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…

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…

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…

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…

The Arrival “Is this little red car for you?” asks the shuttle bus driver for the long-term parking at Austin-Bergstrom airport. It was. Audi was kind enough to leave me the keys to a 2017 R8 V10 plus for the week. I opened the front luggage compartment and crossed my fingers that my suitcase would […] More…

As part of our long-term test of the Audi A4, we wanted to challenge it against the class leaders, and the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class dominate the small luxury segment. To see whether the A4 deserves your consideration, we brought out the Mercedes C-Class in C300 4Matic trim, perfectly matching our A4 2.0T Quattro […] More…

With this generation, the Audi A4 might just be going through an existential crisis. A conservatively designed sedan with a luxurious interior and a premium badge on the nose is a luxury car right? Then why is it that every time I get in and drive, there is something about it that just makes me […] More…

The new Audi A4 is one of the most praised vehicles on the road. From generally positive reviews, to reviewers calling it the best car Audi’s ever made, it’s fair to say that it’s been a critical darling. And, honestly, I’m not sure why. You probably shouldn’t listen to those reviews, because it isn’t the […] More…

If you’re anything like me, you’re not sitting on a couple hundred grand in your savings account looking for an impractical toy on which to spend it, but sometimes, we need to break away from our crossover comparisons and compact car reviews and indulge in a pair of the hottest new players in the almost-supercar […] More…

Audi has kindly dropped off a new 2016 Audi TT , and we’re headed out for a “driftless” weekend. Driftless does not mean we’ve had to foreswear recklessly hanging out the tail of our TT as a condition of use. Rather, it’s our destination—the so-called Driftless Area of Wisconsin, a lush delta in the south central […] More…

Michelin Brings Racing Engineering and Experience to the Road One of my biggest passions in life is Motorsports. I love watching car racing both in person and on TV, especially when any Audi Sport teams are racing. For myself, one of the most interesting aspects of racing is the strategy. The team’s approach is often […] More…
