5 Affordable Compact SUV Lease Deals For Well Under $400 a Month

Finding a good lease deal on a new car can be tough, unless you know where to turn. Fortunately, there are helpful videos on Youtube that can guide you in the right direction. For example, Ari Janessian, who is an auto broker and Youtuber, consistently uploads videos on how to get the best car deals and for this week, he released some of the most affordable lease deals that you should be to get this month.

We pulled five cars from his list to show you some of the more popular models that you can most likely strike a deal on for this upcoming holiday season. Keep in mind that all the deals are factored based on only paying the lease inception fees upfront (first month’s payment, tax, title, and registration fees), a mileage allotment of 12,000 miles per year, and no tax included (since the tax rate in different states can vary).

Jeep Wrangler Sport

If you’re looking for a capable vehicle that can take you anywhere you want to go both on and off the road, then there’s no better choice than the Jeep Wrangler. The Wrangler Sport is the lowest trim level that you can buy, however, it still comes with everything you need including a stout V6 engine, a 2,000-pound tow rating, and enough ground clearance to clear some robust terrain. And for now, with no money down, you can currently lease one for $321 per month, plus tax.

Nissan Rogue S

The Nissan Rogue was just updated for the 2021 model year, and with the redesign came a new look inside and out as well as more luxurious amenities. If you want the best deal, you’ll have to settle for the base-trim Rogue S, but you’ll still get a fuel-efficient 2.5-liter engine and ample seating room for up to five passengers. You can currently lease one in AWD form for only $312 per month plus tax.

Mazda CX-5 Sport

There’s probably not enough good things that we can say about the Mazda CX-5. As the automaker’s most-popular compact crossover, the CX-5 provides buyers with an upscale experience along with refined driving dynamics for a fair price. And right now, you can get one for an even better lease price of $299 per month, plus tax.

Toyota RAV4 LE AWD

The Toyota RAV4 rarely needs any kind of introduction no matter what country you’re in. With a compliant ride, practical cargo capabilities, and the option of a hybrid powertrain, the RAV4 provides a reliable and fuel-efficient way to get around town and a comfortable means of transport for longer trips. You can now pick one up for just $267 per month plus tax, but just note that Janessian included the available “owner loyalty” discounts to that price. So your price might be higher if you don’t currently own a Toyota,
