2022 Audi A5 Coupe - Performance, Price, and Photos

2022 Audi A5 Coupe - Performance, Price, and Photos

The Audi A5 could be the perfect blend between luxury, performance, and price

If you are looking for a luxury yet not-too-powerful two-door coupe, the A5 Coupe might be the best choice for you. This four-ringed car is a lot better looking than the more practical A5 Sportback but shares the same powertrain, interior features, and all the Audi goodness. The 261-horsepower yielding 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot sends power to all four wheels and is mated to a seven-speed DCT. Among all the other A5 variants; Sportback, Cabriolet, and Coupe, we love the Coupe for its athletic stance along with the cabin aesthetics. While the A5 Coupe is reserved for the mass, Audi also offers more spirited S5 and RS5 versions to bring out the enthusiast inside you. But, how will it perform when you compare it to the top dogs such as the BMW 4 Series, and the Lexus RC?

2022 Audi RS Q8 By Lumma Design

Lumma Design follows up its performance upgrade kit with this aesthetic kit

Back in 2020, Lumma Design offered its first tuning kit for the Audi RS Q8. Two years later, the tuner decided to revisit its kit and is now offering a facelift for its CLR 8 RS package. Since the first time it managed to squeeze more than 100 horsepower from the twin-turbocharged V-8 engine, it decided that the updates should only be limited to the car’s exterior look.

2022 Audi A3

The A3 kicks off its third generation with a new design, a long list of features, and it is an MHEV by default

Audi makes yet another attempt to make its entry level sedan people’s favorite and is in its all-new third-generation avatar. With an increase of just $600 to its starting price tag over the outgoing generation, the 2022 Audi A3 packs more value than it ever did before, and it is an MHEV now. But, can it withstand the respective Bimmer and Merc?

2022 Audi A8

2022 Audi A8

The perfect S-Class competitor got fancier with a facelift which includes a newer grille design and lights.

After the S-Class redesign, it seems that Audi had its plans to renovate the existing A8 for the 2022 model year with more modern lighting tech for both the front and rear, along with subtle improvements on the inside to make way for the younger buyers who love tech. Audi sells the A8 L, which is the long-wheelbase version of the standard A8, in the U.S. for added comfort for the rear row. So, is it the ultimate full-size luxury sedan for its asking price of $86,500? Let’s find out.

2022 Manhart RQ 800

818 horsepower under the hood will put the Urus to shame

The Audi RS Q8 is the most powerful SUV Audi has to offer, and just a detuned version of the Lamborghini Urus. And, despite being a heavy SUV - 5,291 pounds - it still goes from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds. German tuner Manhart found a way to improve things even further, despite not offering any aerodynamic upgrades.

2022 Audi SQ5 TDI By ABT Sportsline

Who said a diesel can’t be a lot more fun that the maker intends it to be

The Audi SQ5 is already a significant upgrade over the base Q5. For example, customers in the States will get a significant upgrade of an extra 100 horsepower when choosing the SQ5 over the base Q5. In Europe, though, there are a lot of tuners that will find ways to make this difference even bigger. The last one to do so is ABT Sportsline, who is offering an upgrade kit for the SQ5 TDI - both standard and Sportback versions.

2021 Audi A8 L Horch

A China-only luxury sedan that is born to rival the Maybach.

Audi resurrected its luxury brand name, Horch, with the introduction of the ultra-lux A8 L and the A8 L Horch will be a China-exclusive model, as the market has more cravings for long-wheelbase luxury sedans. It will go head-to-head with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class which has been the German-marque of ultra-luxury. Does the A8 L Horch have what it takes?

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

Not as powerful as the previous Johann Abt Signature Edition, but still a lot of power for a station wagon

In June 2021 ABT was presenting the ‘Johann Abt Signature Edition’” - a model based on the Audi RS6 Avant built to commemorate the company’s 125th anniversary. It was limited to only 64 units, and, because of its 790 horsepower under the hood, it enjoyed huge success. Actually, it was sold out in no time.

At the customers’ request, ABT is offering a successor for it: the RS6-S. The new model was launched at the same time as the RSQ8-S and will be available starting January 2022.

2022 Audi RSQ8-S by ABT

With 740 horsepower under the hood, the RSQ8-R is a lot more powerful than the Urus!

Back in 2020, ABT announced the RSQ8-R - a package based on the Audi RS Q8 that increased the power up to a total of 700 horsepower. Of course, the car was sold in no time and customers asked for a replacement. Their wishes will come true as, in January 2022, ABT will be offering a new package for the Q8 RS: the new RSQ8-S.

2023 Audi Q9

What can we expect from Audi’s upcoming full-size SUV?

Rumors of a new full-size Audi SUV have been circulating for a long time and now there’s actual proof that Audi is indeed cooking a new flagship SUV model. Recently, a fully-camouflaged Audi SUV has been spotted testing at Volkswagen’s test facility in Sweden, doing cold-weather testing. With BMW’s introduction of the X7 and Mercedes’s GLS already on sale for some years, it only made sense for Audi to bring out a competitor. Here’s what we know so far.

Update 10-27-2021: The Audi Q9 has been spotted once again, this time doing some on-road testing in warmer weather.

