The verdict is in and the winner has been announced. The Audi A7 Sportback has been named ‘2019 World Luxury Car’ in the World Car Awards in New York overnight – the second year in succession that Audi has claimed the prestigious title.
The Audi A7 Sportback took the baton from the Audi A8 which claimed the award last year, bringing Audi’s overall tally in the World Car of the Year awards to 10.
“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.”
Presented at a special event during the New York International Auto Show, the World Car of the Year awards celebrated 15 years in 2019, with Audi taking home the World Luxury Car trophy as well as being a finalist in three other categories.
The World Car Awards are considered amongst the most prestigious awards of their type in the automotive world. Presided over by an expert jury of 86 members from 24 countries across, each category is hotly contested and the winners recognised internationally for excellence.
The A7 Sportback’s combination of award-winning design, technology and of course luxury appointment and finish made it a worthy winner of the category, giving the brand with the four rings its second World Luxury Car victory.
But Audi has enjoyed wins across other categories of the World Car Awards with no less than four World Performance Car trophies (Audi RS 4 2007, Audi R8 2008, R8 V10 2010 and R8 2016), two World Car Design of the Year awards (Audi TT in 2007 and R8 in 2008) as well as two outright World Car of the Year victories with the Audi A6 in 2005 and the Audi A3 in 2014.
