The Audi A5 and A6 have been recognised by the Motorist Choice Awards, the 5th annualÂ automotive awards based on active consumers in the marketplace.
The result of more than 42,000 consumer surveys, the Motorist Choice Awards crownedÂ the Audi A5 as the Best â€œSexy Stylingâ€ Vehicle from a Premium Brand and the Audi A6 asÂ the Best â€œCountry Clubâ€ Vehicle from a Premium Brand.
â€œMany auto enthusiasts are passionate about Audiâ€™s attractive and sleek, sexy designs.Â The Audi A5 definitely turned heads for its great style,â€ said George Peterson, PresidentÂ of AutoPacific.
â€œThe Audi A6, chosen as the Best â€˜Country Clubâ€™ vehicle, was shown to truly represent itsÂ owners: well-to-do, educated, financially savvy and frequent travellers.â€
The award-winning Audi A5 coupe features a sophisticated, yet striking design thatÂ commands road presence. An elegantly appointed, driver-oriented cockpit combined withÂ standard quattro all-wheel drive, an eight-speed tiptronic transmission, and anÂ incredibly powerful yet efficient engine, makes the A5 is a true driverâ€™s sports car.Â With one of the most luxurious interiors available, according to U.S. News and WorldÂ Report, the Audi A6 combines exceptional performance with an unmatched drivingÂ experience. The elegant design of the A6 is defined by iconic touches such as the uniqueÂ SingleframeÂ grille, striking LED daytime running lights and taillights, optionalÂ entertainment choices such as the BOSE Surround Sound system, industry-leading safetyÂ features and the convenience of HomeLink and Bluetooth.
This yearâ€™s Motorist Choice Awards went beyond editorial reviews and performance testÂ data to address the wants and needs of todayâ€™s motorists, like total cost of ownership,Â driving experience, fuel economy and resale value. The awards included 15 new areas inÂ which buyers might categorize their potential purchases, also including Best Cargo HaulerÂ and Best Value Car.
