Scott Keogh with the World Car Award
The new Audi A3 sedan reigned over the opening of the New York International Auto Show today as it was named World Car of the Year.
Just a few weeks after it was officially launched in the U.S. market, the A3 was tabbed for the honor over 11 other finalists in a vote by an international jury panel comprised of 69 automotive journalists from 22 countries. Among the other finalists were competitors such as the BMW 4 Series and Lexus IS.
“This really represents what Audi does extremely well,” Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, told journalists assembled at the show this week. “We couldn’t be prouder to win this award.”
