OK... We're talking about a wannabe upscale brand. You will never see discounts like this with other top tier brands.

Just like how Hyundai does the same. One would be stupid to ever purchase from these manufacturers without these kind of sales.
$10,000 off 3 series.

Certain times of year you can get close to 20k of X5s. Mercedes does cash incentives, Audi too. Lexus is doing $6k off RX350 at this time (https://www.lexus.ca/lexus/en/shopping- ... -offers/rx), Infiniti has $13k off their biggest SUV off now. A lot of makes do it. Maybe not brands like Porsche, but certainly BMW/MB/Lexus/Audi.

Audi A8 is offering $5000 credit after negotiated price. Considering current A8 is almost end of cycle and sales is low, I would expect at least 5-6% off MSRP, which makes it $10,000+ discount easily.

C-Class back in December had
$2000 in cash credit
3 monthly payments waived ($1500-2000 in total)
5.5% off MSRP
accessories about $800-1000 in value

Unless it's a pre-order on a super hot anticipated all-new model, it's not hard to get significant discount from German luxury brands.

I don't think the 3 series is considered upscale. At least not in the GTA. There's more plastic bits and crappy interior feels in a 3 series as there is in a Subaru Impreza. I don't understand how people hate on Subaru's interiors when BMW/MB/Audi are just as cheap. I mean, finger nail scratching cheap, lol.

You're comparing discounts on cars that cost significantly more than the MDX, yet the MDX is still a larger discount dollar wise. You don't see a problem there?

Again Acura does this shit at least twice a year to move their cars due to lack luster sales. Look at the RLX, why they even bother with that turd is beyond logic.

That's one car that the dealer is offering $10k off, not the manufacturer blowing out unsold cars. You really do only read what you want to believe don't you...

I have never seen 20k off a new X5 in the GTA, maybe an X5M but definitely not the regular 35i X5.

I've got a '17 MDX with 33 months left remaining on the lease and I'd really like to move into something else. Like yours, my transmission is clunky and I'm just not thrilled with the X any more. Did you trade-in your X to the Volvo dealer?

I listed a link for Lexus RX350 incentive right from manufacturer that was $6k which was pretty close to the 6.5k MDX had. Unless you don't consider Lexus a top tear make.

By the way that BMW is now $13,000 off in the link. Even if that dealer isn't getting manufacturer support behind them why does that matter to a customer? The fact is it's not selling and they have to offer ridiculous discounts on it to move it.

How does it not matter if the discounts are not back by the manufacturer? It clearly shows that the manufacturer is not worried about moving product vs. Others who rely on steep discounts to move them. Acura has a history of doing this over and over, no different from Hyundai. Only reason why they sell so many is because of the steep discounts from the MANUFACTURER.

This is normal for Acura. It's the only way they move their product.
Plus it’s last years model. It’s already depreciated a year.
