The RRS, even in it's base HSE dressing, is a heck of a lot of truck for $700 a month...
That really is not a great lease deal for a 63k vehicle. That's a 4k cap reduction the buyer pays, then add in your title and licensing (that can be substantial depending on how your state does it), so you can easily end up with 5-5.5k out of pocket. Then add your taxes onto that $800, so at 7% (just a guess) you're at $860 and then you only get 10k miles a year. To put that in perspective I landed a 2012 GL450 with an MSRP in the mid-70s, no cap reduction on my part, 15k miles a year, and pay materially less than $860 a month.
That said, Rover might blow out the old models later this year at an actual good lease cost.
