The change means Audi now matches rivals including Mercedes-Benz and Volvo, while leaving BMW in the cold with three years of coverage
German luxury carmaker Audi announced today that it will adopt a five year, unlimited kilometre warranty in Australia.
The change sees the brand ditch its previous three years of coverage for five, reflecting a length of warranty that has become an industry standard in Australia over the past several years.
Announced today on January 10 but applying to all new Audi vehicles sold from January 1 2022, all Audi vehicles sold in Australia will benefit from five years of coverage, including Audi Sport’s S and RS ranges plus the brand’s electric E-tron line.
A Volkswagen Group brand, Audi’s five year warranty now reflects the same length of coverage offered by its cousins including Volkswagen and Skoda. Skoda recently trialled a Kia-matching seven-year warranty as an additional purchase incentive.
The warranty includes membership of Audi’s roadside assist program, and beyond the warranty, roadside membership is lengthened by a year every time the vehicle is serviced with an Audi dealer.
For extra cost, buyers are able to option five year service plans with the purchase of a new Audi in Australia.
