Audi is reflecting on the numerous awards and accolades it has received so far this year. The automaker has been given several awards from international media and other organizations for both its vehicles and its new technologies, which are complimented by what are so far record-setting sales figures in 2015.
The Four Rings were given an incredible 16 awards at the recent iF Design Awards for the Audi Prologue and Audi TT, and also for non-automotive products like the Audi ArtExperience brochure, Audi eKurzinfo logbook app and the Audi-design Leica T camera. These were are joined by several other accolades not related to Audi’s cars themselves including Auto Zeitung’s ‘Top brand in 2015’ award and the “Product of the Future” Award for its virtual cockpit and MMI systems.
One of the most awarded Audi products in 2015 was the A3. The Austrian Automobile, Motorcycle and Touring Club gave theA3 Sportback e‑tron their “2015 Marcus Award” for being a “trendsetter.” Auto Bild also named the A3 Sportback e-tron its Value Champion of 2015, while U.S. News gave the standard A3 its “Best Small Upscale Car” award.
Bigger Audi models were given the nod of approval in America, with Consumer Reports naming the A6 the best luxury car, and the A5 received a value award from Kelley Blue Book. German bloggers also had some kind words the A6, naming it their favorite luxury mid-size car currently on sale. The What Car? Awards were equally as kind to Audi, naming the Audi TT it’s the ‘Coupe of the year,’ the A3 e-tron the ‘Electric Car’ of the year and the A3 Cabriolet the ‘Cabriolet’ of the year award.
