Autoweek names Audi, Cadillac concepts best in Detroit show

January 13, 2009

Volkswagen, General Motors and Ford walked away with “best in show” recognition from Autoweek magazine for their cars at the Detroit auto show.

Autoweek cited VW’s Audi Sportback concept (right) as “best in show,” with editor Dutch Mandel citing the car’s “stylish looks.” He predicted a production version would hit showrooms by the end of next year for the unanimous decision.

The “best concept” was GM’s Cadillac Converj, a luxury concept version of the Chevrolet Volt all-electric concept introduced two years ago. GM plans to begin selling the Volt by the end of next year. Ford’s 2010 Taurus car was voted “most significant,” while the U.S. automaker’s 2010 Mustang Shelby GT 500 was named “most fun.”
