Development Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler: “It is a great honour for Audi to win the “World Luxury Car” award twice in a row”
The Audi A7 Sportback* is the “2019 World Luxury Car.” The A7 Sportback is the second Audi to take home the award after the Audi A8* won it last year. The awards were presented today at the New York International Auto Show.
The World Car jury, consisting of 86 members from 24 countries, voted to distinguish the Audi A7 Sportback as the best new luxury car on the world market. This is the tenth victory for Audi in one of the World Car categories.
“It is a great honour for Audi to win the ‘World Luxury Car’ award twice in a row,” says Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler, Member of the Board of Management of AUDI AG Technical Development. “We are very proud of this award because it shows Audi’s ability to develop leading premium cars in various segments.”
The design of a coupe, the space of a saloon, and the variability of an Avant—the new Audi A7 Sportback combines the best of three worlds. It is a new style of Gran Turismo, offering systematic digitalisation, a dynamic driving experience, and a space concept that combines a wide range of customer requirements.
