Which is the better deal/value?

Hoping for some input- I'm torn. Which is the better bargain assuming I typically flip cars every 24-30 months: A Certified 2017 Platinum Nissan Armada, loaded with under 1,500 miles (Dealer demo) for $48,500, or a Certified 2017 Infiniti QX80 base model with 24,000 miles (former rental) for $47,500?

I average of 18,000 miles per year on a truck.

Both deals seem to come in under the TMV dealer retail. Which would be the most likely to hold the best resale value?

    @kaybeer - you should come hang out over in the "Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous" thread. Lots of folks there who are always looking for their next deal.

    We could give you the best lease program, but without MSRPs and selling prices, we couldn’t tell you the best lease deal.

    The cheaper models are likely to have the lowest lease payments, though.

    Not the Volvo

    Thanks so much for the reply. Yes, the best lease program from those choices would be very helpful, if you could provide that..

    I agree with your comment about the cheaper models, but not in all cases. I’ve been doing a lot of leg work going to dealers recently, and sometimes they will discount a more expensive car to the point that the selling price aligns fairly close to a cheaper car, and it just comes down to the program.

    The Highlander has the best lease program. Whether that nets the best payment depends on discounts and negotiation.

    QX60 and Santa Fe will probably be next cheapest to lease, due to high incentives, followed by the Acura.

    Thanks! 

    Could you please provide the program details for the Highlander and QX60? 

    I checked existing posts and could only find it for the Santa Fe for my desired trim in my area. Saw the Santa Fe as .00024 and 54%; $1000 lease cash.

    How is the Mazda CX-9 leasing? This is a very good mid-size SUV.

    2018 GT AWD
    .00061 MF and 61% residual for 36/10.

    That's pretty good. No idea what sort of discounts are available.
