Mercedes CLS’ nemesis, the Audi A7, has been selected by Bloomberg News as the ‘Best Overall car for the year’. The 2012 Audi A7 was chosen for its industry-leading technology, high style and unique 5-door coupe design.

"The A7's blend of technology, material luxury and highway-conquering drivability is almost eerie," said Jason Harper, Bloomberg News automotive critic. "The A7 has just the right amount of style and substance. You could drive your CEO boss around all day, and then pick up a supermodel date at night." In the US, the A7 is powered by an all-aluminium 3.0-litre TFSI V6 engine which is capable of 310bhp and 325lb-ft of torque. The elegant four-door coupe is the first car in the world to feature factory-installed Wi-Fi with Audi connect and navigation with 3-D Google Earth. Other niceties include the MMI touchpad, integrated display screen and the state-of-the-art head up display.

Ever since its introduction, the Audi A7 has won numerous awards, including the ‘Motor Press Guild Vehicle of the Year’ award, ‘2012 Active Lifestyle of the Year’ Award and ‘2012 Automobile of The Year’ award. With the introduction of the BMW 6 series Gran Coupe, the Audi A7 will have tougher times ahead but I believe it can hold its own against the Bavarian automaker’s latest salvo.

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.
