Sporting and executive Audi models take home key awards
- Audi A6 the judge’s choice in the Executive and luxury sector of What Car?’s Used Car of the Year 2012 awards
- Audi TT also wins used Fun car, celebrated for its reliability and build quality
The enduring appeal of core models in the Audi range has been acknowledged this week by What Car? Magazine, which has singled out the A6 Saloon and the TT Coupe for ‘Executive and Luxury’ and ‘Fun’ category honours in the 2012 What Car? Used Car of the Year awards.
The What Car? panel praised the Audi A6 2.0 TDI SE for its ‘flawless’ interior fit and finish and its ability to combine ‘refinement with a sporty, grippy driving experience’.
Meanwhile the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI, lauded as an ‘icon of design’, scored highly for being well-equipped and affordable to run, with a ‘beautifully crafted interior and superior driving experience’.
Commenting on the awards, Chas Hallett, What Car? Magazine’s Editor in Chief said: “The Audi A6 is a worthy winner of the What Car? used executive car of the year award. It delivers a top class package combining a great image, high quality cabin and refinement alongside a good driving experience. Best of all it’s economical to run and will hold its value in years to come.
“The TT is no less deserving in its category. It looks great, goes and handles well and conveys the right prestige image with the quality to back that up, yet all versions are surprisingly cheap to run.”
Rachael Thompson, National Used Car Manager for Audi UK was delighted with the results: “To receive not one but two awards in the hard-fought used car market is a fantastic achievement for Audi. The leading edge design and celebrated build quality that characterises all our cars gives them lasting appeal, and I’m delighted that such a highly regarded and authoritative magazine has recognised that fact.”
