”cs best brand”

Audi ranked as Consumer Reports' Best Car Brand for 2017. Don't worry, BMW wasn't too far behind in the third spot. The big surprises are Mercedes-Benz, with how good their sales have been, I thought they would have ranked higher than 20th and VW, who got the global sales crown, ended up 23rd.

The influential American Consumer Reports magazine has ranked Audi the “best car brand” in 2017 in an extensive survey. This is the second consecutive year that Audi has captured first place. Dietmar Voggenreiter, Board Member for Marketing and Sales at AUDI AG: “2016 was a record year for Audi in the United States, our third largest global market. We are extremely honored by this distinction and we view it as incentive to keep delighting our customers in the US with sporty, efficient and increasingly connected cars.”

The online edition of Consumer Reports announced the results of the “Which brands make the best vehicles?” survey in advance: Audi is the overall winner, followed by Porsche in second place and BMW in third. The survey includes the categories road test, reliability, owner satisfaction and safety.

Consumer Reports additionally selects its “10 Top Picks of 2017: Best Cars of the Year.” In this list, Audi topped the luxury SUV category with the Audi Q7. Consumer Reports is an independent American organization that tests, rates and compares everyday products and presents the results in a monthly magazine.

But at least that means they're not cheating smog tests... maybe...

I think this particular "award" is meaningless.
In no world is the Q7 in the same category as a BMW M car or Porsche 911. It's a laughable comparison.

I think there most be drugs involved, or other shenanigans.
