· Audi A4 tops overall ranking in the DEKRA report
· First place goes to Audi for the fifth time in a row
Stuttgart/Ingolstadt - The Audi A4 has finished top of the DEKRA Used Car Report for 2012 as the car with the lowest fault rate. This means that Audi has won the overall ranking for the fifth time in a row. The A1, A5, TT and Q5 each came top of their respective categories.
Each year, the DEKRA experts award the title “Best of All Classes” to the model with the lowest fault rate across three mileage classes. Since the ranking was launched in 2008, of all brands the most reliable car with the fewest faults has always been an Audi. This is the second “Best of All Classes” distinction for the Audi A4; the Audi A6 earned this accolade from 2008 through 2010. The title underscores the impressive long-term manufactured quality of the brand with the four rings.
As part of the Used Car Report, which previously went under the name of the Faults Report, the DEKRA testing organization examines the quality and safety of vehicles. From a total of 15 million cars examined, which are divided into eight different categories, DEKRA creates a specific fault profile in three mileage classes for each type of car. The model with the best average from all three mileage classes is named “Best of All Classes.”
The Audi A1 is top of the sub-50,000 kilometer mileage class, and in the 50,000 to 100,000 kilometer bracket the A5, TT and Q5 are each top of their respective segments.
