That obviously puts a huge limitation on the number of people who can make use of this offer, but Chevy offers a nationwide deal for current Bolt lessees that comes out to only $20 more in the effective monthly cost. Since the Bolt EUV is an electric vehicle, certain state rebates and tax credits may be available to you.

Cheapest SUV Lease Under $300

2022 Hyundai Venue

Just like with the best lease deal above, the cheapest lease deal may look familiar, as it is the same title-winner as the last several months. The 2022 Hyundai Venue in the SE trim is the lowest-cost lease you can get in September. At only $169 per month and $3,199 due at signing, this SUV has an effective monthly cost of $258 when divided up between the 36-month lease term. Considering its MSRP of $20,295, that is a very budget-friendly deal for a subcompact SUV.

The caveat, however, is that this offer is only for consumers in the Southern California region. Thankfully, it isn't only for current lessees as with the Bolt EUV's deal, but if you don't live in that area you may expect to pay a bit more. Comparable deals are likely to be found elsewhere in the country, so be sure to shop around.
