, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 10, 2018

Just about every new Audi on dealer lots is a 2018 model at this point. Special offers in January have taken a dive after last month's holiday sale, which added a bonus and complimentary 1st payment.

As a result, leases have become more expensive. Offers now start at $389/month for the 2018 A3. Interestingly, the Q3 has a higher MSRP but is actually cheaper to lease at $359/month with a lower effective monthly cost.

The brand's loyalty discount is worth $1,000, but now requires you to finance through Audi Financial. To qualify, you'll have to be a current owner or lessee of any 2005 or newer Audi.

Sadly, there are no special discounts for switching brands. In the past, "Acquisition Bonuses" worth up to $1,000 were available to those coming from luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and others.

Audi specials are available nationally and expire January 31, 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.
