, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 6, 2018

This month, we found 64 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 SUV Lease Under $300

Coming from a 2012 or newer GM vehicle? You may be eligible for a $1,500 bonus that brings the amount due at signing down to just $291. As a result, this nearly $34,000 SUV can end up being cheaper to lease than a Honda CR-V LX despite a difference in MSRP of over $8,500.

Without the bonus, the amount at signing is $1,791 here in California, bringing the effective cost of the Acadia to $341/month. Even at that price, the Acadia is $1/month more affordable than the less-equipped 2019 Kia Sorento LX ($342).

Honorable Mentions

The Flex continues to feature very deep discounts when leasing. Although it has an MSRP approaching $38,000, its effective cost to lease is just $361/month here in California. At that price, it ends up being $1/month cheaper than a MINI Clubman ($362) despite an over $10,000 difference in MSRP.

Cheapest SUV Under $300

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 $14 cheaper to lease than a Mazda CX-3 ($264) and $26 more affordable than the Hyundai Kona ($276) here in Los Angeles.

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.
