December Deals: Happy Honda Days

- The event runs through January 3, and also includes impressive lease rates
Honda is celebrating the holiday season by wishing car shoppers a Happy Honda Days. The year-end event includes a host of special offers ranging from low financing rates to highly attractive lease deals, and is offered on nearly all of the automaker's models through January 3. We've rounded up a few of the most appealing deals, highlighting some of the best rates on each model in Honda's popular lineup.
Leasing a car is typically ideal for consumers who want to swap vehicles frequently. During the Honda Days event, the 2012 Accord features a great lease deal for those car shoppers, or anyone interested in getting a brand-new car with a low monthly payment. That's because a 2012 Accord LX sedan with a 5-speed automatic transmission is available to qualified buyers through the end of the year for just $199 per month after $1,999 due at signing. For car shoppers who want something with a little more flair, the automaker is also offering its sporty Accord EX coupe for just $249 per month with the same amount due up front.
Looking to have a little fun on the road? The newest Honda Civic offers a sporty Si trim level, which features a high-revving 201-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a standard 6-speed manual transmission. Available as a sedan or coupe, the Civic Si can hit 60 miles per hour from a standing stop in just 6.5 seconds and records quarter-mile times of around 15 seconds flat. Best of all, during the Happy Honda Days event, the high-performance Civic can be yours with 0.9 percent financing for up to 36 months, or 1.9 percent for 60 months - a great deal on an exciting new car.
If it's a unique family hauler you're looking for, Honda's unusual Crosstour may fit the bill just right. Featuring front- or optional all-wheel drive, the Crosstour offers a muscular 271-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that gives it poise in nearly any driving condition, yet still manages a miserly 18 miles per gallon in city driving and 27 mpg on the highway. During the Honda Days event, the hatchback can be leased for just $259 per month with $3,199 due at signing, or - like most of the automaker's vehicles - financed with rates starting as low as 0.9 percent for qualified buyers. To us, both are great deals on a new car with a starting price of around $30,000.
Honda recently showed off a fully redesigned new CR-V, which means there are great deals available on the current model. During the Honda Days event, the automaker is advertising lease prices on the compact SUV starting at just $219 per month with $1,999 due at signing, or interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 36 months. That's a great deal on the popular, stylish small SUV, which counts a 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, standard 5-speed automatic transmission, tremendous build quality and legendary reliability as just a few of its many strengths.
Although Honda's perennial family hauler was recently redesigned, the automaker is including it in this year's Honda Days event with attractive lease deals and financing offers. According to Honda, car shoppers interested in an Odyssey LX can lease the minivan starting at $299 per month with $1,999 due at signing. Alternatively, consumers looking to finance the 2012 Odyssey can take advantage of interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for 36 months, or 1.9 percent for up to 60 months. Both offers strike us as appealing, especially considering the Odyssey's powerful V6 engine, highway fuel economy of nearly 30 miles per gallon and standard curtain side airbags with rollover deployment.
For residents of the Snow Belt, a minivan may not suffice - and that's where Honda's brawny Pilot SUV comes in. During the Honda Days event, the automaker says car shoppers can lease a Pilot LX for just $289 per month with $1,999 due at signing, or take advantage of interest rates as low as 0.9 percent for up to 36 months. Need a little more traction and higher ground clearance? Honda's tough Ridgeline pickup is also available with the same interest rates, which extend up to 60 months at 1.9 percent. Both models feature the same powerful V6 and 5-speed automatic transmission, and utilize a car-based chassis for a smooth ride.
