I have been planning on leasing an HR V this week until I got the lease rates. They are exceptionally high when compared to CR-v rates for the same lease price car. For instance a 36 month lease on the hr v is $2,456 higher in total lease payments than a CR v that actually has a capital cost that is $758 higher than the HR v. The difference as best I can tell is in the depreciation calculation (residual value is $14,549 HRv Vs $16,368 CRv) and the money factor that is .00165 for the HR v and .00051 for the CR v. As much as I love the HR v this makes it unleasable and a no go for me. With $2755 due at signing the CRv is $159 a month and the HRV is $227, a $70+ a month difference. You can check lease pricing at this Weymouth Honda lease calculator http://www.weymouthhonda.com/lease) which is an awesome tool. Hope this helps but it looks like now is not the time to lease an HRv.
