Guide to Leasing a New Acura

From the moment you are considering a new vehicle in your driveway, two options are presented to you. Do you purchase the vehicle outright or do you opt to lease the new vehicle? We hope this guide to leasing a new vehicle will help you in making the decision that works best for you.

Benefits of Leasing a New Acura

For many consumers, buying isn’t always the most feasible plan of action to obtain a new vehicle. Sometimes leasing a new vehicle is the optimal choice for many reasons. However, two of the major benefits of leasing vehicles are that it typically requires lower down payments and comes with lower monthly payments than purchasing a new vehicle.

The down payment and monthly payments are determined by the vehicle’s residual value. This means you pay for the amount that the vehicle depreciates while it is under the lease contract.
For example: If you lease a base model 2017 Acura ILX with an MSRP of $27,990* and a residual value of 44% after 36 months (and roughly 36,000 miles on the odometer), you are paying around $12,315.60 over a 36-month lease period since that is how much it will lose in depreciation.

Fortunately, Acura is the best choice for leasing when it comes to luxury automobiles. In a study completed by Edmunds, for their 2016 Best Retained Value® Awards, they found that Acura has the highest retained value compared to other luxury brands. This means that models of comparable price from other makes can actually cost you more money to lease.

Typically, when leasing, the new vehicle will be under the manufacturer warranty for the life of the lease or close to it. This means that if any unexpected maintenance issues arise, there is a good chance that the solution will be covered under warranty and not out of your pocket.

For people who like to be in the loop with the latest technology, leasing a new Acura is the ideal choice. As lease periods most commonly range from 24 to 60 months, you will have the opportunity to upgrade to a new model with the latest and greatest technology every handful of years, or sooner.

5 Steps to Take When Looking to Lease a New Acura

Once you decide that leasing a new Acura is the right choice for you, there are necessary steps to take.

  • First, you will want to determine what you want in a vehicle—whether your main focus is passenger room, such as in the MDX, affordable luxury found in the ILX, state-of-the-art technology that comes with the RLX, or something in between. The Acura model lineup is versatile and has a vehicle to suit nearly any desire.
  • It is then important to use a tool, such as a lease calculator, to get a better understanding of what you can afford. This will also help in settling on the exact Acura model that you are looking to lease.
  • With a price point in mind, you can view both Acura Offers and other Offers & Incentives. This will help you determine the ideal model and trim level that fits within your budget.
  • Once you find the exact vehicle that you want to lease, you can contact Acura Columbus to receive a price quote on that specific vehicle, as well as ask any questions, and even schedule a test drive.
  • The final step in the process of leasing a new Acura is to physically visit our dealership. At this time we can assist you with any remaining questions you may have, as well as review and sign the paperwork.
