The Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) gathers every spring to test drive cars from various manufactures in order to dole out their prestigious annual awards. This year, the number of awards blossomed to cover 18 categories (everything is bigger in Texas, after all). Chrysler Group was the big winner, nabbing eight awards, including three for Chrysler brand vehicles.
Town & Country is the winner of more major awards than anyone in its class ever, so it should come as no surprise that the 2012 Town & Country took home two awards from TAWA – the “Family Car of Texas” and the “Minivan of Texas.” The 2012 Chrysler 300 Luxury Series, recently recognized for having one of the “10 Best Interiors” for 2012, was named “Full-Size Luxury Car of Texas.”
“With 58 vehicle entries competing in 18 different categories, our members were clearly impressed with the Chrysler Group vehicle line-up,” said Michael Herzing, President – TAWA. The Chrysler brand line-up continues to excite consumers and journalists alike. We’re honored to win these Texas-sized awards from one of the most respected auto writers associations in the country.
