SUVs leasing info (SoCal) - help with numbers!

I am new to leasing and am looking for info on small SUVs.

What MF, residual value and lease or loyalty credits (if any) should I be looking for on a 36 / 10k lease, zip code 92618 for the following models?

  • Hyundai Kona SE
  • Honda HRV LX
  • Toyota Corolla Cross L
  • VW Taos S
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross ES 1.5T
  • Jeep Renegade Sport

Thank you!

You should be going to Edmunds forum for each of these vehicles.

I sell all of these vehicles, The HR-V LX will be the lowest.

You’ll do much better in learning to lease effectively going through these steps than copy and pasting from a YouTube video:

It is practically impossible for us to tell you what a “good” monthly payment is for your specific lease as lease programs are highly dependent on region, personal qualifications, tax rates, etc.

We always recommend the following method before you ever contact a dealership. If you do all of the work up front, you’ll have a stress free dealer experience and set yourself for success.

  1. Read Leasing 101 (EDITORIAL | LEASEHACKR) to understand how to calculate a lease payment and the variables. Monthly payment is an output, not an input!! While you’re at it, be sure to watch the LH video (How to Use Leasehackr - YouTube) to brush up on how to most efficiently use the resources here.
  2. Pick a specific vehicle that you want to target
  3. Gather the current MF, RV and incentives from the LH Calculator - Lease Program Query or Edmunds forums for your zip code
  4. Research the LH marketplace and other deals that have been made recently on your vehicle - what was their pre-incentive discount? How did their lease terms differ?
  5. Plug your numbers into the LH calculator (CALCULATOR | LEASEHACKR), and use a pre-incentive discount similar to what you have seen
  6. Create a target deal, this is what you’re trying to negotiate to. You can try different terms, selling price discount, etc. and see how your monthly payment is affected. It is also possible that different trims of your vehicle may have different MF and RV (i.e. this is very common with GM), so make sure that you look into that. Come up with a set of inputs that give you the output that you want - your desired monthly payment.

With a target price determined, you now have a deal to pursue and compare dealer offers against. More importantly, you have a solid foundation to work from.
