Audi clean diesel sedan wins ‘Green Car’ award beating the Prius

Audi’s latest clean-diesel sedan, launched in the United States just last month, was named Green Car of the Year at the Los Angeles Auto show on Thursday, upsetting Toyota's popular Prius hybrid for the award.

The Audi A3 TDI, a premium hatchback that gets 42 miles (67.6 km) to the gallon on the highway, is the second clean-diesel vehicle in a row to claim the prize bestowed each year by Green Car Journal magazine. Last year's winner was the Audi A3's corporate cousin, a Volkswagen Jetta. Volkswagen AG (VOWG.DE) owns Audi.

Other finalists for this year's award included the Volkswagen Golf TDI clean-diesel, the Honda Insight hybrid, Ford's Mercury Milan hybrid and the Prius.
