WHAT CAR AWARDS - Four outright wins and seven best buys for Audi, that'll be hard to beat.
Successful start to the year for the largest Audi SUV
The third overall category win for Audi went to the Q7. The leading consumer magazine chose the 3.0 TDI 272 PS as its pick of the range, having been suitably impressed by its ‘powerful and silky-smooth’ engine, its ‘fast and slick’ eight-speed tiptronic transmission and its ample space for four adults and children.
New Audi A3 back on winning form
The consistently popular A3 Sportback brings the total Audi awards tally to four thanks to a Best Family Car category win. Following a comprehensive update across the range, the Audi A3 is now right back at the cutting edge of Audi innovation, and includes the very latest hallmarks of Vorsprung durch Technik, from the stunning virtual cockpit to an array of assistance systems such as the predictive efficiency assistant and the game-changing traffic jam assist, introducing the first steps toward piloted driving. Behind the technological updates the fundamental qualities of the A3 continue to shine through, as the What Car? team confirms by writing: “Even executive cars costing thousands more are shamed by its classy dashboard, rock-solid build quality and wonderful attention to detail.”
