Shopping for pre-owned models can be an excellent way to enjoy Audi’s unique driving experience while also getting the most bang for your buck. That’s because you’ll generally pay fewer of those bucks for used Audis compared to new ones even when both have the same high levels of equipment. And most of the difference is due simply to depreciation, which reduces a car’s value over time regardless of its condition. The bottom line is that the typical new car can often depreciate by some 20% in one year and by more than 60% after five. Beyond saving money on the purchase price, it’s usually less expensive to insure the used Audis for sale in Portland, OR, than it is to cover their new counterparts. This can really add up since auto insurance is one of your highest ongoing ownership costs with nearly any vehicle.
It can also be easier to find the exact Audi you want by considering a pre- owned edition. After all, this is a fairly exclusive brand that doesn’t sell new cars in the same quantity as the usual mass-market companies. But looking at more model years means looking at more Audi models, too.
Audi’s long-time slogan is “Vorsprung durch Technik,” or “progress through technology,” and it’s something that the automaker takes very seriously. As a result, even the used Audis for sale in Portland, OR, offer the kind of high-tech benefits that can make modern-day driving a lot less stressful. You can also pair those digital advantages with the ultra-luxurious amenities you expect from this premium German brand. Just keep in mind that exact features can vary by model and model year.
Used Audis can be especially well-suited for Portland’s often wet conditions thanks to the company’s signature all-wheel-drive systems. These quattro setups are available on many pre-owned Audi cars and SUVs, and the brand also offers its share of drop-top models for when the sun does come out. In fact, the Audis we list here are just a few of our favorites. We’ll be glad to work with you to find a pre-owned Audi that’s not currently on our lot. (Note: Audi’s alphanumeric naming system is easy to understand if you remember that the bigger the number, the bigger the vehicle.)
The company we now know as Audi traces its founding back to a turbulent time in the German auto industry. It all started when August Horch began building cars around the turn of the 20th century under his own name. However, he was forced out of the Horch company and started a new automaker, dubbed Audi, to get back into the business in 1910. Audi — and Horch, plus two other early car brands — then merged to form Auto Union in 1932. Today, the four rings found on Audi brand vehicles represent the four original companies that came together to create Auto Union.
Auto Union was rebooted after World War II and came under the ownership of Daimler-Benz, and the Volkswagen Group took control of the business in the 1960s. By the 1970s, further consolidation in the German auto industry saw the Audi brand re-emerge under VW’s leadership and reach the United States. The big breakthrough came with the 1980 Audi Quattro coupe debut that set the tone for today’s remarkable range of all-wheel-drive models — including the used Audis for sale in Portland OR.
