Audi Honolulu is proud to be part of a brand that achieves constant recognition. This year has already proven to be just as exciting for Audi with five different models receiving accolades from industry experts. And the winners are…
Audi Q7 (pictured above)
Car and Driver “2018 Best Mid-size Luxury SUV”
As Car and Driver says, “in this class, we expect ample room and comfort, but the Q7 adds agility, earning it a 2018 10 Best award.” That agility comes from the legendary quattro® all-wheel drive, which provides high-precision handling, so you can enjoy all 252 horsepower with confidence in any turn. Or upgrade to the available 3.0 TFSI® engine that puts out 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque for a truly dynamic driving experience.
2018 Audi A4
Cars.com “2018 Luxury Car of the Year”
Cars.com says, “the versatility and competency of the A4 is unshakable and combined with its unwavering interior material quality, the A4 remains an outstanding luxury car,” and we agree! With MMI® control panel, three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, wing-design wrap-around dashboard, and available ambient LED interior lighting plus package, it’s easy to agree that this is top-of-the-line luxury.
2018 Audi Q5
Kelley Blue Book® “Luxury SUV Best Buy of 2018”
From KBB.com: “Larger, more luxurious and more powerful, the Audi Q5 expands and improves on the refined driving experience, tech-friendly cabin and high-style design for which the brand is known, confirming the Q5’s place as this year’s Luxury SUV Best Buy for 2018.” we couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
2018 Audi A3
U.S. News & World Report “Best Luxury Small Car for the Money”
Editors from U.S. News and World Report praised the vehicle, noting “the A3 is a great car because it’s sporty, fuel-efficient and comes loaded with technology and upscale touches.” Not only were editors impressed by the standard heated front seats, two USB ports, and available advanced driver assistance features, they also enjoyed the 2.0 TFSI® quattro® all-wheel drive turbocharged four-cylinder engine with six-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission. Additionally, the model line offers a host of standard premium features such as leather seating, power panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, xenon plus front lighting with LED daytime running lights and LED taillights.
2018 Audi A5 Sportback
Kelley Blue Book® “Luxury Car Best Buy of 2018”
Last year, when we named the 2017 Audi A4 our Luxury Car Best Buy, we cited both value and luxury as the key reasons this elegant compact all-wheel-drive sedan took home the honors. We thought it would be a slam dunk to repeat, until we got our hands on the 2018 Audi A5 Sportback. Equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with a 7-speed transmission and all-wheel drive, the A5 not only shares the same powertrain and architecture as the A4, but pretty much the same road manners. Even the sticker prices are within the same range. What tilted the title to the Sportback, however, is the sleek styling, hatchback utility and slightly roomier feel to the cabin.
To experience these award-winning Audi models for yourself, come into the Audi Honolulu showroom or contact us today to schedule a test drive. We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2018 has in store.
