The Audi Q7 SUV and A8 luxury limousine were today announced as Australia’s most secure vehicles in their respective classes at the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council (NMVTRC) ‘Secure by Design’ awards in Sydney.
The Audi Q7 took out the award in the ‘large SUV’ category and the A8 won the ‘luxury’ category award. Each of the winning vehicles were expertly assessed against their market competitors in relation to the following criteria:
• entry systems (such as door, ignition and fuel filler locks, rear seat/boot access and glazing);
• theft resistance systems (such as alarms, engine immobilisers, sound systems, wheel and component substitution protection); and
• vehicle identification (body stamping, security labelling and microdotting).
