Double victory for Alfa Romeo in Germany

 

Over 16,000 readers of the renowned car magazine cast their votes for the "Autonis" award. For the second year in a row, Alfa Romeo was named "Design Brand of the Year" while the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio won the "Large SUV" category.

 

Alfa Romeo's design has resonated once again with readers of Germany's renowned car magazine "Auto Motor Und Sport". In this year's edition of the annual "Autonis" awards, readers named Alfa Romeo "Design Brand of the Year" while the award for the "Large SUV" category went to the latest addition to the Italian brand's portfolio, the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

 

"We are honoured that readers of Auto, Motor Und Sport once again named Alfa Romeo as one of the best designs in the industry" said Klaus Busse, Head of Design FCA EMEA, during the prize giving ceremony in Stuttgart. "This is an important recognition for Alfa Romeo - being recognised by German car enthusiasts as the leading design for two years in a row and seeing Stelvio - the very first SUV in Alfa Romeo's history - win its category, just as the Giulia did last year, is very rewarding for our design team and shows we are on the right track".

 

Alfa Romeo has recorded several successes at the "Autonis" awards throughout the years. In 2016, Alfa Romeo won the "Design Brand of the Year" award, while the then-new Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Alfa Romeo MiTo scored victories in their respective classes. In 2010 the readers of "Auto, Motor Und Sport" selected the Alfa Romeo Giulietta as the best-looking car in the compact class.

 

A total of 16,602 "Auto, Motor Und Sport" readers (printed magazine and web-based content) cast their votes in ten categories for the 17th edition of the "Autonis" awards. More than half of the votes (50.5 per cent) went to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, crowning it the winner of the "Large SUV" category. Alfa Romeo won the "Design Brand of the Year" award for the second year in a row, receiving 27 per cent of the votes.
