2017 Premium. Higher residual, lower monthly, lower drive off.

purely numbers, the 2017. But…you’ll be in the car for the next three years so the question to ask is whether the extra features of both premium plus & tech pkg are worth roughly $2k more (total over life of lease) to you? Personally I would try to push for a slightly lower selling price on the 2016 to make up for the lower residual and lack of bonus cash because I’m a sucker for gadgets and tech that make my commute more enjoyable.

2017 … not knowing exactly what Plus + Tech is of the 2016 (can’t seem to find info) – “virtual cockpit”?

Sometimes 2016 “plus” stuff becomes base of the newer 2017 model.
