Press Release: Audi Wins Three 2012 KBB Best Resale Value Awards

Audi today announced that it received three 2012 Best Resale Value Awards from Kelley Blue Book, the leading provider of new and used vehicle information. The annual Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards recognize vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership. The 2012 Audi Q7 received two awards, and the 2012 Audi A5 also received recognition.

The 2012 Audi Q7 was named Best Resale Value in the Luxury Utility Vehicle class and was one of the Top 10 cars with Best Resale Value. The seven-passenger Audi Q7 exceeds driver and passenger expectations for functionality and comfort. Q7 customers have the option of a gasoline turbocharged, fuel-injected 3.0-liter TFSI engine, or a powerful yet fuel efficient V6 turbocharged direct injection TDI clean diesel engine.

The Audi Q7 features a luxurious, premium interior including heated and available cooled, twelve-way power front seats, fore and aft adjustable rear middle seats, and foldable seats in the third row. For maximum comfort, an available panoramic roof gives the cabin a light, open feeling. The 2012 Audi Q7 offers the most advanced Audi technologies available, including Audi connect with a rolling Wi-Fi Hotspot for up to eight devices and Google Voice Local Search. The Audi music interface with iPod/iPhone connectivity ensures user friendly perusing of play lists and song titles via the Audi MMI system. A full complement of airbags, including Sideguard head curtain airbags for all three rows of seats ensures passengers stay safe.

The 2012 Audi A5 was named Best Resale Value in the Luxury Car class by Kelley Blue Book. The A5, available in Coupe and Cabriolet models, offers drivers and passengers exceptional performance and safety. The A5 is equipped with the award-winning Audi 2.0L TFSI engine, a fuel-sipping, yet torque laden powerplant that generates 211 hp at 4,300 rpm and 258 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500 rpm. The Coupe offers the choice of a precise six-speed manual transmission or an available Tiptronic eight speed automatic transmission, while the Cabriolet model comes standard with an Audi FrontTrak front-wheel drive, multitronic continuously variable transmission with a Tiptronic eight-speed available on Quattro models.

The 2012 Audi A5 features unmistakable LED daytime running lights and an ergonomic interior designed around passenger comfort. Available driver convenience technologies, such as Audi MMI Navigation plus, Audi MMI Radio plus and Audi music interface, add pure enjoyment to the driving experience. A full complement of airbags and electronic stability control ensures passengers stay safe.

Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide, determined by a skilled staff of automotive analysts. Kelley Blue Book examines current vehicle data, sales data, market conditions for each vehicle, competition within vehicle segments and expectations of the future economy. This year’s awards are based on 2012 model-year vehicles.
