Audi was almost the first to increase leases that were laughable. I special ordered my S60, and my lease was price protected. I have had a 2016 Audi TT and a 2018 R8 V10 lease, so I was considering an TTS or S4 before I ordered the Volvo. Since I'm good friends with the Audi salesmen I had them check on some leases. A BASE A4 on a 3 year lease was $990/month, and the TTS was $1,300/month. It was just insane. My TT lease had been $650/month and my R8 V10 had been $1,800/month. The comparisons between what changed in a matter of months was just insane. I'm afraid the days of leasing are over, or at least for a while. I'm like you...I have less than 1 year on my lease, and right now you are looking at 30-40% payment increase. It's financial suicide at these rates.I leased a V60 Inscription in May 2021 and the MF is something like .00028.
that’s insane how Crazy it is now. I’m looking to get a V60PE at year end/early next year with my leasing coming up, but we will see. Curious what powertrain options Americans are getting with the new A4 Avant which might sway me to Audi.
