Mercedes has been leasing the Q3 for the last two years for the purpose of offering a discount to buyers who want a car that’s less expensive.
The car is priced between $150,000 and $170,000 for a two-year lease, but with a special deal that allows the car to be leased for up to 30 days without payment.
It’s not clear how many Mercedes lease specials the Audi has offered.
Mercedes’ new Q3 is one of the most powerful and luxurious models in its lineup, with a 3.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds.
It can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph in 6.2 seconds and go from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds.
The Q3 comes with a standard five-year Mercedes warranty, which includes an extended 24/7/365 service and warranty coverage.
The Q3 also has a 10-year mechanical warranty.
