2018 Audi A5 and S5 First Drive – Gran Tourismo inspired coupe

2018 Audi A5 and S5 First Drive – Gran Tourismo inspired coupe

As decisions go, opting for the newly redesigned 2018 Audi A5 or its hotter S5 sibling is a good problem to have. This past week, I had the opportunity to experience both vehicles in Portugal and walked away impressed with the refined styling, performance, and handling. Much of the improvement can be credited to the same MLB Evo architecture first introduced in the 2017 Audi A4, not least a weight reduction of up to roughly 100 pounds for the US car, not to mention a drag coefficient cut to 0.25 for the base A5 model. Still, the second-gen A5 and S5 don’t go lacking in Audi’s typically meticulous evolutionary changes.

Audi is teaching its self-driving car human manners

Audi is teaching its autonomous cars some thoroughly human road-manners, acknowledging that safe self-driving is about more than just sticking to the Vehicle Code.

2017 Audi A4 Review

2017 Audi A4 Review

Classic design ages gracefully, but the 2017 Audi A4 hides its technological prowess under a body that's evolutionary rather than revolutionary. The latest version of the German company's compact executive sedan may look a whole lot like the outgoing model, but to my mind that's the beauty of it: unlike some rivals, change hasn't been made for its own sake.

2016 Audi A3 2.0 TFSI quattro Review

2016 Audi A3 2.0 TFSI quattro Review

Judge a luxury car company not by its flagship but by its compromises: namely, the sacrifices it makes to put its badge - in this case the four Audi rings - on the nose of its smaller, cheaper models. The 2016 Audi A3 2.0T quattro is a case in point, the most affordable way to get the coveted badge on your driveway, but losing some of the bells and whistles along the way. Question is, do those sacrifices outweigh the benefits?

Audi A6, A7 get a fresh new look, inside and out

Audi A6, A7 get a fresh new look, inside and out

Why change a winning formula? That is perhaps the reasoning behind Audi's decision to keep its Audi A6 and Audi A7 sedans mostly intact. Mostly. Acknowledging that it still needs to be attractive to buyers tempted to look at competitors' shiny new offerings, Audi has given the A6 and A7 a slightly makeover, both externally and internally, that, especially for the A6 and A6 Avant, give the cars a bolder, sharper visage. Best of all, Audi has kept the best things about the A6 and A7, including the same starting price.

Volkswagen will buy back most Dieselgate cars in US

Volkswagen will offer to buy back every diesel car in the US that cheated emissions standards, a vast and expensive undertaking covering nearly half a million vehicles. The decision is part of a settlement in principle with the US Department of Justice (DoJ), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and California Air Resources Board (CARB), announced today, as part of the German automaker's grand "Dieselgate" mea-culpa for fitting several of its models with cunning bypass devices that helped fake the results during government testing.

Audi might have a mid-engined, Prosche Boxster-based R6

It isn't just smartphone manufacturers who are putting out mid-range products to fill in gaps in their portfolio. Now Audi is rumored to do the same with a yet to be confirmed Audi R6. This mid-engined vehicle, said to come in both coupe and convertible models, will be sitting comfortably between the smaller, two-door Audi TT and the monster that is the Audi R8. Curiously, the Audi R8 is said to use a platform that is similar, though modified, to the one in the Porsche Boxster and Cayman.
