1. 2021 Buick Encore GX

2022 Buick Encore GX Front Left Side in Green

The Encore GX is a subcompact SUV that joined Buick’s lineup for the 2020 model year. A bit bigger than the regular Encore (which is related in name only), we like the Encore GX for its modern safety suite, available combo of all-wheel drive with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

2. 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer Activ

4. 2021 Hyundai Venue

2021 Hyundai Venue Front Passenger Side in Gray

The Venue is a newer subcompact model from Hyundai. It has some SUV proportions, but given the lack of available all-wheel drive, we’re inclined to view it more as a practical and value-packed hatch vs. a traditional sport utility vehicle. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard. Find a Hyundai Venue for sale

MSRP: $19,935
Offer: $149 a month for 36 months with $2,399 down

2021 Mazda CX-30 Front Right Side in Red

The CX-30 has been one of the most compelling subcompact SUVs on the market since it went on sale for the 2020 model year. From the styling to the interior to the driving dynamics, the CX-30 is a refined package. You can even get it with a potent turbocharged engine. Find a Mazda CX-30 for sale

Where You Can Buy

Loading dealers...


  1. In researching the 2021 Chevrolet Bolt EV and after communicating with and visiting several dealers, I find no dealer offering any lease that comes close to the terms you state. How do you arrive at your numbers? Is there an offer number or discount code or something similar that you can provide that allows a serious buyer to claim one of the deals you write about?

    Without this kind of backup it seems you are simply telling tales out of school.

    “You think you got a great lease? Well let me tell you about the one I got!”

    • Bruce,
      Thanks for the heads up! There was indeed a typo in the article and we have edited it accordingly. Note: some of these deals may be regional.
