Audi has been awarded trophies across five model categories at the British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards, held at the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre in Thatcham.

The new Audi A1 was awarded win the City Car/Supercar category, the Audi A8 quattro won in the Performance category, alongside the Audi A4 Saloon, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 compact SUV all of which received top mark.

Director of Audi UK Jeremy Hicks said: "I'm obviously delighted that yet again so many of our model ranges have excelled in the eyes of the security experts, but this year I'm especially pleased with our A1 award. We are always at pains to emphasise that our approach to bringing a sub-compact hatchback to market was just as uncompromising on every level as it would be for any other Audi model, and this award stands as further irrefutable proof of that fact."

Mike Briggs, Vehicle Security Manager at Thatcham, added: "With more outright category winners than any other manufacturer and pushing very close for the overall manufacturer award, Audi has once again proved that it is at the top of its game when it comes to vehicle security across the whole range of vehicles, from City Car right through to Luxury. It's an excellent achievement and Audi thoroughly deserves all its plaudits."

Audi's security features across the range include Thatcham category 1 alarm and immobiliser with interior ultrasonic protection and anti-tow sensors, Thatcham Category 4 locking wheel bolts and extensive covert and overt marked parts.
