					Audi Wins 2012 Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year Awards for Audi A7 and Audi Q7

Orange County, California, October 26, 2011 – Audi brought home two 2012 Active Lifestyle
Vehicle of the Year awards this past weekend at the competition hosted on October 22, 2011.
Over 32 unique vehicles were put to the test by elite local athletes and media specialists to
determine which ones were best suited for an active outdoor lifestyle. Audi came up on top in
multiple categories.

Audi was presented with two awards at the 2012 Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year
competition. The Audi A7 won the Luxury On-Road category and the Audi Q7 TDI won in the
Family Vehicle category. Every car was put through a series of tests to compete for the top
honors in each category. The judging panels were presented with an overview of the vehicle and
its specifications, capacities, and features, and then each judging panel was taken on one on-road
trial and two off-road trials held in the rugged Sonoran desert of Phoenix, Arizona. The point of
the competition was to judge how effectively each vehicle meets the needs of active outdoor
athletes. In addition to the test drives, each vehicle was judged according to overall design,
engine power, fuel efficiency, utility, and cargo space. The judging panel consisted of
automotive media experts and teams of elite recreational athletes including triathletes, ironman
competitors, mountain bikers, and rock climbers.

This is great news for active Orange County Audi fans. Thanks to the moderate weather and
diverse landscape, California is known for supporting an active outdoor lifestyle for bikers,
swimmers, runners, surfers, and climbers. “Our local community of Orange County Audi drivers
will be glad to hear the news,” states Santa Ana Commonwealth Audi General Manager Mike
Westbrook. “The Audi A7 and the Audi Q7 TDI are both great options for people who need a
sporty car that looks great, performs well, and has room for all the things that make life fun like a
surfboard, bike, or hiking gear.”

Orange County residents can check out the Audi A7 and Audi Q7 TDI for themselves and even
take it for a test drive at Commonwealth Audi in Santa Ana, California. The Audi A7 is an
athletic 5 door coupe featuring a 3.0L Supercharged V6 engine. Sleek and powerful, the Audi A7
offers drivers all the best in premium German engineering and luxury style, technology, and
comfort. The Audi Q7 TDI is a unique luxury SUV. Powerful, fuel-efficient, and capable of
seating seven with plenty of storage space left over, it is no wonder it took top honors in the
Family Vehicle category. Both cars can be seen at Commonwealth Audi, and are available in a
variety of model packages to suit your own athletic lifestyle.
