Should I Buy a Car from 2021 or 2022? | Lakeland, FL

Should I Buy a 2021 or 2022 Audi in Lakeland, FL?

Shopping at the end of the model year can be exciting — many models come with exceptional offers, and we know our customers from North and South Lakeland, Orlando and Tampa love a good surprise. But it can also make our guests wonder if they should choose this year’s model or buy the latest release? It’s a great question to consider, and while there are big benefits to both options, the right choice will depend on your priorities. What do we mean? Find out below when you read up on whether you should buy a new 2021 or new 2022 Audi from us at Audi Lakeland.

2021 Models Are Priced to Move

Towards the holidays and the start of the new year, you’ll notice that many new 2021 Audi models leftover in our inventory will be paired with either manufacturer incentives or our very own monthly specials . Why? We’re gearing up for the influx of new 2022 inventory, so we’ll be motivated to sell the rest of our 2021 Audi models to make room. If you’re looking for offers like 0% APR financing, $0-down leases or cash back, wait to purchase a new 2021 Audi model for an offer you won’t want to refuse.

How Long Do You Plan on Owning the Car?

Another factor to consider when deciding to buy a 2021 or 2022 Audi is how long you plan on owning your car. If you prefer to keep your car every few years to trade or sell, you’ll probably have better luck selling the newest model. You could receive a higher trade-in value for your 2022 Audi over a 2021 model, and, depending on their budget, buyers like to see a newer model year anyway. Planning on driving your new Audi until it can’t run anymore? Purchase the new 2021 model — it won’t make that big of a difference long term, and you’ll find that it will most likely be less upfront.

When Only the Latest and Greatest Will Do

However, when the latest from the 2022 lineup is released, these new models often come with upgrades in safety, technology, style and performance capabilities. Maybe what was once available on higher trims becomes standard on base trims with the latest model year, so if those upgrades are appealing, consider buying a 2022 Audi instead. After all, you should love the car you’re driving, so don’t settle for something you know you won’t enjoy. Do your research to make sure those 2022 upgrades are worth it, and if you need any further assistance in your decision, let our team know.
