Audi A3 named 2014 World Car of the YearThu, 17 Apr 2014
As usual, the second press day of the New York Auto Show was kicked off by the World Car of the Year Awards. Rather than fluff things up, we'll cut right to the chase: top honors go to the brand-new Audi A3, which bested the Mazda3 and BMW 4 Series for the all-important award.
Of course, the wonderful thing about the World Car awards is that there isn't just one big announcement – other honors are given out for specific categories. Here are the other winners from this year's ceremony:
- World Green Car of the Year: BMW i3
- World Car Design of the Year: BMW i3
- World Performance Car of the Year: Porsche 911 GT3
- World Luxury Car of the Year: Mercedes-Benz S-Class
