2020 Audi SQ7
The current-generation Audi SQ7 was only unveiled last year, but it didn’t take Audi long to start developing an updated version of the punchy SUV. That appears to be the case as new spy photos of an SQ7 test mule have been spotted in the wild. The prototype appeared in the wild with another test vehicle — likely the Q7 — in what can only be described as the latest evidence that Audi isn’t sitting on its laurels when it comes to giving its two performance SUVs the necessary updates that’ll keep it fresh in the eyes of consumers.
Update 01/10/2019: The 2020 Audi SQ7 is being put through pre-production, cold-weather testing and is probably in the final stages of testing. A debut should be coming in the next few months, but until then, we have a fresh batch of spy shots located in the gallery at the bottom of this article. Enjoy!
Reviewers Try Out The New All-Electric 2019 Audi e-Tron Quattro SUV
The luxury electric crossover and SUV market just got a new and serious contender, in the form of the new Audi e-Tron high-rider which was officially launched not too long ago. Journos have tried it out and, since this is an Audi we’re talking about, their first impressions of the car are a bit predictable. What we didn’t expect, however, is to hear complaints about the E-Tron Quattro’s performance.
15 Must-Know Facts About The Stunning Audi E-Tron GT
We are prepared for the all-out invasion of electric cars from the Volkswagen Group. Audi showed a clear path to electrification with the E-Tron SUV, the Aicon, and even that crazy PB18, but now we have been introduced to the gorgeous Audi E-Tron GT. As a saloon, the E-Tron GT tends to be the ultimate expression of Audi’s own electric future by combining state-of-the-art technology with electric propulsion and framing it all into a form so gorgeous it’ll mess with your mind.
Actually, it is so gorgeous that it will make an appearance in The Avengers. Even if we disregard The Avengers, the Audi E-Tron GT is filled with such wonders that I am rather smitten by its presence and the technology included in one package. I will present you 15 astounding facts about the new Audi E-Tron GT - basically the first car to match the stature of the Tesla Model S. And in my eyes, to shatter that stature to pieces.
It is that beautiful.
Tesla powertrain and batteries completely transform this Audi RS5
The Audi RS5, built between 2010 and 2015, was powered by a screaming, high-revving, V-8 engine and was widely acknowledged as being one of the best of its kind. However, what do you do when your car doesn’t have an engine or its engine is junk and you need to replace it with something else? How about you slot in a Tesla motor and battery pack to see how that transforms the car.
How Much is the Audi E-Tron GT Concept Going to Change as it Shifts Into Production?
We were all stunned by the looks of Audi’s E-Tron GT Concept that the German Automaker unexpectedly unveiled at the L.A. Autoshow. The electric four-door coupe is slated to become the benchmark performance model in the E-Tron range and is co-developed with Audi’s competition arm, Audi Sport. What is more, the outlandish design is set to remain vastly unchanged when the car enters production in 2020, if we are to believe Audi’s design boss, Marc Lichte.
I’m a fan of the E-Tron GT Concept, and I’m not a fan of too many new cars. That’s why I wrote in my previous pieces on the subject of this car that I hope it will remain intact - from a visual standpoint - when it hits showrooms in less than two year’s time. Now, we hear that Marc Lichte confirmed to the media at a roundtable organized during the L.A. Auto Show that most of the sheet metal we see on the concept will be carried over to the production car. You can imagine some alterations will be made, mostly in the name of safety, but that should be it.
2019 Audi RS7 Sportback
Audi first introduced the A7 in 2010 at the Paris Motor Sow as a sporty, yet practical iteration of the A6. U.S. models arrived for the 2012 model year, while the hot-to-trot RS7 was released in 2013 with more power, complimentary suspension and chassis upgrades, and sharper looks. Now, following the release of the second-gen A7 in October of 2017, Audi is cooking up a second generation for the RS7 as well, and it could get as much as 700 hybridized horsepower under the hood.
