Acura Puts You in the Driver’s Seat: Unveiling a Streamlined Pre-Owned Leasing Calculator for CPO Vehicles


Acura Launches User-Friendly Pre-Owned Leasing Calculator on AcuraCertified.com, Expanding Options for Premium Used Car Shoppers

Acura is revolutionizing the pre-owned car market with its Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) leasing program, providing a new avenue for discerning buyers to access premium vehicles with flexible terms. The brand introduces an easy-to-use pre-owned vehicle leasing calculator on AcuraCertified.com, simplifying the online shopping experience for potential customers.

Acura’s CPO leasing initiative offers clients the flexibility to adjust down payments, thereby lowering monthly payments. This allows customers to upgrade to larger or more feature-rich Acura models while navigating the rising prices of new cars. The leasing program covers current model year Acura CPO vehicles or those from 2018 to 2023, providing a range of options. At the end of the lease term, customers can choose to purchase the vehicle or return it to an Acura dealer.

Dan Rodriguez, Senior Manager of Auto Remarketing at American Honda, notes, “Acura’s new Certified Pre-Owned leasing program is perfect for buyers looking for ways to drive a premium performance vehicle without paying a premium price. Higher new-vehicle prices make leasing an Acura certified used vehicle an even more critical gateway for first-time premium buyers.”

This initiative builds upon Acura’s commitment to its certified pre-owned program, following the recent introduction of Acura Precision Used. This extension now includes used vehicles aged 6 to 10 years in the Acura CPO family, making Acura the first luxury brand to offer certified used vehicles for up to 10 years old. Acura’s CPO sales have experienced remarkable growth in 2023, with a 33% increase, outpacing key competitors.

Acura Earns Two Class Victories and Sets Record at 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Acura Earns Two Class Victories and Sets Record at 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Acura Earns Two Class Victories and Sets Record at 2017 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb

Acura entries were victorious at the 95th running of The Broadmoor Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this past weekend. Making its first run to the 14,115-foot summit, the TLX GT, driven by long-time Acura race car driver Peter Cunningham, set a new Open Class record with a time of 9:33.797, finishing second overall and earning Cunningham “Rookie of the Year” honors for the annual event. The 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec, making its racing debut, won the top spot in the Exhibition Class with a time of 11:03.655, while the production-based NSX with GT3-inspired modifications earned a podium finish in 10:03.433, taking third place in the Time Attack 1 class.

“Just an incredible month of June was had by RealTime Racing in Colorado. Today’s result on the hill is the culmination of a ton of hard work by my team and the Honda Performance Development group,” said Cunningham. “The No. 42 Acura TLX GT achieved 100 percent reliability and great speed, including the time that mattered today on our one 12.42-mile run from the 9,390-foot start line to the 14,115-foot summit. “Congratulations to my Acura teammates Nick Robinson, securing the Exhibition Class title, and James Robinson, bringing home a podium in his Time Attack 1 NSX,” continued Cunningham. “A fantastic day for Acura at Pikes Peak!”

“I couldn’t be happier with our finish today with the Time Attack 1 NSX,” said James Robinson. “Our time of 10:03 was very close to our goal to get a mass production NSX under 10 minutes. I think this speaks directly to the effectiveness of the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. In addition, we were able to get a third place in the Time Attack 1 class, and 7th fastest car overall.

“I’m very proud to say that we were able to give the brand-new 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec its first win here at Pikes Peak,” said Nick Robinson. “Combined with Peter’s win in the Open Class, I think we’ve really shown the Precision Crafted Performance of the TLX here at America’s Mountain!”

This is the sixth consecutive year that Acura has raced vehicles in the Pikes Peak event.
