Now is the Ideal Time to Purchase an Audi


Is now the right time to purchase an Audi? Whether your dream car is a 2020 A8 Horch or an RS Q8, you might not know if this is the best time to put those brand new keys into your pocket. Right now might in fact be the perfect time to purchase an Audi, used or new. But, Why?


Financing and Incentives

During the COVID lockdown many car dealerships were unable to move their inventory as they were forced to close. Because of that, cars that would normally sit on dealership lots for a month have been there between two and four months.


Many dealerships are now open and looking to move their inventory, so they may offer special financing and incentives that they might otherwise save for special events. Many incentives are not just discounts off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price but include things like cashback on new vehicles as well.


Larger Savings

If you had intended on purchasing a vehicle several months ago but were unable to do so with so many dealerships closing during the pandemic, you may have saved extra cash that you normally would have put towards other purchases. With so many people in lockdown, many individuals were not able to purchase things they normally would have for entertainment. What that may mean for you is that you can afford a slightly nicer car since your down payment may be several more months of savings. Instead of opting for a generic family car, you may be able to afford a vehicle closer to your “Dream Car.”


Ease of Purchase, Especially for Introverts

If you’re a bit of an introvert, or simply don’t like the typical car-buying experience that often comes with dealership and salesmen, you’re in for a treat. If you’re arranging to purchase a car right now, many aspects can take place right from your couch. From securing financing to even arranging for a test drive, you don’t have to physically walk in right now. Instead of waiting for a salesman to let you take an Audi for a test drive on a busy afternoon at the dealership, you can simply schedule that test drive online.


Is It Safe to Buy a Car Now?

It can be nerve-wracking when thinking about interacting with people in close quarters during a pandemic. If you have any fears about buying or test-driving a vehicle, contact various car dealerships first to see what protocols they are putting into place to keep you and their staff safe. Ideally, the dealership should be following distancing and sanitization protocols, and you may want to check to see if they are only taking customers into their showrooms by scheduled appointments.


If you are in a financial position to replace your existing vehicle, now may be a perfect time to upgrade or trade-in your car. With incentives and ease of purchase, it can be easy to overbuy, so make sure you’re satisfied with your vehicle before taking the plunge.
