Audi wins several awards in March and April

Audi has been on a serious roll lately, with continued sales growth and success with record-breaking sales months and a suite of new vehicles that are impressing both the media and consumer alike. Most of the attention has gone to the newly released Audi A4 and Q7, but it hasn’t only been those models. For the months of March and April, Audi received quite a few awards for its work this year to help continue its roll of good fortune.

We already spoke about Audi winning the “Most Innovative Premium Brand” award from the Center of Automotive Management (CAM). The very same institution also awarded Audi with to other awards, in the “Connected Car” and “Vehicle Concepts/Body” categories. But this is far from the only accolade Audi received in March or April.

2016 Audi A4

In Mexico, Audi received to placements on the “Best Cars Mexico” list from Automovil Panamericano magazine. Those two cars to place were the Audi A1 subcompact and Audi A3 sedan. Those two cars are very popular in Mexico, so it’s no surprise that they placed. However, it proves that not only Audi’s high-end premium cars are great, but even the ones at the lower end of the spectrum, not that any Audi is low-end.

This is far from it, though. Audi received plenty more awards than that and it shows to the quality of the brand’s new products. Audi’s new platforms, engines and technologies have been impressing everyone that drives new models and the Ingolstadt-based automaker deserves the awards its getting. For a list of all the awards Audi received in just the months of March and April, check below.
