I am in the market for a small SUV with nice features (audio controls on the steering wheel, moonroof, MP3 player, leather seats, etc). However, the most important feature is safety!!
Is there a good one out there that I can lease for approx. $350/month with zero down?

Crash safety ratings:
NHTSA (Front Driver/Front Passenger/Front Side/Rear Side)
Santa Fe: 5/5/5/5
Safety features-wise, all are fairly even with perhaps the Santa Fe having the edge with the addition of standard active head restraints.
Having had extensive experience in all three, I would say all three are pretty good. The one with the most bang for my buck - Santa Fe.
Get a test drive of all three and determine which one would fit your needs.

I'm also in the market for a small to mid-size SUV or crossover. I want to be able to carry two dog crates, luggage, husband and myself at minimum; might be nice if there would be room for other passengers as well. Because of the dog crates, I would prefer it if the back seats fold absolutely flat.
Fuel economy, NAV, leather seating, also are must-haves. Fun to drive would be a good thing. Comfortable to drive is a must.
I loved the Infiniti EX35 but it's probably too small for our needs.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Except the Santa Fe is NOT a small SUV...the Tucson would be the more appropriate comparison. Also consider the CR-V, the best selling one of all.....

I agree that was a sort of strange comparison, but still... did you realize that post was written exactly 3 years ago? This topic hasn't seen much conversation for quite a while.
