While it is true that luxury vehicles are, by definition, more expensive than the non-luxury brands, that doesn’t mean there is not an entire group of consumers that could own an Audi vehicle if they understood that there were plenty of used models from recent years available for under $30,000.

If most of us had our way, we would drive nothing but convertibles, like the 2014 Audi S5, all summer long. It is not as though anything is wrong with cars featuring traditional roofs, but this time of year in particular the temptation for rolling back a car’s lid and really feeling the rush of the wind in one’s hair is almost too much to ignore. Summer is the season for convertibles, and we here at Audi Melbourne just so happen to sell one of the best of them in the business. Continue reading
We can all probably go ahead and admit that the 2014 model year has been an undeniably enjoyable one, both for your friendly neighborhood Audi dealership and the loyal customers that shop there. Still, there really is nothing quite like the onset of a new model year and all the brand new and updated models that come along with that changing of the guard.
Of course, “2015” in automotive terms is not quite as universal as it is on the Roman calendar. Automakers can sprinkle their new releases throughout the 2014 calendar year, giving us plenty to look forward nearly every month of the year. Continue reading
Every Audi dealership in America has been waiting patiently for the refreshed 2015 Audi A8 for almost a year now, but now that it is finally arriving onto lots we can say with plenty of confidence that it was, in fact, worth the wait.

Here is a quick rundown of the changes our customers can expect in the new 2015 Audi A8: Continue reading
Obviously, we here at Audi Melbourne believe that the cars on our showroom floor are beautiful. Luxury cars are supposed to be pretty, after all, but that does not stop die-hard autophiles from taking the time to sit and debate which brands design the most aesthetically-pleasing machines.
Our own opinion is obviously very biased, but the people over at Gear Patrol had no reason to be when they listed the 2014 Audi A7 as one of ten vehicles mentioned among their “Present Perfect” feature, which lists what they believe are ten modern automotive designs that “nailed it.” Continue reading
The “U” in “SUV” stands for “utility,” which suggests that when a consumer purchases one of these automobiles they are doing so because they need a vehicle that can do work. It would have to have plenty of seating and cargo space, obviously, to haul around kids and all of the stuff that comes with them, and in some cases that work would also include towing trailers or boats, grocery shopping, cross-country vacation travel, and any of a number of other jobs that a SUV may be asked to do.

We will start by saying that the 2015 Audi R8 LMX supercar is not necessarily going to be a “mainstream” automobile in its latest iteration, as cars that run off only 99 copies typically consider themselves more like special collectors’ editions than everyday run-of-the-mill automobiles.
Limited run aside, the R8 is making headlines this month by being the first production vehicle to feature laser headlights, further improving the brand’s strong reputation as an innovator in the field of technology. Continue reading
Technology in today’s vehicle is a beautiful thing, particularly as it pertains to in-car entertainment and navigation with real-time traffic, but not all Audi customers realize how much they can do with that in-car technology when they’re outside of their vehicles, especially if they own an Apple or Android smartphone.
By downloading the free MMI Connect app, smartphone users are putting a whole new set of technological tools at their disposal. Here are a few of the cooler things the app can do: Continue reading
The World Car of the Year award is one of the most prestigious accolades that an automobile can win in today’s industry, and we here at Audi Melbourne are happy to report that when the award was announced at this year’s New York International Auto Show, the all-new 2015 Audi A3 was the vehicle that came out on top.
