A new study into the planet’s top car brands has once again awarded the German-built Audi in the number one spot based on its performance, reliability, owner satisfaction and safety.

The results do not include the corporate behaviour of the manufacturer, that said, the much maligned Volkswagen faired worse than average.

The full results were as follows:
