Audi Steals Five Trophies at British Security Awards

During the recent British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards, presented by the Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre, Thatcham, Audi proved all its German might in keeping your belongings and your whole car safe by winning five category awards.

The diminutive A1 stole one City Car / Supermini category trophy, while the A8 L W12 quattro luxury saloon also triumphed in the Performance Car category, continuing the exceptional four-year run of success enjoyed by the previous generation A8.

In addition, the A4 Saloon, A5 Cabriolet and Q5 compact SUV also all achieved higher NVSR scores than their respective competitors for the fourth, third and second year in succession respectively.

“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,” Director of Audi UK Jeremy Hicks commented on the company’s success.

“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,” Mike Briggs, Vehicle Security Manager at Thatcham, also added his take on proceedings.

All models were praised for the standard Thatcham Category 1 alarm and immobiliser technology with interior ultrasonic protection and anti-tow sensors, available throughout the range.
