Motorline invests in new landmark Audi centre in Canterbury
The Motorline Group has relocated its East Kent Audi centre, previously located on Ashford Road in Chartham, to an impressive brand-new, purpose-built Audi centre in Broad Oak Road, Canterbury.

The new location, which will be renamed as Canterbury Audi, officially opened on the 5th October 2020. 

Thomas Obee, Chief Executive Officer at Motorline, commented, "We are thrilled to open the innovative Canterbury Audi centre in our family home city and close to where the Motorline Group originally began. 

"Located in the heart of Canterbury's motor district, the new building is one of the very first Audi Centres in the UK to incorporate the new Audi internal design and showroom finishes, which will further enhance the experience of customers visiting this outstanding facility. 

"To align the new location with our Audi centres in Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells, this move has seen a change in trading name to Canterbury Audi. This new name signifies the final step in our journey to deliver the ultimate Audi experience for our customers." 

In addition to its automotive history, the new centre demonstrates significant confidence in Kent as a leading business county, with Thomas Obee adding, "We are excited to continue our investment in the Kent region, creating further opportunities for growth and contributing to the county's economic landscape".  Motorline has a rich track-record of investment in Kent and is one of county's largest employers. 

Since Motorline's acquisition of East Kent Audi in July 2018, the group has seen significant changes in customer processes and experience, with positive feedback received as a result. 

With technology playing a significant role in the design of the new building, it also introduces one of the first Audi centres with a drive-through digital service reception in the UK.  

In addition, the new centre will feature the latest automotive technology seen throughout the enhanced 12 car showroom, which features an Audi Performance Centre displaying the latest RS models. There are also over 75 approved used cars on display, further giving customers the opportunity to experience the full breadth of the Audi range. The new centre has been designed to be easily accessible with large open areas including 30 customer parking spaces, six electric vehicle chargers and a 16-bay workshop. 

The introduction of the new Canterbury Audi facilities enables Motorline to further enhance its reputation for delivering an outstanding customer service experience and upon arrival customers will be able to check-in, relax and enjoy the new showroom in the spacious and modern seating area. 

The unmissable new landmark home for Audi in Canterbury is centrally located on Broad Oak Road and is easily accessible via the A2 and A28.
