What Was The Audi RS3 Thinking Before Challenging The Tesla Model 3 To A Drag Race?
The Audi RS3 was recently updated and it is a fantastic proposition overall. Audi even gave it a little more torque this time around. But, it is still not in the leagues of EVs when it comes to straight-line races. The folks at Carwow pit the Audi RS3 against a Tesla Model 3 that was nothing more than a glorified squash. The Model 3 is in a league of its own, and in this race, it proved the same by obliterating the RS3.
Check Out This New Audi Q5 E-Tron Prototype
The Audi Q6 E-Tron will probably be revealed in 2022, so when these spy shots landed in my inbox this morning, I thought for sure that’s what I was looking at. However, sources are new telling us that this is a Chinese-market special, and it should even be a seven-seater.
Crazy Race: Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TTRS vs Golf R
It’s always interesting to see how different engine layouts compare to one another. It’s even more interesting when a high-performance SUV goes up against some of the best compact sports cars and a capable hot hatchback. This is exactly the case with this drag race from Carwow, where a Lamborghini Urus is being challenged by a Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi TT RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R.
Watch The Tesla Model S Take On The German Trio Of The Audi e-Tron GT, The Mercedes EQS, and The Porsche Taycan
The folks at Carwow brought in four of the best EVs that money can buy you today. The contenders include an Audi e-Tron GT, a Mercedes EQS, a Porsche Taycan 4S, and a Tesla Model S. The Model S is the veteran of the lot, but can it defeat its fairly new rivals on the drag strip?
Audi 100 Coupe S/GT - Is This The Muscle Car That Audi Never Gave Us?
A 1972 Audi 100 Coupé S/GT, rebuilt by Niklas Frisk from Sweden, has now been restored to its former glory as a sporty vehicle for everyone to appreciate. He meticulously recreated the Audi Coupé that we see here, making a few subtle changes that have dramatically altered the looks of the car. For instance, several metal body pieces are from Volkswagen, with some parts also sourced from a motorcycle. It took 5,000 hours of relentless effort to painstakingly recreate this masterpiece.
American EV vs. German Grunt: Can The Tesla Model X Take Down the Audi RS6?
2021 Audi SQ5 TDI
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 Q4 Sportback E-Tron Concept
Audi is arguably the most active brand today when it comes to EVs. The company had announced a bold claim that it will launch 20 new EVs by 2025, and surprisingly, it seems to be on track.
The German automaker has added yet another vehicle to its EV portfolio, the Q4 Sportback e-tron, which happens to be its seventh fully electric vehicle. The company revealed the concept version for now and the real deal is expected to go on sale sometime in 2021.
2019 Audi A6 Allroad
The 2020 Audi A6 Allroad has arrived, and with it, the hopes and dreams of those who have been waiting to sit inside this high-riding crossover are now within reach. The new A6 Allroad is part of the fifth-generation Audi A6 (C8) that Audi launched in 2018. That distinction earns the A6 Allroad its own laundry list of updates, not the least of which includes a new look, new features, and new tech options. Then there’s the hope of a U.S. return, something the A6 Allroad hasn’t had the opportunity to do in a long time. Audi hasn’t made a final decision yet, but there are discussions on whether the A6 Allroad has the chops to return and thrive in America. More details on that end should arrive closer to the model’s actual market launch sometime next month. The 2020 Audi A6 Allroad is here. Here’s to hoping we see more of it in the future beyond these press photos.
It just recently debuted but nobody can seem to get enough of it. Maybe it’s that four-door coupe look, or maybe it’s the fact that it has five doors. Maybe it’s that it sits lower and is wider than the RS5 Coupe. It could be that 2.9-liter with 444 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Even if you plan on getting one, you’ve still got a while to wait, so why not plaster it all over your desktop with one of our high-resolution wallpapers?
By the Numbers: 2018 Audi A6 vs 2019 Audi A6
While it’s difficult not to get excited by new-generation cars, I’m far from enthusiastic when Audi launches something new. I understand the philosophy behind the "same sausage, different length," but this design approach doesn’t do it for me. What’s more, I think that Audi’s current styling language is bland and boring. But that’s not to say that the new generations do not bring significant improvements. The new A6, for instance, while still highly recognizable, it stands out inside and out thanks to numerous upgrades. It also boasts different figures when it comes to specs, dimensions, and performance. And we are going to discuss these changes in the comparison below.
Not surprisingly, the latest A6 is a tad bigger than its predecessor. It also offers a bit more room inside the cabin. The changes are far from impressive and barely hit an inch inside and out, but it proves that Audi is slowly but surely making its vehicles bigger. The new engines are also a bit more powerful, this time around by a more significant margin. Let’s find out more about that below.

Visual Comparison: 2018 Audi A6 vs 2019 Audi A6
The mid-2000s brought a new generation of Audi vehicles that took the company to new heights. Although the entire lineup shared the same design language that wasn’t exactly exciting, the simple and elegant looks, the solid tech packages, and the good performance brought more and more people into Audi dealerships. The Germans began revamping the lineup in 2015 with the Q7 SUV and, by late 2017, we saw a host of updated models on the road, including the A4, R8, and A8. Come 2018 and Audi has launched the new A6, Ingolstadt’s main weapon against the brand-new BMW 5 Series and recently launched (and innovative) Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As expected, design changes are far from radical, which is why we’re taking a closer look at both generations in the comparison below.
The A6 remains familiar with the lineup, but it’s also very similar to its predecessor. The sharper lines don’t alter the exterior beyond recognition, but it gives the sedan a modern twist. The revised four-door comes in a bit more aggressive too thanks to larger vents in the bumpers and a bigger front grille. The interior is indeed quite different, as Audi ditched every single element that made the A6 look modern in 2010, but long in the tooth in 2018. Let’s take a closer look at the changes.

Updated: Audi Spills the Beans on the New A6, Just Hours After Images Leak
Audi is preparing to debut the new A6 at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show but, as is often the case with models as high-profile as the A6, leaked photos tend to ruin the surprise. Fortunately, there aren’t that many surprises to hold on to because the leaked photos of the new Audi A6 reveal, well, the new Audi A6. We’re saying “new,” by the way, strictly on a technical basis because, judging by the photos, there’s nothing overly exciting about what we see here.
Updated 02/28/2018 @ 04:00 - Audi dropped full details of the new A6 prior to its Geneva Debut. Check out the quick details below.
2019 Volvo V60 Vs. 2018 Audi A4 Allroad – A Visual Comparison
It doesn’t get much more “Volvo” than that old standby body style we all know and love. I’m of course talking about the station wagon, a favorite for both families and modern automotive journalists. The Swedish brand is certainly well-versed in this space, as is evident by the release of its latest wagon, the new mid-size V60. Officially breaking cover at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, stateside buyers will be happy to know that this gorgeous piece of extended roof goodness is indeed arriving on these shores to meet all your grocery-getting needs. But how does it compare against the competition? To find out,we lined it up against another luxury wagon, namely the Audi A4 Allroad, and gave ’em both a thorough visual shakedown, diving into the aesthetics, the equipment, and what’s going on under the hood.

Ditch The SUV And Try One Of These Wagons Instead
In case you haven’t noticed, American consumers are still enamored with the idea of driving around in a tall-bodied, relatively off-road capable SUV with loads of space to haul around many people and lots of things. Sales of such vehicles continue to rise, and automakers are responding by churning out new models by the truckload. But is there a better means to achieve similar ends? What if, for example, you want something with the capability, cargo space, and attitude of an SUV, but the maneuverability, ease of use, and comfort of a regular passenger car? Luckily, such a combo does exist, and we’ve got five of the best examples on the market lined up right here in this in-depth comparison article.
The five vehicles in question are (in alphabetical order) the Audi A4 Allroad, the Mini Clubman All4, the Subaru Outback, the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, and the Volvo V60 Cross Country. That’s right folks – wagons, representing a diverse price range and wide array of tastes. Once the torchbearer of utility and practicality, the wagon body style has declined in popularity with the rise of the SUV. But just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it’s good, right? Read on to find out what makes these five vehicles fantastic alternatives to the SUV status quo. You rebel, you.

The Audi A4 has been one of those “love it” or “hate it” models for some time, thanks to its conservative body style and rather mundane updates over the years. For 2016, Audi brought the fifth-generation A4 into showrooms, and as expected, it’s more of a facelift than the evolution we hoped for. Highlights of the new-gen model include a more defined grille with sharper points, larger and more aggressive corner air intakes, new layout for the headlight and taillight lenses, and is slightly larger over its predecessor. Inside, the car took on more gracious changes that include a cleaner dash and center stack, standard LED lighting, lightweight seats, a new MMI infotainment system with 4G LTE connectivity, and Audi’s virtual cockpit sitting behind the steering wheel. In the drivetrain department, the A4 got a range of updated engines that range in output from 148 to 268 horsepower.
While Audi went with its traditional ways and did little to the exterior, it did come correct for a new-gen model on the inside. Plus, the car has a rather large range of engines, depending on the market, that will suit just about anyone’s need. Plus, since the A4 is a bit larger than before, which translates into more passenger room and cargo space. Of course, for those who fall into the “love it” category the minor changes outside will be clearly overshadowed by the long list of improvements inside. With that said, check out the full review below to learn about everything Audi brought to the A4 for the 2016 model year.
Updated 01/07/2016: Audi announced that the all-new A4 will be making its North American debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and will be put on sale in the spring of 2016 at a starting price of $37,300.

There are a lot of cool cars we can’t have in the United States, including a host of incredibly fast yet still practical wagons. The Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Shooting Brake is the first that pops into mind, but the RS6 Avant is the vehicle that adds even more insult to injury. While Europe gets no less than four Audi-badged wagons, U.S. customers have just the one in the form of the A6 Allroad. And while most of us can live without the A4 Avant and the A3 Sportback, not having the RS6 Avant on this side of the pond is pure blasphemy. While I could rant about this for hours, I’m going to take a break to tell you about the latest Exclusive package Audi rolled out for the RS6 Avant.
The bundle comes just in time for the wagon’s recently launched facelift and adds further aggressiveness to the already beefed-up grocery getter. Nothing massive, but just enough to turn the RS6 Avant from enticing to downright sinister.
