Our customers fall in love their European cars because they incorporate great visual appeal and styling, excellence in engineering and reliability as standard features. 2016 was a tough market for new car sales in Australia, but European cars managed to either maintain or sightly improve their position.
First of all, the accolades… The ŠKODA Octavia was voted Best Family Car under $30,000 in 2016. It was also voted Car of the Year 2016 by Car Sales for its practicality, great safety record and outstanding value.
Three models of the ŠKODA Superb also scored an impressive 9 out of 10 rating from Car Advice in their online car review.
We think the ŠKODA range may just be one of Australia’s best kept secrets. Often described as the thinking buyer’s Euro choice, ŠKODA offers more room and comfort and better performance than the competition in its class. With top quality finish throughout and many accessories fitted as standard, ŠKODA is hard to beat.
Award winning Audi
Loved by all who drive them here in Australia, Audi’s have cleaned up the competition in Europe winning the German Design Award (2016), two wins for Audi models in “Best Cars 2017” and two models finished triumphantly in the 2016 Golden Steering Wheel awards.
In the 2016 Carsales Car of the Year – one of Australia’s most prestigious and respected vehicle awards. Audi won in three categories of the 2016 Carsales Car of the Year awards. The A3 Sportback e-tron, all-new A4 Sedan and the new Q7 SUV each winning their specific classes.
Although it struggled a little in the tough Australian market in 2016, Volkswagen managed to remain in the top ten of Australia’s best-selling car sales charts, selling 56,570 new cars in 2016.
There’s no denying VW’s are still award winning cars. Crowned 2016 Cars Guide Car of the Year, Drive Car of the Year and Drive Best SUV of its size. The Tiguan, with its 5-star ANCAP safety rating, stylish new design, spacious interior and advanced technology was hard to beat.
The ever-popular multi-award winning Golf is set for great things with new models expected to arrive mid-year.
