Just like recent announcements from Mercedes and BMW, Audi will now offer an introductory 3-month trial offer of the "Sirius Everything" satellite radio package with the purchase of all Sirius-equipped certified pre-owned Audi vehicles sold in the U.S.
This news comes on the tail of a recent announcement from Audi stating that it has outperformed against its competitors in the U.S. luxury import sector.
Audi will continue to offer Sirius as standard equipment on key models sold in the U.S., including the A3, A4, A5, A6, A8 and R8 models as well as the Audi Q7 and Q5 models.
"The Audi experience has always been about more than just driving," said Mark Del Rosso, Chief Operating Officer, Audi of America in a statement. "And that's why we know our customers want Sirius' sports, news, talk and 100% commercial-free music in their certified pre-owned Audi vehicles."
These announcements with automakers are all perfectly timed leading up to Sirius XM's 2Q09 financial results this Thursday. No doubt they will be a topic of discussion.
