Audi

Audi was born in 1909 when August Horch translated his last name into Latin, which is Audi. The badge today symbolises the four companies that merged in 1932 to create the German automotive company. There are currently 15 models available in a number of variations with the A1, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8 and Q5 and all popular Audi Q7. The Audi R8 is the brand's halo car.

2015 Audi S1 Sportback: pricing and specifications

The 2015 Audi S1 Sportback quattro will launch in Australia this month with a starting price of $49,990. The diminutive new pocket rocket is powered by a highly strung 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 170kW and 370Nm, which is mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox - there's no auto, and Audi Australia says they've not heard of one in the works, either...

Audi TT Roadster revealed

The third-generation Audi TT Roadster has been revealed six months after its coupe sibling, and one week ahead of its world premiere in the metal at the 2014 Paris motor show.  Pitched as offering “purity in its most beautiful form”, the topless Audi TT is the second member of a range poised to include additional derivatives such as a four-door family version and potentially a Shooting Brake-style crossover wagon, a la the growing Mercedes-Benz CLA family...

An Autocar source that claims to have seen a series of sketches says the concept has “a highly technical look” that incorporates “a newly interpreted single-frame grille, laser headlights, precise detailing within its aluminium body structure and a newly defined shut line architecture”...

Audi SQ5 v BMW X4 30d v Porsche Macan S Diesel : Comparison review

We are just about getting used to the idea of sporty cars powered by diesel engines, but the Audi SQ5, BMW X4 30d and Porsche Macan S Diesel further test the scepticism of purists. Can a diesel-powered SUV be a genuine performance star? It’s fitting the SQ5 is here because it was Audi that started the modern era of diesel performance with its R10 and R15 TDI race cars that, with the exception of 2009, dominated Le Mans between 2006 and 2011 (before hybrids became trendy)...

Aside from a slew of electric warning stickers and filling caps on both rear quarter panels, the plug-in hybrid Q7 doesn't look too different to the conventionally powered version of the next Q7 that we spotted back in April...

‘Premium light’ is a term for more than just watered-down beer charged exorbitantly at the footy.

Lobbing from $77,000, and eventually extending to $100,000 when the Audi TT S is added to the range late next year, the new Audi TT will have to compete with everything from the BMW M235i coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG to the Porsche Cayman at its top end...

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was Australia’s favourite luxury car in 2013. Perhaps a more impressive fact, however, is that Stuttgart’s mid-sized model outsold every mainstream medium car except the Camry and Mazda 6. It’s fair, then, to call this a significant volume car – as is its decades-old arch enemy, the BMW 3 Series, which matched that last feat...
