, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 13, 2019

All 2018 Acuras have sold out at this point, which means your only choice for buying or leasing is probably going to be a 2019 model. The popular RDX continues to be very expensive to lease with an effective cost of $492/month. At that price, some may find the larger 2019 MDX to be a better deal ($517).

The MDX features up to $3,000 in unadvertised lease discounts. In contrast, there are no such offers on the RDX. For those looking to buy, expect to see rates as low as 1.9% APR on models like the ILX. However, the term is limited to 36 months, and the lowest you'll see on more popular vehicles is 2.9% for 60.

Offers listed here are available nationally and end February 28, 2019.

Insider Tips for Acura Shoppers

Acura doesn't offer cash incentives like a lot of automakers. Instead, it gives dealers unadvertised incentives called dealer cash to discount vehicles without hurting its brand. In some cases, this can amount to thousands in potential savings.

These discounts can sometimes vary depending on vehicle trim, with greater savings on upgraded styles with Premium or Technology Packages. This helps explain why Acura leases tend to favor better-equipped configurations when it comes to value.

Acura sometimes offers loyalty discounts for current owners, as well as bonuses for those coming from a competitor. These are typically worth around $750 but availability varies month to month. Ads sometimes factor-in these discounts, so if you aren't eligible, actual prices may be higher.

Recent college grads may be eligible for the Acura College Graduate Program. It offers an additional $500 off most new vehicles, although you'll have to finance through Acura Financial Services in order to qualify.
