Even when we're reluctant to admit it, we all aspire to a bit of luxury in our lives. And at $399 or less, the factory-backed lease deals on luxury vehicles seem almost too good to be true. Almost. But true.

Here are the lease deals on luxury vehicles currently listed by luxury manufacturers that run $399 per month or less. The list ranges from Acura to Mercedes-Benz to Volvo, but let's be realistic. You didn't think Rolls-Royce was running a lease special, did you? And, sorry, that Ferrari you've always dreamt of will be considerably more expensive than this.

All these deals were featured as of October 7, 2014, but not all of them are available in all regions of the United States. For comparison's sake, we've calculated the total cost of each lease to completion and further calculated what each costs per mile, assuming full utilization of the mileage allowance. For more detailed pricing, check out our Price Promise tool.

Not all leases are built exactly the same. Some leases ask for more money up front but have lower monthly payments. Some are the opposite; they entice you with a very low drive-off amount but slightly higher monthly payments. Try to find a lease that strikes a balance of the miles you drive, a low monthly payment and low drive-off fees. Always add up the entire cost of a lease and compare those numbers before deciding. If all this needs clarification or you need to bounce ideas off someone who knows what's going on, don't hesitate to reach out to the Edmunds.com Live Help team for free assistance.

Keep in mind that in order to bring the price of these deals down, luxury vehicle leases tend to have low mileage allowances and additional miles are relatively expensive compared to mainstream vehicles. This month, for instance, all the leases are restricted to between 10,000 and 10,500 miles per year. If you drive more than that, be prepared to negotiate terms that realistically reflect how you will use the vehicle. The last thing you want to do is find out at the end of your lease that you owe thousands in additional mileage charges.

The best deals are available only to customers with superb and glistening credit ratings. If your credit rating doesn't elicit gasps of admiration when the sales manager looks at it, expect to pay more for your lease. And all lessees should remember that these monthly payments do not include sales tax and other fees.

There are subtleties to any and every lease. And tailoring a lease before signing it is the single best way to ensure you'll be happy as long as you're in it — and on your way out of it. But these heavily advertised leases with their discounted factory financing and aggressive pricing are good starting points. So start.

2015 Acura ILX — $209 per month/36 months
Acura's smallest sedan is the second-lowest priced lease deal this month. The $2,399 due at signing is modest and so is the 15 cents per mile charged for additional miles beyond the 30,000 included in the lease. Offer ends November 3.

2015 Acura RDX — $379 per month/36 months
Acura's versatile and comfortable compact SUV can be had at this keen lease price after only $1,999 at signing. Mileage is limited to just 10,000 a year and additional miles are 30 cents each. Offer ends November 3.

2015 Acura TLX — $349 per month/36 months

Offer ends November 3.

2014 Buick Encore — $199 per month/39 months
Buick's small crossover SUV packs a lot of style in a short package. This lease has a somewhat awkward 39-month term and only allows a bit more than 800 miles a month of driving (32,500 miles total). The $4,159 or $2,659 (for current non-GM lessees) due at signing is for the two-wheel-drive, base Encore but seems to differ according to state and location. So some residency restrictions apply. Offer ends November 3.

2015 Lexus IS 250 — $349 per month/27 months

2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive — $379 per month/36 months

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 Coupe — $329 and $349 per month/36 months
