Business Insider’s 2016 Infotainment System of the Year Goes to Audi!

The Audi MMI/Virtual Cockpit won over the transportation team at business insider, making it a no brainer as the 2016 infotainment System of the year. The ability to stay connected in today’s world is essential with the increasing demand for immediate connectivity. According to Business Insider, “A great infotainment system makes car ownership a pleasure. A poor system makes it a chore. Consumers are far more demanding these days than they were just five years ago. And they’re going to get more demanding, as 24/7 connectedness continues to define their lives.”

“Think of this as built-in intuition.” Audiusa.com reports, “The Audi MMI operating system allows you to instinctively manage an array of systems including navigation, entertainment, interior, even ride dynamics on models with Audi drive select. The result is a balance of simplicity, intuitiveness and elegance to enhance your ownership experience.”


Staying connected isn’t the only thing Audi wanted to achieve when designing their Virtual cockpit. They also wanted to provide their driver with the ultimate safety keeping their attention on the road.

Safety First

According to Business insider, “Of course, not all trends are good ones: Consumer Reports has noted frequent owner complaints about balky infotainment systems; and the issue of distracted driving is of paramount importance.”
“Reliability, ease-of-use, precision (especially when it comes to navigation) and the ability of a system to be operated while driving without endangering anyone were key criteria for our choice — which involved debate and discussion all year long among Senior Correspondent Matt DeBord, Transportation Reporters Ben Zhang and Danielle Muoio, and Senior Transportation Editor Cadie Thompson (Evening News Editor and West Coast car buff Bryan Logan also kicked in his thoughts).”

Consumer Reports tested new models to select the best cars of 2016

engine

Consumer Reports tested more than 70 new car models and found the Audi Q7, Lincoln MKX, and Honda Civic to be among the best.

Every year, dozens of new and completely redesigned vehicles are introduced to the automotive marketplace in the United States. Consumer Reports, a nonprofit organization that provides unbiased product testing and ratings, takes these new models and puts them to the test. Every new car is rigorously tested and only the best-of-the-best receive a Consumer Reports top rating.

In 2016, Consumer Reports chose six new models as the best cars of the year. On the list were the Audi Q7, BMW 7 Series, Honda Civic, Kia Optima, Lincoln MKX, and Toyota Prius. Each of these models showed fresh style, excellent functionality, and creative touches.

Audi Q7

audi-q7

The three-row Audi SUV made the list, having proven to Consumer Reports that you really can have it all. They praised the SUV for its athletic handling, powerful engine, and commendable 20 mpg. With an inviting interior, “cushy ride”, and standard safety features, the Audi Q7 is great choice for drivers in the luxury SUV market.

Lincoln MKX

lincoln-mkx

The Lincoln MKX is a midsized SUV based off of the non-luxury Ford Edge. Consumer Reports commends the American car company for creating an SUV that “instills confidence and puts a smile on your face”. In the Lincoln MKX, you can expect a quiet, tranquil ride surrounded by a luxury interior and “supremely” comfortable seats.

Honda Civic

blue-civic-coupe-side1

The Honda compact sedan made its way back to the top of the list, overcoming shortcomings from the previous Civic generations. The sedan offers drivers a refined ride and excellent handling. The interior offers passengers a roomy ride and high-quality materials, which Consumer Reports called a “huge improvement” for the model. With a “sufficiently powerful” engine, the Civic gives you 32 mpg and the option for a stronger turbo.

While Consumer Reports sang praise for these six models, not everyone was feeling the love. Among the vehicles named the worst of 2016 were the Smart ForTwo pint-sized city car, and the similarly fuel-efficient Chevrolet Spark designed for city driving.

Wards 10 Best User Experiences evaluates the user-friendliness of a vehicle’s tech and safety systems.

WardsAuto recently announced the winners of their 2016 Wards 10 Best UX competition, and six Military AutoSource manufacturers made the list: Audi, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, and Mercedes-Benz.

The User Experience competition is a spin-off of Wards 10 Best Interiors, which judges a vehicle’s interior on a more broad spectrum, looking at aesthetic, ergonomic and design aspects. The 10 Best UX list looks at a vehicle’s touchscreens, navigation systems, infotainment, voice controls and  smartphone connection efficiency.

RELATED: The all-new Audi TTS made the Wards 10 Best Interiors list 

Drew Winter, WardsAuto Senior Content Director, said that judges are “trying to quantify how easy it is overall to interact with a vehicle.” They are checking to see if the controls are easy to understand and work as they are designed to. They also check that driver-assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise control and lane warnings, are reliable.

After two months of evaluating 29 all-new or redesigned light vehicles available in the United States, the WardsAuto editors selected their top 10 choices. Among that list are the Audi Q7, Chrysler Pacifica, Ford Escape, Honda Ridgeline, Infiniti Q50, and Mercedes E-Class.

Visit WardsAuto.com to read what made these six vehicles stand out, earning them a spot on the list. To learn about your privileged military pricing on Audi, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, and Mercedes-Benz, visit www.militaryautosource.com
