The best Acura deals involve generous incentives when switching brands, as well as loyalty discounts. For example, the 2021 Acura TLX features $2,500 in savings plus 0% financing. That said, the sporty new TLX Type S is excluded from these deals.

We consider the RDX one of the better luxury SUVs you can lease with deals starting at just $369/month. As usual, the entry-level ILX is among the cheapest luxury cars you can lease with payments from $239/month.

Offers listed here are available nationally through August 31, 2021.

Must-Know Advice For Acura Buyers

New models coming. Late 2020 brings the addition of the 2021 TLX redesign. We've also learned that the 2022 MDX will get similar looks further down the road. A new range of Type S models also promises sportier performance beyond mere aesthetics. As a result, waiting could be worth it for those with time on their side.

Fewer cars. Now that the RLX has been discontinued, the ILX and TLX remain the only two sedans in the brand's lineup. Acura no longer builds either the TL or TSX, and the NSX is a luxury coupe at the top of the range with a price tag of over $150,000. Expect the brand's SUVs to be comparatively easier to find.

Hidden discounts. Acura doesn't offer cash incentives like most automakers. Like Honda, it gives dealers unadvertised incentives called dealer cash to discount vehicles to protect its brand. In some cases, this can amount to thousands in savings. Expect to see the best deals on sedans like the TLX and SUVs like the MDX.

Better incentives for financing. A recent trend we've noticed is that Acura's best deals favor those looking to finance. Dealer finance cash incentives can greatly benefit shoppers planning to take out a loan through Acura Financial. In some cases, this can be a smart alternative to low APR promos in terms of your overall cost.

Discounts can favor well-equipped styles. Thinking of upgrading? Our analysis finds that avoiding a base trim can sometimes get you access to better discounts for buying & leasing. In fact, comparing lease prices can reveal surprises like a smaller-than-expected difference in monthly payment or effective cost to lease.

Savings for switching. Acura sometimes offers loyalty discounts to current owners and conquest cash incentives for switching brands. These are typically worth around $750 to as much as $1,500. Watch out for lease prices that include these incentives because you may be faced with a higher payment or amount due at signing if you aren't eligible.

Used car deals. Looking to save more money? The Acura Certified Pre-Owned Program can get you access to low rates. See our monthly CPO deal analysis for the best offers as promos can vary month to month and focus only on select models.

College grad discounts. Recent grads may be eligible for the Acura College Graduate Program for an extra $500 off most vehicles when financing or leasing through Acura Financial Services.
