San Diego, July 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Costco Auto Program and Audi today announced a first-time opportunity for Costco members to purchase or lease select, new Audi models at Audi employee pricing for a limited time.
The Audi Sales Event includes 2020 Audi SUVs, sedans, sportbacks, coupes and convertibles, and the 2019 Audi e-tron. The A3, Q5, RS and R8 models are excluded. According to Costco Auto Program, operated by Affinity Auto Program, positive Costco member response to recent events in 2019 and 2020 showed interest in Audi incentives.