Updated 12/10/2018: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Audi RS7 Sportback in its production form during cold weather testing flaunting its big oval exhaust pipes.
2018 Audi e-Tron GT Concept
Audi is as committed as anybody to an EV future, and the unveiling of the e-Tron GT Concept at the 2018 L.A. Auto Show further illustrates the desire of the German automaker to have an EV for everyone. The e-Tron GT will be the car for those who love to go fast in a 4-door coupe body. Its stablemate, the Taycan, as well as Tesla’s Model S, are clear targets.
Recently, Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier criticized German automakers for making boring-looking electric cars. "I really wonder when you, Mr. Zetsche, or you, Mr. Diess, or Mr. Krüger of BMW will be able to build an electric car that is only half as sexy as one Tesla," he said in his sharp remark. As if trying to prove the government official wrong, Audi unexpectedly showed up in L.A. with the e-Tron GT concept that’s, well, stunning from every angle. And before you start yammering about how concept cars change down the path to production, Audi says this concept shows the almost production-ready model that will hit showrooms in 2020 for the 2021 model year.
Audi wants to have a fleet of 12 electric cars by 2025, and this will be its flagship. What it is, in short, is a shorter, more aggressive, A7. It will share the platform with Porsche’s Taycan, but the two manufacturers are coy to point out the similarities between the two models. Oh, and Robert Downey Jr. wasn’t a random VIP guest at the launch of the e-Tron GT, as the car will star in the upcoming Avengers 4 movie. If the car will look this good in production guise, then all the hype Audi’s building is worth it.
2019 Audi S6
The Audi A6 was redesigned in 2018 after six years on the market and now its time for other versions of the sedan to get their official launch. First on the list is the S6, which we began seeing on public roads as a camouflaged prototype in 2017. Come 2018 and the four-door moving closer to an official launch, and we already know a lot of details about it.
The sedan is still hidden under wraps, but as before, the S6 will sport the same styling cues as the A6, but it will feature a slightly more aggressive exterior and a more potent drivetrain. The upcoming S6 is more important than ever to Audi, as both BMW and Mercedes-Benz have solid offerings in this niche in the M550i xDrive and the AMG E53 Sedan, respectively. Will the new S6 have what it takes to give its competitors a run for its money? Let’s find out in the review below.
Updated 12/03/2018: Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Audi S6 out for the a new testing session, and unlike the previous times, the new prototype dropped some of its camouflage.

According to Audi, the E-Tron GT Can Charge for 20 Minutes and Go Almost 200 Miles.
Audi has aimed its guns squarely at the Tesla Model S with its close-to-production e-Tron GT concept that it just unveiled at the 2018 LA Auto Show. It’s a very striking four-door coupe with very bold flanks and a pleasant old school vintage coke bottle shape when viewed from the side. It can also take an 80-percent charge (about 200-miles worth of electricity) in no more than 20 minutes. Take that, Tesla.
The Audi RS7 Sportback was Spotted Again as It Nears its Date with the Production Line
The new Audi RS7 Sportback has been spotted yet again; this time much closer. The alter ego version of the A7 will have a lot of performance bits added to it. We’ve seen Audi turn its other models into S and RS versions and the results have been quite impressive. Not much is known about the RS7 Sportback, and most of what we do know is based largely on rumors and speculation.
2018 Audi Q8 by ABT
The Audi Q8, another one in a long line of coupe-bodied luxury SUVs, was launched this year and has now been given the ABT Sportsline treatment. The end result is subtle but, as a house tuner for Audi, ABT knew how to churn out every ounce of performance out of the Q8.
The Q8, which is categorized as a mid-size luxury coupe SUV, is an alternative to the Cayenne or the X7. It’s the first model designed by Audi’s new chief of design, Marc Lichte, and arrived with a choice of two V-6 engines: a 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged gas engine and a 3.0-liter diesel.
