PostHeaderIcon Audi Bills the 2019 AI:ME Concept as Your Next Megacity Car

Audi’s 2019 Shanghai auto show stand will feature the brand’s idea of an all-electric city car, the AI:ME, a futuristic concept that in the automaker’s own words, “demonstrates how emotion and spatial economy can form a perfect synthesis in an electrically driven compact car.” We have no idea what that exactly means, but we suspect it’s referring to the fact that this study is envisioned to be as space effective as possible for its footprint while offering all the amenities you’ve come to expect from an Audi.

PostHeaderIcon New York The U.S.-Spec 2019 Audi Q3 Shows Up At the New York Auto Show

Introduced globally in July 2018, the second-generation Audi Q3 made its public U.S. debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show. The second-gen Q3, which replaces a dated eight-year old model, brings a sportier design, better tech, and a more powerful engine.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2020 Audi S7 Sportback

The Audi S7 is a high-performance answer to the Mercedes CLS and the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. It’s been on the market since 2012 (as a 2013 model), and 2019 marked its shift into the second generation. And, this shift couldn’t have come at a better time because that old-school grille and boring front end just wasn’t working anymore. But, Audi delivered everything we wanted on a silver platter, with the S7 taking on Audi’s latest design language – including the wider, shorter grille and a rather aggressive front fascia. To make matters even better, Audi was smart enough to keep the designed toned down enough that the new S7 doesn’t get thrown into the same “we’re-trying-too-hard” category with cars like the Honda Civic Type R, for instance. Now, we’re still not sure about Audi dropping that 4.0-liter V-8 engine to replace it with a 2.9-liter V-6 in the U.S. or a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel for Europe, but we haven’t driven the new S7 yet, so we can’t really speak too deeply on the matter. That point aside, we really like the way the 2020 S7 looks, so we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve posted our favorite here but, if you want other choices, check out the gallery at the bottom of the page. We guarantee that you’ll find something you like too.

PostHeaderIcon Audi S6

.split834877

The 2020 Audi S6 is the higher performance version of the fifth-generation A6, also known as the C8. Slotted between the regular A6 and the beefed-up RS6, the S6 bridges the gap between comfort and performance. Only slightly sportier than the A6 design-wise, it features a more powerful engine, a sportier chassis setup, and exclusive features that aren’t available with the standard sedan. The 2020 S6 is the first model of its kind to feature two engine options, including a diesel.

Audi dropped the already traditional 4.0-liter V-8 from the lineup and replaced it with the much newer 2.9-liter V-6. But the twin-turbocharged mill is for the U.S. market only. In Europe, the S6 features a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel. But don’t let the oil burner status fool you. This diesel is plenty powerful, and it delivers notably more torque than its gasoline counterpart. Both engines feature a mild hybrid system and permanent Quattro AWD with torque vectoring. Let’s find out more about them in the review below.

PostHeaderIcon Audi S6 Avant

.split704066

Produced since 1994, the S6 is Audi’s go-faster version of the A6, slotting in under the even-faster RS6 variants. Previously offered as the fourth-generation C7, Audi just unveiled the latest fifth-gen S6, following up on the fifth-gen A6 that debuted at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. Once again offered in a long-roof Avant wagon body style, the latest S6 comes with fresh and sporty styling, oodles of comfort in the cabin, and a new mild-hybrid diesel powertrain under the hood. Read on for everything else this performance wagon is bringing to the table (beyond the groceries, obviously).

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Audi E-Tron Comes From a CO2 Neutral Production Plant in Brussels

Committed to making its facilities carbon-neutral by 2030, Audi started with the e-tron multi-structure plant that covers 540,000 square-meters and is located in Brussels, Belgium. Audi improved the body shop, paint shop, and assembly shop and added a new battery manufacturing plant.

The Brussels facility is blanketed with a 37,000-square-meter photovoltaic system. This enables the generation of more than 3,000 megawatt-hours of electricity, thus saving
700 metric tons of CO2 per year. The Brussels plant is the first in the world with certified carbon-neutral production in the premium auto segment.

