If you’re looking for a new SUV at an affordable price, our latest list is the right place to start your search. That’s because we’ve listed a few of our favorite SUV deals and special offers available this month on a wide range of new models — from luxury crossovers and SUVs to subcompact models and large family haulers. Best of all, we’ve highlighted a variety of incentives, including cash-back offers, lease deals and special financing rates in order to ensure that there’s something for everyone.
The full-size Chevrolet Tahoe is an excellent SUV for hauling cargo, carrying passengers or towing heavy loads. Recently redesigned to offer more modern styling and improved technology, the 2016 Tahoe is available in May with two incentives. For qualified shoppers looking to finance a Tahoe, the SUV is available with 2.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. For drivers who would rather lease, Chevrolet is offering payments from $599 per month for 39 months after $2,279 down at lease signing. The Tahoe’s larger Suburban stablemate is available with similar offers, though the lease deal goes up to $629 per month (with $3,349 down) if you want Chevy’s larger SUV.
The Infiniti QX60 is a smooth, comfortable luxury crossover that offers standard 3-row seating and straddles the border between a midsize model and a full-size. Regardless of what you call it, the 2016 QX60 is available this month with some excellent incentives: Qualified shoppers looking to finance, for example, can get 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. Meanwhile, drivers looking to lease can also get a good deal on the QX60: a 36-month term with payments from $429 per month after $3,499 down at signing — terms that don’t change even if you want to upgrade to the year-round security of all-wheel drive.
The Mazda CX-3 is a subcompact crossover that slots below the CX-5 in the brand’s growing lineup — and directly competes with rivals such as the Honda HR-V and Chevrolet Trax. In May, the 2016 CX-3 is offered with a few incentives amid growing competition. The best deal is for qualified shoppers looking to finance, as Mazda is touting 1.9 percent interest on all 2016 CX-3 models for up to 60 months. But lease shoppers can also get a good deal in May, as Mazda is offering a 36-month term with payments from $199 per month after $1,989 down at lease signing.
The midsize Mercedes-Benz GLE is revised this year — an updated version of the brand’s M-Class luxury crossover. In May, the 2016 GLE is also offered with a few great deals, as Mercedes is trying to tempt shoppers away from newer and more modern rivals. The best offer is for qualified shoppers who are looking to finance a 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE, as the automaker is touting 2.99 percent interest for up to 36 months or 3.99 percent for up to 60 months. Mercedes also has a deal available in May for drivers who are looking to lease: a 36-month term with payments from $599 per month after $5,193 down at lease signing.
Range Rover Evoque
The compact Range Rover Evoque is a luxurious crossover with a wide range of amenities and some serious off-road capabilities. In May, the 2016 Evoque is offered with two incentives for qualified shoppers who are interested in leasing or financing their next SUV. For drivers looking to lease, the Evoque is available with payments from $429 per month for 36 months after $3,495 down at lease signing. For qualified drivers who would rather finance, the Evoque is available with 1.9 percent interest over an impressive 60-month term — an unusually long period for a luxury SUV.
The Subaru Forester is an excellent compact crossover with standard all-wheel drive, reasonable pricing and legendary durability. In May, shoppers who are interested in a 2016 Forester can get a great deal on the small SUV, as it’s offered with two strong incentives. The best deal is for drivers who are looking to finance, as Subaru is offering 0 percent interest for up to 36 months on all of the latest Forester models. But lease shoppers can also get a good deal, as Subaru is touting lease payments as low as $249 per month for 36 months with just $1,749 down at lease signing.
The recently upgraded Toyota RAV4 is an excellent compact crossover that touts good fuel economy, lots of high-tech features and a surprisingly roomy interior. In May, the 2016 RAV4 is offered with three incentives for qualified shoppers who are interested in a new SUV. The best deal is for qualified drivers who are looking to finance, as Toyota is offering 0 percent interest for up to 60 months — a deal that even applies to the hot new RAV4 Hybrid. Lease shoppers can also get a good deal, as Toyota is offering the base-level RAV4 LE with payments from $179 per month for 36 months after $2,899 down at lease signing. Finally, shoppers who are interested in paying cash can get up to $750 back on all 2016 RAV4 models.
The Volvo XC60 is a popular luxury compact crossover that offers handsome styling and a comfortable driving experience. In May, the XC60 is also offered with two enticing incentives. For qualified shoppers who are looking to finance a 2016 XC60, Volvo is offering 1.9 percent interest for up to 60 months — a deal that also includes up to $3,500 in “options allowances,” which is similar to a cash-back offer from other automakers. For drivers who would rather lease, Volvo also has a good deal available: a 36-month term on the base-level XC60 T5 Drive-E with payments from $365 per month after $4,000 down at lease signing.
