Audi, a sister-concern of Volkswagen Group, came into existence in 1930 in Germany. Based out of Ingolstadt, the German auto manufacturer designs produces, markets, distributes and sells luxury cars in most of the countries worldwide. The premium automaker sells cars ranging from hatchbacks, executive saloons, roadsters, SUVs to cabriolets. The cheapest Audi car, the Audi A3, costs around Rs 33.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). In India, not everyone can afford to buy such an expensive car. Therefore, people who are fascinated by luxury cars can go for used Audi cars. While the quality remains intact even after years, the prices of second-hand Audi cars do degrade swiftly just like any other luxury car.

Audi Resale Value
Audi has one of the highest resale values among luxury carmakers in the Indian market. In India, the number of pre-owned Audi cars is less as compared to vehicles of any other brand. Therefore, the second hand Audi car price is slightly higher than any of its competitors. There are many reasons why Audi car second-hand price is high. Among others, its impeccable German built and fast growing dealership outlets are prime reasons. Most times, the ride quality and handling of Audi pre-owned cars remain intact due to its strong built and long term assurance of the automaker.
In India, the economic status of the general public isn’t on the higher side and therefore only people residing in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore own the majority of Audi cars than any tier 1 or tier 2 cities of the country. This is one of the prime reasons why pre-owned Audi cars are in demand in fast-growing cities like Jaipur, Chandigarh, Kanpur, etc.
People usually prefer opting for luxury cars from the second-hand market as it gives them the bonus of having one at almost half the prices of the new one. There’s no capping on the minimum resale value of second hand Audi car and it all depends on the present condition of the vehicle. The resale market for Audi certified pre-owned cars is lofty. If an individual has one of these expensive vehicles, they are presumed to have a lavish standard of living and therefore, the running of such cars are less as they are rarely used for day to day commuting. These people can sell their used Audi cars at a decent price with the help of websites like CARS24.
