Driven: 2015 Audi TT 2.0 TDI ultra S line

You can thank the regulation divide between America and the EU for reasons cars like the one you see here would never make the cut in the U.S. market. Whether it is protectionist, politics or simply ego, America and Europe can’t really seem to get aligned on rules and regulations that apply to car production and certification. As a result, quirky cars like a diesel-powered TT coupé with manual transmission simply remain too niche and too obscure to be worth federalizing. More…

Driven: 2016 Audi S6 Sedan (Europe)

When it comes to performance Audis, we consider the S6 and its lineage to remain the brand’s “true north”. Over the years, things like consumer tastes change. Badges move to new nomenclature, supercars get launched and are subsequentally driven by super heroes, Avants become passé to some, while 4-door coupés prove lower slung and more sultry. Even through all of this, the S6 sedan remains, steadfast in its mission of bringing supercar challenging pace to the ever present form of a four door executive sedan. It is the model by which audi can measure its direction as readily as that little engraved “N” on your compass will help you find your way in a dense forest. More…

Driven – 2016 Audi A6 2.0 TFSI S line (EU)

This week, Audi is pulling the wraps off of its updated A6 and A7 range at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While these cars may appear to be benefitting solely from a mild cosmetic mid-lifecycle freshening, we recently went to Germany in order to take a look. What we learned there, and while driving this Audi A6 2.0 TFSI, is that the updates are more than just skin deep. More…

First Drive: 2015 Audi TT Coupé 2.0 TFSI quattro S line

As style icons go, the air around cars like the Volkswagen Beetle and Porsche 911 is a heady space… space also occupied by cars like the Audi TT. These automobiles are clearly defined and ardently loved. Redesign them in a less than authentic way and risk watering down something that truly defines a car company. This is what Audi considered as it moved to envision the latest Audi TT coupe. More…

Driven: 2015 Audi A3 2.0 TFSI quattro Sedan (USA)

When the idea of the A3 sedan was first hatched, Audi executives mentioned the term “B5”. To many less familiar with the brand this innocuous alphanumeric may not have meant much, but to those dialed in it meant something very special. It meant this new littlest Audi sedan has big shoes to fill.

One of the great things about an Audi S-car has always been the combination of strong performance with every day livability, particularly in snowy climates. 2013/2014 is proving to be a robust winter thus far, and cars like the recently refreshed Audi S5 are well suited to weather the cold in updated style.

Driven: 2014 Audi RS 7

When it comes to the Audi RS 7, I plead the 5th. I refuse to recount who’s driving or the exact state (other than heady euphoria) in which we’re driving, somewhere near the California/Nevada border. I refuse to reveal any of these details on the grounds they may incriminate my co-driver or me as we blast down a lonely stretch of long and straight tarmac at 140 mph while tucked behind a second grey RS 7.

Driven: 2014 Audi SQ5 3.0 TFSI

by on 1 October 2013 in Reviews & Road Tests

Car or SUV? Half empty or half full? This is just a sampling of the unavoidable interrogative tone that indevitably surfaces when a European marque dials up the performance and affixes suggestive chrome letters to the back side of a crossover… all while sought-after performance wagons remain on the other side of the pond. Such is the state of being for a crossover like the 354 hp Audi SQ5. More…

Driven: 2014 Audi R8 V10 plus S tronic

Cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway just north of Malibu, I fight the urge to divert my eyes from the road and focus on the large houses nestled up in the hills as I curiously scan for the certainly fictitious pad of Tony Stark (a.k.a. Iron Man). Unlike the homes I’m ogling, Stark’s abode isn’t east of PCH. It’s likely too good to be true, portrayed on the silver screen as mounted high atop a cliff that sits above the cresting waves of the Pacific Ocean. So far as I can tell, no such real estate nor cliff exists that close to the Pacific unless it’s in Stan Lee’s imagination. I turn back to the road and reach out, pressing the Sport button on the transmission of the 2014 Audi R8 V10 plus that I’m driving. I ease my foot off the throttle as I begin to roll toward a yellow light that will go red imminently. More…

Compared: 2013 Audi S6 vs. 2013 Audi S7

by on 25 February 2013 in Reviews & Road Tests

Though based on the same platform and sharing the same drivetrain, the new S6 sedan and S7 Sportback are distinctly different cars. We hit the winding roads of the undulating and slithering Hudson River Valley in upstate New York in order to get a taste and also to catalog the differences.
