Audi has taken home two awards in German automotive publication Auto Motor Und Sport’s annual Best Cars survey. The Audi A1 compact hatchback won the ‘Best Small Car’ category, while the Q3 took home the ‘Best Compact SUV’ award, recognition the automaker says it is “extremely happy,’ about.
The Auto Motor Und Sport awards are notable as they are voted on by readers, thus reflecting how the German car-buying public views each automaker’s respective products. In addition to taking home top small car and compact SUV honors, the A6 sedan came in second in the ‘Upper Midsize’ category, while the A3 was third in the ‘Compact Car’ class.
The A1 received 25 percent of the Small Car vote, while the Q3 received 19 percent of the Compact SUV vote. Over 112,471 readers voted on the Best Car awards this year, which were being held for the 39th time.
