Styling Size-up: 2018 Range Rover Velar vs. The Competition

  Styling Size-up: 2018 Range Rover Velar vs. The Competition The all-new 2018 Range Rover Velar appeared out of nowhere to fill in the “white space” between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.The Velar features a high-mounted trapezoidal front grille that shares the same top plane as the headlights. In comparison, the Q5's large hexagonal grille dominates the entire front end, while the F-Pace's roundish grille sits about mid-height and the Macan's hexagonal grille sits low in the fascia.

The coupe and convertible use a 220-hp 2 . 0 -liter four-cylinder with a six-speed manual; an eight-speed automatic is optional. Jump to Instrumented Test – 2018 Audi A 5 2 . 0 T Coupe Automatic .

2018 Audi A 5 2 . 0 T Coupe Automatic . Author Audi A 5 Coupe Date May 2, 2017. The if-it-ain’t-broke proceed to regulating things apparently translates good into German since we have to flicker your eyes to see how Audi has altered a A 5 with this new-for- 2018 redesign.


The if-it-ain’t-broke approach to fixing things apparently translates well into German because you have to squint your eyes to see how Audi has altered the A5 with this new-for-2018 redesign. Wheelbase and overall length are a touch longer, while height is the same and width is down by a mere 0.3 inch. The grille, headlamps, and taillamps all have broader proportions, and those zeppelin-like creases in the hood are apparently how Audi’s metal benders earn their pay. The clamshell hood is a lovely touch, and we’re also fond of the subtle upward and outward sweep of the rear fender creases. If your lifestyle hungers for low-key elegance, this A5 delivers.

Audi Q8 e-tron Caught Frolicking in the Snow with Q7 Sibling

  Audi Q8 e-tron Caught Frolicking in the Snow with Q7 Sibling Our photo sleuths scored some snaps recently of a test mule of the upcoming Audi Q8 e-tron. It was caught frolicking in the snow shortly after the Q8 Concept made its debut at the 2017 Detroit auto show. Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Mazda) Model (e.g. CX-5) Ingolstadt is obviously still hard at work testing its SUV showstopper ahead of its 2018 potential debut. It's built on the same platform as the Audi Q7, which can be seen here testing with its sibling for comparison.

Going Deeper

The best stuff is inside. While the turbocharged, intercooled, and direct-injected 2.0-liter inline-four carries over its iron block and longitudinal orientation, there are worthwhile gains in both power (up from 220 to 252 horsepower) and torque (which increases from 258 to 273 lb-ft). As before, Quattro all-wheel drive is standard, and buyers may choose between a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic with three operating modes and paddle shifters. Audi claims the new multilink front suspension improves steering precision and that weight has been methodically trimmed throughout the car. Dropping one gear from the automatic transmission, adopting new aluminum front-suspension components, and other measures yielded a 65-pound weight savings over a similarly equipped 2016 Audi A5 we tested.

2018 Audi TT RS to Debut at New York International Auto Show

  2018 Audi TT RS to Debut at New York International Auto Show According to Audi, the 2018 Audi TT RS will be the most powerful TT ever produced. Powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder producing 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, Audi has yet to announce the weight of the 2018 TT RS, but we do know it will rocket to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. Research Research New Used New & Used Make (e.g. Chevrolet) Model (e.g. Equinox) Thanks to the engine's aluminum construction, the 2.5-liter TFSI engine is a whopping 57 pounds lighter than the outgoing engine.

This 2018 edition has Quattro all-wheel drive, a huge sunroof, three-zone automatic climate control, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as standard equipment. Interestingly, Audi charges the same $43,775 base price for both manual and automatic versions. Our two-pedal test car was a Premium Plus model, which is a $3000 step up from the base Premium (adding heated 10-way adjustable front seats, LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, satellite radio, audio-visual parking aids, and other equipment). It was outfitted with a $2600 navigation package (which includes Audi’s Virtual Cockpit electronic instrument cluster), a $1250 S line Sport package (front sport seats with four-way lumbar adjustments, sport suspension, and a few décor items), a $950 Bang & Olufsen audio system, an $800 19-inch wheel and low-profile summer-tire package, and Florett Silver Metallic paint costing an extra $575. The full $52,950 tab is less than you’d spend for a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350.

Rather than the run-of-the-mill GLC’s 2.0L I-4 turbo, the GLC63 and GLC63 Coupe essentially double displacement and output to a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V-8 producing a rousing 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Need even more fire-breathing horsepressure? Then step up to the GLS63 S Coupe, which serves up 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

New 2018 Audi A 5 2 . 0 T Premium Plus Coupe JA005048 For Sale/Lease Dallas, TX. Engine : 2L 4-Cylinder TFSI 7-SPEED AUTOMATIC S TRONIC quattro. Exterior Color : Matador Red Interior Color : BLACK. Stock # : JA005048.

The indulgent option load didn’t hamper the new A5 at the test track. Its combination of lighter weight, more power, and greater torque multiplication in the first three gears clipped more than a second from both the 6.1-second zero-to-60-mph acceleration and the 14.7-second quarter-mile elapsed time we measured for the aforementioned 2016 A5. In fact, this A5’s 5.0-second-flat rush to 60 beats every 2.0-liter-turbo direct competitor we’ve clocked—a BMW 428i, a Cadillac ATS 2.0T, a Mercedes-Benz C300, and a Lexus RC200t—plus a few notable six-cylinder rivals—a BMW 435i, a Cadillac ATS 3.6, a 3.6-liter Chevy Camaro, and a Ford Mustang packing 3.7 liters. Chalk it up not so much to the A5’s 252 horsepower but to the dual-clutch automatic’s quick handoffs during upshifts and the Quattro driveline that squanders not one iota of energy on wheelspin. (The listed competitors all were rear-drive, and three were equipped with manual transmissions.)

