The new Audi Centre is not only pride of place on the roundabout, it’s about to host the new TT.
New home, new model! It’s an exciting time for Audi with the opening of the new $3 million Audi Centre Indooroopilly in south-west Brisbane situated within the Moggill Road roundabout. Add to this, the much-anticipated TT sports coupe is about to arrive!
Prestige car sales have boomed in Queensland in recent times, as more and more buyers take advantage of the highly competitive Australian car market. Audi ended the year up nearly 50 percent on sales with such an increase is unheard of in a market that is relatively stable overall. The Audi Centre Indooroopilly was opened in January to meet this growing demand.
The 1000sqm facility showcases 60 new and pre-owned Audi vehicles, with 12 service bays with direct drive-in reception to ensure customers are able to easily book their car for scheduled servicing. The facility also boasts a customer lounge that includes free WiFi as well as premium Vittoria Coffee.
Audi Australia’s managing director Andrew Doyle says that the brand has gone from strength to strength in Australia in 2014, with sales growing by 20 per cent nationally this year alone.
“The Audi team is looking forward to seeing the growth that this new state-of-the-art-facility brings,” Doyle says.
“We see tremendous opportunities for Audi in Brisbane and this impressive new dealership signifies how serious we are about meeting the needs of our Queensland customers.”
Audi fans will also be excited to know Audi’s third-generation TT sports coupe will roll into showrooms very shortly boasting one 2.0 TFSI engine priced from $71,950 for a six speed manual. Soon to follow will be the auto and Quattro variants.
Doyle is confident that if interest expressed is any indication, the new TT sports coupe will be the best-selling of that model to date.
“We’re close to 250 orders already placed for the TT which is not only a true sportscar but a technology leader.”
