Audi

The Audi name was born in 1909, when August Horch translated his surname into Latin. Today, the badge recognises the four companies that merged to create the brand as we know it. At the moment, there are 14 models in its lineup, ranging from the A1 city hatchback to the V10-powered R8.

Video: Audi A6 v Genesis G80 v Mercedes-Benz E-Class - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Large Luxury Car

They once ruled the driveways and roads of Australia’s wealthiest postcodes, a four-wheeled sign you had made it in life. Large sedans wearing badges, predominantly from Germany, sometimes England, oozed prestige, with big powerful engines matched only by large, comfortable interiors...

Video: Audi RSQ8 v BMW X5 M v Porsche Macan GTS - Drive Car of the Year 2021 Best Performance SUV

While the laws of physics dictate heavy and tall sporty SUVs will never imitate a true sports car, several manufacturers have proven that driving enjoyment can indeed be derived from this vehicle type. BMW was one of the first with its 2009 X5 M – and the third-generation version is among our finalists here...

Old v New: 2020 Audi R8 V10 RWD v 2008 Audi R8 V8 manual

I’m still genuinely amazed every time I lay eyes on a first-generation Audi R8.  Its design really came to fruition in 2003 with the Audi Le Mans quattro concept. The production car, which followed three years later in 2006, didn’t deviate much from the original brief at all. Consider that the first-generation car was conceptualised at the turn of the century, then...

2022 Audi RS3 to feature drift mode, despite earlier claim it’s "a waste of time"

The all-new 2022 Audi RS3 performance hatchback and sedan will feature an electronic “drift mode" in a range-wide first for the Volkswagen subsidiary. When engaged, the setting – known as 'torque rear' mode – is capable of sending "up to" 1750Nm to either the left or right rear wheel (whichever is under primary load during a corner) through the engagement of two independent axle-mounted clutches (shown below)...

2011 Audi Q7 4.2 TDI Quattro review

I thought I should review my wife’s car. Back in 2011 we had our own mini-1970’s oil crisis, pulling a 3.5-tonne horse float with a Toyota LandCruiser featuring the 4.7-litre petrol V8. We could barely get from one petrol station to the next. Jenni had been resisting buying a diesel for the usual feminine reasons, filthy diesel nozzles, hoses, bowsers, sharing space with trucks, but much of that seems to have improved...

2009 Audi A4 3.0 TDI Quattro review

From a young age, like all young boys, I took a keen interest in all things that moved, especially trains. I didn’t have a particularly strong passion for cars until 2012 when my father borrowed my grandfather’s 2001 Audi A6 4.2 FSI Quattro to drive while he looked for a new car...

2019 Audi Q5 50 TDI Quattro Sport review

This is my first experience of an Audi and it was third in line behind Mercedes and BMW sixes. The Mercedes was a disappointment to drive, and this Audi represented far better bang for bucks than BMW. Having owned a Volvo already, another one of these would have been first choice, but I wanted a six-cylinder and they do not exist under the Volvo brand...

2013 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Quattro review

This is my third A4. My first experience with a German car was an A4 B5 2.4-litre V6 quattro with a 5-speed manual. The second was the A4 B6 1.8-litre S-line quattro with a 6-speed manual. After 10 years of ownership and 220,000 kilometres, repairs and servicing were starting to cost more than the car was worth, so it was sold...