Proving it’s no one-trick pony, the new A5 excelled in other track tests. The Continental ContiSportContact 5P radials hung tight on the skidpad to the tune of 0.93 g, topping the field by 0.01 to 0.05 g. Fade-free stopping from 70 mph in 152 feet bested BMW’s 428i by 12 feet and the Lexus RC by 19. Its 76-decibel noise level during flat-out acceleration is quieter than Cadillac’s ATS coupe by three to seven decibels.

Real-World Ability

What’s more impressive is how the A5 blends its dynamic skills with a thoughtfully configured cabin to deliver impressive back-road strafing ability. You’re well restrained by a laterally firm seat, properly supported from shoulder to knee, and hanging onto a perfectly contoured and leather-clad three-spoke wheel. If you’re tardy clicking the plastic upshift paddle, the transmission delivers a crisp upshift at the 6750-rpm redline. The brake pedal goes to work at the top of its swing and is calibrated to deliver predictable stopping force for each incremental increase in pressure. Body roll is tightly constrained, yet the wheels never go stiff-legged over bumps and swells.

When you crowd the adhesion limit, the front tires let you know what’s up with a soft moan. Dial in more steering lock and the rears begin drifting wide half a step after the fronts. Quick, well-weighted steering offering hints of what’s going on at the pavement helps nail your desired line. But the S line Sport package and the 19-inch wheels with summer tires—options totaling $2050—are essential if you’re serious about exploiting all of this coupe’s agility.

That investment also empowers the A5’s street-stealth mode. You can bomb around town expeditiously because the engine is quiet at work, the tires never shriek, and body roll is so tightly contained. While some sports coupes are a spectacle even at modest velocities, this silver bullet vectors through traffic like an unmarked patrol car.

Refreshed 2018 Jaguar F-Type Gains 296-HP Turbo 2.0L Ingenium I-4

  Refreshed 2018 Jaguar F-Type Gains 296-HP Turbo 2.0L Ingenium I-4 <p>Limited-edition 400 Sport supercharged V-6 model also debuts</p>In the F-Type, the Ingenium gas engine makes 296 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and is mated exclusively to the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. Jaguar just introduced the Ingenium gas engine in the 2018 XE, F-Pace, and XF, where the turbo-four is tuned to 247 hp and 269 lb-ft. Jag's previous turbocharged 2.0-liter was derived from a Ford design. Four-cylinder F-Type models can be spotted by the single rectangular center-mounted exhaust tip.

Thanks to its yawning trunk space and split-folding rear seatbacks, the A5 is a fine weekend warrior; cargo up to six feet in length lies flat. And although its roofline suggests otherwise, this coupe will accommodate four adults on date night. High-mounted switches on the front bucket seats release the backrests and power the front seats to their forward stops. Squeezing through the entry crevice requires a yogi’s flexibility, but the griping quickly subsides when rear passengers discover all the head-, leg-, and elbow room at their disposal. The bottom cushions are contoured for comfort and raised high enough that knees aren’t jammed into chins. Claustrophobia isn’t a concern due to the svelte pillars and large expanses of side glass. Unfortunately, the gap between front and rear center consoles is so tight that if a rear occupant wishes to change sides, they’re better off exiting the A5 and repeating the entry rigmarole via the opposite door.

While panel gaps and overall interior quality were flawless in our test car, in terms of design, this A5 is more a placeholder than a great stride forward rivaling those Audi has achieved in the past. Some staff members felt the matte-black leather and plastic surfaces accented by strategic bits of polished, knurled, or etched metal lacked warmth. To appease those who feel the contempo-tech look doesn’t jibe with the $50,000-plus price, the A5’s options list includes three alternative leather hues and walnut or oak paneling in place of the etched aluminum.

Audi Announces Plans for Q4 and Q8 Production

  Audi Announces Plans for Q4 and Q8 Production <p>SUVs will arrive later this decade</p>In 2019, Audi will begin production of the Q4 in Gyr, Hungary. Here, it will join the Q3, which is destined to transfer from its current facility in Martorell, Spain in 2018.

For 2018 , the Audi A 5 and S5 coupe gets two new engines to choose from — a 2 . 0 -liter I-4 or a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6. Transmission choices for the A 5 are a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic or a six-speed manual.

At least every paddle, switch, and control knob is well placed and works in an intuitive manner. The 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is reconfigurable to accommodate crystal-clear instruments and navigation displays. The 7.0-inch center screen that begs to be touched is in fact commanded quite nicely by a large, console-mounted rotary knob with a couple of switches on the steering wheel to help with audio adjustments.

It’s a shame this A5 isn’t more of an extrovert because its class-leading performance warrants a serious look from anyone shopping premium coupes. At least Audi is nurturing the A5 family with convertible and Sportback (four-door hatchback) editions, plus a 450-hp RS5 due next year to backstop the currently available 354-hp S5. Clearly, those growing up and out of rowdy V-8 coupes have never had it so good.
