Audi A6 Car of the Year

Audi A6 Named Car of the Year by Rocky Mountain Automotive Press

The 2012 A6 3.0 TFSI received the 2012 Car of the Year Award by the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press. Given to five category winners, the 2012 Vehicle of the Year Awards honor new vehicles for sale in the Rocky Mountain region for their value, performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety. The award was presented yesterday to Audi of America during a special ceremony at the opening of the Denver International Auto Show.

The field for the 2012 awards included every significant new car, pickup, crossover and SUV for sale in the Rocky Mountain West. More than 70 models received test-drive evaluations in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming over the past months by members of the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press.

Chosen as the best new car to own and drive in the Rocky Mountain West, the all-new 2012 Audi A6 boasts an all-aluminum 3.0 L TFSI® supercharged V6 engine with 310 horsepower. One of Audi’s most innovative and technologically-advanced models to date, the A6 makes up to 2,000 decisions per second to assist the driver. Safety in the all-new Audi A6 is enhanced by a thermal imaging camera with Night Vision Assistant, the Audi Pre-Sense Plus safety system and quattro® all-wheel drive technology. Other intelligent features include head-up display and a MMI® Touch pad that recognizes handwriting in multiple languages. Audi is the first company worldwide to feature factory-installed wireless internet, enabling features such as Audi connect™ for real-time weather, traffic news and live fuel prices, and MMI Navigation with 3-D Google Earth™ images.
