Audi RS4 v Porsche 911 GTS drag race - video

Central to the appeal of the Audi RS4 Avant is the fact it offers sports car performance with a usable, practical boot. Just how much of sports car is it compared to, say, a Porsche 911 GTS though? The team at CarWow endeavoured to find out. With twin-turbo, six-cylinder engines (and Volkswagen Group backing) the RS4 and 911 have a little bit in common. They also both make 331kW of power, although the Audi channels it to all four wheels. Which is quicker? We won't spoil the result.

Audi Australia's busy launch calendar detailed

Audi Australia is set to roll out seven important new offerings in the next year or so, as it seeks to bounce back from a few years of declining sales. Between now and the third quarter of 2019 it’ll launch two new SUVs — one a new generation and another just plain new — a new-generation range-opening city car, two new-generation large passenger cars and its first full electric vehicle, the e-tron quattro crossover.

Mercedes-Benz recalls several models for faulty airbags

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for numerous model lines over concerns the airbags could release metal parts in the event of deployment – though the company says it's unrelated to the ongoing Takata recall campaign. The marque reports 78 units across the A-Class, B-Class, C-Class, E-Class, GLA, GLC and AMG GT ranges could be affected by the issue, which could see the airbag gas generator housing eject metal parts if the inflator is deployed.

2019 Audi RS5 Sportback pricing and specs

The Audi Sport range in Australia is expanding from February next year, with the addition of a new RS5 Sportback derivative. This longer-wheelbase model joins its coupe sibling atop the A5 range, adding an extra pair of doors and a wagon-esque boot. In some ways it’s a slicker but almost-as-practical take on the RS4 Avant, right? Apparently designers drew inspiration from the racing details of the bonkers '70s era Audi 90 quattro IMSA GTO.
