You have plenty of Southern California Audi Dealers to work with when it’s time to buy, lease or have your car serviced.

That includes a total of 28 of them in all.  To be clear that covers the entire region of SoCal.  But when you’re talking about a purchase of Audi-magnitude, it makes sense to cover ALL your options.

About Audi – The Brand

Audi is Volkswagen’s luxury brand.   So the overall Audi vehicle line-up offers many creature comforts, performance, technology, and safety features.

Arguably you can also consider Volkswagen Audi’s non-luxury brand.  Either way, that sibling relationship has its benefits both ways.

For example, Volkswagen benefits from Audi’s luxury focus.  And its development and implementation of the latest technology.  But Audi benefits from Volkswagen’s production volume and larger scale.

Then there’s the Porsche factor.  Because it’s a sibling of both Audi and VW.  And Porsche’s performance focus rubs off on both Audi and Volkswagen.

Additionally, the common thread that weaves between Audi and its two siblings is German engineering.  Call it attention to detail.  But you can also refer to it as fit and finish.

Sometimes Audi and its brethren are accused of being over-engineered.  But, when you get behind the wheel of one.  That precept is easy to appreciate – seriously.

Because as a brand, Audi vehicles are both a thrill and a pleasure to drive.

Audi Brand Image And Resale Value

Audi’s curb appeal is tops among mass-produced luxury vehicles.  BMW and Mercedes-Benz are equivalents.

So, fellow imports from Asia are not quite to Audi’s stature.  That includes Acura, Lexus, Infiniti, and Genesis.  And American luxury (Cadillac and Lincoln) doesn’t quite reach the level of Audi either.

Resale  Value

Because huge amounts of technology and creature comforts are content packed into Audis.  They can get quite pricey to maintain and fix – especially when they’re out of warranty.

But that’s the case for pretty much all vehicles in the brand’s class – BMW and Mercedes-Benz for sure.

New Car Buying Strategy From SoCal Audi Dealers

When it comes to buying a vehicle, again you have lots of Southern California Audi Dealers to work with.  So be sure to find the best situation for you.

Consider factors like location to your home or work.  Plus, the vibe you get when communicating with the dealer representatives.  And of course, the deal you are offered.

Personally, I see Audi’s a vehicle to lease rather than buy.  Because of all the tech and functionality packed into the cars – a lot can go wrong.  Therefore, I prefer to only have the vehicle for a short amount of time.  Especially when it’s all covered under a factory warranty.

Audi Extended Warranty And Service Contracts

All carmakers offer extended warranties.  And whether you’re buying or leasing, and plan to blast through the miles, get the extended warranty.  Just because Audi’s are costly to repair and maintain.

This brings me to my final point.  SoCal Audi Dealers, on behalf of the factory, offer maintenance contracts too.  And this is another add-on to seriously consider during your purchase.

SoCal Audi Dealer Disclaimer

PLEASE NOTE: iDriveSoCal does not endorse any of these dealerships.  Rather, we provide the names and links to dealerships for the ease of contacting different Southern California Audi Dealers.  This way you can find your best deal.

Additionally, next to each name we include the dealers’ ownership information.  Because many dealerships are owned by the same groups.  And the management of these groups often communicates with one another – regularly.

So it’s good to know if you’re negotiating with two SoCal Audi Dealers that share the same ownership. :0)

When it comes to the line-up of Audi vehicles – there are plenty.

And while they’re entirely focused on on-road driving, the brand offers many crossover SUVs.

But with that said, it’s unlikely an Audi SUV buyer will be heading for any hardcore off-road adventures.

Instead, the crossover SUVs that Audi offers are for creature comfort, including the ease of getting in and out of the vehicle.  Plus versatility to haul or tow stuff and the more upright driving position.

Audi Vehicle Line-Up

Audi produces luxury performance sedans, SUVs, and coupes.

And in addition to many trim configurations, the German carmaker offers internal combustion engines, electric vehicles, and hybrids.

In fact, the line-up of Audi’s electric vehicles is experiencing the most growth in the past few years.

Overall, Audi’s vehicle line-up tends to be a bit complex.  So pay close attention, and expect deviations.
