Whether it’s for those long drives across Utah or your daily commute, anyone that has ever driven an SUV before understands how versatile they can be. And SUV lovers have their favorite models they love for a litany of reasons, from the cargo space and legroom to the handling and performance or luxury features.
No matter what you’re looking for in an SUV for your next vehicle, you want to know that you’re making the right choice for your needs. That’s why the used car leasing financing pros at Drivrz Financial have put together our list of the best used SUV models of 2018 to lease used. When we say 2018 was the year of the SUV, we’re not kidding!
2018 Volkswagen Atlas
This is one of the best three-row SUVs of the 2018 model year. Powered by a range-topping 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 276-horsepower, it has some of the best towing capacity in its class with up to 5,000 pounds. When you spring for the all-wheel-drive option, you’ll change the way you think of an SUV. The Atlas is one of our favorites, packed with sophisticated technology, an eight-inch touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and state-of-the-art passive and active safety features available.
2018 Volvo XC40
If you’re considering cargo space, this may be one of the smallest SUVs on our list, but it packs quite the punch. Propelled like a tiny SUV bullet from the word go, the 2018 Volvo XC40 comes with a standard 250-horsepower turbocharged inline-four engine. In addition, with Volvo’s state-of-the-art suite of safety systems that include a pre-collision warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-mitigation system, you’ll be driving safe everywhere you go.
2018 Subaru Ascent
The three-row Ascent surprised us in 2018. Built for long family hauls and trips to the grocery store, you’ll discover plenty of cargo space inside a crossover that’s fun to drive. The 2018 Subaru Ascent comes with a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 260-horsepower, more than the Atlas. And thanks to Subaru’s cutting-edge EyeSight driver assistance and safety technology, you’ll have adaptive cruise control, lane departure and sway warning, pre-collision braking, and lane-keep assist at your fingertips standard on all trims.
2018 Chevy Equinox Diesel
You would think that a compact diesel crossover SUV sounds strange, but the Chevy Equinox will quickly change your mind. With a robust 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine and 130-horsepower, you’ll have up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity. In addition, every Equinox Diesel comes standard with Chevy’s Confidence and Convenience package that includes features like automatic braking, automatic lane keep assist with lane-departure warning, forward collision alert system, vibrating seat alert system, a following-distance indicator, and more!
2018 Ford Expedition
The 2018 Ford Expedition remains the King of SUVs in 2018 with this hotly anticipated new and improved SUV packed full of incredible interior quality, luxury, and comfort. Complete with 121.5 cubic feet of cargo room and a third-row seat, you’ll love the versatility you have driving your new Expedition. This model year has two available engine options, starting with the standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 375-horsepower. And if you’re looking for 9,300 pounds of towing capacity, you’ll want to find the more potent and more finely tuned 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 Platinum Series engine that has 400 hundred horses pulling it along.
