Readers of the magazine Auto Motor und Sport have voted Audi to two first places in the Best Cars 2016 polls. The Audi A1 was crowned the best small car and the Audi Q7 was the most impressive model among the large sport utility vehicles. The Audi A3 and Audi A6 also won second place in their respective categories.
“We are delighted with the double win in the Best Cars poll. The coveted awards reflect our strong product portfolio and give our team plenty of encouragement for 2016,” said Rupert Stadler, chairman of the Board of Management of Audi AG.
Dr. Stefan Knirsch, board member for Technical Development said, “With the new Audi Q7, we have taken an extensive array of state-of-the-art assistance systems into production. We will build on our model initiative this year with innovative technical solutions.”
The awards ceremony took place a fortnight ago in Stuttgart with Sales Director Dr. Dietmar Voggenreiter receiving the award for the A1. “The Audi A1 proves there is genuinely scope for premium automobiles with a city format to succeed. With its sportiness and outstanding Audi quality, it is an important brand ambassador of the four rings,” Voggenreiter said.
The Best Cars reader poll run by Auto Motor und Sport celebrated its 40th anniversary this year. A total of 115,239 readers took part in the poll.
