Penske Automotive Group, which operates 310 retail automotive franchises, representing 40 different brands and 25 collision repair centers, just announced the acquisition of Audi and Volkswagen dealerships located in Santa Ana, California.
The two dealerships, Commonwealth Audi and Commonwealth Volkswagen are co-located in the Santa Ana Auto Mall, with the newly acquired dealerships helping Penske Automotive Group reach nine Audi and two Volkswagen dealerships in the United States.
