Hello experts!
First, thank you for taking the time to read and respond. My question to you all is not to appear lazy in my own research, but rather your input will serve as a spring board. It’s been YEARS since I’ve leased so I’ll definitely do my do diligence.

I’m leasing this time instead of purchasing because I am just not “wowed” by anything on the market right now. I have test driven many 2019-2020’s. I thought I’d lease for now until I can decide on a permanent vehicle later on. Maybe another model will wow me at end of my lease term 3 years from now.

That said, here are the three I’m considering.

BMW X4
Mercedes GLC 300 Coupe
Land Rover Evoke

From a leasing perspective, which offers best discount percentage from MSRP, RV, and best/ worst purchase option at the end of the term.....how would you rank the the 3?.... I know, it’s a broad question with many variables at play. But in general, your thoughts.

Your expertise, insight, advice is much appreciated!

    I will leave the #s to the experts, but have a few general comments. The first is, drive them all and make and see if you actually have a preference, or if they are all truly equal so any are fine. Usually, buying a "deal" instead of a car is a bad idea.

    and regardless of which of these you lease, it is unlikely that buying out at the end is going to make sense. So consider it a 3 year test drive, and when it is done, go get something new!

    I believe though that the MB is not a good lease deal (though is it possible the coupe is a slower seller). And on the BMW at least (not sure about LR and MB) look for a service loaner since those still lease, and usually quite a bit cheaper (though I doubt there are too many X4s in the loaner fleet).

    I'd drive all three and then I'd pick the one that made me smile- never mind which one is the best deal.
