Audi has once again proven to be the brand to trust when it comes to purchasing a used car after reigning supreme at the recent What Car? Used Car Awards 2020.
The German brand fended off stiff competition to win four of the 19 categories up for grabs, more than any other brand, including the overall Used Car of the Year for the Audi A3 Sportback.
As well as being awarded Best Family Car, the A3 Sportback (2013 - Present) was awarded the grand prize after impressing judges with its “roomy, classy interior” and “practical, reliable and “comfortable” drive.
The What Car? judges combined road testing expertise with the knowledge of its used car experts to pick out the shining lights in each class.
Based on this criteria, Audi also impressed in the Best Coupe category, with perennial winner the Audi TT once again driving home with the title.
The model, from 2014 to present, is the third iteration of the TT and once again turned the judges’ heads with its “eager handling”, “delightful interior”, “refined line-up of engines” and “strong performance” as well as its value for money in comparison with rivals.
Audi’s fourth award went to the Audi A3 Cabriolet (2014 - present) for Best Convertible. The soft-top got the judges vote for its solid build, its wide range of “punchy and efficient engines”, as well as “tidy handling” and “impressive refinement”.
Underling its strong showing at this year’s awards, Audi also came runner up in five categories; the Audi Q5 (2018-present) for the Best Large SUV award, Audi Q7 (2015 - Present) for Best Luxury SUV, Audi R8 (2015 - Present) for Best Sports Car, Audi A4 (2015 – Present) for Best Executive Car and, the Audi A5 Coupe (2010-Present), which was runner up to the TT in the Best Coupe category.
Cameron Wade, Franchise Director at Lookers Audi Division, said: “The What Car? Used Car Awards are always among the awards we look forward to every year, so to win four of the categories, including overall winner, is a phenomenal achievement. Audi has always been at the forefront of automotive manufacture, building cars that last, both in terms of their timeless looks and their resale value.”
