Audi's second overall victory at the World Car of the Year Awards came as the Audi A3 was voted 'number one' by industry-leading judges from across the globe.

23 Apr 2014 | International News : U.K.

The Audi A3, the premium compact best-seller from the brand with the four rings, is the 2014 World Car of the Year. This is the second overall title for Audi in the ten-year history of the World Car of the Year Awards as the Audi A6 won the inaugural overall title in 2005.

The third A3 generation is available in four body styles following the addition of the Saloon
The third generation of the Audi A3 is now officially confirmed as a world beater. It overcame the challenge from 23 other cars to win the prestigious World Car of the Year title in 2014.

The A3 was voted as the winner by an international jury panel comprising 69 top level automotive journalists from 22 countries around the world.

The new Audi A3 is available in the U.K. as a three-door, Sportback, Cabriolet and Saloon. It is powered by a range of TFSI petrol and TDI diesel engines.

Later this year, the A3 Sportback will also be available as an e‑tron, whose plug‑in hybrid drive enables journeys of up to 50km in all-electric mode.

Audi can look back on a 16‑year success story with the A3. In 1996, the first generation of the model series established an entirely new market segment - the premium compact class. With the second generation, which followed in 2003, the brand extended its lead with the addition of a Cabriolet to the familiar three-door and Sportback body styles.

With this win for the Audi A3, Audi has maintained its position as the manufacturer with the most World Car of the Year titles. The brand with the four rings has previously won three World Performance Car titles, two World Car Design of the Year titles and the inaugural World Car of the Year title.
