The Audi SQ5: Aluminum Und Gasoline For America

Audi has made a new toy for the Detroit Auto Show. When we first saw the SQ5 we noted it was the first S model with a diesel engine, which means we'd probably never get it.

Show Us The American Cars That Even Europeans Love

With gas prices at $7,50 a gallon, it doesn't make too much sense to have an American car in Europe. I guess that's why Detroit tries to sneak into the old continent with Chryslers rebadged as Lancias these days. » 12/17/12 3:00pm 12/17/12 3:00pm