Now, ABT took it upon themselves to improve, aesthetically as well as mechanically, the Q8. What they’ve unveiled is a great example of the ’less is more’ ideology: the car doesn’t have a widebody or particularly flashy add-ons but makes a strong statement nonetheless. Having said that, ABT announced that a new aero kit for the Q8 is in the works.

Audi Should Start Delivering the E-Tron GT in 2020
Earlier this year, Audi announced its plan to build a four-door performance electric car. This was when the automaker teased the E-Tron GT. With the E-Tron revealed already, it looks like the GT version will be equally impressive. Although nothing concrete was provided back then, we now have a few details.
Watch Out Tesla Model S - The Audi E-tron GT Will be All About Power
The Audi E-tron GT is coming, and it will, by all accounts, be epic. Ever since Tesla made such glorious strides in the electric car fandom, the car world has been waiting for the rest of the big automakers to catch up. With the introduction of numerous expensive electric SUVs in the past couple of years, the car community as a whole gained the much needed electric car boost. But a true Tesla Model S competitor was still nowhere to be found. Until now. The Audi E-tron GT will be its competitor. And I am not the only one to say it. Siegfried Pint, Head of Development for Electric Drive at Audi, said that the new car is “steered towards performance.”
2018 Audi RS5 By ABT Sportsline
ABT Sportsline is dialing up its aftermarket upgrade for theAudi RS5 by offering an engine upgrade program that was previously exclusive only to the limited edition RS5-R package. The new power upgrade is part of a comprehensive tuning kit that also includes changes to the RS5’s aesthetics and suspension. The result is a high-performance coupé rocking carbon fiber bits with a new 2.9-liter bi-turbo V-6 engine that now produces 510 horsepower and an improved suspension that paves the way for optimized driving dynamics.
Watch this Insane Audi RS6 Hit 204 MPH From a Dig: Video
The Audi RS6 Avant is a 605-horsepower machine of epic proportions. Unfortunately, the RS6 Avant isn’t available in the U.S. That leaves us in a bit of an emotional pickle when we see videos like this. For the record, the Audi RS6 in this video isn’t your standard RS6. It’s been tuned to produce a staggering 1,012 horsepower, and as you might expect, it showed out in ways that only a 1,012 horsepower Audi RS6 can.
Audi Claims That The New E-Tron With All-Electric Quattro Will Offer Impressive Driving Drynamics
Audi’s first-ever all-electric SUV, the E-tron, will soon be launched on the market and the automaker is gradually revealing the capabilities of the silent beast. Audi promises to offer the E-tron with internal combustion-like impressive dynamics, but zero-emissions. Can it convince the customers?
2019 Audi E-tron Quattro
The E-tron Quattro is Audi’s first-ever all-electric SUV. It was previewed by a similar concept car back in 2015 and made its debut as a production model in 2018. Developed as a competitor for the Tesla Model X, the E-tron Quattro joins Audi’s existing range of hybrid models that also use an "e-tron" badge.
Smaller than the Q7 but notably bigger than the Q5, the E-tron created its very own niche in the Audi lineup. It’s not big enough to offer full-size capability, but it’s not too cramped either. At the same time, it’s the perfect compromise for urban driving, as it’s not as difficult to park as the company’s range-topping SUV. The big question is, does it have what it takes to give the Tesla Model X a run for its money? Audi has yet to unveil all essential information, which makes predictions difficult, but we still know enough to paint a fair picture. Find out more in the review below.
Updated 10/03/2018: We’ve added all the latest, straight from the 2018 Paris Motor Show!
The 2020 Audi E-Tron GT Will Charge Twice as Fast as the 2019 E-Tron Quattro
Audi is leaving no stone unturned to make the E-Tron siblings true all-rounders. The latest USP of the E-Tron GT is that it will be the first all-electric vehicle from the Audi stable to support 350-kW charging. This will enable the SUV to charge to 80-percent in less than 12 minutes! Yes, you read it right. This is twice as fast as the E-Tron Quattro.
2020 Audi E-Tron GT
Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.
Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.
