As we near the end of the year, we thought we’d put together a list of some of the most popular luxury and premium vehicle of the year.
Starting off with Audi, this year the new Q2 and RS3 sedan have both been very popular in Australia.
Audi is notorious for correctly addressing gaps in the market, and the Q2 is an excellent example of this. The interior is similar to the A3, and the base model comes equipt with Audi Connect, which includes an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot, Google search, Google Street View and Google Earth.
These have successfully attracted a younger crowd as a cheaper entry point into a premium brand.
The RS3 sedan has been a surprising one this year given its $84K price tag. We have had a number inquiries from clients as a result of some fantastic online reviews detailing the incredible engine note (produced by a 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbocharged engine), In-gear acceleration, excellent fuel economy and updated brakes.
From one German company to the next BMW has had some winners this year with the new X3 and 5-series.
In Australia, BMW’s SUV range has been prevalent. But with an increased demand for smaller 4×4’s the company has focussed heavily on strengthening and refining its X3, so much so that the 2018 model is said to be BMW’s best selling car. Impressive interior leg and headroom. As expected the X3 is receiving a lot of praise for its class-leading technology and connectivity
Now to the executive saloon, the new 5 series BMW is available in four different classes and even with the $93,900 entry point dealers are receiving orders left, right and centre.
Australia’s seem to have a soft spot for the Land Rover brand. This year we have been inundated with inquiries about the the new Discovery TD6 and the smaller Discovery Sport. Both new vehicles have incredible off-road capabilities and a sleek facelift.
The new Velar is probably the biggest head turner from the company this year. The entry-level model is priced from $70,662 plus on-road costs and boasting equipment such as auto headlights and wipers, electric park brake, torque vectoring, hill-descent control, hill launch assist, gradient release control, cornering brake control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, and trailer stability assist.
Back to Germany, the Mercedes-AMG E45 although starting at an eye-watering $159,900 has been remarkably popular including all the usual E class luxuries like Nappa Leather upholstery, Air-Balance package, AMG body styling, AMG 4Matic all-wheel drive, 20-inch AMG wheels, a sports exhaust system and a sports braking system.
Leaving Germany and heading north to Sweden the Volvo XC90 has been another stand out amongst our client base this year. The T6 R and D5 the two most popular models. For the price point, Volvo leaves the others in the dust for cabin design and materials and space and practicality.
