New Zealand is a bit like Europe -- hatches are very popular, and will likely still outsell the sedan by quite some margin. Audi NZ is taking the sedan for delivery April because they know they will sell them, and the SB isn't due to the third quarter.

European car models in NZ tend to be more expensive than other regions, but they are also quite highly spec'ed as standard. We're a small market and they only sell limited numbers and to justify the price they spec them up a bit.

 

So what tax is paid in NZ on an imported car? Just curious, I know in the UK we pay (at the moment) a bit less than mainland Europe for Audi cars, a large part I guess down to exchange rates between currencies. I'm sort of hoping that this doesn't change anytime soon even though the £ really took a hit on the vote, Brexit or whateverexit will impact it again if it ever gets agreed.

 

As for spec, I know the digital pod is quite cool, though i think I'd prefer old school dials, surprised that's not an option but standard spec too. 

 

Good luck with the order Saloon or SB, will look forward to hearing about test drives and seeing photos in 2017.

Hi. There is no special import tax on vehicles in NZ. There is a GST (like VAT) of 15%.

We have a new 4M Q7 (delivered October this year) and it has all the new toys in the facelift, including Virtual Cockpit. We love them and I wouldn't want to be without it now. It's a shame there is no HUD option on the A3. I have that on my 335i M Performance now and really enjoy that option too.
