, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 6, 2018

Audi is offering a Season of Audi Credit worth up to $1,000 on select models. It's a bonus you can get when buying or leasing a new car or SUV. Eligible vehicles include the 2018 A3, A4, A5 Sportback, Q5 and Q7. The best deal is the Q7 due in part to what's happening behind the scenes.

At the same time, Audi is giving dealers something called a Marketing Allowance. It's essentially a form of dealer cash that can be used to help lower prices. In the case of the Q7 3.0T, it's worth an additional $2,000, which means there's now a total of $3,000 in savings available.

Advertised lease deals from Audi start at $329/month for the A3 and range up to $599/month for the Q7. Having said that, 2019 models are either starting to arrive or can be pre-ordered from the factory. With a ton of redesigns for 2019, you may find them worth the wait.

Offers are available nationally and expire November 30, 2018.

Insider Shopping Tips

Audi rarely offers cash incentives like mainstream automakers. Instead, it often uses unadvertised incentives that the automaker calls Marketing Allowances that help dealers provide competitive pricing so as not to diminish brand image as well as resale values.

Holiday promos like Season of Audi can be a great time to buy or lease, with perks like bonus cash and complimentary payment offers. It's also not unusual to see loyalty discounts as well as so-called Acquisition Bonuses, a type of conquest bonus targeting those coming from other luxury brands.

Advertised lease specials can be spotty, meaning that Audi doesn't always list leases for every single vehicle. In those instances, you can still lease but it'll likely be a less-attractive deal than other models that you'll have to obtain a quote for with your local dealer.
