Audi has been awarded as the manufacturer with the widest range of cars offering five star security protection. The award, known as the BICSA (British Insurance Car Security Awards) goes to the manufacturer producing the widest range of models that satisfy stringent criteria laid down by Thatcham, including the achievement of a five star rating for ‘theft of’ security and a rating of at least four stars for ‘theft from’ security.
Next to this important award, the Q7 was also voted the most theft-proof large 4X4, the TT Roadster voted most secure in the ‘open-top’ sector and the S8 the most impenetrable performance car.
An Audi spokesman said: “I am delighted that we can not only lay claim to offering outstanding security in three important classes, including the highly susceptible open-top segment, but also that our efforts to maximise anti-theft protection right across the range have been recognised. Endorsement by such a highly regarded authority on vehicle security is incredibly gratifying for all at Audi,” he said.
