Any way you look at it, an SUV can offer that ideal combination of passenger and cargo volume. If you only need an SUV for a short time, however, it may be a burden if you buy it at full-price and then have problems with insurance and maintenance expenses.
As such, leasing one may be possible if you know how to close a deal for good value, as Kristen Price wrote for The Nest. If you are in the market for an SUV in the Los Angeles area, but can’t afford to acquire it at full SRP, you can still go for a lease through a leading car dealership like Diviniti Auto Dealer.
When choosing an SUV for lease, you need to scan your preferred lessor’s offerings and reconcile them against your needs for getting such a vehicle. In her article, Kristen price notes that even if the dealer came back to you with an expected quote, you will have to study the leasing agreement first for any hidden fees. Additionally, for any mileage limits and the term duration.
A close look at your dealer’s SUV lease specials may produce hits on a number of desirable cars; Some of them can stand out according to your preferences:
- Toyota FJ Cruiser – One of the Three Ovals’ best products, the FJ has proven itself a winning off-roader, even though Toyota announced that the 2014 model was the last for the North American market. It boasts of a four-liter V6 that churns out 260 horsepower, which is notable for an SUV that never underwent a redesign. Its ultimate version is the Trail Teams model.
- Mercedes-Benz G550 – Figuring prominently in the final chase scene of The Bourne Supremacy, the Gelandewagen packs 328 horses in a 5.5-liter V8 engine and ample comfort. The 2015 model will be the last to be equipped with this engine, as a four-liter V8 is in the works for 2016. If you want more class, check with the lessor if they have a U.S. market-only G550 Night Star ready for lease.
- Chevrolet Suburban – The 2015 version of the archetypal American SUV has been given an all-new design. It still retains proud hallmarks of ample cargo space (121.1 cubic feet), seating capacity (up to nine people), and hefty muscle (5.3L V8 rated at 355 horsepower).
An SUV will be a surefire winner if you know which models fit your lifestyle and budget, even as one of many lease specials. Talk to a wholesale director at Diviniti Auto Dealer to find the right deal for you.
