Audi A7 is "2019 World Luxury Car"

  • Audi wins prestigious award
  • Tenth World Car Award for the brand with four rings
  • Member of the Board of Management of Audi Technical Development Hans-Joachim Rothenpieler: “It is a great honor for Audi to win the “World Luxury Car” award twice in a row” 

HERNDON, Va., April 17 2019 – The Audi A7 is the “2019 World Luxury Car.” The A7 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 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 honor 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 2019 Audi A7 builds on the heritage and success of the first generation, with the spaciousness of a sedan, versatility of a sportback and emotional design of a coupe. Its signature silhouette is defined by a sloping roofline, giving the A7 unique character, improved usability and easy access to the spacious cargo area.

Powerful and efficient, the A7 is equipped with a 3.0-liter TFSI® V6 engine that produces more torque compared to the outgoing A7 due to a twin-scroll turbocharger replacing the supercharger. Producing 335 horsepower, the A7 can sprint from 0-60 miles per hour in 5.2 seconds. The A7 also comes standard equipped with 48-volt Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology, and the newly developed standard steel front and rear suspension allows for both a sporty driving experience and more comfortable ride for long distances.
