Audi Line Up

The American division of Audi is proudly announced that they successfully scored new annual sales figures. The figures are 102,055 units just one month before the 2011 ends which mean that these figures are already exceed the 2010 record where the German automaker managed to sell 101,629 units. Hmmm… it seems like the efforts that have been put up by the VW Group is starting to show some result.

In US, Audi has to struggle to compete with local brands such as Chevrolet and Ford although those two are challenging each other on the pickup truck market segment. The new record US sales in every month have also been some kind of additional sprit for Audi to score better and better sales figures on the upcoming months. The November 2011 sales record will be announced somewhere this week to whether Audi successfully scored another record month sales.

The monthly sales figures are not the only achievements Audi are getting now because the German automaker has also scored new sales record through the Certified pre-owned vehicles. According to autoevolution.com, Audi’s registering division scored 33,102 units by then end of Thanksgiving which can be explained as 32% increase over the previous year.

It is very amazing that US division of Audi managed to book record sales figures because right now, the automotive makers in European are hoping that the European economy crisis is not getting worst as the Italian government has announced that they are adding taxes for luxury items because they are about this close to bankruptcy.

Volkswagen Polo R-Line and Passat Executive for German Market Only

VW Polo R-Line and VW Passat Exclusive

The two new vehicles from Volkswagen will definitely make other customers outside Germany jealous. Yup… the VW Polo R-Line and VW Passat Executive are just officially launched for sale on German market only. Could these two vehicles are the same vehicles that VW try to bring to LA Auto Show? The idea of limiting the market for the Polo R-Line coupe hatchback and Passat Executive MPV are to honor the public German for their never ending support for the Das Auto.

For the VW Polo R-Line, the vehicle carries new front and rear bumpers, revised side skirts, rear spoiler, 16- or 17-inch of special rims, and chrome exhaust tips. As for the interior, the Polo R-Line coupe hatchback offers Alcantara and leather finish, sport seats, piano lacquer trimming, new steering wheel, and aluminum pedals. Don’t know about you, but we can’t help it not to think that VW has somehow “vandalized” the interior.

Both for the interior and exterior of the VW Polo R-Line is available in Comfortable and Highline equipment levels. Moving on to the VW Passat Exclusive, this MVP equips with a chocolate Nappa leather finish with white stitching, and the trimming in the form of wood and aluminum. We don’t know for sure why Das Auto does not inform us the official price tag; perhaps to keep the level of jealousy in minimum.
