It may be Friday the 13th but Honda has good news for shoppers. In an unusual mid-month change, the segment-leading CR-V gets a set of improved offers. The deals, which run from March 12 to May 11, are the best we've seen on the updated 2015 model.

New lower payments

If you've been waiting for a lower lease payment on a new CR-V, this should get your attention. The monthly payment on a 39-month lease now starts at a mere $209 for the 2WD LX. This is a $30 drop from the $239 offer earlier this month. But that's not all- the amount due at signing gets a $200 cut from $2,199 to $1,999.

New $0 due at signing offer

If you're wary of a big down payment, Honda has an attractive new $0 due at signing deal. This is the first time we've seen this type of offer on the 2015 model.

Taking this option means a higher monthly payment, but still within reason- $260 for 39 months. Oddly, the payment is identical for both the LX 2WD and LX AWD models.

Our take

Honda sold 22,298 CR-Vs last month, outselling the Accord and Civic. The automaker is likely hoping to build its momentum in the red-hot crossover segment. The timing is probably right since 2014 models are gone following an aggressive clearance event.

We suspect Honda's strategy will work since these are outstanding deals. If you've been on the fence due to less-than-ideal offers, now is a great time to lease what is arguably the best iteration of the CR-V we've seen to date.
