I'm pretty surprised there are lease deals subsidized by Audi since it's an old model year. Generally in the industry, after January 1 rolls buy, old model year lease deals end, and any incentive is a cash rebate made to the buyer (or dealer) as the final discount to move the car. Usually this is because the manufacturer has little interest in leasing 2018 and 2019 cars as the same time when the residual rates should be dramatically different...hence why I assumed leasing a 2018 made for crazy-high payments that would make no sense. There must be such a glut of 2018s that Audi realizes selling them will be very hard, because who will buy them when the resale value will be so poor? I can see some killer lease deals might move them, but that means Audi is going to loose a lot of money at lease end, because the residual won't reflect the value of the car remotely. Still.....I can't image someone wanting an old design from a decade ago when the new cars is 100% redone from the wheels up. Luckily for Audi there are still some of those buyers out there I guess...

For people who keep the cars long term, which is a substantial amount of new Audi owners, especially on the exec level cars, the up front discount will offset the long term depreciation. After ~8 ish years, the values between the 19 and similarly equipped 18 will be extremely close to one another.

Audi insures themselves against actual market residual differences.

There are always some who simply prefer the older aesthetics....or, don't love the new one enough to let the incentive pass them by. Most of mine sold thusfar (I'm down to just a handful now) were cash purchases fwiw. So far, only 1 was a lease, being delivered next week. The residual isn't strong, but, the discount is, and the money factor is extremely light, especially on the 3.0 models

I'm a bit torn on this one. I have been thinking about trading my 2016 S7 for a 2018 RS7 rather than waiting to see what the C8 version of the S7/RS7 really is. The incentives on the left-over RS7s are almost to good to pass up.

It's almost impossible to just look by region tbh, takes a ton of work. I can do it within a specified distance of me, or nationwide. Nationwide there are 48 S7's

As with all of these, some might already be sold, and awaiting delivery

I've found 6 RS7s in the Greater Boston area, the one I may pursue is in Florida.....

I bought a 2018 A6 in Dec at a discount of over 21 % off sticker. That was just too good to pass up as I never would have considered the car otherwise. The 2019 are getting rather lukewarm reviews for the change from supercharged to turbocharged. Coming from a 2010 MB I have no complaints so far and I prefer the PRNDL shifter to the electronic ones and I really am not a fan of touchscreens. Different horses etc.

Hello. Brand new to the forum. 2018 deals on the A6 were ridiculous. I wasn’t in the market for a new (was going to wait a year) however getting a $56k msrp Audi for $41k is a no brainer. I leased a 2007 A4 and loved it. Told myself one day I will get an A6. That day came Jan1st.
yeah, i hear the debates of getting an old model when the new ones are out, however...$65k for a ‘19 vs. $41k? Since I plan on keeping the car for 10 years . Saved a bundle upfront , not worried about the depreciation 10 yes from now. I am very happy with my decision. Love driving the car. 2.0 is enough power for me. Next... 10yr. 100k warranty. Going to pull the trigger on that very soon.
