Here’s a neat little recipe for a car. Take one part premium badge, one part economy car, make it not only a hybrid but a plug-in hybrid with 14 miles of all-electric range, move it with a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and make sure it tops out at almost $50,000, before tax credits. Never asked for that sandwich?…
Today Audi announced which of its models feature the same cheating device used by Volkswagen to pass international diesel emissions standards. Included is none other than the 2010 Green Car of the Year, the Audi A3 TDI.
I'm not going to lie: I'm pretty delighted that I (and my partner) won Audi's TDI Challenge, where nine Diesel A3s attempted to drive from Albuquerque to San Diego on a single tank of Diesel. Part of why I'm delighted is because winning means it's over, since it was a pretty miserable process. Here's how we did it.
Sure, Mr. Ballaban already regaled with you his written account of the all-new 2015 Audi A3 Sedan. Perhaps you'd like to take the car in by way of video now?

We have known for some time that Audi is planning to cut the roof off its brand new 2015 Audi A3, as they have done in the past. This morning we received what are purportedly leaked press photos of the new A3 Cabriolet. Is it the real deal? We're not sure.
I think this has happened to everyone at least once: You get into a new car, and you don't know what some crazy-looking switch, dial or button actually does. But Audi has a brilliant solution to this problem that involves your smartphone, augmented reality, and ditching the owner's manual for good.
For various reasons, the automotive powers that be keep many of the world's best cars from the American car buying public. Even Detroit is stiffing us on some of these models, and they're supposed to be on our side!
This is the new Audi A3, leaked on the same day as its northern competition, the 2013 Volvo V40. Get a look at its clean lines and orange interior before all your pre-med buddies see them in the dealership.
Audi has explored the possibility of adding a four-door sedan body style to the A3 range since time immemorial. Or at least for the past year or two. Yesterday the German automaker all about "aluminum und shteel" basically officially confirmed it, releasing the first official sketches of this A3 Concept ahead of its…
Manhattanite Peter Helfer found his Audi covered in ice from a broken water main. His car was on newspaper covers, on morning news shows, and all over the internet. Here's how it happened, in his own words. — Ed.
We first showed you the bizarrely frozen Audi A3 in New York City earlier this week. Now there's video of the owner and others trying to wrap their minds around what happens when a water main breaks in winter.
Audi's U.S. arm told us last night they want to bring the next-generation A1 stateside, as well as a sedan version of the wagon-only A3. Why next-gen? So U.S. crash standards can be baked in, along with alternative power sources.
Jonathan Bohren and his father drove from California to New York with a camera hitched to the back seat, taking a photo of the view through the windshield every 30 seconds. Here's 3,054 miles compressed to four minutes.
