Audi Australia has announced a longer new-vehicle warranty from 2022.
All models sold from January 1 come with a five-year/unlimited-kilometre peace-of-mind agreement, up two years over the previous period, with roadside assistance also extended to the same term.
“We’ve listened to our customers and are proud to make our five-year warranty a permanent feature of the Audi ownership experience,” said Audi Australia director Paul Sansom.
“There are many aspects of Audi ownership that delight our customers, but we understand that the reassurance of a five-year warranty is very highly regarded. We are pleased to provide this valuable peace of mind for our customers.”
At times, Audi Australia offered a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty as part of sales events, but now it’s full-time across its entire model line-up.
Included are the A1 light hatchback, A3 small car, A4 and A5 mid-size cars, A6 and A7 large cars, A8 upper-large sedan, Q2 and Q3 small SUVs, Q5 mid-size SUV, Q7 and e-tron large SUVs, and Q8 upper-large SUV.
This move draws Audi level with rivals Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Volvo, Jaguar Land Rover and Genesis, all of which already provided five-year/unlimited-kilometre peace-of-mind agreements in Australia.
For reference, BMW is the last ‘big’ premium brand Australia to persist with a three-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty.
As reported, Audi Australia already offered five-year/75,000km capped-price servicing plans with its models.
