Golden Steering Wheel Awards 2009: Audi A5 Sportback

Andrew Hopkins

It's all change in the class, medium-size and above. Nothing is the way it used to be. The marketing strategies of the car manufacturers serve to mix the various classes and crossover is the new buzzword. There were seven 'crossers ' to choose from in this Golden Steering Wheel category: Audi A5 Sportback, Subaru Legacy, Seat Exeo, BMW 5 series GT, Infiniti G 37, Toyota Avensis and Mercedes E-Class. The Audi A5 Sportback clinched it. This victory for the Audi A5 Sportback represents the18th in the 34-year history of the carmaker with the four rings logo. Audi is now the most successful brand in the competition.