Mansory takes the already awesome Audi RS7 and makes it even better

The RS7 is probably one of the most beautiful cars in Audi’s lineup. But since even the most beautiful cars out there can be further upgraded, Mansory found a solution to make the RS7 even better looking. The famous tuner came with an upgrade kit, that not only changes the look of the RS7, but it also makes it even more powerful and faster.

2022 Audi Q4 e-tron

2022 Audi Q4 e-tron

The latest e-tron model comes with a dual-motor setup, 323 miles of range, and a plethora of design themes and packages

Audi has jumped into one of the most popular segments today with two new electric offerings, the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron. These compact SUVs could be a game-changer for Audi and bring in huge volumes once launched. Both of them are essentially the same vehicle other than the sloping roofline on the Sportback, which seems to be quite a popular option these days. For now, the company has revealed the Euro-spec models and trim details, but we can expect pretty much the same stuff Stateside, too.

2022 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron

2022 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron

Launched alongside the standard Q4 e-tron, it comes with the same specs and features, but is more aerodynamic-efficient and is priced marginally higher

Audi is one of the most proactive brands in the electric market today. The company has added two more models based on the Q4 in its e-tron lineup today – the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron. Sportbacks seem to be big sellers for automakers these days and this has prompted the German automaker to come up with the sloping roofline version as well as the conventional SUV body style for its Q4-based e-tron.

Both the models have the same specs and features. The biggest differentiating factors are the shape at the rear and the pricing. With stuff like 300+ mile-range, dual-motor setup on offer, and many tech features, can the Q4 e-tron twins bring huge sales volumes for the company?

2021 Audi Q5 Sportback

The Q5 Sportback is Audi’s offering to growing coupe segment

For the folks who like their SUVs with coupè-like sloping rooflines, here’s Audi’s latest product – the Q5 Sportback. Audi calls them Crossover Utility Vehicles, and the Q5 Sportback is the third product in this lineup, following the Q3 Sportback and the e-tron Sportback. The Q5 Sportback is Audi’s take on the BMW X4 and the Mercedes GLC Coupe. The Q5 Sportback commands a premium of $4,500 over the SUV style for mainly an exterior appearance package, sleeker looks, and some other minor aesthetic upgrades. Is it worth it? Well, you tell us.

2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT

2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT

The tuner has equipped the SUV with new wheels and a host of other add-ons inside-out, but hasn’t made any performance upgrades

ABT is back with another Audi build, this time for the SQ7. The automaker recently ditched the diesel engine from this vehicle and dropped an even more powerful V-8 gasoline mill under the hood. In the standard form, the SUV comes with 500+ horses, which is already on the higher end. So, ABT decided to give this bit a skip for this build and went ahead with making changes to the interior and the exterior. The aesthetic changes are significant and make the already-hot SQ7 even hotter.

2022 Audi RS3

2022 Audi RS3

Audi’s AMG A45 fighter promises to be a feisty one

Being the cheapest RS model from the company’s performance heritage, the RS3 is a serious machine with absolute bonkers of performance and presence with updated tech and mechanics which were absent in the 2020 model year.

The Managing Director of Audi Sport, Sebastian Grams stated that “with the third generation of the Audi RS 3 Sportback and the second generation of Audi RS 3 Sedan, we now offer premium sports cars that are suitable for everyday use and equally thrilling to drive on public roads and racetracks”.

2021 Audi SQ5 TDI

2021 Audi SQ5 TDI

Yes, TDI, because in Europe diesel is still a thing and Audi wants to capitalize on that

If there’s a crossover you could call balanced from a visual standpoint in Audi’s lineup that would be the Q5 and subsequently, its performance-oriented SQ5 cousin. Maybe it’s just us, but it just looks right and well-proportioned and as of now, those who love oil burners can now buy Audi’s diesel-centric take on performance.

Here’s all you need to know about the SQ5 TDI.

2020 Audi RSQ8 by Mansory

2020 Audi RSQ8 by Mansory

This is arguably one of the smartest builds to have rolled out of Mansory’s factory

Audi wagons and SUVs are a hit among tuners. We’ve seen ABT, Lumma, and many other aftermarket tuners come up with special signature twists on these vehicles. Now, Mansory has laid its hands on the Audi RS Q8. What’s surprising is that the RS Q8 doesn’t go through a radical, bizarre aesthetic-twist, as we saw in the case of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan Coastline, the Lamborghini Urus Venatus, and the Mercedes-AMG G63 Star Trooper. I mean, the changes are more than evident, but it isn’t dressed in colors that would win it a prize at a fancy-dress competition.

2021 Audi Q8 TFSI E Quattro (Hybrid)

Audi is rounding up the Q8 range with a plug-in hybrid

Call it what you will but to our eyes, the Audi Q8 is a neatly executed example of what a “SUV-coupe” must look like. That or our brain has been bombarded with some many iterations of this car body style that we’ve learned to live with it.

In any case, Audi is not about superficiality and that’s why the Q8 can now be ordered with a new powertrain. A plug-in hybrid one, to be more precise, featuring a larger battery pack and two system outputs.
