Congrats are in order for Audi!

They received the award for World Car of the Year 2014 for the Audi A3. The announcement was made at the New York Auto Show earlier this month.

The voting panel, made up of a jury of 69 automotive journalists representing 22 countries, selected the third generation Audi A3 over 23 other automobiles to win the impressive title.

Audi is no stranger to this award. In 2005, they won the same award for their A6 model.

Other honorable winners at the 2014 World Car of the Year Awards ceremony went to:

  • Porsche for World Performance Car of the Year for the 2014 911 GT3
  • Mercedes-Benz for World Luxury Car of the Year for the 2014 Mercedes S-Class
  • BMW for World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car of the Year for the BMW i3

Cheers to Audi and the other German automakers who successfully beat out the competition!
