Two 2012 Audi models - the A8 and A6 - have met wild success in this year's APEAL study from J.D. Power and Associates. Wondering which models took home the coveted award? The new Audi A8 received the highest ratings of any other large luxury auto assessed. The same can be said for the 2012 A6 within the midsize segment. What's more, J.D. Power and Associates have designated the 2012 Audi A8 as the highest-performing vehicle overall.
Looking at Audi's performance in the APEAL study, year over year, we can see that the highly-esteemed luxury automaker has boosted their overall score by 13 points. So you can gauge that ranking; 13 points is most impressive - enough to move Audi up one position to 4/34. The four main categories J.D Powers asks study participates to scrutinize within the first 90 days of ownership are design, content, layout and performance.
What is Audi doing that's earned them such notable gains?
According to Audi of America President, Scott Keogh, "[It's] a result of unwavering focus on developing premium vehicles that are intelligent in design, progressive in technology, and exceptional in performance?"
Aside from performance and a sleek-sophisticated design, the feature that sets the Audi A8 apart from its competitors is Audi connect, which provides drivers on-the-go access to Google Earth, Google Local Search, Google Voice Local Search, real-time weather updates, fuel prices and news updates - not to mention Wi-Fi connection for up to eight mobile devices.
As for the Audi A6 sedan's claims to fame: HUD, MMI touch pad complete with writing recognition (in multiple languages), thermal imaging camera with night-vision assist, and Audi pre-sense plus driver assistance program immediately come to mind.
