, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 14, 2019

Financing rates from Audi have actually improved. In most cases, you'll now find vehicles listed at 4.99% for 66 months (down from 5.29%). However, the automaker's Season of Audi Credit is no longer available. Previously, you could get an extra $1,000 off select models.

Lease prices remain nearly unchanged in January. Offers start at $349/month for the 2019 Audi A3, which isn't exactly cheap. At that price, you may find the larger A4 to be a better deal at $379/month. SUVs like the Q5 continue to start at $449/month.

In places like California, you'll also find unadvertised dealer incentives to help lower prices. The A4 Sedan features an impressive $3,000, plus a $750 loyalty incentive for current Audi customers. The popular Q7 offers between $1,500 and $2,500 in savings, with the best discounts on 3.0T Prestige styles.

Offers are available nationally unless noted otherwise and expire January 31, 2019.

Insider Tips for Audi Shoppers

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.
