Automobile Magazine’s annual Automobile of the Year award is one of the most prestigious and most sought after awards that a vehicle manufacturer can win. This year the Audi A7 was chosen as the winner which doesn’t come as a huge surprise to those of us who have driven this masterpiece of design and technology. It truly is a pinnacle for Audi because it is perhaps the best showcase of Audi’s passion for style, technology and sportiness.
Automobile Magazine’s 2012 Automobile of the Year, the Audi A7, does not represent a dramatic change of pace for its maker. Audi has been building handsome, fast, and rewarding luxury cars for some time now. Anchored by Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive, bristling with of-the-moment technologies, and surrounding its passengers with an artfully crafted interior, the A7 is exactly in keeping with the cars that this brand has been turning out. As editor-in-chief Jean Jennings said, “It’s the culmination of everything Audi has promised.”
