One of the secrets in getting low monthly payments on your car lease is to select a vehicle with a high residual value. This is because the residual value will be deducted from the sticker price of the car, giving you the overall lease price.
Lease a cheaper car, and you get low monthly payments. If you lease a car with a higher residual value, then you can enjoy lower payments and great value for money.

But there are some luxury SUV's that stand out from the rest when it comes to future resale values. Here are the top 2012 luxury SUV's with the highest residual value according to Kelly Blue Book:
