Audi A7 Sportback at Audi A7 Named 2012 AUTOMOBILE of the Year

AUTOMOBILE Magazine selected the Audi A7 Sportback as its 2012 car of the year, because of ts styling and features.

The car chosen as the 2012 COTY is the all-wheel-drive supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 (310hp and 325 lb-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed transmission. Next year there will be a V8 model which to all intents and pusposes will be the perfect all-rounder for every occasion.

AUTOMOBILE judges were also impressed by the A7’s sleek, striking design, innovative use of a hatchback, cutting-edge technology.

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 groundbreaking MMI® touchpad and its gracefully integrated display screen, to the state-of-the-art head up display, the Audi A7 is the perfect marriage of progressive design and sophisticated engineering.

The Audi A7 boasts bold styling and dramatic features, making it an icon of design and technology.  We’re thrilled that AUTOMOBILE Magazine has selected A7 as the Automobile of the Year,” said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America.

“The Audi A7 is the sort of car that, when you look at it, you want it,” said Jean Jennings, AUTOMOBILE Magazine editor-in-chief. “The closer you get to it, the more you love it. Every mile you drive, you cannot believe how beautiful it is inside. Audi has positioned it perfectly between the A6 and A8 as a great all-around car providing class-leading storage space, a great powertrain, and really compelling design.”
