Audi Achieves Record Overall Scores

In the study, Audi received a score of 857, 62 points above the industry average, moving it up two positions to rank second in the U.S. industry.  Furthermore, the 2013 Audi allroad received the award for Highest Ranked Compact Premium CUV, highest in its segment.  The Audi allroad marries the cargo capacity of a crossover with the refinement of a luxury car and offers uncompromising all-weather capabilities with improved driving dynamics unique to Audi.

“Audi is committed to delivering the best overall design, performance, and driving experience, and we are pleased to have received such high rankings from our customers,” shares Audi Santa Barbara General Sales Manager, Bill Fogg.
