Take some time to do some reading and research here. There’s a great leasing 101 section to read through (but ignore the part about the 1% rule) and there are lots of threads to use as reference for target pre-incentive discounts.
Best way to get a good deal is to be educated. Talking numbers with a dealer is for finding a dealer that will do your target deal. It isn’t for finding out how much a far should cost. If you don’t know what the car should cost and what a good deal is prior to talking to a dealer, you’ve set yourself up for failure.
Well I did a quick looksie through the deals section and did not really see anything in your price range that stood out. I have been out of the lease market since December so maybe your deal is better than I thought. What are you driving now? Do you qualify for any other incentives?
Solid deal, anything else is gonna come from the dealer discount. Maybe get on the phone with the desk manager and see what they can do to get you in to sign, this is usually the last thing I do and is good for $0 to a couple hundred more off if you commit to coming in that day.
Just my 2 cents, but I would pay a few bucks more for the Sport and get apple carplay. To me it’s worth it, others might not agree, but I use it everyday, or at least the days I drive thanks to stay at home orders.
Although Hondas don’t normally lease well, given that they don’t offer much in incentives, if I were OP I wouldn’t go with an outdated Acura model. The infotainment system in the TLX is terrible.
The Accord was redesigned for MY 2018 so it is a newer model. With the Accord, you won’t have to worry about premium gas and maybe a cheaper insurance premium (depending on your location and driving record).
I do agree with the above statement. Good luck @buzzsaw.
