If you feel like you need even another reason to love your Audi, you might want to know that Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com acknowledged Audi as the best luxury brand vehicle for total cost of ownership in a report recently released in August. Based on factors impacting post-purchase values of new vehicles, the 2012 Audi A3 2.0T and 2012 Audi A4 2.0T models lead the pack with remarkable fuel economy and minimal depreciation after purchase.
Using Kelley Blue Book Residual Values, kbb.com evaluates the total cost of the initial five-year ownership period for new automobiles. Several factors including depreciation value, expected fuel and insurance costs, as well as maintenance, repair and state fees are considered and calculated into the resulting rankings. The increased power and efficiency from the award-winning Audi 2.0 TFSI engine in the 2012 Audi Lineup means your Audi will hold its value for years to come.
While Kelley Blue Book just recently launched their Total Cost of Ownership with the redesign of kbb.com in early 2011, the fact that an Audi will maintain its value longer than any other luxury brand is not new news to the roughly 1,300,000 people worldwide who have chosen the Audi 2.0 TFSI engine. For a 2012 Audi, kbb.com gauged via calculations an initial five-year cost of ownership of less than $70,000, less than all competition by over $5,000.
It's quite obvious that the quality of Audi engineering survives the test of time.
