Depends on what trim level you’re seeking. The Mazda CX-5 Sport has the best lease available. 

Google, “ money factors” and “residuals” You want the money factor as low as possible and the residual percentage as high as possible (assuming you have no intent to buy at the end of lease).

Edit: forgot to mention lease cash. If any of them have lease cash available this helps as well, the equivalent of a rebate on a purchase.

Also, I have no idea what you’re talking about in terms of Problems on the Mazda. I just helped a family member secure a great lease on one last week. Helped another family member purchase a Rogue a couple days ago. The RAV4 should also be one that garners your consideration.  Santa Fe’s are good to, but heard their current leases are terrible.

I agree with the The Mazda CX-5 recommendation.  Guy at my work has one and loves it and it seems like a good vehicle. If leasing works for you and is what you intend to do, won't the car be under warranty the entire time you have it? Any car you lease would be new, so I wouldn't expect reliability to be an big issue regardless of what vehicle you choose.

My wife's been driving a CRV for 11 years (same one) with no complaints. I like Mazdas too. I've been driving the same Miata since 1989. The CX-5 is a huge seller.

Why do you want to lease, that's my question.  To me, buying one a model year older instead of leasing makes more sense,  in 3 years when you would be turning it in it should have a little positive value sincethe biggest hit is year one.  Plus you should theoretically have warranty those 3 years as well.   You can also buy without a big down payment like you have with a lease,  so even if you just get pay off on it when you get rid of it you still come out ahead.

You want an SUV hybrid? Or more of a classic SUV?

Nissan Xterra's are starting to get cheap. Id love to get an SUV again. I love the gas mileage in my Acura but with the way people fuggin drive around this town I do feel less safe.

Would like to get my hands on a pro 4x Xterra or a facelifted Tacoma in the coming years.

lease an equinox or qx80 and make sure to put as much money down. it's also ok if you go over on miles, it's not that big of deal.

oh forgot to mention...only lease a vehicle under 30K...if over 30K and especially luxury (benz, caddy, bmw, etc) you'll want to buy those and don't put any money down since they hold their value so well. also if you buy, DONT get gap, but do get the warranties.

I just switched to Honda’s after driving exclusively Mazda’s. Honda’s just have that solid quality feel and resale value you don’t get with Mazda’s and especially not with Toyota’s.

With that said, the price of a Honda isn’t really worth it from a Mazda, unless you just like the car. Mazda’s are great, underrated cars and have excellent reliability. 

If I was planning to keep a car for it’s life I’d go Mazda no question, and would take it over Toyota, personally. Honda’s are my favorite at the moment mainly for resale value.

If you are leasing, then it seems to me the brand of vehicle would be irrelevant.  Dependability for almost all newer vehicles is good, its only after four or five years that vehicle manufacturing quality really comes into play.  And anything that breaks would be covered under warranty.  What difference does it make if Honda's last 20 years while some other brand only last 10 years before major maintenance, if you are only going to have it for five years?

 

If you are leasing, then I would say look at vehicle safety, then cost, then how much you like the looks, the ride, etc....
