The Audi A4, A4 Cabriolet and TT Coupe have all received Used Car Honours from weekly motoring magazine Auto Express in its annual awards to recognise quality, durability and desirability in Britain’s previously owned cars.
At a ceremony held recently in London, the A4 was awarded Best Compact Executive and Best Cabriolet, both awards given for the second year in succession. The judging team explains its decision to single out the A4 in the March 16 edition of Auto Express by writing "With low running costs and amazingly high resale values the A4 is one of the finest used cars on the market…..Clean, efficient styling and build quality make it a very appealing proposition for those looking for something slightly less obvious than a 3-Series"
The TT scored a hat-trick with its third successive Best Coupe award in the Used Car Honours. "As a new car the TT is still one of the finest sports coupes money can buy - as a used car it’s simply the best", wrote the judges.
Tina Nicholls, Audi Used Car Manager, is delighted with the Audi award tally: "This is another great result for Audi that emphasises yet again the strength of our range both in the metal and on paper. Our cars not only tick all the boxes for desirability through their design flair and outstanding quality, but also use the very latest technology to deliver running costs that in many cases are the lowest in the sector. With each passing year Audi’s residual value performance grows significantly stronger, a fact which is regularly verified by Glass’s Guide."Published 17 March 2005
