They're going to need a bigger trophy cabinet at Audi HQ, as the marque triumphs yet again at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards
The Audi TT Coupe´ continued its domination of one of the most coveted awards in the automotive industry when it was named ‘Best Coupe´’ at the 2020 What Car? Car Of The Year Awards for a record 17th time.
Commenting on the TT Coupe´ 40 TFSI Sport, the What Car? judges said: ‘The TT is more exquisitely put together than cars that cost a lot more yet is still thoroughly contemporary inside. And with the new engine, it delivers truly rapid performance to go with its composed handling and compliant ride.’ They then summed up by describing the TT as ‘the ultimate coupe´ for every occasion’.
The highly experienced road-testers at What Car? were equally impressed by the seven-seater Audi Q7, which they named ‘Best Luxury SUV’ for the fourth year in a row. They described the luxuriously appointed, go-anywhere SUV as ‘the ultimate automotive polymath’. And when they put the Q7 50 TDI S line to the test, they found that it could ‘accelerate like a hot hatch, pamper like a limo, handle like a saloon and accommodate like an SUV’.
In addition to the two winners, the What Car? judges singled out no less than seven Audi models for prestigious ‘Best Buy’ commendations. Four of these went to Audi’s acclaimed Q range of SUVs, including the most junior and most senior members of this illustrious family. The Q2 was hailed ‘Best Small SUV for more than £25,000’ and the Q3 Sportback ‘Best Coupe´ SUV for less than £35,000’. The Q5 was named ‘Best Large SUV for more than £35,000’, while the Q8 was judged ‘Best Coupe´ SUV for more than £60,000’
Audi's fully electric e-tron 55 was deemed 'Best Large Electric Car for more than £70,000', while the A8 L 50 TDI quattro Sport was the judges 'top recommendation for 'Best Luxury Car for more than £60,000'. Finally, the A5 Cabriolet proved its all-year appeal in the depths of winter by being crowned 'Best convertible for between £25,000 and £50,000'.
Of course, you can always judge for yourself after test-driving the award-winning range at your local MonMotors Audi Centre at Bath, Bristol and Cardiff.
