Audi Malaysia announces appointment of its latest dealership operated by Rimau International in Setia Alam, Selangor



There's a new Audi dealership in the Klang Valley. Audi Malaysia today announced the official appointment of Rimau International as the latest authorised dealer to represent the Audi brand in Malaysia. The company has already started operations from a temporary facility in Setia Alam, Selangor since the fourth quarter of 2016. 

This newest dealership marks the ninth exclusive Audi retailer in Malaysia. Even though the current facility is a temporary centre, it is a full service dealership. The Audi Setia Alam’s temporary showroom is also equipped with two service bays and a growing team of 15 sales and aftersales consultants. 

The thing about Rimau International is that they bring with them a wealth of experience from Japan, where they also operate a number of Audi dealerships in Kyoto. This is basically another foreign automotive dealership that have decided to spread their wings into Malaysia. 

As for the upcoming Audi Setia Alam 4S centre (artist impression above) will be a landmark 4-storey location, greeting motorists entering Setia Alam from the first quarter of 2018. Once completed, this will be the largest Audi dealership in Malaysia, occupying an area of just over 100,000 sq. ft., featuring a showroom floor with display capacity of up to 12 new cars, up to an additional 8 pre-owned cars at the Audi: approved plus section, a total of 20 service bays, as well as a premium reception area and lounge. It does look like Rimau International are entering the Malaysian automotive market in a big way.

In line with the official opening of Audi Setia Alam, this dynamic new dealership will be organising the Audi Setia Alam Bonanza Weekend from 12 – 14 May 2017, showcasing all of the latest Audi A4 variants and the rest of Audi’s progressive range of vehicles, with fantastic promotions and exciting gifts.
