Company officials said that in the Audi Approved: Plus program, the company offers 24x7 Roadside Assistance and complete vehicle history before purchase. Additionally, customers can also avail of easy financing and insurance benefits through the programme.

Audi hopes to tap the demand for pre-owned cars in the Lucknow and adjoining areas, its dealer principal said.
