The four-door luxury A7 was also chosen for its sleek, striking design, innovative use of a hatchback, cutting-edge technology and powerful engine. Automobile editors cited the A7’s effortless acceleration provided by an all-wheel-drive supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with eight-speed transmission, as well as the car’s deft handling.

The Audi TT RS was also selected by Automobile to receive its 2012 “All-Star” Award. This time the editors called the TT RS powerful, refined, and emotive – giving an exhilarating driving experience.

“The Audi TT RS is not just a beautiful machine inside and out, but a soul-stirring one; the epitome of everything that Audi means to us. It’s a perfect tool for driving perfectionists, worthy of a choice parking spot in the dream garage,” said Jean Jennings, from Automobile Magazine.

The Motor Press Guild also bestowed its first-ever ‘Vehicle of the Year’ award On the 2012 Audi A7. Representing the largest automotive media association in North America, MPG President, Laura Burstein explained that “It was a close contest, but the 2012 Audi A7 managed to edge out the competition with its compelling combination of handsome styling, dynamic handling and advanced in-car technology. "In this highly competitive market, it’s hard to be a standout, but Audi did it with the A7".
