European Cars

Why Are European Cars So Popular In Australia?

With a wide selection of European and Australian vehicle brands here in Australia, it’s difficult to narrow down exactly what you want. If you want a car that has excellent styling, reliable standard features and solid engineering, European cars tend to offer it all. We believe that this is the reason why many Australians favour European cars over Australian makes and models. However, there are certain European brands that are more popular than others down under, and we’re going take a closer look at three of them.


Here in Australia, many drivers love that they can get the quality of a good old SKODA without the expensive price tag. Known for their sophisticated characteristics, SKODA cars were historically some of the first models ever introduced to Australia. Offering space, comfort and a wide selection of incredible benefits, SKODA has become a popular option across the country.


European CarsGerman brand Volkswagen is renown all over the world, but the new SUV (Volkswagen Atlas) provides incredible utility, making for a perfect family vehicle. Did you know that it even won awards for its remarkable performance? You’ll be pleased to know that there are plenty of servicing centres for you to get your Volkswagen inspected or repaired around the country.


Finally, when we’re talking about European brands, we can’t forget about the iconic Audi. Having been around for more than 100 years, Audi is known for designing and manufacturing a line of sophisticated, timeless vehicles. Their dedication to elegance, excellence and innovative features have made them a remarkably unique brand.

Features like the Audi MMI allow you to manage your car with ease as you can control the navigation, ride dynamics and entertainment. We also love the Audi Connect feature, which allows you to get up-to-date weather reports, find your destination via Google Earth and check fuel prices. Whether you’re looking for a corporate or company vehicle or a family car, Audi has been loved by many (if not all) Australians for years.
