2012 Audi A7 Is Motor Press Guild's Vehicle Of The Year

A big day indeed as Audi today announced that the 2012 A7 has been selected by the Motor Press Guild (MPG), the largest automotive media association in North America, to receive the first-ever Motor Press Guild Vehicle of the Year (VOTY) Award. Laura Burstein, MPG President, will present the trophy at Audi's press conference on the first day of the Los Angeles Auto Show press days on November 16.

Johan de Nysschen, president of Audi of America, said “The A7 is the epitome of high style and artistry, with a five-door coupe design that is both sporty and elegant. Response to the launch of the A7 this year has been outstanding. We’re proud to be selected by Motor Press Guild as the recipient of their first-ever Vehicle of the Year award.”

“It was a close contest, but the 2012 Audi A7 managed to edge out the competition with its compelling combination of handsome styling, dynamic handling and advanced in-car technology," said Laura Burstein, MPG President. "In this highly competitive market, it’s hard to be a standout, but Audi did it with the A7. Likewise, we congratulate all of our finalists on bringing solid, efficient and good-looking vehicles to the market that are fun to drive."

The seamless merger of style, luxury and technology, every detail of the A7 delivers a dramatic visual statement. The A7 was the first car in the world to feature factory-installed Wi-Fi with Audi connect™ and navigation with 3-D Google Earth. From the innovative MMI® touchpad and its gracefully integrated display screen, to the state-of-the-art head up display, the Audi A7 is the perfect union of progressive design and sophisticated engineering. The A7 also sets a high standard for performance, handling and efficiency with an all-aluminum Audi 3.0 liter TFSI® V6 engine, 310 hp and 325 lb.-ft. of torque.

The 2012 Audi A7 was one of five finalists chosen by a carefully selected panel of MPG journalist members who test and review cars on a regular basis. The entire journalist membership present at MPG's recent Track Day event evaluated the finalist vehicles in the categories of safety, quality, value, performance/handling, design/style, environmental/green impact and technology/innovation standards and cast their votes accordingly.

Vehicles were required to be all-new or substantially changed from the previous year's model and available at dealerships on or before January 1, 2012.
