Audi has been accredited as being the UK’s most secure vehicle manufacturer at the 2008 British Insurance Car Security Awards.
The Vorsprung durch Technik brand scooped three category wins as well as winning the overall Manufacturer of the Year Award for producing the highest number of cars which offer a five-star level of security.
Audi’s cause was aided through the implementation of innovations such as Thatcham Category 1 alarm and immobiliser technology with interior ultrasonic protection, Thatcham Category 4 locking wheel bolts, anti-tow tilt sensors, visible Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) and extensive marked parts across its range.
"I am delighted that the huge investment we have channelled into protective measures for all our cars has proved its worth yet again in Thatcham," commented Jeremy Hicks, director of Audi UK.
"To be acknowledged as number one for car security for a third consecutive year is an achievement which Audi AG’s security team can take considerable pride in."
Audi’s other wins came in the most secure in compact executive class, S8 best in performance car class and TT Roadster best in Convertible/Roadster class categories.