Volkswagen also made an eco promise. By the end of the year the Stuttgart factory, set to start producing all-electric Porsche Taycans, will be carbon-neutral as well.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Audi S6 and S7 Have Been Revealed, and There’s No V-8 in Sight

.split567028

Audi isn’t giving up on performance diesel engines just yet, at least not for Europe. Audi just revealed the all-new 2020 S6 (available as either a sedan or wagon) and S7, and they come with different power plants depending on where they’re sold. For Europe, Audi has elected to offer the S6 and S7 a V-6 TDI engine, while in North America, Asia, and other markets, these models will be sold exclusively with a gasoline-powered V-6 TFSI.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Just Teased the AI:Me, Yet Another Tiresome Self-Driving Concept Car

Audi has released sketches of its new concept car called the AI:me that will be unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. The AI:me is Audi’s vision of a fully autonomous city car. The basic outline reminds you of the Audi A2, but with not so contemporary and conventional looks. Unlike the automaker’s last concept, the Q4 e-tron EV, this one looks like a far-fetched thought. Will it hit the production line anytime soon?

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Mercedes AMG A35 sedan VS 2019 Audi S3 sedan

.split832638

Mercedes was obviously making a car to go up against the Audi S3 when it created the AMG A35 model to sit beneath the full-blown A45 model in the range. The A45 is aimed to compete against the RS3, so the A35 is for those who want most of the look and performance of an A45, but without the harsh edge associated with these more hardcore cars.

The new AMG A35 sedan was just revealed, and it’s about as close a rival to the S3 as one could hope for. They are evenly matched in terms of size, power, and performance, although they adopt very different visual styles. Even mechanically they are similar, relying on 2.0-liter turbocharged engines, all-wheel drive and their brand’s known sporting pedigree in order to stand out.

But the Audi S3 is a familiar name that’s been around for a lot longer than A35, but then again, until 2017 there was no S3 sedan, so the formula is fairly new. These cars really couldn’t be better matched – it’s clear that the two manufacturers were studying one another while they were developing these two models.

The S3 sedan didn’t really have any natural rivals, but now that the A35 sedan has come along and hot versions of BMW’s upcoming 1-Series sedan and 2-Series Grand Coupe are also in the pipeline, this segment will be heating up soon. One could argue that the A35 sedan is one of the biggest reasons for it.

PostHeaderIcon Video: 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Vs. 2019 Audi Q8 – Luxury Coupe SUV Showdown

Stuttgart just unveiled the latest addition to its Cayenne SUV lineup – the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe, which brings all the speed and finery of the standard Cayenne, but with a lower, sportier roofline. This thing certainly looks like its got what it takes to be a success in the segment, but how does it compare to its German sibling from the Four Rings, a.k.a. the 2019 Audi Q8?

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS6 Avant

The new Audi RS6 Avant has been spotted covered in partial camouflage while making the test rounds recently. The high-performance wagon model of the A6 sedan is the latest Audi model to be captured by spy photographers. If anything, this shows that Audi’s test drivers have had their work cut out of them. The sporty station wagon was even spotted alongside the RS Q8 SUV.

Update 03/27/2019: We’ve received some new spy shots of the 2020 Audi RS6, This time in full production form. Check out the latest in our ”Spy Shots” section below.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s New Four-Cylinder Race Engine is a 610-Horsepower Beast

Audi just unveiled an incredibly powerful 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine for its Audi RS5 DTM racing car. With a power output of 610 horsepower and half the weight of the 4.0-liter, V-8 it replaces, the new engine does not only provide 110 horsepower more than before, but it also slashed the weight of the DTM racer to 2,200 pounds. However, DTM practically summoned it with the change of rules in the DTM championship.

With the new DTM championship season warming up to start in May, the manufacturers are getting ready to compete following the new set of rules. The most significant change is the decision to dismiss the 4.0-liter, V-8, naturally aspirated engines in favor of the new, 2.0-liter, turbocharged fours. All in a move to close the gap between the road cars and its racing avatars in the DTM. What is more, DTM capped the power output for engines used in racing cars to 620 horsepower (plus 30 horsepower more for the push-to-pass maneuvers). That means that Audi did what the regulations allowed. If regulations allowed that this turbocharged, 2.0-liter engine could have up to 1,000 horsepower, Audi would make it like that. It happened already.

PostHeaderIcon Audi RS4 Avant

At a time when wagons are slowly evolving from being family haulers to performance beasts, people in the U.S. are missing out on a lot of action. The Audi RS4 and the RS6 Avant give us the major #FOMO feels. Audi has told wagon-lovers in the U.S. not to give up hopes yet, as the company said, “We always look at potential new opportunities in the market. It’s a niche to explore. We keep holding discussions. Keep writing us letters.” That’s not a confirmation in any way, but it sounds like an assurance for the time being. The namesake fast wagon from the German automaker’s stable that we have here is the Audi A4 Allroad. Although we were mighty impressed with the wagon, it is no substitute for the RS4 Avant, and, that is why we need the Lord of the four rings to ship those beauties our way as soon as possible. You listening, Audi?

