Quattro discontinued

Post by Terrymac51 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:23 pm

Having ordered a 2.0 petrol Quattro in September, with as many bells and whistles as exist, I have now discovered that Q2 Quattros are chopped. I am assured my car will arrive on schedule in March but I am confused and annoyed that nobody at Audi HQ or my Hatfield dealers could be honest with me that I have ordered a now discontinued line. I had to go to Whatcar to prise out the news.

I placed a £1000 deposit. I am worried now that my new car may more rapidly lose value than projected. Especially as it is likely that it carries no brand new emissions certification.

Any ideas?

You might find it goes the other way if sold privately when your ready to part you will have a fairly rare car, yes it won't have the new emissions certification.

Any car produced now has to have the new emissions certificate, WLTP to be precise, regardless of when it was ordered. Your car WILL have the new WLTP cert, Audi wouldn't be able to make it without it!! In fact, google Audi and WLTP problems and you will see many models have been delayed. Expect yours to be too unless the 2.0 petrol engine meets requirements quickly. Probably one reason the Quattro system has been scrapped?

The Quattro system hasn’t been scrapped, Audi just haven’t haven’t made the ‘new’ WTLP certified system available for new orders in the UK.
Audi are honouring all Quattros ordered prior to them removing the option.

The Quattro version is available for order In Germany (unsurprisingly) which shows they have done the necessary testing and certification. Also, the SQ2 will be using the same engine, but more highly tuned. Again this is already available for order In Germany.

I’m collecting my 2.0 TFSI Quattro S Line next Saturday. I ordered it in October.
Even if Audi decide not to re-introduce the Quattro to the UK market I’m not concerned. I think it will make the resale value better due to its ‘rarity’.
