My daughter’s CX-5 lease is ending soon and I am having a hard time finding something comparable to replace it with. I am paying $340 per month (tax included) for her fully loaded CX-5 GS and would like to find a small to mid-sized SUV at or below the same payment. It needs to have Blind Spot Detection and Apple Carplay. Thinking about a Tiguan, a CX-30, or Kia Sportage, but am open to anything else that might be hackable at the moment. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am in the Los Angeles area.
Hyundai kona it honda hrv should be doable in that price
got you cheaper on the Equinox LT or base premier. Blazer somewhat close
Have you considered leasing another CX5? I recognize that inventory and incentives/loyalty and key variables (RV and MF) are likely different now, but back in November, I got my father another CX5 GT.
I shopped multiple SoCal dealers at the time.
That’s a great deal. My daughter actually loves her CX-5. Will reach out to Patrick. Thanks for the info!
Thank you. Will check those vehicles out.
Not familiar with the Chevy lineup but will check them out. Thanks!
ended up with the CX-30 for about that monthly. Highly recommend @AutoNinjas when dealing with Mazda
Another cx5, crv, rav4, tiguan, compass, and terrain
Sounds like you’d like something on the larger side of compact. The Tiguan is a great choice. The base model Tiguan S has CarPlay and blind spot monitor standard. There’s a SoCal dealer on here that has one for $218 with drive offs, but you may need to go up a tier in miles/yr.
We have a 2019. The the back seat has a ton of leg room and can be moved fore & aft. The only major downside is the 3rd row is standard on FWD models, so you lose a bit of cargo area depth, but still plenty of space.
The Equinox is a good choice too, but you have to go up to LT with comfort/convenience package to get blind spot. But it has a ton of content. But sounds like Trish can still get you one for ~$300.
As others mentioned, a CX-30 with the loyalty offer, might end up being a pretty good offer as well. Though I dunno if cheaper than the Tiguan and you do need to step up a trim to get CarPlay (not sure about blind spot).
Great. Thanks. The CX-30 has a lot going for it. We really have enjoyed the CX-5 a lot and I have been impressed with the overall quality of Mazda as a brand.
Last time out, the Tiguan felt a bit big for my daughter but I think she is warming to the idea this time around. Will definitely check it out.
i took my first real drive today and I absolutely adore my car. Definitely consider it.
You should be able to get a CX 5 GT with 0 down around $300 month with current incentives.
