Golden Steering Wheel Awards for A4 & A8The new Audi A4 and R8 have both won category Golden Steering Wheel Awards in Europe's automotive Oscars.
An international panel of experts, along with readers of Auto Bild magazine and Blid am Sonntag newspaper, made the decision with the modern and stylish German cars winning in their respective categories.
The R8 took the prize in the sports car category. The fastest and most powerful series production Audi ever, the new generation Audi R8 has been taking endurance racing prizes across the world since its reveal at the beginning of the year and ahead of the road car launch this Autumn. The mid-engined, V10 supercar with quattro four-wheel drive offers incredible performance in all weathers.
Audi's new fifth generation of A4, also launched this year, took home the top prize in the midsize car category. With more space, performance, technology and efficiency than before, the A4 is also less expensive than the previous model. A4 is Audi's best-selling model across the marque's history and sits in a challenging sector with many accomplished rivals.
It was nearly a hat-trick of trophies for Audi as the new Q7 achieved a second-place finish in the luxury category, but with a total of 25 accolades across the 40-year history of the awards - amongst the most coveted of all in the motor industry - Audi is now the most successful brand.
38 new cars were among the competitors in the awards ceremony, with other categories such as subcompact, compact, midsize SUV and family cars up for grabs.
