2017 Acura RDX lease price paid ?

Hi, I am looking to lease 2017 RDX TECH or ELITE model for 48 months with 24000KM with 1.99% current lease rate. Did anyone recently lease this vehicle ? If you are, how much did you pay ? please help me out.

From Unhaggle, I have following information

2017 Acura RDX Technology Package
Base MSRP: $45,190
Invoice Price: $41,575
Cash Rebate (After Tax): $3,500
Finance Rebate (After Tax): $2,000
Lease Rebate (After Tax): $2,000
Lease Residual $ 48 Month- 24,000 KM: $19,884
Total Monthly Payment (Lease, After Tax) 48 Month- 24,000 KM: $658

2017 Acura RDX Elite Package
Base MSRP: $46,790
Invoice Price: $43,047
Cash Rebate (After Tax): $3,500
Finance Rebate (After Tax): $2,000
Lease Rebate (After Tax): $2,000
Lease Residual $ 48 Month- 24,000 KM: $20,120
Total Monthly Payment (Lease, After Tax) 48 Month- 24,000 KM: $692

I am not sure how to use this info to come up lease amount little above invoice price since lease involves interest rate and stuff ? This is the first car I am going to lease in my life so don't have any experience

Also since there is $2000 lease rebate, does it mean the invoice price can go down 41575 -2000 for TECH model ?

If you're thinking about an Acura, why don't you go for a 2017 BMW X3, the current interest rate is 0.9% with a 2000 credit. If you get the premium essential package which comes with nav, heated steering wheel, sunroof, etc...

Your monthly payments are around the same price if not less. Unless you're planning to buy it back, with a lease you might as well go for a german. It'll also be way better on gas, the X3 also no longer needs premium fuel.

Lease, I would go for German.

Wow, no premium for X3, good to know. Takes 89 octane instead?


Lexus NX200T also give u good rate like 1.9% and if you putting a security deposit, it can drop as low as 0.4%
It gives you F sport credit, vary from $500-2000 depend on their monthly promo.
If you keeping the car after lease, Lexus is a good option.

I was looking at X3 too but I am planing to buy back the Acura when I return and if they try to charge me big amount for scratches or damages. If I lease X3 and if they charge me for scratches and damages when I return, I don't want to buy back X3. BUT X3 current lease rate is 1.9% too... where did you see 0.9%

Where did you read that the x3 doesn't take premium? I find this hard to believe since they're the same engines they put in all the rest of the sedans/coupes?

Also agree that you should go German if leasing and not buying back, assuming that you're comparing apples to apples with sames packages/specs. One of the biggest cost of owning german cars is the maintenance in later years, which you wouldnt have to deal with in the lease option.

recommended is 91 Octane. Minimum is 89 Octane. I guess if for leasing, some will simply put in whatever the cheapest to run the car.

If we put regular gas, won't they find out in any way when return the vehicle ?

suppose you put in regular gas for the entire time and the car exhibits no major engine issue (just reduced performance), then you may be fine. There are worse thing people do to the leased car than just putting in regular gas.

It comes down to whether you want to spend the $500 extra per year on premium gas vs regular gas or not.

Also I don't think 2017 RDX TECH vs BMW X3 with essential package (in order to get what inculded in RDX TECH) are almost same price. The difference is around 6k

suppose you consider the above with premium essential & upgrade leather seats - MSRP $53,100
Assumption:

20,000km per year
43% residual
6.5% off MSRP - dealer side discount
$2000 off from factory credit
$0 down

Projected monthly - $637 + taxes OTR

Due on delivery: 1st + security dep (if applicable) + PPSA + license + gas

If the engine is damaged as a result of excessive pinging and BMW can prove it...

That said the car isn't programmed to run with less octane so the car will have less power and possibly higher consumption.

Get a 2017 CRV Touring, has every option and more than RDX for less and just as quiet. And way better on gas mileage and takes regular. There is practically every option imaginable on new CRV Touring. And there sensing technology is best in business.

No they do not, unless you consider 89 to be premium
