If you're searching for a new luxury car, the end of the year is a great time to do it. That's proven by our list of luxury car deals, which highlights some of the top incentives and special offers available this month on a few of our favorite models.
The Acura ILX is a compact 4-cylinder luxury sedan based on the Honda Civic. In December, it's offered with incentives for shoppers looking to lease or finance. For qualified drivers who want to finance a 2014 ILX, Acura is offering 0.9 percent interest for up to 60 months. Those who would prefer to lease can take advantage of two deals. For the lowest possible monthly payment, drivers can put down $2,499 on a base-level ILX and get payments from $209 per month for 36 months. Meanwhile, drivers who would rather put nothing down can get a 36-month term with payments starting at $270 per month.
BMW 3 Series
The BMW 3 Series is a sporty 4-door sedan available with rear- or all-wheel drive. In December, it's offered with lease incentives and low-interest financing. For drivers looking to finance a 2014 3 Series, BMW is touting interest rates as low as 2.99 percent for 36 months -- a better offer than BMW's usual deals, which typically range from 3.49 percent to 3.99 percent. BMW also has a deal for drivers looking to lease. Through the end of the month, drivers can lease a 2014 BMW 320i for 36 months with $3,754 down and payments from just $279 per month. That represents savings of $80 per month over the 328i.
The LaCrosse is Buick's largest sedan, sized to compete with comfortable 4-doors such as the Toyota Avalon and Ford Taurus. In December, it's available with incentives for shoppers looking to lease, finance or pay with cash. For buyers paying in full, Buick has two offers available: $2,500 cash back for a 2013 LaCrosse or $500 cash back for a 2014 model. For qualified buyers looking to finance, Buick also has two deals: 0 percent for up to 60 months for a 2013 model or 1.9 percent for 60 months for a 2014 LaCrosse. But the best deal may be for lease shoppers, as Buick is touting payments from $329 per month for an alluring 24 months after just $1,539 down on a well-equipped 2014 LaCrosse.
The Infiniti Q50 is an all-new sport sedan with high-end appointments and a powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine. In December, Infiniti is offering the Q50 with two lease incentives for shoppers interested in a luxury car with a low monthly payment. For drivers who want a rear-wheel-drive Q50, Infiniti is touting payments from $369 per month for 39 months after $3,999 down at lease signing. Drivers who need the year-round security of all-wheel drive can also get a 39-month lease with payments from $369, though the Q50 AWD requires $4,399 down at lease signing.
The midsize Jaguar XF offers rear- or all-wheel drive, a long list of amenities and classic Jaguar styling. In December, it's offered with two lease deals. For drivers who want the lowest possible payment, Jaguar is touting a $439-per-month deal on its 4-cylinder 2013 XF 2.0T. The offer requires a 36-month term and $4,235 down at lease signing. Drivers who need all-wheel drive can also get a deal, as Jaguar is offering the V6-powered XF AWD for 36 months with payments from $539 per month after the same $4,235 down as the rear-wheel-drive 4-cylinder model.
