Audi emerged from the “Auto Trophy 2015” reader poll of the magazine AUTO ZEITUNG as the most successful brand, with five awards. At this year’s awards ceremony, four of the coveted trophies went to the models Audi A1, Audi A3, Audi Q7 and Audi R8. The brand with the four rings also topped the poll category of “Best Design Worldwide”.
The Audi A3*, the premium compact bestseller from the brand with the four rings, is the 2014 World Car of the Year. This is the second overall title for Audi in the ten year history of the World Car of the Year Awards as the Audi A6 won the inaugural overall title in 2005.
*The collective fuel consumption of all models named above and available on the German market can be found in the list provided at the end of this MediaInfo.
The Euro NCAP consortium has awarded the new Audi A3 the maximum five-star rating for passive crash safety. The results for adult occupant protection in a frontal, rear, and side impact as well as child safety and pedestrian protection make the new Audi A3 one of the safest cars in its class.
