It's an even better baby Q7.

The new Q5 might be the Q7's Mini Me, but it looks even better.

We might have a glimpse at Audi's product onslaught through 2018.

Last year, we reported that Audi was exploring other engines for the R8. This report may confirm the V6 is coming, along with other interesting tidbits.

S4 Avant? What S4 Avant?

It may be obvious at this point, but here in the United States, European manufacturers routinely give us the short end of the stick. Now, I'm not talking about models or brands that don't come here, like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class or the entire Renault line. No, instead, I'm referring to cars that are sold right here in the Land of the Free in one bodystyle, while Europe enjoys the same vehicle with a wider variety of configurations.

Efficiency Never Felt So Good

I've struggled with diesel technology. It's not that I have a problem with it or dislike it, but rather that I don't particularly understand what stops its wider-spread adoption. Sure, memories of rust-prone, smoky, sluggish and uneconomical Oldsmobile diesels aren't exactly easy to erase from the collective memory of the North American motoring public, but I'd think that a few years into the latest crop of clean diesels, there'd be wider adoption – or at least consumer consideration &ndas

No Diesel? No Problem

With the exception of a handful of markets (including the US), the Audi SQ5 was a pioneer for the company's S/RS performance line as it was the first model to wear the badge and also get diesel power. Our general "everything is better with a diesel" mentality was put to the test when we first heard we would be getting a non-diesel SQ5 in the US (despite the availability of the diesel-powered Q5 TDI here already), but as usual we can only blame our federal emissions standards. As Audi tells it, t

"Nice ons." "Fuel cut." "Surf drafting." There are certain phrases that, when you hear them, you know you've not at your average automotive event. In fact, the drive we're setting out on today is something that has never been done before: taking three 2014 Audi TDI vehicles – a Q5, an A7 and an A6 – from Los Angeles to New York in 48 hours while attempting to beat the vehicles' official EPA fuel economy numbers. It's going to be an interesting combination of careful green driving and

Despite the fact that the 2014 Audi SQ5 you see here is quite a bit different than the one offered in Europe, we're still plenty glad that the folks from Ingolstadt have decided to offer a hotted-up version of its compact Q5 crossover here in the States. Now, Audi has announced that its US-spec SQ5 will be priced from $51,900 when it hits dealerships later this summer (*not including $895 for destination). That strikes us as a pretty favorable price – while the base Q5 in 2.0-liter TFSI tr
