Acura Holiday Specials

On December 15, lease payments were cut $10/month on the 2018 TLX. You can now lease one from $299 for 36 months with $2,499 at signing, which equates to an effective cost of $368/month.

That represents a $14/month advantage over a Lexus IS 200t ($382) and a whopping $62/month advantage over a Mercedes-Benz CLA250 ($430).

As before, the 2018 ILX continues to be one of the cheapest luxury car leases at just $219 for 36 months with $2,499 at signing when taking advantage of a discount for coming from a competitor.

Considering a used car? Acura is offering promotional rates as low as 0.9% APR on the RDX and MDX.

Buick Holiday Specials

Buick is offering a ridiculous 25% off promotion on 2017 Encore and Envision models. That's a big improvement compared to offers earlier this month of 20% on the Encore and 17% on the Envision.

On a well-equipped Encore Premium, that can potentially equate to a discount of $8,222. In the case of the Envision, that could translate to as much as $11,471 off MSRP.

This is the best deal we've seen all year on both models.

Chevy Holiday Specials

Although Chevy started off the month offering Employee Pricing, an even better deal has emerged on select models.

You can now get 25% off your choice of either the 2017 Cruze or Trax. On a well-equipped Cruze Premier, the automaker says that can equate to savings of up to $7,347, a completely insane amount for a vehicle in this class.

A 20% discount is available on the 2017 Spark, Sonic, Malibu and Impala. That's worth up to $8,087 off MSRP in the case of a loaded Impala Premier, the most we've seen all year.

Honda Holiday Specials

On Tuesday, Honda cut national lease prices on the 2018 Honda Fit and HR-V. Depending on the style you choose, you can now save $10/month and up to $300 at signing compared to offers earlier this month.

Discounts on the Fit actually now favor non-LX versions. Believe it or not, the mid-level Fit Sport now features the exact same $169/month, $2,299 at signing lease as the entry-level LX despite a $1,310 difference in MSRP.

The 2017 Pilot remains a great value following a $20 payment cut late last month. You can now lease one from just $289 for 36 months with $3,099 at signing, which equates to an effective cost under $400/month.

Considering a used car? Honda is offering remarkable rates as low as 0.9% APR on vehicles like the Civic, Accord, CR-V and more.