PostHeaderIcon It Looks Like Audi Will Be Retiring the TT After All

The Audi TT is one of the very few sports cars that even non-enthusiasts are familiar with. The TT has been a true icon over the last couple of decades, but it looks like its time is up. The sports car segment is overflowing with fantastic machines that have, essentially, rendered the TT as an old-timer. Now that the company is finding it difficult to move it out of the showroom, Audi’s CEO has hinted that the car may not see the light of the day after this generation has exceeded its lifespan.

PostHeaderIcon Audi R8 V10 Decennium

Ten years ago, Audi shocked the auto world when it uncorked an all-wheel drive, ten-cylinder supercar that ushered in a new era of performance for the German automaker. This year, the Audi R8 turns a decade old, and Audi’s throwing a party for its beloved performance machine with a special edition model called the R8 V10 Decennium. Taken from the Latin word that literally means “decade,” the R8 V10 Decennium is a fitting ode to a supercar that played a huge role in redefining the supercar segment. Only 222 models of the anniversary R8 will be available. Each model is priced at €220,000, which converts to about $250,000 based on current exchange rates. The Audi R8 Decennium becomes available starting in the spring of 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Audi Drive the E-Tron SUV up an 85-Percent Ski Slope

If you’re an Audi fan, and you’re getting up there in age, you probably remember when the Audi 100 CS Turbo Quattro sedan managed to climb the Kaipola Olympic Ski Jumping Hill in Finland. If you remember that, you remember it didn’t do it without at least a little help – outside of its all-wheel-drive system, it also had studded winter tires. If you weren’t around to see this happen yourself, we’ve included the video a little further below. For now, however, you’re probably wondering why this is relevant today – after all, that happened some 30 years ago. Well, it’s relevant because Audi is back to its old gimmicks yet again, this time climbing the Mausefalle slope of the Streif in Kitzbuhel, Austria with the all-new Audi e-Tron EV. The catch? This slope sits at an 85-percent grade, which means it’s nearly vertical.

PostHeaderIcon Audi SQ5 TDI

Audi released the new 2019 Audi SQ5 TDI, and it will showcase the brute at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Yet, before I get into all the “what’s new” jazz, let me give you some perspective here, right in the introduction. The 2015 Ford Mustang GT comes with a V-8 with 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque and can accelerate to 60 in 4.4 seconds. The 2016 Chevy Camaro SS comes with a V-8 with 455 horsepower and 455 pound-feet of torque and can accelerate to 60 in 4.3 seconds. The 2018 Durango SRT comes with a V-8 with 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque and can accelerate to 60 in 4.4 seconds. Now, the new Audi SQ5 TDI isn’t as quick. It will accelerate to 60 mph in 5 seconds. So, around half a second slower, but not far off.

So, why the hell am I mentioning American muscle cars here? Well, unlike them, Audi doesn’t run on gasoline, it does not have a V-8, and its engine is around 25-percent smaller in terms of displacement compared to any of the cars listed here. Ladies and gentlemen, I know that comparing a compact SUV with muscle cars and a massive SUV like the Dodge Durango is, basically, blasphemy, but the Audi SQ5 is that insane, amazing, and incredible. In its newest iteration it is, by far, the most amazing diesel-powered performance SUV I know of. Yes, Alpina does have that mad BMW X3-based XD3 with 388 horsepower, but I consider that to be an aftermarket offering despite the car being produced on the same production line as the regular X3.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s SUV Family is Now Complete with the 2020 Q4 Concept’s Arrival at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show

Audi has released a handful of teaser renderings of the Q4 e-Tron Concept, an electric compact crossover study. The concept, which will make its début at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, finally unlocks the mystery on when Audi plans to use the Q4 name, the last holdout to the automaker’s Q-family of crossovers and SUVs. Teasers notwithstanding, details about the Q4 e-Tron Concept are scarce at this point, but since it’s carrying the “e-Tron” name, we can at least confirm that this concept will be of the electric persuasion. The Q4 e-Tron Concept’s information mother lode drops in Geneva, which starts on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Audi A4 Allroad

Estates have always been looked upon as family and luggage haulers. They were never meant to be attractive, fast, or adventurous. These vehicles were boring, but very practical. But with time, estates, aka wagons, started getting glamorous and confident, and lately, even luxurious. One classic example of the same is the Audi A4 Allroad. Other than the slight body roll and the long tail, it is a perfect blend of a sedan’s ride and handling and an SUVs practicality and off-roading capabilities.
