Audi announced that the A7 model has been selected by the Motor Press Guild (MPG) to receive the first-ever Motor Press Guild Vehicle of the Year (VOTY) Award. MPG is the largest automotive media association in North America. MPG President, Laura Burstein, will present the trophy at Audi's press conference on the first day of the Los Angeles Auto Show press days on Nov. 16.

"It was a close contest, but the 2012 Audi A7 managed to edge out the competition with its compelling combination of handsome styling, dynamic handling and advanced in-car technology," said Laura Burstein, MPG President. "In this highly competitive market, it's hard to be a standout, but Audi did it with the A7. Likewise, we congratulate all of our finalists on bringing solid, efficient and good-looking vehicles to the market that are fun to drive." The A7 is the first car in the world to feature factory-installed Wi-Fi with Audi connect and navigation with 3-D Google Earth. In the US, the A7 is powered by an all-aluminum 3.0 liter TFSI V6 engine with 310hp and 325 lb-ft. of torque.

The panel of judges consist of MPG journalists who test and review cars on a regular basis. The entire journalist team evaluated the finalist vehicles in the categories of safety, quality, value, performance/handling, design/style, environmental/green impact and technology/innovation standards. To be eligible for the contest, the vehicles are required to be all-new or substantially changed from the previous year's model and available at dealerships on or before 1 Jan 2012.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
