Buying New

The benefits of choosing to purchase a new vehicle over a pre-owned one come down to choice, interest rates, and an overall peace-of-mind.

When you have narrowed down the particular Audi model you want to purchase, buying new will give you more freedom in the choice of vehicle. Usually, there is a variety of choices in colour, trim, and options for the vehicle in question that can easily be found in stock. However, if the particular combination you desire is not in stock anywhere, a factory order is always possible. This allows you to configure your Audi exactly the way you want it.

When it finally comes time to purchase your Audi, you will find that interest rates will generally be lower when financing or leasing compared with an equivalent pre-owned. This is a huge benefit when looking at paying off principal amounts through monthly payments. Less of a portion of your monthly payments go into paying interest and more goes into paying into the loan amount. Flexibility in amortization rates, residual amounts, and length of term make buying new a more dynamic solution for those that require monthly payments.

Lastly, purchasing a new vehicle means that you do not have to worry about how the previous owner maintained or treated it. Your Audi will come fresh off the showroom floor, ready for its new owner. Moreover, you also get to fully maximize the benefit of owning your Audi throughout its entire warranty period, making for a worry-free ownership experience.
