, Senior Pricing Analyst - April 8, 2018

Audi has changed things up by introducing rare cash incentives on many of its vehicles. You can now save $1,500 on popular models like the A3 or A4, or as much as $2,500 off the A8.

The catch is that the offers can't be combined with special rates or any bonuses associated with financing. As before, leases start at just $359/month for the 2018 A3 Sedan.

Unfortunately, rates and offers on the brand's SUVs are considerably worse than the cars. There are also no standard rebates and no special bonuses for coming from a competitor.

Thinking of buying a used Audi? This month, the brand is offering 2.99% financing on most pre-owned vehicles, although the best rates favor the sedans over the SUVs.

Audi specials are available nationally and expire April 30, 2018.

Tips on Audi Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

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.
