, Senior Pricing Analyst - September 6, 2018

Incentives for buying or leasing an Acura carry on mostly unchanged. As before, leases start at just $199/month on the ILX, making it the cheapest lease on a luxury car. Financing rates start at 0.9% APR, but only for 36 months.

Offers on the 2019 TLX have improved and now start at just $309/month. However, versions with the Technology Package feature better discounts and may equate to a superior value.

The redesigned RDX continues to be incredibly expensive to lease. In fact, the base trim has an effective cost that's just $5/month less than the 2018 MDX, which could make for a compelling upgrade.

Offers listed here are available nationally and end October 31, 2018.

Tips on Acura Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

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.
