The 2017 Audi A4 is thoroughly updated from the previous-generation A4, even if it doesn’t look like much has changed. There is, however, one bright and shining ray of hope for all involved: this fall its all-wheel drive Quattro version will go on sale with a manual gearbox. You should buy it that way.
I have a soft spot for the Audi TT RS. And by “soft spot,” I mean I’ve had some of the best race results of my career in the last-generation motorsports version of the car, including nailing the front-wheel drive Pikes Peak record earlier this year. But the racing version of the TT RS had about as much to do with the…
There were two things No. 8 Audi R18 driver Oliver Jarvis wasn’t quite fond of in Mexico: the tequila, and the contact-prone nature of the Extreme Speed Motorsports LMP2 cars. We picked the brains of Jarvis and racing legend Allan McNish on who to watch during the 6 Hours of Circuit of the Americas, and here’s what…
If you want a weird German sedan with worse rear headroom and trunk space, you’ve got plenty of options from BMW and Mercedes. But if you wanted an Audi, you were limited to the big, expensive A7 family. Audi is now fixing that, with the A5 and S5 Sportback.
As part of the unprecedented $14.7 billion settlement released earlier today, Volkswagen will offer substantial cash payments to owners of the 482,000 diesel four-cylinder cars affected by the emissions cheating scandal. If you own one of Volkswagen’s NOx-spewing machines, here are step-by-step instructions on how you…
Audi’s five-cylinder engine turns 40 today. Created to mitigate the packaging and weight distribution downsides of an inline-six cylinder engine, with the advent of turbocharging and permanent all-wheel drive the motor went on to be a legend.
In what’s being called an industry first, Audi has launched a feature that will allow its cars to communicate with traffic signals, notifying drivers when lights are about to change. In addition to maybe being useful for dusting AMGs at stoplights, it’s an important advancement in connected cars.
If you’ve ever thought complaints to a major authority wouldn’t be heard, you may just be wrong. But in this case, that isn’t a good thing—a viewer who reportedly wasn’t fond of an Audi R8 ad “promoting irresponsible driving” got it banned from the internet, and the ad shows barely any driving at all.
When you hit a bump, your shock absorbers damp the wheel’s motion by converting its kinetic energy into heat via the shearing of fluid in the shocks. That heat gets expelled into the air and is never seen again. But Audi is tired of wasting energy, so the automaker plans to harness it from the suspension motion and…
Audi CEO Rupert Stadler and about 30 other Audi managers decided to get lit on the company’s dime. Except when the Dieselgate-hobbled Volkswagen Group caught wind of the outrageous bill, they told Stadler and other organizers to pony up, Germany’s Bild Am Sonntag reports.
This is probably not Audi’s next Tesla rival. But it looks so good that it simply must be shared with you, the reader, so that you may join me in wishing it into reality.
The 2017 Audi Allroad is the lifted faux-SUV wagon version of the all-new A4. You know this and still wish they offered the wonderful, normal Avant wagon like they do in Europe. Now with a starting price of just under $44,950 it seems Audi would prefer for you to buy something else other than the Allroad.
This is the story of why one of the most dominant race cars of the modern era, the IMSA GTO Audi 90 Quattro, had a little doll that mooned other racers.
The mid-engined 1991 Audi Quattro Spyder Concept didn’t turn into anything, but it sure looked good. It’s like an R8 but 15 years early.
There’s nothing like the sense of speed you get from a roof-mounted camera. Because it’s dumb and bad to try car surfing on a race car, we’ve got video from on top of an Audi R8 LMS flying down Road America that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Turn up the volume, and let’s enjoy a good V10 howl.
One of Volkswagen’s lawyers said at a court hearing today that the automaker thinks it has a fix for 85,000 3.0-liter diesel V6 VWs, Audis and Porsches that don’t meet emissions requirements, Reuters reports. The four-cylinder engines are another story.
After an unprecedented $14.7 billion settlement released yesterday, we learned that Volkswagen will offer to buy back nearly 500,000 four-cylinder diesel cars affected by the emissions cheating scandal in the U.S. But what is the fate of the cars once they’ve been bought back? Are they all doomed?
