2018 Audi Q5 and A6 Named “2018 Best Cars for Families” in Their Classes by U.S. News & World Report

  • 2018 Q5 named “Best Luxury Compact SUV” and 2018 A6 named “Best Luxury Midsize Car”
  • Audi tied for most awards won by an individual brand
  • Awards received at New York International Auto Show

At the New York International Auto Show, the 2018 Audi Q5 and 2018 Audi A6 have been named “2018 Best Cars for Families” in their classes by U.S. News & World Report. 

According to U.S. News & World Report, “The Audi Q5, the Best Luxury Midsize SUV for Families, and the Audi A6, the Best Luxury Midsize Car for Families respectively, both won in large part because their backseats are larger than the competition. That extra space makes it easier to install car seats, keep kids in boosters from kicking the front seats and gives teens or older relatives plenty of space to stretch out.”
