To ensure Audi stays on top of its game, the German carmaker conducts an internal competition wherein dealers participate. Called the Audi Twin Cup, it witnesses dealer teams showcasing their technical know-how and customer orientation.

This time, in the seventh edition, there were a total of 123 teams (from 37 dealers), consisting of 370 technicians and service advisors. They were judged on the areas of diagnostics, repair, and personal customer support. Audi Gurgaon emerged as the winner in the Technology category, while the team from Audi Bhubaneshwar won in the Service category. The two teams will represent India at a global stage in 2018, wherein they’ll compete with around 70 teams from 38 countries.

“The Audi Twin Cup is an initiative to recognize our dealer partners delivering exceptional customer service. We have invested extensively in training our staff over the years for strengthening the service levels.

It is clearly reflected in the excellent performance of the team representing Audi India at the recently concluded World championship of the Audi Twin Cup 2017, ” said Mr. Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India.

He further continued, This year too, the competition had been fierce amongst the competing teams with excellent demonstration of technical knowledge and service coordination.
