(Almost) 2000 kilometres in the 2019 Audi Q8

While the CarAdvice office shuts down (mostly) over the Christmas break, those few weeks are a great opportunity to thoroughly road test cars. With a longer loan period and the inevitable road trips planned, you start to really live with a car and pile on kays in all types of conditions. I count myself pretty lucky in that I’ve been able add almost 2000 kilometres to the odometer of a 2019 Audi Q8...

2019 Audi Q4 spied

A new coupe-styled Audi crossover, likely to be badged Q4 or Q3 Sportback, has been snapped testing in the snow. In keeping with the theme laid out by the Q8, the Q4 (or Q3 Sportback, if Audi and Alfa Romeo can't settle their name-based differences) will be a sportier-looking, sloping-roofed version of the Q3 SUV...

Dieselgate: Four Audi managers indicted

A US federal grand jury last week indicted four senior managers — Richard Bauder, Axel Eiser, Stefan Knirsch and Carsten Nagel — for their role in developing and covering up the emissions testing defeat device fitted to the Audi-designed 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 engine. All four held senior management positions at Audi's diesel design centres in Neckarsulm and Ingolstadt, Germany...

2018 Audi A4 2.0 TFSI Black Edition review

Black is the new, um, black, in the automotive world. And now Audi has joined the party with the A4 Black Edition. But does the addition of some styling elements and a beefier suspension come with a commensurate lift in performance?

Combined sales of Mercedes-Benz cars and SUVs were 2,310,185 units last calendar year, up 0.6 per cent on 2017. This doesn't include vans, which are sold by a distinct organisation.

Fiat Chrysler to settle US diesel emissions cases for $1.1 billion

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will pay out roughly US$800 million ($1.1 billion) in fines, fixes and compensation to settle claims some of its diesel engines cheated their way past emissions regulations. The company had been accused of using an emissions-testing defeat device, like the one used employed by the Volkswagen Group in its Dieselgate engines, which could detect when a car was undergoing bench-testing and alter its operation to emit a legal quantity of pollutants...

2018 Audi A3 recalled

Audi Australia has recalled 55 examples of the 2018 '8V' A3 over concerns the mounting for the rear head restraints may not be correctly welded to the rear seat backrest.

The CarAdvice Winners Circle 2018, Mike Stevens: Audi RS4 Avant

I don't understand why people aren't buying more wagons. Alright, I do understand it. It's my job, after all, to know how the market works and what draws people to the latest trends. What I mean, is: if you've bought a passenger car and it isn't a wagon, you've made the wrong choice. ("Flame suit on", "Come at me bro", "Don't @ me", et cetera...

CarAdvice Winners Circle: Audi RS4 Avant

The Audi RS4 Avant is a family hauler that truly hauls arse, in a straight line and through corners alike, and it does it in all conditions. No other luxury wagon outside the Audi stable can claim that in quite so angry a fashion. While I do dig the C63 Estate, I reckon it just isn't quite the headturner that this baddie clearly is...
