When Audi first launched the SQ5 in the US in 2015, I had to have one. Big brakes, supercharged V6, sport seats, great exhaust note and plenty of cargo room. What’s not to love? When I had purchased my 2010 S4, I wanted an S4 Avant. A few years later the SQ5 was about as […] More…

Euro fans from all over made the pilgrimage to the great white north (more like great gray north, this particular weekend) to take in the revelry and excess of Eurokracy. Set just outside Montreal, at the iCar circuit, the show was an exhibit, a track day, a place for silliness, and more all rolled into one. […] More…

Every year, Golf GTI fans gather on the banks of a turquoise lake high in the Austrian alps to celebrate their favorite car and their favorite car maker. Naturally, the show attracts just about anyone who’s into VW and VAG products, so the selection of Audis at the show is both large and impressive. Below […] More…

2017 Audi A4 vs 2017 BMW 330i 004 JY 600x300 photo

Ever since we picked up the Audi A4 for our long-term test, this is the comparison I’ve been itching to do. While the Mercedes C-Class claimed the sales crown last year, the BMW 3 Series is a perennial bestseller and the undisputed benchmark in the compact luxury segment. It’s the obvious choice to see how far […] More…

The Audi RS3 LMS will be racing in America for the first time ever this weekend at the Virginia International Raceway. The Pirelli World Challenge race will be the race-prepped RS3’s first chance to show off its mettle against other cars in the Touring Car (TC) class, but it won’t be its first time around […] More…

For all its Group B excellence and the revolution that was Quattro AWD, Audi never managed to win Africa’s Safari Rally during rallying’s wildest years. It wouldn’t be until 1987, with a 200 Quattro driven by flying Finn, Hannu Mikkola, that Audi would finally win the African event. The race, held in Kenya in 1987, […] More…

After winning its first comparison against the Mercedes-Benz C300, we took the Audi A4 out for a bit of a road trip, where we played around with the Audi Virtual Cockpit and MMI infotainment system. The short road trip was also a chance to finally stretch the A4’s legs and see what kind of mileage numbers […] More…

During a recent trip to Japan, the folks at Work Wheels invited me to visit their headquarters in Osaka, and as a self-confessed wheel whore, of course I had to accept. It got even better when local friend, and owner of H-Sport in Kyoto, Hideki Fukui offered to drive me there from Kyoto in his […] More…

For Audi enthusiasts, there’s no car more iconic than the S4. First seen in 1992 as the UR-S4 and later as the iconic B-segment car in 1999, the B5 Audi S4 launched with a twin-turbo V6 as a response to the M3. To make it Audi engineers stuffed a 2.7-liter V6, 6-speed manual transmission, sport […] More…

What Do an Audi RS 3 and a Pontiac Grand Prix Have in Common?

2018 Audi RS 3 Review rear low 3q 600x300 photo

The Audi RS 3 is surprisingly engaging and fun to drive, something that you can’t say about a lot of other Audis. Audi’s RS models are very fast and feature an advanced all-wheel drive system, so they feel very sure-footed, which is great for driver confidence and bad weather, but perhaps not the best for getting giggles […] More…

2018 Audi RS 3 Review Hero 600x300 photo

This bright green Audi RS 3 sedan I’m piloting is a very fast small car that makes awesome, playful noises. But unlike Audi sport models of old, this one can slide through corners up and down the Dhofar mountains of Oman. If you think too hard about all that, it may boggle the mind. Who […] More…

It takes a certain kind of person to want a convertible. Unapologetic, extrovert, Thelma and Louise types hell bent on getting noticed and having adventures that will make killer stories later. Ripping through the Spanish countryside driving the all-new 2018 Audi A5 and S5 Cabriolets, people are trying to sneak photos of our convertibles, cheering […] More…
