Check Out the Best SUV Lease Deals This Labor Day
Labor Day rivals Black Friday as one of the top holidays for scoring a deal on a lease. But the September long weekend has a key advantage over the Thanksgiving holiday: It’s earlier in the year, so buyers can choose from a wider range of inventory, including 2017 and 2018 models in a range of trims and colors (and 2017s will often be heavily discounted to make room for the 2018s).
Through the first weekend of September, you can find attractive lease terms on plenty of SUVs, including a couple of 2018 models new to the showroom floor.
Read ahead for Labor Day’s best SUV lease deals. Then, check our new car rankings to compare features before you head to the showroom. Deals listed are from manufacturers’ sites using representative ZIP codes. Note that deals may vary depending on location and the buyer’s credit score.
