2021 Audi Q5 sportback

, ,

Hi! Ya’ll

I stepped into a dealer today just for test driving purposes and spotted a 2021 audi q5 sportback, they are saying $5k down 10k miles for $600 the window sticker is $51k. I am in Fairfield county, CT

I am wondering if this this a good deal or I could find better out there? Open to working with a broker if we can find something better here :slight_smile:

It is practically impossible for us to tell you what a “good” monthly payment is for your specific lease as lease programs are highly dependent on region, personal qualifications, tax rates, etc.

We always recommend the following method before you ever contact a dealership. If you do all of the work up front, you’ll have a stress free dealer experience and set yourself for success.

  1. Read Leasing 101 (EDITORIAL | LEASEHACKR) to understand how to calculate a lease payment and the variables. Monthly payment is an output, not an input!!
  2. Pick a specific vehicle that you want to target
  3. Gather the current MF, RV and incentives from Edmunds forums for your zip code
  4. Research the LH marketplace and other deals that have been made recently on your vehicle - what was their pre-incentive discount? How did their lease terms differ?
  5. Plug your numbers into the LH calculator (CALCULATOR | LEASEHACKR), and use a pre-incentive discount similar to what you have seen
  6. Create a target deal, this is what you’re trying to negotiate to. You can try different terms, selling price discount, etc. and see how your monthly payment is affected. It is also possible that different trims of your vehicle may have different MF and RV (i.e. this is very common with GM), so make sure that you look into that. Come up with a set of inputs that give you the output that you want - your desired monthly payment.

With a target price determined, you now have a deal to pursue and compare dealer offers against. More importantly, you have a solid foundation to work from.


You should work off the assumption that whatever deal you were offered when you were at the dealership is bad. Now you need to do your homework and find out what the RV, MF, and incentives are (go to Edmunds for that) and then look on this site to see what others paid for the Q5 Sportback. Once you have all of that info, start emailing dealers who have one in stock what your deal is. You should check in the Marketplace section for brokers who work in CT and have Audis.
