, Senior Pricing Analyst - April 12, 2017

Special offers from Lexus have taken a sudden turn for the worse. For April, the fickle automaker has cancelled cashback incentives worth up to $2,500. The only model still offered with a rebate is the CT 200h.

Speaking of the CT 200h, discounts actually make it one of the best deals on a hybrid. In fact, it has a cheaper effective lease cost compared to the Toyota Prius. You can lease one from just $249/month.

The popular NX 200t crossover suffers from a small $10 price hike. However, it continues to rank as one of the best luxury SUV leases. This month’s offer starts at $319/month.

Current offers will expire May 1, 2017. We’re hoping to see more aggressive offers next month prior to Memorial Day.

Insider Tips for Lexus Shoppers

Lexus has traditionally avoided offering cashback incentives, imposing strict rules to its dealers not to advertise cutthroat pricing. However, this only began changing in August with a number of attractive public offers to attract shoppers.

Incentives from Lexus tend to change month-to-month by a much larger degree than automakers like Audi and Mercedes-Benz. As a result, shoppers may find that some months are excellent for leasing or financing— but rarely both.

Major promotions include the Golden Opportunity Sales Event in summer and December to Remember. These are some of the best times to buy or lease a Lexus.

Be prepared to find mostly well-equipped models when you get to the dealer. To meet demand, inventory tends to come bundled with popular factory options like Premium Packages and Navigation, which can increase base prices anywhere from $3,000-$5,000.
