•2018 A3 Sportback e-tron earns the Women's Choice 'eco-friendly' award in hatchback category

•2018 TT Coupe and 2018 Q3 earn the Women's Choice 'reliable' award in coupe and crossover categories

December 6, 2017 | HERNDON, Virginia – Four 2018 Audi models – the Audi A3 Cabriolet, A3 Sportback e-tron, TT Coupe and Q3 – are being honored as leaders in their segments by the Women's Choice Award at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Women's Choice Award commissioned a national study to better understand what matters to women when buying a car or truck, and as a result, the Women's Choice Automotive Awards were developed. Within each award category – Safety, Reliability, Family-Friendly and Eco-Friendly – vehicles were classified into nine segments including sedan, coupe, crossover and SUV. Vehicles were scored based on factors women reported to be most important when purchasing a new car or truck.

To be considered for the 2018 Women's Choice Automotive Awards, a car must be available for purchase in the U.S. between September 13 – November 2, 2017, must be a 2018 base-trim model and not be in a state of mandatory or required recalls.

Considerations for each award category were presented for women to rank as their high priorities. Within safety, availability of features such as adaptive headlights, rear view cameras, forward collision warning and rear cross traffic detection were weighted; for reliability, Consumer Reports reliability scores were considered, in addition to standard vehicle warranty and reported recalls. Within the Family-Friendly category, value, safety, reliability, convenience and comfort were the most important considerations, including such features as seating capacity, rear leg room, standard entertainment systems, cruise control and digital connectivity. Eco-Friendly considerations include fuel economy, eco-friendly features and SmartWay certification from the EPA.

'Audi is committed to providing our customers with exceptional vehicle choices that each offer outstanding driving experiences,' said Filip Brabec, vice president of product management at Audi of America. 'It's an honor to have four Audi models chosen by the Women's Choice Award in the 'safety,' 'reliable' and 'eco-friendly' categories.'

    The 2018 A3 Cabriolet offers the everyday driving characteristics of the sedan, with the fun and versatility of a convertible. Made with innovative materials to help absorb unwanted noise, the A3 Cabriolet folding roof helps keep the interior comfortably quiet when the top is up, and can be automatically folded down at vehicle speeds of up to 31 mph. Interior features include available heated front seats, three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel and six-way power adjustable front seats including four-way power lumbar adjustment.

    Audi A3 Sportback e-tron

    The 2018 A3 Sportback e-tron features a 1.4-liter TFSI® engine and a permanent, magnet-driven electric motor that offers all-electric driving as wanted, and the freedom to drive further when the electric is combined with gasoline. As the only A3 available in a Sportback model, the A3 e-tron offers more than 43.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down, to give customers a premium driving experience with everyday utility. Specially designed for e-tron, the Audi virtual cockpit includes unique displays such as a power meter screen that shows the range and consumption figures for both the electric and gasoline formats.

    Audi TT Coupe

    The 2018 Audi TT Coupe represents the Audi brand's leadership in designing beautiful interiors with exceptional integration of technology. The TT Coupe transforms the way the driver interacts with the vehicle through the innovative Audi virtual cockpit — a standard digital 12.3-inch instrument display that allows the driver to customize information such as audio and available navigation with Google Earth™. The TT also features HVAC controls that eliminate the need for a conventional dash console, instead integrating fan speed, air vent selection and temperature directly into the center of the three central vents, underlining the clean design of the interior.

    Audi Q3

    With agile performance and driver-centric technologies, the compact Audi Q3 crossover combines coupe-like design with the utility of an SUV with available quattro® all-wheel drive. The Q3 features standard S line exterior design elements, heated front seats, panoramic sunroof and more than 48 cubic feet of storage space with rear seats folded. The available Audi side-assist system uses radar sensors and optical warnings to help alert drivers of blind spots, and standard parking system plus with rear view camera detects close objects and provides additional visibility when backing up.
